job hunter

Sometimes, it can be frustrating when it seems that you’ve done all the right things for a better and successful job search, yet you’re still unsuccessful.

The fact is that their is a large number of unemployed people searching for the same job, so competition is always high.

While some frequently change jobs with less effort, others are so scared to leave their comfort zone – their current jobs. What is the difference? There are some job hunting secrets you don’t really know; and Human Resource Managers, HR are not always willing to divulge such secrets publicly. As revealed, let’s consider these all important 6 top job search secrets that could help you find your dream job

1. Good recommendation can give you the job

This is what people call “Connection”. Instead of applying endlessly to all job roles on the internet, spend time networking. Applying for a job you are qualified for, might land you an interview but it doesn’t guarantee you the job.

All you need is just a recommendation from anyone who is an insider in that firm and BOOOM you have that job! I have worked in different organizations and two of them came without stress (Recommendation).

2. There is always that special candidate among job applicants

I remember applying for a job that I was recommended for. Most of them saw me as the underdog as they continued to discuss among themselves. They never knew that I already had a pre-discussion with the man that was to interview us, and the reason for me being with them was just for official record purpose.

You see a large number of people who are waiting for that interview; there is someone who knows that he has the job already. You might ask yourself “So why the need to conduct the interview?”

It is because they want to know if there is someone who is actually far better than the “Special” candidate. Once all of you perform within the same range in the interview, the candidate is chosen with ease.

3. The more your skills, the better your chances of getting the job

When next you are invited for an interview, always ask yourself “What can I offer aside from my job role?” Don’t bother thinking about “Team Player, Numerical skills, Analytical skills.” All those are jack and bull skills.

Companies are looking to cut down on labor cost, and they are willing to hire someone who possesses various skills in his armory. If can’t answer the above question, no need hoping and waiting when they tell you “We will get back to you.” I hope you have known this job secret

4. Some job sectors don’t really value B.Sc. results

Ever wondered why ICT experts change jobs with ease? It is because they are problem solvers in any organization. Without them, an organization can’t survive. Can you imagine a Bank without an ATM? or you can imagine a bank that can’t solve cash dispensing error?

The truth is that most ICT experts prefer working for themselves than working for any organization, which makes the demand for ICT experts greater than the supply of experts they get. All they need is your certification that shows you have passed through the learning stage process and your ability to do what you have learned.

5. Candidates with ICT certifications get considered first

It might sound like the normal witty washy story you have always heard but I bet you’ve never thought about it. Certifications like PMP, SAGE, ITIL, CCNA, CCNP, Advanced Excel, MOS, and IC3 makes you look like a professional.

If you are banking that your BSc is your best shot, then I guess that you might keep waiting to feed on the crumbs that the big players will leave for you.

Bill Gates said, “Technology won’t replace Jobs; People with ICT skills will replace those without ICT skills.” When next they are firing the cashiers and customer service guys in a bank, ask why they haven’t fired the ICT gurus working as backroom staff of that same bank.

6. Better homework equals to better chances

When you’re getting ready for an interview, the more background information you have, the less anxious you’ll feel. And we’re not just talking about checking out your hiring manager’s social profile. Instead, look into the actual business.

Use the internet to make sure that you have good knowledge of the organization, and write down a few questions to ask the interviewer. Yes! Even interviewers get to answer question sometimes. Then try to find out the company’s main problems.

A good place to discover such is by reading customer complaints online. Thereafter, try detailing possible ways that you can help solve those problems. Or ways that you can add value to the company with your particular skills.

So, having gone through this piece of information, what will you do? Stop the procastination today and start taking actions now.

True and false,

Anyway, an employer once told me not to send him a CV. He rather wanted a list of what I could help his new factory achieve in three, six and 12 months.
