No matter how much you want to get a job, when a letter inviting you for an interview drops on to the mat, don’t be surprised if your first reaction is to panic. It’s a perfectly natural response, especially if you’ve been at home, or at the same job, for several years and are out of practice at handling interviews.
Do you remember your job searching days? Attending on average 5 interviews a week…sending CVs around as if they were Christmas Cards…hoping that one is going to land on the right desk…half of them you don’t even receive a response of any kind.
This is your time to shine. When seeking a new career, the job interview is the process through which you, as a potential employee are evaluated by an employer for prospective employment in their organisation.
What are the odds of winning the national lottery?…about the same of getting a job by starting the application letter with “To Whom It May Concern” or “Dear Sir/Madam”. Email capabilities have made bulk employment queries too tempting. However, today’s cut throat job industry compels you to submit an application that stands out from the rest.
The most tedious chore for a candidate and the worst nightmare of any employer looking for a new staff member, is the search and selection process that could make or break your chances of getting a new job. So how do you deal with it?
