Five Ways Job-Seekers Sabotage Themselves

blog.gr8jobsng

I talk with job-seekers all day long. Before I hear their stories, I see their resumes. Most resumes are boring. They all sound alike. They are full of business jargon like "Motivated self-starter with superior communication skills." You would never know that behind the awful resume is a funny, vibrant person you'd love to know. The first way most job-seekers sabotage their own efforts to get a new job is in their resumes and their LinkedIn profiles, both of which tend to be awful...

Students: Dial Up Your Employability With Online Connections

blog.gr8jobsng

You don’t need to have come from a privileged background to get a job through contacts – get online and make connections yourself. Students are repeatedly told that a degree will no longer guarantee a job. In competitive industries you almost always need more: a master’s (maybe), heaps of work experience (probably), and critically, contacts. Contacts can make all the difference in sectors where getting your foot in the door is tough. I’ve seen those around me land internships, places on graduate schemes and other jobs through a friend-of-a-friend’s-mum-whose-cousin-twice-removed knew someone...

JOB SATISFACTION VERSUS SALARY WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT

blog.gr8jobsng

What I've seen is that there is a significant portion of people who truly do enjoy their jobs-and most of them make good money. This is because people are satisfied when they are good at something. And when people become really good at something, they become a scarce commodity. Scarcity translates to value, which of course means money. So, if you're looking for practical advice, I would say find out what you enjoy and can become great at, and then try to maximize your job satisfaction by providing value, not by looking for the biggest paycheck. The exceptions to the value = pay rule tell us a lot about which is more important. Truly great high school teachers can live comfortably, but the top 1% generally don't get paid more than average teachers. The teachers, full time parents, firefighters, toll booth workers, wait staff, etc. who are really great at what they do take pride in their work, and they'll...

Typos and grammatical errors. Your CV needs to be grammatically perfect. It must be proof read thoroughly.
