HR Tips For Jobseekers

Hello Everyone! Trust you are doing great and finding the content of this blog useful in one way or the other.

Well today, we are dishing out HR Tips for jobseekers and also those looking for employment transition. Take out time to read trough. Cheers!


  • Be Open to Advice

It is very okay to ask people for advice! Ever too often jobseekers think they have to sell themselves as this know-it-all hot-shot to get the job, but the best way to build relationships with people whom you intend to work with (or for) is to start by being vulnerable, sharing your admiration for their business and work, and asking for advice. It is recommended this is done with professionals at prospective companies, long before they have a job opening.

  • Don't always follow your passion.

"Follow your passion". This is one of the most common pieces of career wisdom, It is also quite misleading. A close study of people who end up loving their work has shown that most of them did not follow a pre-existing passion. Instead, their passion for their work developed over time as they got better at what they did and took more control over their career."

We are not saying that job seekers should completely disregard their passions-but we believe that "challenging this conventional wisdom is crucial, especially since research shows most employees are unhappy in their jobs."

  • Create your position.

Don't expect and wait around for your "dream job" to be available. Study the industry or field that you plan to move into, and shortlist a company or two that you would like to work for or with. Figure out their challenges through research or public information. Once you are armed with this, you can craft a solution for them that you can share directly or publicly through a blog, for instance or forum or article writing engine. The intention here is to become visible through offering a solution to assist them with no expectation of getting anything in return."

  • Keep Calm & Maintain Your Cool.

When you are being interviewed for a job and it looks interesting and the company shows interest in you, it's a wonderful and an intoxicating feeling. It is not any different from the employer's perspective. When you meet a candidate who fits the bill with the right energy and experience you like and you start to think "I found the ideal candidate," you go through the same procedure.

You learn more about your candidate as you proceed with the interview, and you start to paint a mental picture of this person in the job.

The potential employee also starts to picture themselves in the job. Your conversations tend to get looser and more friendly. Finally you make a job offer. You hope they accept. Generally they do.

By the time you get to the end of a hiring process, your hiring manager wants to hire you as badly as you want the job. That's why it's so important to watch your manners and professionalism at the tail end of a recruiting process. Don't make a last-minute mistake that will cost you the job offer!
