Job Seeking Do's and Don'ts
Searching for a job is a job in and of itself. This article sheds light on some of the many do's and don'ts of the job search.
Always fill out the application fully. Even though you may be attaching a resume as well, complete the resume. This is the first task the employer is asking you to do, not filling out the resume come across as not following orders or commands and usually will mean the employer will not even look at your resume.
Do attach a resume, even when one is not asked for. A resume is professional and shows that you are prepared and have gone the extra mile. A resume is also much more detailed than the application and can specifically talk about your qualifications, accomplishments and skills in reference of how they apply to the job you are applying to.
Attach a cover letter when sending a resume in through the mail, by fax or through email. Many times cover letters can also be copy and pasted into online employment forms as well. A cover letter is an introduction to who you are, a little bit about what you are looking for in a job and why you want to work for the company.
If you get an interview, bring a copy of the resume with you. Being prepared is important and being able to give the potential employer your resume again will look good and show that you are on top of things.
Bring a note pad and take notes. This is important when a company is conducting multiple interviews. You want to remember what was discussed in the first interview, before moving on to the next one. I also means you will be able to look back if a job offer is brought forth to make sure that everything is matching with what was discussed during the interview.
