Every career-oriented individual will find that graduating is only half the battle won.
One of the hardest parts of building a career is finding the perfect job, and this is easier said than done.
First Stage: Creating the Perfect CV
Your first ever impression will be conveyed to your would-be employers through your CV.
Thus, your CV needs to be perfectly tailored to meet the requirements of the job.
Do not mention irrelevant experiences and details, your resume must place you as the best option for the job opening.
Second Stage: Searching for Job Vacancies
Search the market for a relevant job.
It helps to keep solid connections with your seniors. Ask your seniors about job openings at their end and apply wherever you see a suitable job offer.
Third Stage: Waiting for Call
Wait for that call!
This is probably the hardest thing that many job-seeking candidates have to do, wait for a call bearing some good news.
Make sure you mention multiple ways for your employer to contact you on your CV, so that if you are unavailable via one your employer might get hold of you through the second.
In the meantime, check your phone and mail at all times.
Fourth Stage: Preparing for Tests
You then need to prepare yourself for taking tests.
Practicing on old tests can help you immensely.
Mostly if companies tend to higher via tests, they do display samples of tests on their websites.
Fifth Stage: Giving the Test
Ace that test!
Many of the multinational companies now have a standard test to distinguish worthy candidates from the rest.
Sixth Stage: Secondary Test
Score on the specialized tests, most companies tend to take a secondary test, this test is much more specific than the first and helps to shortlist the candidates to a smaller group.
Seventh Stage: Interview Preparation
Conquer your interview; a little preparation can go a long way. Try finding out what the company or companies, in general, ask in their first interviews.
Have some answers up your sleeves, going in without any preparations is a foolish idea
Eighth Stage: Interview
Go in prepared for a bigger interview.
The first interview is just for the employer to judge your confidence level and way of thinking.
The second interview is conducted by people in the higher management and helps to judge your skills that are much more specific to the job.
Ninth Stage: Job Offer
Wait for the job offer.
Tenth Stage: Offer Acceptance
If you are lucky and talented enough to score a job offer from the company of your choosing then don’t wait long to send an acceptance notification.
The job offers have a validity period, take good note of that.
