Job search is an art in itself, maybe you sit impatiently and endlessly fill out the online forms to then hear nothing back. Here are some tips:
Before you apply for a job, there are some issues to take care of. Take a moment and ask yourself:
- What do I want?
- Why do I want it?
The want´s and why´s are as important as your values and vision.
Check the company you are interested in working for.
It has never been easier to get information about a company as it is today. Their website is your tool in order to get the right information about the company. Three things to look up are the company's:
The mission is telling you exactly what they are doing and selling. The vision gives you information about how they foresee future expansion. The values, will tell you how much and what they care for regarding employees, customers and newcomers. What do they believe in?
If you find all this information on their website, they have done their homework. It takes many hours, maybe weeks to put mission, vision and values in writing. Decisions the committee has taken in order to be implemented within the entire organization, how the company should be and will be run.
Is this a job for you? Make an assessment.
1. Revise your values.
2. Revise your vision.
3. Revise your mission.
If your values, mission and vision match the employer's you will feel much more secure about whether you want to apply for the job or not.
The introduction letter shows that you are motivated, eager and knowledgeable.
Describe in your letter of introduction:
1. My challenges.
2. What I am best at.
3. My contribution.
These three important ingredients will help you to form a really exciting letter explaining why you are skilled and outstanding and why you should be chosen over the other applicants.
