Job Hunting Dos


Advice and tips on the main job hunting techniques(dos) to adopt when searching for suitable vacancies


Always identify in the first place, the type of job you want to apply for by listing salary, duties, and location etc. of the ideal position. Remember that personal circumstances should always determine the type of job you seek. How much would you be able to afford traveling to a job which pays a higher salary, rather than one nearby that offer less money? Do you suffer with arthritis? You might be applying for the position during Spring / Summer without remembering that winter travel can mean severe delays in trains, and hours will be spent standing on platforms. Will this affect any health conditions you might have?

-

Always identify your personal strengths and weaknesses before deciding to apply for a particular job, and then compare these to find out whether it is worthwhile applying for the job.

-

Always make a list of the jobs you want to apply for, and update the list at varied stages of your jobsearch activities. Many employers advertise for more than one week in the newspaper, so you do not want to send an application to a company you have approached the week before.

-

Always read the advertisement very carefully, making note of all the requirements, such as reference numbers, procedures for submitting the application, and whether the employer requests additional information such as a cover letter or details of your salary expectations.

-

Always word-process or type your cover letter unless the advertisement specifically requires you to hand-write the document.
