1. Read the job description completely. Employers will want to only contact qualified candidates. Un-trained - Un-experienced Job seekers should not apply, unless training is offered.
2. Do not have a Confusing resume. When HR or a manager can't understand what you do or what you applied for your resume, in most, cases is dumped.
3. Grammar and spelling are important in the online application process. Many online systems have spell check and will dump communications for spelling.
4. Research the company before your interview. Many Job seekers cannot talk intelligently about the company they are interviewing with.
5. Dress-up properly for your interview. You control this part of the interview. Present yourself as a pleasant, “I-Can-Do-This-Job” person.
6. Have good email correspondence. If a company emails you with possible interview times, respond in an intelligent manner. “Etiquette”.
7. Show some excitement about the position during the interview. Employers want to see signs of connection between person & company.
8. Don’T Be LATE for the interview. If you are late for the interview, you are unreliable. Better an Hour Early than a Minute Late.
9. Be Sure you are qualified for the position you apply for. Research the company and the position -(new stuff is added to your-field all the time)- prep yourself - get a good nights sleep.
10. Be honest. It takes a lot of time to go through resumes. Give your summary of the facts and leave out the fluff – Ask for the Job, (“ if you want it “)
(“ let the interviewer know if you do not want the job “). Write it like it is, and when you interview, tell it like it is. Be ready to promote yourself for the work you will be doing. Be ready to explain any situation you have that may come up from your resume. Keep everything positive.
"Do-Not" talk negative about a past employer, or, about your Job Search. (a person can learn a lot about updates in their industry during their Job-Search). Good Luck to you in your future careers.
