We’re looking for experienced personnel.
This is usually how fresh applicants get disappointed by employers. There are several reasons why employers do not wish to take fresh candidates. Campuses do not meet industry standards; due to lack of infrastructure at their campuses; students lack direction; parents may not facilitate, support or direct their children in a right way.
Sometimes they feel insecure and do not support children to pursue their passion. Have them join street side institutions and waste their time and money.
Here are few suggestions to improve yourself and learn the art of winning a job:
1. Never feel that you are a fresher. Feel that you have already spent a good amount of time as a working professional and have learnt the fundamentals and principles of your field.
2. Many candidates try to send bulk email to push their CV. Never do this. You’ll never get any response from them. Always practice to send one-by-one and with an SOP (Statement of Purpose) which clearly says what you can do for a prospective employer.
3. You must be aware of the nature of business of a prospective employer and their expectation from the candidates before you apply for any job. Always note that they need you more than you need them.
4. Remember, the technical manager is the one who will hire you not the HR. They respond to you when you demonstrate your value to them as a sample.
5. Practice learning new skills by unlearning and then re-learning. Never prepare a copy-paste CV. Prepare your own.
6.Make a habit of reading books/articles/blogs, etc. and writing a brief summary of it, which will give you an idea of what you understood and how you’re going to apply them for your career growth.
7. Getting a job is easy, but managing job and growing in your career is challenging.
8. Always try to chase the best employer.
9. You must be aware of fraudsters who charge amount from fresh graduates promising jobs in MNCs immediately/after thorough training.
10. Learn how to use social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Quora, etc.) for your career growth. Have separate accounts for your personal and professional life.
11. Change is certain; change incurs costs, but it pays off if you treat it as an investment.
