With the unemployment rate on the rise and the price for every items increasing, finding a way to make ends meet is becoming increasingly difficult. The International Labour Organizing reported more than 197 million people globally are out of work in 2012. That is approximately 6% of the world’s workforce without a viable means of income.
Hi, Wes Pierre here and I’m here to tell you that finding a real job in today’s economy just became as easy as pushing a button.
If you are looking for a real job whether that may be a part time job, full time job, summer job, or a work at home job then the first thing you need to do is to believe that you can get a job. Without that positive mentality, then every job that you apply for and don’t get will just drag your moral down and discourage you.
Once you have that positive mindset, then you need to be ready to search for a job. I’ve taking the liberty to post a few job sites to the side to help with your search.
Applying for a job can always seem like a hectic and confusing process. So in order to take a little bit of confusion out of it, I’ve developed a few simple guidelines to help you on your way.
First- you need to have a resume ready. A resume is a document that gives employers facts about you and you experiences such as special skills, achievements and education. You could be the most talented person in the world and possess the experience to perfectly fill a job but if your resume does not catch employers’ attention, then you will never get a chance to prove it or be noticed. Asides from poor spelling and grammar the biggest mistake that people make when writing resumes is that they actually re-write the job description their applying for. Employers don’t want to know what the job description is. They want to know what qualifies you for the job. To learn how to write a proper job description you have to think about what you can do for your employer.
Once you have your resume set up or even if you don’t have a resume ready, then what you need to do to get your name out there. Most people are not lucky enough to have a job land right on their lap. If they are then that’s great, as for the rest of us, we need to do some leg work. Sure we could go out and find different places that are hiring but chances are we won’t be running into that many job opportunities. We need to expand our horizon and look for jobs that we wouldn’t normally find just by taking a stroll down our neighborhood. The best way to do that is by searching online and putting you r name out there. I have put together a list of top search engines that makes putting your name out there and finding a job easy.
