10. Proper Follow-up:
I was habitual to send one or two follow-up emails to the HR department. This does not mean you are irritating them, it will show your level of professionalism and interest in the job.
9. Send Emails for an Update:
After a few emails sent to the HR if you get a positive reply, then be assured that your chances to get hired are brighter. Even when you aren’t hired, your reputation is still built in a positive way.
8. Stay Confident:
Before landing my dream job, I appeared for various interviews. What made me prominent all the time was my level of confidence. Landing a perfect job requires you to stay confident before the interviewee.
7. Don’t be confused at All:
You should neither leave the hope nor show your confusions. Keep every confused thought within your heart and don’t let the HR know about it.
6. Peace of Mind:
If it seems that that hiring manager is interested in your services, this will definitely give you peace of mind. But that doesn’t mean you are to live an over-confident life. Just be what you are and wait for an appointment letter to approach your front door. If it doesn’t come, then feel happy thinking that some better candidate has been hired and move on.
5. Check on Opportunities:
Initially, all this will be problematic for you. But if you keep in mind all these things, I am sure you will enjoy the same great benefits I’m already enjoying with my great magazine writing job. So keep on checking other relevant opportunities as well instead of relying on one option.
4. Be Prepared:
You should be prepared for an interview all the time. The call can come any time so be ready to appear for the interview even after an hour of the call you receive from HR department.
3. Don’t be Over-Confident:
Confidence in yourself is good but over confidence cannot help you at all. Just be motivated and be focused, don’t show them that you are over confident and much competitive because who knows if someone better than you is going to be hired by the HR.
2. Reference is Must:
In today’s world when the things are getting much competitive a job cannot be gotten until you have some reference. Make sure to keep three to four references in hand and ask them to contact the HR after your job interview is over.
1. Prepare Professional CV:
A professional CV and resume will speak of your words. Get it designed by the professional CV preparation individuals and make sure it has all the information about your education, experience, skills, contact details and references.
