Tips to Start Your Career

Making a career is an almost lifelong process. Climbing the career ladder is directly related to your personal growth. This is not an easy walk. You can compare this to running a marathon. Below tips that will help you along the career path.


You Must Act Professionally

You must be professional when applying for a job. Check with the company regarding their requirements before applying; avoid jargon in a job interview; write a very good personalized letter to the employer; Before sending it to the company double check the letter. Your letter should be to the point.

Show Your value

Every product on the market has a certain value for buyers. We pay more for some goods just because they have well-known brands. You also need to learn to present yourself to employers so that they choose you and not some other candidate.


Always Disregard Negative Information's

There have been many reports in the media recently that youth unemployment is high. Don’t pay attention to them so you don’t sink into the mire of depression. Look for helpful information to help you find your first job.

Achieve Your Goals Actively

Always remember, a career doesn’t happen by itself, you have to do it yourself. To make it easier to understand the seriousness of pursuing a career, you can compare yourself to a marathon runner, or someone climbing Everest.


Search Your Job Upside Down

Most people apply for a lot of job offers and only later look for more detailed information about the company for which the job offer was applied for. We recommend that you search for a job first by looking at the company - a potential employer and only then when applying for a company job offer.


Built a Very Good Network

Ask the person you trust to list at least a few people he or she knows who work in the professional field you are interested in. Meet those people and talk about activities, hint that you are looking for a job. At the end of the interview, ask these people to list at least a few people they know who work in the professional field you are interested in. This way, your job search will gain momentum.


Find a Good Supporter

When looking for a job during this particularly difficult period for candidates, you must not lose hope that the day will come when you will finally be hired. You will be stronger if you have a friend or teacher who will support you no matter what happens.

Be an Attractive Candidate

Employers looking for more detailed information about candidates evaluate two things, namely: the candidate’s abilities and his or her connections. All of this can be created by properly presenting yourself on social networks such as Facebook
