Careers Advice: Get the job you want, even if you think you can’t

For many job seekers, particularly if you have been job hunting for a while with no results, finding a job can be discouraging.

Even if your confidence tells you that you can’t get the job you are looking for, there are ways to get it.

Here are 5 tips to get the job you want, even if you think you can’t:

Research – Once you know what you want, research what skills and qualifications you need. You can’t expect to land yourself into the job without knowing how or putting any work in.

Focus – Focus your resume and your searches on the industry you are interested in. You won’t get the job you want if you’re not applying for it, because you’re applying for something else.

Courses – If you need to take extra courses or gain qualifications to get into the career, look at where you can do this. But remember, even jobs that need qualifications will often have ways in based on experience.

Easier communication – It might seem like the employer of your dream job is beyond reach or communication. But there are ways to make a mark and get noticed when you do reach out. Found allows you to chat directly with employers once you’ve been shortlisted, to shine above the others.

Work experience – Gain as much experience as you can in your chosen field, so you can build contacts and learn valuable skills to show off in your profile.

It might seem like your dream job is beyond reach. But applying for the job alone, is not enough. Sometimes you need to start from the bottom and work at the experience and qualifications. The key aspect is focusing your search, so you know exactly what you need to do to get there.
