The art to job seeking is not to apply to as many jobs as you can.
It is important to figure out what kind of job you want to do before you start applying, so you can really focus your job search.
Here are 6 reasons this is so important:
It means you don’t waste time applying for jobs you don’t even want to do. Job applications can take a long time, it is important to focus that time on your real goal.
You’ll avoid being hired by a job you don’t want and missing out on one you do want. What happens if working somewhere you have no interest in means you’re not finding that ideal job you could have got?
You will know the job descriptions well, because you actually want the job and all the descriptions should be around your one focus. This means you will be better prepared for interviews, knowing exactly what the company needs from you.
You won’t need to keep changing what your profile says to be relevant. If you have one focus it should be relevant for all the positions you apply for.
You won’t waste your time at interviews, only for you to be unsure and turn it down, or leave after you start because it’s not right for you. It not only wastes your time, but the employers’ as well.
You can look at industry-specific websites for tips and tricks in the field and really get to grips with what you need to know.
Job searching can get desperate sometimes, but focus your job search on what you want to do, and you will be better prepared to go into it.
You will also avoid wasting time on jobs that you don’t want, and jobs that might mean you miss out on a great one.
