Without being influenced by anyone, ask yourself these questions, and the answers you get will determine a lot…
Whether you’re in the process of finding your first job, or you’ve worked before and now you just want to make a fresh start or your next step, it’s necessary to gather your strength a little like Daniel-san in Karate Kid. Finding a job is not always an “attack”, sometimes it assumes that you have spent some time “learning” yourself. So here are some questions that are good to ask yourself.
1. Do I know what I want?
It’s a tough question. Many of us do it all the time to ourselves and we do not get a clear answer. But trying to give an answer is helpful (even if that answer is not final or final). For example: What type of positions have you imagined yourself working in? What fascinates you the most? Where do you think you would dedicate with more pleasure? The answer “I would like to be an income earner in Fiji” is a popular answer, but we don’t guarantee that it will help you!
2. Do I have the skills to get the job I want? If not, am I doing what I have to do to get them?
Each job requires some necessary skills. A programmer needs to know popular programming languages, a salesperson must have sales and negotiation skills, a professor must have updated knowledge and transmissibility. As the years go by, these skills change and modernize. Do you have what you need? Go to the classifieds you are interested in, see what the employers are asking for and do your self-assessment. If you see that you lack basic skills, don’t wait: start developing them now.
3. Do I intend to spend time finding a job?
We’ve said it before and we’ll never get tired of saying it: Looking for a job is a full-time job. Which means you have to take the time and effort to do it well. You have to meticulously research the positions and companies that you think would suit you, talk to your surroundings, network constructively, shape your CV, build a portfolio. Looking for a job doesn’t mean I send the same and unchanging CV when you get a job to all companies. You need to see what each company is asking for and what culture each company is asking for and sending material (CV + introductory text or cover letter) that will pique the interest of your future employer and make him think: “Here is a case of a candidate who seems to have searched for it before sending”! It will be a pleasant surprise for them.4. Is my CV really good?
Since we talked about biographies, let’s say this: Unfortunately, several CVs out there are sloppy, have no “character”, have spelling and typographical errors, or are huge. This means that their “owner” did not take care of them as much as one might expect. See step by step how to make a winner-CV here.
Food for thought: What does it mean when you send a sloppi CV? That the employer will be afraid that you will handle your job with the same sloppiness if they hire you. The CV is the first sample of work received by our future employer.
5. What do I have that not many others have?
What will grab the attention of a future employer, is to find by observing in, that you have something special. B.C.:
You are very good at interpersonal communication.
You find solutions to deadlocks and problems.
You have a professional certificate that not many people have.
You have created with your friends your own professional project (even if you have not made any money from it, the point is to have been actively involved).
So take stock and ask yourself: Will my future employer find a good reason to prefer me over the competition? What sets me apart? What is my USP (Unique Selling Proposition), as we say in business? Once you discover your secret super-power, you will be able to present yourself more confidently, e.g. when you find yourself in an interview.
6. Do I know my priorities?
In an ideal world we would not need to have priorities. We could have a job that would combine all of them:
It would be close to our house
It would have a good salary package
He wouldn’t have many responsibilities
It would leave us a lot of free time
It would have nice offices
Would give additional benefits
It would have opportunities for growth
It would have ideal coworkers
It would give us prestige
It would give us flexibility
Unfortunately such a job does not exist (if there is, do not think to ever leave it!), so you have to decide with yourself, what you are giving priority to. You have to make compromises on certain criteria.
7. Am I aiming for the right jobs?
Task targeting is like a circle with darts. If you aim too low in relation to your skills (i.e. in positions that are for much more junior/beginners), you will probably not succeed in the cycle. If you aim too high (i.e. in positions that ask for much more skills and experience than you have), you will not be a job again! The point is to target classifieds and open positions that are close to your level.
8. Do I take all the necessary actions?
To get you to your dream job, most of the time it’s not enough just to find ads and send applications. You have to do much more: clean up your social media from “dangerous” posts, join a community with people who have the same work interests as you, receive newsletters on work, keep track of developments in your industry, not let any good opportunity go to waste.

that is over i think its 08 question.
