You finished your studies thinking about your dream job. Now, as
you are out of college its time to look out for that job and prove yourself
competitive for it. There are certain things which you must keep in mind as a
job seeker and hunt accordingly.
Set a goal for your job hunt
Rather than applying to every job published in the newspaper or on the Internet
its better that you try to analyze your candidature and skills
& understand the type of profile you can fit into. Apply to opening
relevant to your interest, your chances of success will increase.
Hunt job at all relevant places
The corporate world today has changed a lot. The openings are not published just

play a vital role. Apply to relevant jobs through newspapers, placement
websites and consultants. Float your CV in the market for the companies and
consultants to consider it for their requirements. Don't miss attending
the job fares.
An opportunity doesn't see time to knock at your door. Keep yourself prepared to
answer an interview call at anytime. Don't miss on the opportunities
because of your lazy attitude.
Follow up your job application

days, it is a good idea to follow up your application with the concerned
person. This will give you an idea about the status of your application and
also help you in proving your seriousness for the particular job.
Try to get in touch with the decision maker
Try to look out for the decision maker and send your application directly to
him/her unless asked to send at a particular address.
Don't overstress with your job hunt
Don't let job hunt overpower yourself. Good things take time
to come. Keep trying and be patient.
Avoid negative thinkers
Keep yourself away from negative thinkers. Being surrounded by negative
thinkers reduces your level of confidence and chances to perform properly in
