5 Creative Ways To Find A Job - Job Search Tips - Points Negotiate to avoid


Okay, you've applied to every job board on the internet, as well as Monster, CareerBuilder, and HotJobs.
You've made follow-up calls and networked till your face is blue.
You take the newspaper every Sunday and apply for every job in your industry, with little to no success.
So, here are some unusual ways to locate work.

1. Half of your resume should be sent
Look for a company where you want to work.
Write an excellent cover letter that explains why you are a good fit for the job and refers to the accompanying CV.
Don't put a resume in the mail and don't seal it.
They'll believe the resume was misplaced in the mail.
They'll call and have a talk with you.

2. Write a Letter of Interest
Make use of direct mail's effectiveness.
Identify five to ten businesses.
Ask your contact network whether they know anyone who works at any of the companies on your list in a letter.
Send your CV to a contact who indicates they know someone on your list and ask them to pass it to their contact or get permission to send it yourself.

3. Chain Letter via E-mail
Make a list of 20 firms you'd like to work for and send an email to everyone you know asking if anyone knows someone who works for them.
If they do, ask them to contact you so you may ask for a reference.
Finally, request that they transmit your email to someone else.

4. Make A Booklet and Distribute It
Make a booklet with information about your industry and distribute it.
Everyone appreciates free information, and you've demonstrated your skill by providing it.
Distribute the pamphlet electronically and on newsgroups where recruiting managers can see it.

5. Human Resources should be contacted.
Isn't that insane?
Make a phone call to the human resources department.
Inquire about the outside agency or third-party recruiting firm they work with.
They'll inquire as to why you wish to know.
Tell them you're seeking for a suggestion because their company isn't looking for someone with your skill set right now. The agency may be dealing with other companies.
They might want you to come in for an interview.
At the very least, you'll get a lead.
They'd do it.

These are guerrilla methods that can help you achieve better outcomes.
Keep your muscles toned for the next five inventive ideas.

Job Search Tips That Increase Your Success

1) Treat job hunting as if it were a full-time job, which it is.
If you worked, you'd go to work at the same time every day (say, 8 a.m.), take an hour (or less) for lunch, and leave at the same time every day (like 5 pm).
Every week, you'd work five days.
And you'd strive extremely hard to achieve as much as possible because your job depended on it.

When you're looking for work, you should stick to the same routine because your future depends on it.

2) Approach finding a job as if it were a project. That means you should set goals for yourself, make plans, and monitor your progress. You should apply all of the tools and skills that you used in your last job to the project of finding your next job.

As you must expect, this is an important project. The sooner you complete it, the sooner you gain a promotion into a job.

3) Be your own boss. Set expectations for what you need to accomplish, provide direction, and monitor your work.

Meet with yourself once each week to evaluate your performance. I recommend doing this by writing two reports. The first is a candid evaluation of what you accomplished during the previous week. The second is a description of your plans for the coming week. Your plans should include your goals, actions, and priorities.

The first time that you write these reports, write an evaluation of what you have done so far. Describe the results that this effort has produced. And compare these results with what you wanted to have.

Next, map out a realistic plan for the next week based on achievable goals. For example, you could set goals for the number of people you will call, the number of networking meetings you will attend, and the research you will conduct.

In the coming weeks, compare the results that you obtained during the previous week with the goals that you set. For example, if you planned to attend twelve networking meetings and you attended only two, you should a) explain why this happened and b) plan actions that will correct such a difference. You should also analyze why you missed your goal because this provides insights on what you need to do differently. For example, Your goal (e.g., of attending twelve networking meetings) may have been set too high. Or maybe there are things you can do that will make it easier to achieve your job search goals, such as car pooling with a friend who is also looking for a job.

Finding a job is a full time job. Work through it with a plan and the support of a good boss (yourself).

Points You Should Negotiate When You Are Losing Your job..

When you're about to lose your job, there are three things you should talk about.

You work for a company that has experienced a lot of turbulence and change.
You've heard rumors of layoffs and are concerned that you'll be next.
If you've been an excellent employee and are being let off for no reason, make sure you ask these three questions when you get your Pink Slip:

1. Request a letter of recommendation.
You can utilize this to assist you acquire that new job because having a letter that compliments you and your accomplishments will be advantageous.
This will demonstrate to potential employers that your termination was due to a business decision rather than any wrongdoing on your side.

2. Find out if severance money is available.
Unless it was mentioned in your employment contract when you were employed, you are not automatically guaranteed this.
One week of severance is usually paid for each year of service with the company, however this can be negotiated.
And, especially if you've recently completed a significant project, been recognized, or achieved a significant objective, make sure to remind them.
It might buy you another week of severance compensation that you weren't expecting.

3. Do you have any unused vacation pay?
The majority of the time, the answer is no.
Some firms allow you to carry over unused vacation time from year to year, while others have a "use it or lose it" policy.
The majority of businesses will clarify their policies.

You may not be entitled to severance or vacation compensation, especially if you do not request it.
Remember that your manager is in a difficult circumstance as well, so he or she may be willing to give you more than was originally anticipated.
You won't know unless you give it a go, and the worst they can say is no.
If the moment passes, there's a good possibility you won't get another chance to ask these questions.
Knowing what to ask for ahead of time may give you the confidence to speak up for yourself during this trying moment.
Best of luck!
