The 21 st Century has brought with it a wider and more diverse range of jobs than ever before. But that hasn’t really made the job hunt any easier. In fact, organisations have now become even more selective about hiring. Here are 10 tips to help you get your dream job:

1. EXPLORE EARLY:

The process of self-discovery is much easier when you’re young and have limited family responsibilities. So start exploring your dream job/s as early as you can to give yourself more scope for self- discovery and pursuing your passion. Do not rely merely on your qualification, academic performance, skill, aptitude and a good personality to guarantee your dream job – these are only threshold requirements.

2. CLEAR PLAN:

A successful sales person does not sit back and wait for business to come by; a serious job hunter should also adopt the same attitude. Research the recruitment process, and shortlist reasons why you are suited to your dream job, so that you have a clear plan for marketing yourself.

3. NETWORKING:

Your circle of contacts should know that you’re looking for a particular job.

4. DO YOUR RESEARCH:

Detailed research on companies and organisations that offer your dream job is important.

5. ESSENTIAL SKILLS:

Average to strong working knowledge of English both, written and oral, is essential in the globalised workplace. Keyboard typing, MS Office and emailing are basic skills for all jobs with prominent employers. Cultivate a range of IT skills to enhance your flexibility for a wider variety of dream jobs.

6. ADAPTING TO CHANGE:

Learning how to learn can be very useful in this era of rapid change. People who are curious and desire to keep up-todate will be in great demand. An employee who is able to apply new knowledge and technology efficiently to typical job duties assists the employer in meeting competitive challenges.

7. TEAM SPIRIT:

Demonstration of teamwork skills is as important for recruitment as it is for sports.

8. SHOW ENTHUSIASM:

An enthusiastic worker has a positive influence on colleagues , the manager and clients, so employers are always on the lookout for this trait.

9. RIGHT ATTIRE:

Dress neatly and appropriately for the job interview.Every job demands formal attire that fits well.

10. BE PATIENT:

And remember, anything in this world that is worth having will require some amount of effort, patience, persistence and planning.
