Give Employers Every Reason to Choose You
There are several reasons you may be failing in your search for electronic assembly jobs. Not promoting yourself to the best of your ability could cost you a great job opportunity. It’s all about self-marketing. Here’s how.
Commit to a Strategy
It’s easy to get caught up with day-to-day tasks and not focus on the future. But the reality is, your career will be much more fulfilling if you take a proactive approach.
You must apply discipline and commitment for your career to take off, by sticking to a career-building strategy.
Target Your Resume
Optimizing your resume is essential in today’s competitive job market. Employers expect that you will have a well-written resume with the right keywords and phrases that match the requirements of the job.
Target your resume to show knowledge and skillsets in relation to the job description, with specifically required keywords. Your cover letter should also be tailored for the company by highlighting how you fit with their values and mission statement.
Detox Your Social Media
A social media presence can be a resume itself, and many employers use social media profiles to screen potential job applicants.
Employers look for anything that could be considered harmful to the company, and to judge if candidates are the right fit for the position and company culture.
Don’t lock all your accounts – this is considered a red flag. Instead, be active and make sure it’s fit for employers’ eyes. In fact, use it as a platform to sell yourself, with positive industry insights, updates, and connections.
Improve Your Interview Skills
Interview skills are an important part of the job search process and allow you to demonstrate your skills, personality, and knowledge. You must prepare to increase your confidence and show employers why they should hire you. Think about:
- A smart dress code
- Arriving in a timely manner
- Who is interviewing you
- What questions they might ask
- What questions you should ask
Think about your main selling points, but add a dash of humanity and know your weaknesses, too. (If we get you an interview with a client of ours, we’ll help you prepare.)
You must be persistent in your search for a new job. Don’t give up. You must show your passion for the industry and keep your motivation and energy high, giving employers every reason to choose you.
It is not easy to find a job. You may face a lot of obstacles and rejections before you finally land the job for you. If you are truly passionate about what you want to do, never give up – success is just around the corner.
Research the Employer
Every company is different, and it is important to know what kind of company you’re getting into before you decide to apply for a new role and accept a job offer.
When researching the company, look for two things:
- The mission statement – what the company hopes to achieve in the future (what they want)
- Their values – how the company plans to achieve it (how they want to do it)
This research will help you decide whether the company’s culture aligns with your own and whether you would be happy in this role.
