OSLO, Norway, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Finding a job in this hard economic times isn't easy and a lot of people are busy looking for better and practical ways to find jobs. The process of looking for employment can be frustrating especially if days and weeks go without any reasonable progress. Persistence and patience are regarded by many career coaches as two important virtues in job hunting. While a lot still agree that the best efforts can at times not be good enough in finding a new job, sometimes waiting and believing a little longer can make the difference.
One of the most important things for anyone looking for a job is to do job searches everyday. Career coaches say that different companies looking to hire post jobs everyday and it is always important for potential employees to know when such opportunities arise as soon as possible. According to analyst reports, over 62% of employees say that they fill job openings within thirty days and a further 35% do this in less than two weeks. Career coaches advise that people looking for employment should keep looking everyday and apply as soon as they see an opening that fits their qualifications.
Building a strong network with other professionals in different fields is also essential. According to career experts, 75% of all jobs are normally filled through referrals. Knowing people or professionals in different fields increases the chances of getting a job exponentially and potential employees should always keep this in mind. Career coaches also urge people looking for employment to find as many recruitment agencies as possible. Although sometimes such agencies might not be able to offer work to everyone, they do offer valuable advice to make job hunting a little easier.
Potential employees are also advised to develop a coherent and detailed account of their strengths, past work related accomplishments, qualifications and experience. According to career coaches a lot of employers infer the capabilities of potential employees from such well detailed documents and as such it is important for potential employees to indicate all their strengths in writing and in good details. A new concept in web-based CVs is also helping a number of professionals get jobs faster. Career experts say that a well written CV optimized with necessary Keywords in terms of the jobs the potential employee might be interested in makes it easy for employers to find them when they do an online search for potential recruits.
Although for most professionals finding permanent employment is always a major priority, when this becomes harder and harder considering freelancing isn't a bad idea. Career experts note that trends in the labor market today indicate that a lot of companies are retaining freelancers who they feel are good in what they do. Being a freelancer can help professionals start working on a temporary basis and based on their performances they can still continue to work with big companies and earn good money. In addition to this, career coaches also say that it is important for potential employees to get involved in specific industry activities that relate to their area of expertise. Attending seminars, workshops and expos can be a good way of meeting new contacts or even potential employees.
Positivity is also an important aspect in job hunting and in fact, a lot of career coaches term it as a necessity. Positivity is considered as an ideal virtue that inspires great persistence and patience in the job searching process. Keeping fit and eating well can help in maintaining high positivity every day. In addition to this, career coaches also note that doing extra courses or getting extra training can be a good way of attracting potential employers. Although in the current labor market sometimes such extra short courses might not be a necessity, they sometimes help to fight off the competitors who are all looking at the few job opportunities available. Finding a job faster can be a possibility and as many career experts note, the most important thing is to always be positive and consistent in the entire process of job searching.
