4 Common Job Search Mistakes To Avoid
1) You pass judgment on a short or poorly written job description
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but often a 30 to 50 word job description is not. Weird right? It’s true, many candidates are reluctant to perform further research let alone apply for a position unless the job description reads like their dream job or they possess ALL of the job qualifications listed. Our advice: if you are at least 80% in the job and meet at least 80% of its requirements, its worthy to apply. After all, the purpose of a job interview is to learn more, whether it’s the employer about you or you about the position. In other words, the interview experience is a good experience even if it doesn’t go exactly as you want.
2) You have a bad attitude
Poor attitudes and overall negativity can be portrayed in more ways than just spoken word. The pitch and tone of your voice, body language and excitement level are all indicators that hiring managers can pick up on sometimes even over the phone. This will sound corny, but we know how easy it is to become frustrated in your job search. Think of aspects of your life that make you happy to get in a positive frame of mind before any interaction with a potential employer. Treat each position as a new opportunity to make it happen!
3) You use your current work email address on your resume
Yes, we get it – it’s easier to check your work email address since you are probably connected all day. Last we checked, it takes 30 seconds to log-in to your personal email and even quicker to scan the unread messages. Why is this so important? You are essentially telling your potential new employer that you will not hesitate to use their equipment for your personal use. This is not the message you want to send.
4) You believe the job is all about you
A job opening is solely about the prospective employer running a successful business to make money. There is no doubt that you want the job because it pays more, you have bills to pay, have been unemployed for an extended period of time or all of the above. Explaining these circumstances will not help your cause. Rather than focusing on you, craft a different message detailing how you can benefit the employer by saving them money, streamlining processes, creating additional sources of revenue and bringing overall value to the company.
Effectively Answer Common Job Interview Questions
Can you tell me a little about yourself?
Do: Prepare for this popular, often first-asked question. Develop an incisive summary of your career by providing high-level details about your relevant skills, work experience, accomplishments and goals. Think of the 30-second elevator pitches that entrepreneurs make on ABC’s Shark Tank. Go!
Don’t: Offer your life story, discuss how you spend your leisure time nor describe experiences in your professional career that are not relevant to the position for which you are applying.
Why do you want to join our company?
Do: Research so you walk into the interview with a mid-depth knowledge of the company. Read the companies websites, product catalogs, new stories and marketing brochures. Have a solid grasp of the company’s mission, history, reputation and corporate culture. The more information you have, the more detailed examples you can provide as to why you are the perfect fit.
Don’t: Answer questions in the context of your financial needs. You will not be able to recover if you refer to the company’s good pay or strong benefits.
Why are you looking to leave your current employer?
Do: This question is asked to figure out if you really want the position or just trying to bail out of a bad situation at your current job. Reiterate what aspects of the job are attractive to you and how you can make more of a difference with the new company. Make it clear your current position is a good opportunity, but you are seeking a great opportunity with the prospective employer.
Don’t: Speak ill of you current employer. No matter how unhappy you are with your current job, never act bitter or resentful in an interview. These types of employees are perceived as headaches. Nobody wants to hire a headache.
