Looking for Work, are you prepared?

One thing I keep being told when heading for job interviews or things I thought of myself that most people don’t consider because they think its “common sense” which people get misplacement in their life when they lose a job for any reason. Here is a list of things you should be aware if you been out of work for sometime.

  • 9am to 5pm is the basis of time you should be looking for work.. its when businesses are open and if your not awake or tired at those times you can lose chances for a job. Even on weekends (but time is reduced keep and eye on that)… Getting a call when your half asleep from a employer only says your not ready and shouldn’t be employed unless they are looking for graveyard shifts.
  • Don’t over/under dress for jobs… don’t grab your tuxedo or work dress for interviews for jobs where they looking for anyone… a plain shirt (avoid white as it stain magnet) or grab a 
  • If you don’t have a car, always plan ahead by a few hours… because you can’t depend on the public transportation to be on time (this happened to me where the bus broke down and I was over 2 hours late)
  • Keep your Resume updated which is important, do constant odd jobs for one person ask them to be added as a reference.
  • Do not add your reference contact info on your resume… only when you get into interview where you get a page with all reference… more references of friends and co-workers that can give you a positive input GREATLY improve your chances.
  • Be friendly and Professional… if you feel like your employer seems to be highly disrespectful to you without reason just politely tell them you are no longer interested in the job and thank them for their time.
  • If you want to keep your beard keep is clean and very well groomed… this can be a positive because having a nice and well maintained facial hair.
  • If you applying for a job and you don’t meet the minimum requirements… research it online or at the library this will get you in their second or third choice for employment.
  • be yourself in a professional matter… sometimes if employers are more relaxed… get relaxed as well.
  • make sure your in a habit to over clean yourself… I know some people have a hard time with body odor (like I do) always get doctor help or look online for very powerful shampoo and soap 
  • keep doing it, giving up means you never get a job… always trying to keep at it means you always will have a chance being employed be optimistic.
