Looking For a Job? Here’s What to Avoid at All Costs!

Finding an exciting and rewarding job is not easy! Here are some faux pas that can ruin everything… right from square one.

Not coming to terms with a job experience
Dismissal, psychological harassment, seeking new challenges… The end of a job should never be taken lightly. It’s necessary to take the time to take on the end of a professional adventure emotionally before embarking on the search for a new position. By being really mentally available, a candidate will have a much better chance of finding a job that suits him.

Going off in all directions
Before sending applications, a job seeker would do well to draw up a list of interests, tasks, working conditions, social benefits and other aspects that they want to find in their next position. This simple point gives a clear direction to the job search… and saves a lot of time!

Sending an inadequate application
A resume and cover letter must be adapted to each new application. Depending on the desired job, it is worthwhile making slight changes to the work experience, training and interests mentioned. These few additional minutes can really make a difference!

Underestimating the importance of the job interview
As a result of meeting potential employers with no result, some job seekers lose their motivation… which is very noticeable during the job interview. Before the interview, it is important to take the time to learn about the company in question, reread the list of tasks and think about the skills that could allow for a good fit with a job.

Focusing on just one track
Facing the job of his or her dreams, an applicant can tend to invest all their time and energy into getting it. This is where the saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” makes a lot of sense! While making every effort to get this job, the job seeker needs to stay active so that no opportunity is lost.

Not being easy to reach
While it is important to shine in an interview, it is even better not to disappear afterwards. After the meeting, it is of utmost importance to be on the lookout by regularly checking your voice messages and emails. By responding promptly to a request from their potential boss, the candidate can reaffirm their interest in the position in question. And maybe get it!
