Everyone in search of a good job must understand some very essential factors while at it. This article is about some important job hunting tips you cannot afford to be ignorant of.
For about 3 months, a lady (or not lady) has sent the same job application email to our company and 10 other companies similar to ours (hence, our competitors) copied in the same email, and no, not a blind copy… its a real copy 😃
For the first few days (2 to 3 days or so), I forwarded the application to HR and was willing to do a bit of follow-up, but then, it became quite annoying that she kept sending the same email for 3 months!
I decided to compile a list of weird things people do that might be causing more harm than good, at least from my personal experience:
The 5 important job hunting tips.
1. DON’T SPAM
And of course, the first item on my list is don’t Spam…
2. Don’t do this …
I’m not sure what to call this, just see the email and don’t ever do anything like that…
3. Don’t Get Angry
At my former place of employment, we interviewed a guy… after the whole interview process, he was sent an email to encourage him to keep improving on himself and that he won’t get the job at this time.
Chairman replied with
You will not get someone better than me, I was trying to help you.
That’s the summary of what he said. We had a good laugh that day.
The remaining job hunting tips i’m about to mention should never leave your heart…Never!
4. Don’t copy other emails
If you are applying to more than one company at the same time, don’t be lazy, send the emails separately. Don’t copy other companies and especially not competitors.
5. Don’t go for that interview
Yep, don’t go for that interview without verifying the authenticity of the company on isthisarealjob.com.
isthisarealjob.com is one of StayBusy Projects, the aim is to reduce the rate at which job seekers get scammed. We presently have more than 100 fake job interview messages, you can add to this list to join in the fight against scammers.
