Job search is probably the most important part of finding your dream job. Think of something fun and inspirational that engages your personal interests. It is less likely that this will become your permanent job, so you might want to do something that is outside of your comfort zone, but that is still in the span of your interest. Once you finalized the list of companies that could be your potential employers, apply and send cover letters. Be honest and interesting, as well as list everything that might make the employer want you. Even if you think that you never had a well-paid job, or a paid job at all, mention any volunteering or other activities that you have done in the past. Employers love that, but it also shows your willingness and dedication in achieving your goals.
Another potentially terrifying segment of finding a job could be the interview. The interview is the first meeting with your future employer at which you should prove your abilities, knowledge and skills you mentioned in the application. It is a good idea to bring a resume or CV with you when coming to the interview. It’s some sort of reminder who you are and what skills and experiences you have, but it also shows some dose of professionalism. For more information and examples of CV check this page.
Another important factor of your first interview is dress appropriately. Appropriately means that your clothing should match the features of your job positions. Dress smart and accordingly to your age. Be patient and flexible – it’s your first job, hence think well about what your expectations from this working place are. Finally, be prepared. Knowledge about the employer, the company and the nature of their work is crucial. Being informed about the business environment in the company will easily be noticed by the interviewer who will know how to appreciate it. After the interview, it is always a good idea to send a follow-up email that expresses your appreciation for time the company has given to meet with you. Of course, one email means one, if you don’t immediately receive the answer it is not the end of the world, but don’t send emails every day asking for information, since it may be unnecessary move that could annoy your employer.
This all may seem easy and almost trivial but in real life it tends to be rather challenging and many don’t get employed after applying to only one job. DON’T STOP! Be persistent and continue looking for other jobs. Make sure to ask for advices how to improve your resume and what skills you were lacking, so you can improve. Good luck!
