JOB SEARCH AND CAREER-BUILDING IN THE NEW INTERNET AGE OF SEO AND SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Job search today is no longer the province of paper resumes and physical career offices on campus. The application process is more than that. Sometimes applying for one job can take between 30-45 minutes depending on what is required by the company. When applying for jobs nowadays, expect there to be some tough competition. To set yourself apart, you might want to consider submitting a high-quality resume. For help writing one, you could always visit Cultivated Culture’s website (https://cultivatedculture.com/resume-templates/) to get some ideas about how you want your resume to look. With a good resume, you stand a chance at getting the job. However, employers are much more strict nowadays with who they employ. This can cause some people to even consider Jobs in Bournemouth, Birmingham, London or even relocating to different countries in search of their dream career. For anyone lucky enough to reach the interview stage after submitting an application, congratulations. Don’t get nervous when it comes up in the interview about your potential employer has done a background check on you. They are not stalking you. Instead, they are trying to gain further knowledge of you as an individual, as well as making sure you are legally suitable to work for their company. So when you find out that companies are doing a form of people search during this stage of the process, just know it is just for their interest and the potentially the safety of others. Soon, you’ll be well on your way to getting that job you’ve been after for years. This is your chance to show the interviewer what you can bring to the company. Preparation is key. But if you are unsure as to where to start, my best best it to look at sites like https://www.berkeassessment.com/solutions to give you a push in the right direction.
