If you are out of work or simply looking for a job change then you will need to make up a resume or fill out a job application. The application and resume tell prospective employers everything about you from your work history to your education. It is important to be truthful when filling out your information but also really focus on and highlight your skills.
Everyone has skills of some kind, whether its job experience or education or even both. For those who do not think they have enough of what it takes, it`s time to dig deep into your history. For example; someone who has a small business painting and then goes and works at a fast food chain, might not think they have what it takes to apply for a manager somewhere.
However, if the person looked at all the skills they used and developed as a painter they can easily add things to their resume or job application that look like this; entrepreneur, excellent time management skills, great customer service abilities, able to manage money and work independently. Those skills are just the things needed to work as a manager somewhere else.
Even working at the fast food chain would bring skills to a job application or resume, things like; responsible, hard worker, punctual and team player are things that could be said about skills gained working there. It is just a matter of digging deep and finding things that you may not have even thought about.
It is also important to find good references. They can be anyone you have worked for or people that know you and know your work history and ethics. It is also essential to notify the person before you use them as a reference. It is common courtesy to let them know and find out if a good reference is something they will give. Maybe you thought you did a good job somewhere but your boss didn`t really think so. Great references from people is a must have feature on a job application or resume.
If you don`t have any good references don`t despair! Maybe there was a teacher in high school or college that you could use. If you still can`t find anyone which can sometimes happen to the best of us, then it could be a good idea to volunteer as someone to gain a great reference. It may take a few weeks to a few months to find a job, in the mean time you could spend a few hours a week helping seniors or helping with charitable events, then when you get a call and have an interview time you can bring a reference with you and it will be a current one as well.
Ensuring that your job application and resume is neat and professional looking is a great way to get noticed. Neat penmanship and organized constructed ideas and thoughts, might be just the thing to show any employer that you are a detail oriented person who is organized and takes pride in their work and projects.
Finding a job can take any amount of time, for some people jobs seem to come quick and easy, for others the job search can be a long painful process. It depends on the field you`re looking in and what kind of job you`re seeking. An excellent job application or resume is allowing you to get a foot in the door and to get noticed, the rest is up to them.
