Are you terrified of hearing the usual blabber ‘it is a very competitive market’? Guess what? You are not alone. There are lots of famous business personalities and CEOs who started off their careers exactly like you; from scratch, with only a few dollars in their pocket and unsure and scared about their future. However, ultimately, they were able to conquer the ups and downs in their path and managed to reach their goal. They eventually established strong and fruitful careers.

If you want to do the same, then you can definitely make good use of the tips outlined below:

Make connections 

This is undoubtedly one-fail proof way of boosting your career in the long-term; you need to develop and maintain connections. You have to have a vast network of contacts if you wish to survive in the market in the long term. Initially, you are just prompted to make connections for the purpose of landing a job, but bear in mind that having a large pool of professional connections and contacts at your disposal has a lot more to offer than just job openings.

Renowned job sites 

How can you jumpstart your career after graduating from college? You take advantage of what the internet has to offer to you. Remember that for every 100 applications you send it, only a couple are going to give you any response. Therefore, you need to ensure you are sending in applications at the right place and the best way to do it is through reputable and renowned job sites such as Bayt.com, LinkedIn, InternsME, GulfTalent etc.

Career fairs 

Thousands of applications are sent it for a job posting and it is possible that the HR manager never get to yours as they have already found someone they like. You may also be suitable for the job, but you are losing out because there is no interaction. This is what you can accomplish via career fairs. They are the place where you can interact face-to-face with potential employers and demonstrate your personality and uniqueness. Furthermore, it is also a great place to network so you are really killing two birds with one stone.

Tailor your CV/Resume 

It is the easy way out to write a single resume or CV that fits all, but it is also going to hold you back. This is not the time for you to be general. If you cannot make the effort of personalizing your resume, the HR managers are just going to assume you don’t want the job enough. You should make sure your resume works for the job application and you should also make updates to the format and style of resume needed for it. Don’t go for the one-size-fits-all theory because it is going to cost you.
With these tips, you will be able to jump the career bandwagon with a lot of grace, style and confidence.
