Not many people realize it, but the job-hunting is one of the most tough and very difficult task and yet easy if you can handle it.
If this is done with patience and knowledge than it will be not much of a trouble else if this is done in a hurry than really this is a headache , trouble etc etc. Let me illustrate what I mean.
Most job-hunters think there are basically only three ways to go about their job-searching: 1.Resumes( i mean just keep on forwarding resumes to many people)
2Ads(ads on newspapers, internet etc)
3.Consultancies or through Institutes.
Actually, there are many:-
1. Using the Internet to search for job.This is the basic way ,though you need to keep on searching online its better.ANd keep on sending (posting) your resumes as much as possible.
2.Mailing out resumes to employers at random.This means to your seniors(working) or professionals whom you know directly or indirectly.
3.Reading local newspaper ads.This is a must , keep on reading newspapers daily.Companies post job even in newspapers.
4.Visiting private companies (small one’s) just looking for openings or searching companies and just enquiring about the openings or the company .(believe me its a good practice i have done that personally).
5.Just visiting the job fairs. Yeah dont leave any job fair or any recruitment drive that is held. Just attend it, joining the company on selection is secondary. Because you will get exp. and exposure. I have made this mistake of not attending few job fairs or companies due to package or heavy rush(job aspirants).Dont leave any damn opportunity.
6.Writing job oriented exams . There are many exams which you can look for.AMCAT- This helps in getting to the companies.
GATE- Yes this exam is not only for MTech purpose , You can apply for many PSU’s.
7.Govt or Civil exams.Here there is a lot of scope for many people who are not from IT field.You can write many Civil exams like:-
b.Transport service exams.(APSRTC, KSRTC)
d.Public service exams.
e.Even many big big govt companies conduct exams like ONGC, NPTCL etc .Here the packages are skyrocketing and yes you will have everyrhing.
8. Asking a former professor for job-leads. Here it means that you need to discuss with your seniors or any professionals who is expert in that particular filed ,why because you need to have a proper guidance also.They will be a lot of help to you.
9. Knocking on the door of any company or office that interests you, whether they are known to have a vacancy or not. As i mentioned earlier also, just keep your interest intact and just keep on visiting companies do that you get to know the professional world.
10. Doing what is called “the creative approach to job-hunting or career-change”: doing homework on yourself, to figure out what your favorite and best skills are; then doing face-to-face interviewing for information only, at organizations in your field; followed up by using your personal contacts to get in to see, at each organization that has interested you, the person-who-actually-has-the-power-to-hire-you .This is actually the best way i suppose.
