Job search: resume posting
1. Start with an analysis of the labor market.
1.1. Look at job sites for jobs related to your career guidance. Carefully read the requirements, tasks, responsibilities, level of payment.
1.2. Get as much information as possible about the job market in your direction from the articles in the network and on the same job sites can be found in many specialties reviews and analysis on trends in the labor market across regions.
1.3. Perhaps you will see that seeking interesting work you lack any skill or knowledge (often it can be the possession of a specialized program, system, etc.), which can be obtained, having additional training in a relatively short time.
2. Determine your level of claims.
2.1. Formulate a list, in your opinion, suitable posts that could be of interest to you. Observe the common wording in the titles. According to the standard names of the desired position easier you will be able to find employers.
2.2. Please note, the same jobs in different organizations, different payment, do not flatter yourself to find a great under the same conditions. They are all different. The main difference in the level of responsibility in a set of duties, in the presence of friendly members of the social policy of the company (payment of meals, sports clubs, etc.).
2.3. Critical take to his candidacy if you are applying for a position you never took (would you like a higher level in the hierarchy or want to find himself in a new profession). Possible. But there must be a reason: carefully pick up all responsibilities, skills from your current experience that you will use to justify his candidacy.
3. If you have reason to claim several different positions, prepare an appropriate summary for each.
3.1. Even if the vacancies are almost the same, it is more important for the recruiter to first see what is required in the description of his vacancy, and then he will be ready to evaluate your other skills.
3.2. In each resume for the position of interest you need to choose from your professional experience the most reflective experience of exactly the chosen position: functional responsibilities, results of activities, acquired skills.
3.3. About all others leave general references.
4. Post your resume on work sites.
4.1. The resume format you will offer a website where you decide to place information about yourself. I seem to be the most effective sites http://www.superjob.ru/, http://hh.ru/ — is the social network, http://www.job-mo.ru – for job search in the Moscow region.
4.2. There are resources that collect all the announced vacancies that are in the public domain. For example, http://ru.indeed.com/
4.3. You can use the social networking resource. Now it has become a common job search opportunity.
4.4. You can apply directly in your company, even if there are no job openings. Many companies can afford to choose specialists for the future, forming a database, offering flexible ways to "sunset" in the company.
5. You have chosen a vacancy for which you have decided to respond.
5.1. When considering you are interested in the vacancy notice, perhaps your existing resume will need to be adjusted: it is better to use the same terminology in describing his experience, which is used in the job description.
5.2. Go to the website of the company. Check out the news. Please note, if there's a section on career. How many vacancies, and what profile. If vacancies are many, it can be as bad (high turnover) and good (the development company). Spend Analytics.
5.3. See what is published about the company in the media, whether it is blacklisted. Many companies are present in social networks. Ask.
5.4. Please note, if the employer articulated for applicant stringent requirements, pointed out the exclamation points, I used the word "only", "must" means it is. Humble. Don't waste your time or the recruiter or his.
5.5. If strict and prohibiting conditions are not established, you can try to offer your condition, but on condition of not significant differences, not more than one or two, but for all the rest everything must match.
6. Write a cover letter.
6.1. The cover letter must be concise and informative. Write about yourself, not about how good and attractive the company is, and how long you have dreamed of working in it. Nobody is being led to this.
6.2. The purpose of the cover letter: briefly provide information that your nomination meets the stated requirements (indicate your experience in the industry and/or in similar positions), your work experience allows to solve the task (specify particular results of your previous activities (appropriate in many positions in marketing – market share, in sales — % increase in customer base or sales in currency units when it comes to filling top positions – increase the capitalization of the company, etc.).
6.3. If you have never held the position, the job, write the specific experience of their respective job duties that you performed on a regular basis in another position or in other positions at various places of employment (list should be no more than two very important places for the argument).
6.4. If you understand that some criteria do not come, write it in the letter and indicate why you decided to apply for this job, having full compliance with the requirements. Apologize if this condition is indispensable. The recruiter will decide to open your resume or not. All the standards are met.
7.1. The above are standard rules. If you have reason not to follow them, write in the cover letter a mention that you do not quite fit the stated requirements (for many), but haveTHIS (Be sure to specify what exactly), which will allow the employer to be interested in you.
7.2. You may be able to write some unusual text that will immediately attract the employer, but if it does not work out - do not invent it, follow the standard rules.
7.3. Heartfelt letter you can write to the company if the company you really like, but now she has no job openings. Or is it possible with any standard associated with creativity and creative professions. But you must specify a particular benefits that can bring the company within the established deadlines.
7.4. Call or write a letter asking whether your resume has been received and whether it has been reviewed.
8. What exactly should not be done.
8.1. Should not be in the cover letter (or calling on the phone) to ask the employer for a personal meeting, where it will be obvious how good you are, and promise that you will do the job, though, and do not meet the requirements of the vacancy.
