Job Search: posting resume
1. Start with the analysis of the labor market.
1.1. Look at job sites for vacancies related to your professional orientation. Carefully read the requirements, tasks, functional 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 aspiration.
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 a reason to claim several different positions, prepare appropriate CVs for each.
3.1. Even if the vacancies are almost the same, the recruiter is more important to see first 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 you are interested in, you need, from your professional experience, to select the most reflective experience for the chosen position: functional duties, performance results, skills obtained.
3.3. About all others, leave general references.
4. Place the resume on the 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 advertised vacancies that are publicly available. For example, http://www.indeed.com/
4.3. You can use the resource of social networks. Now it has become a common opportunity to find work.
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 the vacancy that you decided to respond to.
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. Look at what is being published about the company in the media, whether it is on the blacklists. Many companies are present in social networks. Ask questions.
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 rigid and prohibitive conditions are not established, you can try to offer your contract, but on condition of not significant differences, no more than one or two, but for everything else, everything must correspond.
6. Write a cover letter.
6.1. The cover letter should be concise and informative. Write about yourself, not about how good and attractive the company is, and how long you dreamed of working for it. On this, no one is being conducted.
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 the standard rules. If you have reasons not to follow them, write in the covering letter the mention that you do not quite fit the declared requirements (for many), but you haveTHIS (it is necessary to specify what exactly), which will allow the employer to become interested in you.
7.2. Perhaps you can 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 with the question whether your resume was received and whether it was reviewed.
8. What exactly you should not do.
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.
