Tip 1: Where to go to work
Determine for yourself what is more important to you - work by vocation or high wages. Keep in mind that the activities for which you have a natural inclination may not be in demand on the labor market and may be paid worse than many other types of work. If moral satisfaction from doing your favorite business is not so important for you, feel free to look for a job in demand with a higher level of pay. It is best to choose a reasonable compromise, if possible, aligning your core interests with your future profession.
Contact the Employment Center at your place of residence. There you can register for unemployment and at the same time find a job that meets your criteria. There is no guarantee that you will immediately be offered a highly paid position, but as a starting point for gaining work experience and seniority this may at first be quite enough. In addition, receiving the status of unemployed, you will have the opportunity to participate in public works, while receiving salary.
View publications in which job vacancies are published, including electronic bulletin boards and job-related web sites. Look for those ads where the requirements for candidates are not very high. Often, employers are looking for workers who do not have a diploma or experience, but are able to study a specialty right at the workplace. In this case, the selection criteria are responsibility, diligence and readiness to master a new profession.
Ask your relatives, friends and acquaintances if they do not need employees in those enterprises where they work themselves. Positive recommendations from those who know you personally often provide an opportunity to start a career from scratch in one of the family businesses or in a small business. It is often more important for an employer to have a reliable person in a company than to take an experienced specialist from outside.
Choosing a place of work, be focused on the long term. It is good to have a stable job with a package of social benefits today, and not in the distant future. But it is much more important that your position has the resources for professional growth and promotion. In this case, as you gain experience, you will be able to get a higher position and, accordingly, a salary increase.
