There are many people who have spent a very long time unemployed yet they can take some simple steps to get the jobs of their dreams. It all begins from the mind, if you think you cannot get what you want; it is very likely that you will not get it.
The first step in getting a job is therefore hope, without the hope that you will be successful in getting what you want, you will end up giving up on all efforts to achieve your goals.
Then write a good and attractive curriculum vitae and a good cover letter. Make sure you get a friend to proof read your work so that you do not send an application and resume full of mistakes.
The next step will be to choose a job search method; you can use the door to door method where you will have to move from one office to another or the predictive method which involves hand picking a few areas where you suspect a presence of jobs.
Make sure you see the human resource manager or the hiring officer by yourself. Very many receptionists are not faithful with peoples applications. Always insist on seeing the hiring officer and present your case to them.
Register with recruitment agencies and out sourcing firms. Though many of them may charge you or even take part of your salary, it is better than not having a job. Recruitment agencies normally get job offers from many employers who you may not be able to meet when using the door to door job search method.
Lastly, tell you friend about your need for a job, many of them may be able to link you to others who may have job offers. There are many people today who continue to get jobs through friends.
