Scoring job as a fresher can be very difficult as it is a common fact that most of the employers prefer to employ experienced employees in order to get their job done well and to avoid extra investments to be put for their training. But no matter how difficult it is to find job as a fresher, you can still get a job of your dreams with little extra efforts and smartness put in.
As a fresher, it is undesired from you to follow the conventional process of job search where you enter a website, choose a couple of job offers and send your CV to them and then just relax waiting for the employers to contact you. No. This is not the way of searching for a job as a fresher with no work experience.
You should know the ways of how to put forward your best and showcase finest of your skills to convince employers that you can actually do the job. You are required to study and research details of the companies you are applying for and present your skills such that the employer may recognize how your skills can be useful for the company and specific role.
The way you present yourself and your skills to your employer is very important and much more essential when you have got no previous experience.
You firstly need to realize a fact that it’s not the hard-working people that companies today are searching for. The candidates who are dynamic and flexible to learn and work are desired. The candidates should know how to sell themselves in the best way and hence if you are smart enough to sell yourself for a specific role then getting a desired job is really easy despite having little or no experience.
Companies generally find it difficult training candidates for skills like problem-solving, communications, leadership and analytical skills etc. It would be easier for them to train candidates for technical skills. Hence if you do not exactly possess the technical knowledge for performing the job you are applying for, you should atleast have the certain associative skills which you present to be most beneficial for the role.
Do not apply for different jobs at a time. Instead focus on a single job position and apply only at two or three companies. Keep yourself informed about the details of these companies as this will help you answer the interview questions better and hence will give you a serious head start before any other job applicant.
It’s a good idea to try different with your CV instead of going for a routine boring standard CV. If got right this can attract your employers. You can come across some great ideas on internet for creating your CV such that it is not only unique but also has everything enough to give the interviewer an idea of various necessary things about you like your skills, education and previous achievements if any. Make sure to send your CV with a few sentences accompanying the e-mail.
What can make a difference is when you make an offer which the employer cannot resist. For example you can promise to
- work for certain results;
- work for free until achieving the results you have discussed;
- be flexible for learning and suggest starting at a lower position that you actually deserve
This will be an illustration of your motivation and ambition while will demonstrate your faith in your own knowledge and abilities. Hence this can be a good way to impress your employer.
