Use your network

So be in contact with your professional network and ask for the opportunity.


Prepare for interviews

Try to make your first impression positive. Prepare answers with cases.


 Follow up

Following up with an employer after an interview or even after submitting your application is something many job seekers are reluctant to do because they think it could be viewed as pestering.

However, if done professionally, following up can demonstrate your enthusiasm and interest. If the organization has requested “no calls” or “no emails,” follow their instructions. Try to know their process time and be patient.

For most employers, jobs take months to fill; what may feel like a very long time to wait for you, may be lightning speed for an organization. Before follow up send “Thank You Letter”.


Negotiating the deal

You will always be in a stronger position to negotiate for a higher level of compensation if you wait until all your competition has been eliminated.

Then you don’t have to worry about low-balling them or selling yourself too short. At the same time, remember that you want to start out on a good foot, with neither you nor the employer feeling dragged over the coals in a protracted or contentious negotiation.

Talk about objective criteria rather than vague wants, and give a solid justification for whatever requests you make. So Don’t be afraid to negotiate for a higher level of compensation give a valid justification for your request.
