Rules for Job Hunting!

There is a simple rule of the game that is called job hunting. That is you don’t have to play by any standard of rules.

Go ahead, apply to jobs even if you match only 60%-70% of the requirements of the job descriptions.

Don’t wait for recruiters/hiring managers to check your resume and update you. Instead be proactive and reach out to them and tell them why you are the candidate they are looking for.

Don’t simply accept the first salary quoted to you by the hiring manager, instead learn to negotiate your worth.

Don’t get disheartened by all the NOs that come your way during job hunting because in the end you just need one YES, JUST ONE YES! #AWU #disability #jobs

According to Salary.com's survey, only 37% of people always negotiate their salaries. Job seekers often devalue themselves because they think:

Negotiating a salary might cost me the job offer.

It will create an adversarial relationship with my employer.

The employer has the final say.

Here are a few tips that will help you negotiate your salary:

Never let any company give you an offer based on your last salary. Compensation should always be based on your skills.

Use websites like Levels.fyi, Glassdoor and Payscale to see what employees working in your position are getting paid. Research the salary trends in your industry.

Make the recruiter understand why you deserve what you are asking for.

If you get asked about your expected salary in an interview and you haven’t made up your mind, simply say, "I’ve not thought about it yet. Can we have a separate meeting to talk about salary and the final offer?"

Negotiate your salary and ask for what you believe you deserve because if you feel undervalued or underpaid, your performance will definitely be affected. #AWU #disability #jobs #salary

I'm telling you the truth...

It can take a person almost a lifetime to recognize this principle of truth.

Please, don't let this happen to YOU.

Once you say..."I'm not living an abundance life." People will race to the bank, full-speed ahead to collect your losses and add it to their own.

You can live an abundance of life, you just have to try.

I Believe You Can...!

"Job Search Tip"

The concept of a dream companies is one that many fall into. These are companies that are considered to be the most prestigious, desirable, or well-known in the industry. However, focusing solely on these companies can limit your job search. So be open to all opportunities because you never know what's next.

Diversify your job search:

Sure, it's okay to have a dream companies on your list, however, it's very important to diversify your job search and apply to a variety of companies.

Don't overlook smaller companies:

Smaller companies can offer unique opportunities and different work cultures. They may also be more willing to take a chance on someone who doesn't have traditional qualifications or experience.

Don't overlook startups:

Startups are a great place to find unique and innovative job opportunities. They can offer the opportunity to be part of something exciting.

Keep your mind open: The most important thing is to be open to job opportunities that may not be your first choice. Sometimes the best job opportunities come from unexpected places. #AWU #disability #jobsearchtips

Job Search Tip"

Identify your target roles and companies you want to apply to.

The process of deciding on your target job roles may involve the following steps:

Search on the internet- Read what is said by experts, medium posts published by professionals, or social media posts.

Read job descriptions – Now the second step is to see what the company expects from your target role. Check the roles and responsibilities, qualifications required, and average salary carefully.

Talk to people– There is no doubt that many people have already worked in your target role. Talk to them and ask specific questions about your role.

A few questions could be:

What are the tasks you perform in your job role on a daily basis?

What is one thing you absolutely love about your job?

What is one thing you absolutely hate about your job?

What are the future possibilities and growth opportunities that this role could possibly open up?

Now, assess whether your expectations for a role are aligned with reality. #AWU #disability #jobsearchtips
