We people as living beings are in a constant search for something new, something better, something challenging. We tend to switch places, change environments, cities, even countries just to find something we totally fit in at. There is something that we absolutely depend on, and that thing is the job. As it is a huge part of our life, we always try to find the best offer, the best conditions, the best salary, the best team to work with, the best schedule and so on. However, it is very difficult, almost impossible, to find all that in only one work place. Therefore some of the previously mentioned conditions make us switch jobs and look for something better.
So, if you are one of those that are looking for a new job or have even found it but you do not have the courage to ask for it, let me give you some crucial tips that will increase the possibility for you to get the job you have always dreamed of.
Firstly, make sure you look only for something you are really passionate about. Make a list of the qualities you would like to find at your new working place. List all the advantages you would have if you are to work exactly at that place. No matter what that job is, just follow your intuition and if you feel like this is something that will make you happy in the future, go for it!
Secondly, inform yourself very good about that place. If it is a big and well known company in question it will be easier for you to find out what are the profiles of people they would like to work and collaborate with. Do they need innovative people? Are they looking for someone who is ambitious and willing to improve his skills by a team work or do they prefer confident individuals who are great leaders and accept nothing but the victory? In one word – find what is that makes you a good deal for that company and make sure you emphasize that you do have it, therefore you will fit perfectly in their policy.
Thirdly, when you present yourself in front of the interviewee make sure you look confident. Show that passion for the job that you are looking for unconditionally. Be calm and act as if they have already decided that you are going to be the one selected. Show no doubts nor let them know that you nervous, in case you really are. Pretend that everything is working out for you and it is only a question of time when are you going to sing the contract. Smile often and show off all the positivity you have inside you. Dress properly for the job and try to speak little but tell a lot with your speech. Do not share a lots of personal information, only if required and try to keep as much as possible for yourself.
Lastly, know that everything is in your mind. If you are dreaming about that job it means you absolutely can have it! Remember that the attitude is everything and when the attitude is right, the facts do not count!
