Leave nothing to chance

July 11, 2018 | Career & job search |

The job search is a matter that demands solid preparation

Surely, many have had the experience: When submitting a form, a request, or any other file, nothing can be amiss – otherwise, you won’t see any administrative progress (like permit A38 in “The Twelve Tasks of Asterix”).

The same applies when searching for a job. But in this case, paperwork is just one of the important factors. Many things and aspects outside of the two-dimensional world of paper play a crucial role. For example, preparation for a job interview is essential, as is mastering your presentation. Because a great profile alone is not enough. You also need to sell yourself. With preparation, you can gain a little distance from the path you’re taking and keep a better eye on all of it.

Another advantage lies in the fact that this allows you to develop more fluid argumentation in the conversation with the recruiters.

This is necessary when it comes to matching the profile and the position. Past experiences, your own expectations, as well as your own professional project must complement each other for the conclusion of a contract to become interesting for both parties.

Career coaching is another option for gaining an edge in the job search. Especially for young school and university graduates. Depending on the provider, you can either pick up a few tricks in a direct conversation or on websites (through various tools such as videos) or organised workshops.
