Tips while job searching

  • Start the journey by understanding yourself, your skill sets, attributes, and career path

  • Create a #resume based on your strengths and attributes

  • No two #roles are alike and resumes are not one size fits all; you need more than one tailored resume (position, structure, and keywords). Also, review your resume for typos, grammatical errors and accuracy.

  • Please stay positive and avoid any negativity towards the "hiring process" or companies; although validating, it exacerbate jobseekers frustrations, offers no solutions and the negative comments become your #brand.

  • #network with family, friends, coworkers, events and anywhere you go like there is no tomorrow. #linkedin does work yet it takes time and effort to make connections; engagement is key.

  • Good luck in this journey, stay consistent, persistent, and positive.

How to Select the Right Company & Boss

When finding your next job, don't just look for a higher salary.

Find a boss that you can work well with, #develop you, #lead, and #guide you properly. According to insperity.com, “A great boss is someone who inspires their employees to be their best selves. They should be able to identify their employees' best qualities and bring them out.”

Without a good boss, even if you have a great salary or better #benefits, you won't be #happy or progress in that job.

If you worked under a bad boss, you will truly understand this. A good boss is better than a good company.
