Welcome to wonderful world of job hunting. One of few things you will need to do is complete an application employment. Okay, so you already knew that. But, did you know that the appearance, truthfulness, and presentation of an application can be important deciding factors in hiring?
The application can demonstrate attention to detail and the ability to follow directions. It can reveal a person's willingness to learn and also what level of importance they place in finding a job. It's important to know how to use an application to your advantage.
Three key points to consider when completing an application are:
Okay, so you’ve got these points covered. Now you need to consider what you are really looking for in a job. If you're there because of a classified ad, make sure that you've read the ad and can offer the company what they're seeking. Don’t state on your application that you can work weekends or nights or overtime if, in fact, you can’t. If you get the job based on your availability and then tell your new employer that you can’t work the hours indicated, you’ll be looking for a new job again, very shortly.
Completing the employment application is only the beginning. You need to make YOUR appearance stand out, as well! When you visit a prospective employer, make sure to put your best “self” forward. Dress appropriately, even for those jobs that might seem less important.
