    Job Hunting Strategies

    MakeYourMove Recruitment portal makes it easy for you, as a job seeker, to browse through numerous vacancies for a variety of job posts across our many organization partners. However, although you have a wide range access through our credible and reliable platform, you have only crossed the first step.

    The job-hunting process is not just about where to look, but how to look. Here are some tips that you can use to make sure you are applying for the right vacancies, and getting recognized by the right organizations through MYM.

    1. Know what you want

    Be sure to have a clear picture of what vacancy you are looking for, this will make it easy to filter out the right ones, and will ensure that you are not applying for a job that you may not likely accept ultimately. This way you are saving your own time, as well as an organization’s. This picture need not be static, and you may generalize or change what you want along the way, but it is important to start off with a specific role in mind.

    2. Tailor your resume and cover letter

    Your application should always be specific to the job you are applying for. This includes your resume and cover letter. So, have a generalized copy of each one, and tweak them slightly based on the responsibilities and qualifications that are integral to the job you want. This will be more likely to catch a recruiter’s eye.

    3. Keep track of the jobs you apply for

    When you are job hunting, you may send out dozens of applications. Make sure that you have a list of each of these, what the job role is, as well as when you applied to it. This way, you will not accidentally apply for the same job twice, and you can keep track of when to follow up if you do not receive a reply when expected.

    4. Learn job keywords

    Most search engines operate on key words to help you find jobs, so it is important to learn which keywords are applicable to the kind of job you are looking for. Know the alternative job titles, so that you can access a wider range of postings.
