Mastering the rules of a successful job search
2009 is the year of employment in China. As an authoritative career planning consulting agency, Xiangyang’s career has spared no effort to provide a lot of help for people who are looking for employment and workplaces.
In the just-concluded first phase of the JCP Super Planner’s “job hunting special training camp”, scholars, under the careful guidance of their teachers, have found their best career positioning and job search goals, and also cracked their career plans.The core secret of life success, job search and employment.
Starting today, we will gradually introduce some of the core secrets in the special training, hoping to provide overlap and inspiration for more friends.
Xiangyang career CCDM career planning experts pointed out that job hunting is a game, master the rules of the game, it is easy to win.
Enterprises and job seekers are two different roles. In the initial job search game, each has different ideas and ideas. If we can master these game rules first, clarify the common employment models and traditional job application ideas of job seekers.Relationship, then successful job search will become much easier.
1. Recruitment methods of enterprises Generally, once an employer has a need for recruitment, the first thing that comes to mind is to find the most suitable candidate among its current internal employees. Internal selection of talents is an employment method advocated by many companies today; followed by asking friendsOr whether colleagues have suitable candidates, this is what we often say internal referrals and recommendations. Many companies have established such “Bole Awards” and “Talent Referral Awards” and other reward systems dedicated to talent introduction. Encourage everyone to recruit good people.; Again, it is to ask for a third-party headhunting company. Of course, it is usually only for mid-to-high-end positions. In the end, companies will only publish recruitment information in newspapers or recruitment websites to screen personnel from a large number of delivery resumes.
2. Candidates’ methods of applying for jobs, but the ideas of job seekers are exactly the opposite of the above employment ideas.
According to statistics from Xiangyang’s career, almost 90% of people think of collecting relevant job information on the Internet or in the newspaper when they first need a job.
So why don’t employers use job advertisements as the best way to recruit?
Xiangyang career experts believe that job advertisements are somewhat incomplete and untrue, and many companies are hiring false and advertising is familiar.
In addition, there are often fake elements in job advertisements, virtual positions, exaggerated corporate information, etc., which are easily misleading to job applicants.
At the same time, a very important reason is that employers need to find suitable talents in a mountain of mail, not “select” instead of “exclude”.
According to relevant data, when recruiters look at job resumes, the average length of each stay is 1.
At 4 minutes, it can be seen that the probability of success is quite low.
For example, if Little A wants to find a satisfactory job, he needs to get 2-3 job opportunities and select from them.
In order to get these 2-3 job opportunities, Xiao A needs to get 6-9 companies who have job vacancies to conduct interviews.
In order to get interview opportunities for these 6-9 companies that may be very successful, Xiao A must contact N companies in advance and send resumes to these companies.
So what is N?
100 or 200 or more?
According to the calculation of Xiangyang’s career, Xiao A should send at least 500 resumes before he can solve his job search problem.
3. Three fatal flaws of traditional job search methods Xiangyang found that there are three fatal flaws in the existing traditional job search methods. This is also a common problem committed by many job seekers.
First, there is a certain degree of ambiguity about what work should be done. I think that I can consider all the vacant positions listed by the company, so people who send several job resumes to different positions in the same company can be found everywhere.Only spend on those companies that have clearly marked vacancies, and do not actively find more job opportunities; Third, they are too mean and respectful, showing “begging” to employers, and the relationship between the two parties is asymmetric. In fact, if the recruiter keeps looking forWithout a suitable candidate, he will also be under great pressure.
Xiangyang Yang, the chief career planner of Xiangyang Life, pointed out that it is important to master the rules of the game in job hunting.
If you know and master the employment model of the company in advance, think about it from the perspective of the company when you apply for it, deeply explore your business value to match the needs of the company, seek information from friends and family before applying for a job, or directly contact the company you care about, Not just blindly investing online online, so the chances of successful job hunting will be greatly improved.
Of course, there is a proper condition here, that is, before you pay a lot of job hunting actions, you must first have a clear positioning of your job search goals, because clear career positioning and career planning are the core of successful job search.
