If you have a dream job, but not many people know about it, and you want to get your foot in the door so you can finally start working in that field of study, then this is the blog post for you. From following industry professionals on Twitter to building a portfolio website before going out looking for an internship in order to get paid while doing more work than an intern at a company, this list has got it all.
“I’m not sure how to get into the business world. How can I start building a website in order to establish myself in an industry? What are companies looking for in a job candidate?”
How To Get That Dream Job Now?
If you have started the job search (however old you are) and you have sent out countless resumes, but no response from the employer of your dreams, then it’s time to realise that certain companies do not contact school graduates when they find someone who looks like them on LinkedIn or whose profile they “like.”
There are companies that only recruit online. There is a company called Jobster that allows you to search for jobs with vacancies any time of the day or night. Think of it as a “Monster.com” for college students. I don’t know if you have had the opportunity to use a site like this because it is common to hear about a company posting jobs on its own website as opposed to using another company’s job search engine.
As much as I would like for companies to post their positions on the websites of large, national job search engines, this is simply not the case. If you want your dream job, you will have to take matters into your own hands and do everything in your power to get an interview with that company, even if that means you will be interviewed by the founder or CEO of that business. But it’s very important for you to know what your company has in store for employees, so you can better decide if it’s the right fit for you.
Common tests for getting placement
There are different types of tests conducted by many companies such as aptitude test and many other tests to see your skills in that field. One of the main tests or we can say that the main part of getting selected is an interview. Before going to an interview always do research on the company you’re interviewing with. Seek out information on the company and its products or services, read through the company’s websites, and find out who’s in charge of hiring in that particular area. You may even want to arrange a meeting with them beforehand so you can ask specific questions about the role. There’s nothing worse than going into an interview without knowing what the job actually entails, it can be disheartening when you’re facing an interviewer who doesn’t have all of the answers for you. Most of the companies conduct interviews in online as well as in offline mode also. You have to do a lot of practice to crack these types of interviews, and if you want to get a position of senior assistance or any other types of best position in a company then you have to be mastered in any of the programming languages either it is data structure or c.
One of the best ways to get placement in a company with your skill is referral,now my next paragraph is totally based on referral.
How to get a referral in a company?
In this paragraph we’ll briefly go over some of the benefits and how referral programs work at companies like Google and Facebook. There are many benefits to getting a referral from current employees of your potential new employer. For starters, it’s easier for them to pass on the culture than it would be from someone outside the company. They’ve already made that leap of faith themselves and have seen firsthand what working there will entail.
Getting referred can also help you get into a specific department or grow this company’s customer base. They may have the best people working in their departments.
If you’re a startup, you may be able to work closely with an executive, who can show you how to use their products. It could also give your new employer confidence in your experience and potential for success – which will help them recruit other great employees. Getting referred also helps you to bypass some tests like maybe a coding round or any other online aptitude test.
Even if there isn’t specific work that’s being referred from another company, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be getting some benefits from being referred. We’ve compiled a list of some of the benefits below.
So how do they work? Usually, you’re given information ahead of time, either through your potential new employer or through your contact at the current company you’re thinking about joining. You will then send emails, phone calls or even speak to people in person to get them on board with sending someone referral emails.
After that point, you have a bunch of choices depending on the program that your potential employer has created.
What your referral gets you:
There are a multitude of benefits to getting referred, but here are a few things that you could get:
- Flexibility- You may be able to work from home as many times as you want. For instance, you could have your normal office hours, but then have the option to come into the office for certain projects during the week. This can help save on commuting expenses and allow you to meet with your potential new employer on their terms.
- Salary increase- You may be able to negotiate a significant raise when you finally decide it’s time for an exit strategy or promotion. There’s no harm in asking either – it could give you leverage during salary negotiations.
