Maximize your strengths and highlights?

After successfully passing the resume screening, what should I know in the interview process?

There are five steps to starting your career, including:

  • Self-assessment
  • Skills assessment
  • Set career goals and timetables
  • Evaluate career development plans
  • Know your employer’s needs

Only if you know yourself enough to know what you want, therefore getting on the right career path at the beginning of career development, self-evaluation, and self-assessment are especially important.

Then, you can set your career direction and specific schedule according to your situation. At the same time, know yourself and your employer’s needs in order to get success.

After the initial general direction is determined, it is time to search for positions in the desired field and submit them.

It is recommended that you search the Internet, newspapers and trade magazines for recruitment pages, recruitment websites, job boards, LinkedIn job ads, and the latest information about your favorite businesses. Also, network with colleagues, friends, family, and industry experts, and make suggestions for yourself if necessary. In addition, keep an open mind, broaden your options, and be flexible about salary and promotion opportunities to increase your chances of landing your dream job.

Once you’ve found a job, how do you decide if it’s a good fit for you, or if it’s worth applying for?

Start with three things:

  1. First, determine whether the skills and personal abilities required by the position match your own, such as whether your skills and interests are consistent with your own, and whether the position can make full use of your advantages and abilities.
  2. Second, check the company profile and its corporate culture to find out whether corporate values are consistent with your values, and whether you have a leadership plan and a clear career development plan for employees.
  3. Finally, Check whether the enterprise has a training plan for employees and whether it will spend energy on improving the skills required by employees and give them opportunities to grow.

The above points are all issues that need to be paid attention to for graduates entering the workplace.

When you’re ready to submit a job offer, remember that your resume is your personal marketing tool.

You can make two versions of your resume, one generic and one customized.

The customized version is built based on the general version, according to different job requirements, to make additions, deletions, adjustments, to be more targeted. The format of the resume should be clean and clear, with precise words and effective personal information, including educational background, achievements, awards, work experience, extracurricular activities, and hobbies. When describing your work experience, be realistic, specific, and highlight your contributions. Your most recent work experience should be as detailed as possible.

In addition to your resume, you should also include valuable certificates and supporting documents.

If you pass the resume screening and come to the interview, then you need to know more. Round after round of interviews is tantamount to a series of tough battles, and one cannot take them lightly at any moment.
