What are some tips for getting a good job?

People often mistakenly assume that getting a job is as easy as getting a degree. Incorrect! I'll repeat something one of my teachers used to say: "They won't hand you papers on a platter." She couldn't have been more right. You think that just because you did Mtech from IIT they will offer you really good jobs, that's a mistake. Obtaining an Mtech is difficult. You may think you've had your butt kicked enough already. But wait until you enter the job market. First, you won't use 90% of the things you learned in your degree on your job. No! It's not going to happen. Unless you are a

People often mistakenly assume that getting a job is as easy as getting a degree. Incorrect! I'll repeat something one of my teachers used to say: "They won't hand you papers on a platter." She couldn't have been more right. You think that just because you did Mtech from IIT they will offer you really good jobs, that's a mistake. Obtaining an Mtech is difficult. You may think you've had your butt kicked enough already. But wait until you enter the job market. First, you won't use 90% of the things you learned in your degree on your job. No! It's not going to happen. Unless you are a software engineer and you get a job in software engineering or you are a telecommunications engineer and you have got a job in one of the telecommunications companies. And so on. So here are my points for "

  1. List all your projects on your resume. If you haven't done any projects, too bad. I mean very bad luck, as companies will not care how many fat books you had to study. They will want to see how you can use your skills in practical scenarios.
  2. List the accomplishments on your resume. Nobody cares what score you get (as long as it's not lower than average). Your achievements will solve a problem at your university, providing a solution to an experiment. If you don't have such achievements, then too bad.
  3. Write down all your extracurricular activities - Recruiters want to see that you are a whole person.
  4. Write pain letters. There are different cover letters. Find out what kinds of problems the company is facing and why they are hiring for that position. And then frame your letter neatly, outlining what you can do if hired.
  5. Be prepared to face all kinds of questions in your interviews. Companies want people who can think quickly or can solve problems calmly in any situation.

Good luck! It will not be easy. But it won't be impossible either.

Yes. Let's put this up for discussion.

First of all, being unemployed does not necessarily mean being unemployed. Being unemployed means having no source of income. If you completed your graduation and you are unemployed and trying to find a job, this article is for you, but if you are a student or preparing for some competitive exam, then it is specially designed for what your future could be. If you are a successful professional, it could help you guide others and if you are a recruiter, it could help me land a position at your company.

Yes. Let's put this up for discussion.

First of all, being unemployed does not necessarily mean being unemployed. Being unemployed means having no source of income. If you completed your graduation and you are unemployed and trying to find a job, this article is for you, but if you are a student or preparing for some competitive exam, then it is specially designed for what your future could be. If you are a successful professional, it could help you guide others and if you are a recruiter, it could help me land a position at your company.

Entrepreneurship is still not that common in a country like India. People are not yet broad-minded enough to allow their children to pursue entrepreneurship. I don't blame the parents, but the way they raised us. Indians like to be on a safer side, they want to get a secure job rather than step out of the box and build something on their own. However, it is good to see that the scene is changing, but it will take time to produce a healthy society of enthusiastic entrepreneurs. Anyway, we are not here to discuss entrepreneurship, I will write an article about it later.

So it is clear that most educated people in India are looking for work. But in a country of 130 million, it is not easy to land in one. Whether you are an engineer, chartered accountant or any other field, it is not a straight and narrow path to success, especially if you are not talented or lucky (and I write lucky to see the reservation system in India) enough as to have graduated from an IIT or an IIM.

Being out of a job could teach you lessons that any school or university will never be able to. After all, life is the best school and circumstances are the best teachers.

Here are 5 things I have learned while unemployed.

# It is not you fighting against others, it is you fighting against yourself.

The biggest misconception people have is that they have to fight the other contenders, which sounds pretty obvious and practical. But deep down, it is not what it seems. You may have to compete with others, but first of all you have to fight against yourself because at the end of the day it all depends on the efforts you make and the opportunities you haven't taken advantage of. There are millions of stars in the universe, but we can easily distinguish the pole star from the rest. It is not because others do not shine, it is because it shines more. Similarly, your brilliance doesn't have to depend on others to be the brightest. All up to you.

"Success all depends on the second letter."

So while looking for work, try to shine with the brilliance of your skills. Acquire the skills you need, get better, take the time to learn, and take the risks you would rather not, and you will automatically outshine every other star in the universe.

# Understand the importance of networking

One of the most important tools for getting the job is networking. People generally forget how important networking is. A simple hello could lead to a million things. Opportunities are waiting for you to knock on their door, it's just a matter of finding one. The more shots you take at the target, the more chances you have to hit the target. Increase your opportunities by contacting who's who in your industry, because-

"It's not about who you know, it's about who knows you."

So now, if you have enriched yourself with the required skill set but still can't find the job you need, you may be missing out on contacts. Be frank, talk to people, network, invite them to coffee, discuss ideas, share interests, and one of them will definitely show interest in you. Because at the end of it all, "your network creates your net worth."

# Time is your greatest asset, use it wisely.

Here's some bad news and good news for you.

“The bad news is that time flies. The good news is that you are the pilot. "

Time is what we want the most but we use the worst. Especially this time, while looking for a job, you can't afford to waste it. Everyone has the same 24 hours a day, the self-made billionaire who has made his way to wealth, and the little boy struggling to make a living. It is just a question of how well it is used. So, spend your time on productive things instead of wasting it on unproductive things.

Television is your biggest enemy, stop temporary pleasures and use that smartphone wisely. In today's technology-driven world, it's very easy to find ways to waste your time. It is important to use technology wisely. So spend your time reading, learning, and networking and time will pay you back.

# Don't listen to what people say

What people say is none of your business. Everyone will always have a point of view. Especially in a country like India, everyone loves to comment and express their point of view. Which is not bad at all. Listen to them, but do what you have to do, not what they want you to do. Because what people say is according to their level of understanding and their perspective. No one can occupy your position. We all have a different story and everyone should understand it.

"The less you listen to what people say about you, the more successful you are."

So, no matter what people think or say about you, just know who you are and focus on your goals and you will soon get a job.

# Do not compare yourself with others

I know you must have had some classmates or colleagues who have a successful career and are in a position that you deserve to be in. Face it, life is not fair. They all work according to their "time zones". Your younger colleagues, friends, might once "seem" ahead of time. Do not envy them. It is their time zone, you are in yours. People can make things work only according to their rhythm. "Work in your time zone."

"Someone will always be better, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be prettier, but it will never be you."

Don't envy anyone, just keep working at your own pace, at your level and in your time zone.

So keep these 5 points in mind. Understand the importance of networking, use time wisely, don't listen to what people are saying, don't envy anyone, keep moving at your own pace in your time zone and just remember…. it is not you against others; has been, is and always will be you against yourself.

“Hold on, be strong, and be true to yourself. All things will help you good. "

Without a doubt, data science is becoming one of the most in-demand skills in the rapidly changing industry. Across major industries, recruiters are looking for data-driven professionals who can analyze it to generate useful information for the company. The growing demand appears to be endless, and the world is projected to face a shortage of at least half a million data scientists by 2025. Therefore, learning data science could be your chance for a promising career.

Without a doubt, data science is becoming one of the most in-demand skills in the rapidly changing industry. Across major industries, recruiters are looking for data-driven professionals who can analyze it to generate useful information for the company. The growing demand appears to be endless, and the world is projected to face a shortage of at least half a million data scientists by 2025. Therefore, learning data science could be your chance for a promising career.

Now there are many ways to learn data science - you can enroll in a university, opt for a Bootcamp program, or even try your hands on short-term online courses offered by independent organizations and platforms. However, before we move on to the part where you start comparing courses and answer a call, let us understand what all the skills you would need to learn are.

Understand what skills to acquire

Becoming a data science professional is easier said than done. There are many skills that you would need to add to your bag to qualify as a data scientist. But for starters, there are three absolutely necessary technical skills that you must learn:

  1. A programming language like Python or R to use the data sets (I recommend Python). If this is your first experience with a programming language, I recommend starting with Python.
  2. For data handling and manipulation, SQL
  3. A little machine learning and the fundamentals of statistics. To be good and understand how the data ecosystem works, I would recommend brushing up on the fundamentals of statistics and learning a little machine learning (not necessary if you are enrolling in a college course or full Bootcamp).

Choosing the right course

Looking for the right course will confuse you even more, especially if you are a beginner and have no idea what is right for you. As I mentioned earlier, you may find hundreds of platforms offering Bootcamp and short-term courses. My advice: enroll in a course offered by a university. Learning in a classroom setting and working with peers is sure to generate the inner data buff in you.

However, if you are not comfortable with full-time programs, you can surely opt for part-time online courses offered by universities, which offer similar professional results.

Since I have seen several students become successful data professionals with these specialized programs, I highly recommend LEARNXT University accredited degree and diploma programs in the data science domain. Currently, the platform offers three courses:

  1. MBA in data science
  2. Master of Applied Data Science
  3. PG Diploma in Applied Data Science

One of the biggest benefits of choosing LEARNXT is its hybrid learning offering - you can choose the weekend part-time learning program if you are not comfortable with the full-time program. Apart from that, here are some other advantages:

  • You are taught by the best professors from IIT and world renowned universities
  • More than 50% of the time is spent on projects and assignments.
  • Lifetime access to learning materials on the artificial intelligence-based StudyNxt platform
  • Access to CareerNxt Career Portal services

Develop essential (non-technical) skills

Gaining technical skills is crucial to becoming a data scientist in the future. However, you must give equal importance to honing your critical thinking, problem-solving skills as attention to detail. When playing with data sets where even a single decimal place could have a big impact, you need to be careful, quick, and rational in your approach. I'm not asking you to flip a switch as these skills take time, but start working on them while adding technical skills to your bag.

Practice well and participate

Last but not least, PRACTICE. Practice as much as you can because data science is not a skill you can take from books; it can only be acquired and improved over time when you practice. The course you choose is sure to expose you to real-world data challenges, but from time to time, you can go to platforms like Kaggle and check out their forums to work on the latest issues and hone your data handling skills.

All the best for your learning journey and your future as a data scientist!

This is a story about Jack.

Jack wants a job. Any job. He needs money because his parents' allowance no longer pays the bills.

But Jack had never had to apply for a job before. So he did what most people do. Jack Googled "How do I get a job?"

After getting lost in reading several dozen tutorials and subreddits, Jack became concerned. None of the councils told him what he could do today.

Jack was sad, confused, and still broke.

Jack has no experience. You don't have a resume, much less a "good" resume. He still needs a job and his reading online made him feel like an unreserved loser.

This is a story about Jack.

Jack wants a job. Any job. He needs money because his parents' allowance no longer pays the bills.

But Jack had never had to apply for a job before. So he did what most people do. Jack Googled "How do I get a job?"

After getting lost in reading several dozen tutorials and subreddits, Jack became concerned. None of the councils told him what he could do today.

Jack was sad, confused, and still broke.

Jack has no experience. You don't have a resume, much less a "good" resume. He still needs a job and his reading online made him feel like an unreserved loser.

But Jack wasn't going to give up so easily. He decided that he would go visit some local businesses in person to see what he could do.

The first place you visit is the grocery store, where you are greeted by a manager. Jack asks about the now-hiring sign he saw outside: "How could I work for you?"

The manager tells you that he is looking for people who work hard and show up on time. He asks Jack if he can do that.

Jack tells him that he has never had a job before. "I am willing to do my best."

The manager tells you that he distrusts anyone who has never worked before. "A lot of people have applied for this job, son," he says to Jack, "Why should I hire you?"

Jack doesn't know, so he tells the manager the only answer he can think of: the truth.

"Honestly, sir, I don't know why you should choose me over anyone else, but I'm willing to do whatever it takes to learn."

The manager tells Jack to come back on Saturday for a test run. "You have a chance to prove yourself, don't be late."

On Saturday, Jack showed up early.

She got a new haircut the night before and chose clean clothes. His shirt is tucked in and he's wearing a belt.

The manager greets him again. He tells her that he would like Jack to sweep the floor to start and points to the back room where the brooms are kept.

Jack doesn't wait for instructions. Jack runs to the back room. He grabs the mop and sets off through the store.

When meeting guests, Jack politely waits for them to move.

A guest stopped Jack. "Sir, do you know in which aisle I can find the grape jelly?"

Jack doesn't know, so he tells her the only answer that comes to mind: the truth. “No, ma'am, I don't. But give me a second to find out and I'll be right back. "

Jack runs to the front of the store, reading the signs as he moves. There, in aisle two, he sees it: "Condiments." And he walks down the aisle, grabs a Smucker grape jar, and rushes back to the customer.

"Ma'am, I went ahead and grabbed a jar from you, but the grape jelly is in aisle two so you'll know next time."

The customer smiles and accepts the jelly. She tells Jack how nice it is to meet such a polite young man, and that he would have to speak well to his boss.

When the manager heard the customer's story, he found Jack and told him that he would like to give it a try.

Jack's heart flipped. Found work! But he wanted to be sure why. So he asked.

“Sir, if you don't mind my asking, what made you decide to take a chance with me? After all, I don't have any skills. "

The manager told Jack that he passed the test with flying colors.

“You told me the truth. You arrived on time. You jumped in to get down to business when you got here. You wore a smile. You put the customer's needs above your task. You are the type of person we want to teach. "

Jack smiled all the way home that day. He knew he had learned a valuable lesson.

Getting a job wasn't as difficult as I initially feared.

It was okay that he didn't know how to get a job, because he was willing to ask what it took and do everything he could to show that he could do it.

It was okay that he had no skills, because he was honest about it.

It was okay that he had no experience, because he was willing to show that he would work hard to learn.

...

Jack's story can teach us all a lot. Regardless of the job we're trying to get.

Jack's attitude of whatever it takes, coupled with his commitment to showing that it was worth it to him.

And the next time you're looking for a job, it might be worth it too.

I did not find it; I did it.


I read everything I could, learned my craft, practiced success and failure, and finally made my own business doing high-end software consulting, something that I am passionate about and love to do.

Do you know what is exciting? Present an update to the 10 million people currently visiting your client's website and see how the code you wrote to publish it runs smoothly, without any interruption of service, even under thousands of requests per second.

I read everything I could, learned my craft, practiced success and failure, and finally made my own business doing high-end software consulting, something that I am passionate about and love to do.

Do you know what is exciting? Present an update to the 10 million people currently visiting your client's website and see how the code you wrote to publish it runs smoothly, without any interruption of service, even under thousands of requests per second.

It is wonderful. I work with great clients who love me and my job, and I don't have to deal with typical office sycophants with the habit of fondling their boss's genitals for a few extra bucks and a little more power. Please.



I work with the people I choose to work with, and if it's not great, I say goodbye.

It's been a bumpy ride, and it's certainly not great all the time as I've grown up and learned, but check this out:

  1. I don't usually have to wear my pants to work. My office is 10 steps from the bed.
  2. I wake up when I want and go to bed when I want.
  3. I'm hardly afraid of losing my job, because if a client decides they hate me on a whim, I don't have to dust off my CV and desperately search for a new employer. I just laugh and enjoy the many other clients that provide me with income.
  4. I have the freedom to stop working and hang out with my kids and my wife whenever I want.
  5. If I don't feel like working, I don't have to.
  6. We often "temporarily move" to other states and countries (we live in the US) and I continue to work as usual, except on the beach. Fantastic.
  7. My income is not limited by some mid-level manager with an attitude problem.



But do you want to know the process of creating this job?

I had to work very, very hard every day to master my craft. I'm not even close to the best in the field yet, but I know what I'm doing and I do a great job for my clients. Hard and smart work pays off.

I had to take risks that no one else wanted to take, like ditching normal day work, sacrificing income sometimes, and just going to the wall in negotiating for better clients, jobs, and work, even when I personally don't think I can or deserve it.

I had to learn to fail and learn to succeed. Many people are not failing because they are not doing anything unsafe. That might work for you, but it will never progress. Or if it does, it's weird or slow. Good luck. It takes a lot of failure to figure out how to get back on your feet and realize that life isn't about being right the first time. Success is more about perseverance in the face of bad odds and failure, and not being so selfish that you can't change tack to get what you want and need.

I had to submit a lot of paperwork. I'm probably not complying yet, but that's life as a business owner. It's the tradeoff you probably should be willing to make. There are many things in business that are not glamorous. It's annoying and it has to be done and you put up with it and you do it in order to keep operating.

I had to choose the career over entertainment. I used to play a lot of video games, which is fine and I still do occasionally, but now I really limit it so I can spend time on things that increase my freedom, spare time, money, enjoyment of life or time. with family, friends and experiences. Personally, I would rather travel the world than play video games. Most people would, but they don't see that while video games aren't bad, they reduce the amount of time you have available to increase your income (and therefore freedom).

I had to overcome almost all the fears that I had. Work in progress, of course, but I don't worry much about the fear of looking dumb, people don't like me, losing money, the future, insecurity, self-doubt, all that package. It's not that those things aren't valid to think about sometimes, but they can't stop you from doing them or you will become paralyzed. Do you know someone who is always talking about how "Someday I'm going to ..."? That person is paralyzed with fear. Fear is usually much worse and much more limiting than reality, which is that very few people care about your success or failure, so regardless of what you do wrong, you can get up and try again. You may need to move 10 miles down the road, but it will be fine :)



Basically, the gist of it all is that you can do everything yourself if you are willing to work hard and ignore everyone and everything that says you can't do it (as long as they are wrong).

There are many people who have been occasional smokers for over a decade and they are people who tried to quit nth times, for a week, sometimes for 15 days, sometimes for a month, and up to 3 months. But they always returned to the same habit.

A few days ago, somehow and luckily, I went through an online blog, a very eye-catching article titled: 'New Years Resolutions Don't Work. Instead, build systems. ' I read it.

There are many people who have been occasional smokers for over a decade and they are people who tried to quit nth times, for a week, sometimes for 15 days, sometimes for a month, and up to 3 months. But they always returned to the same habit.

A few days ago, somehow and luckily, I went through an online blog, a very eye-catching article titled: 'New Years Resolutions Don't Work. Instead, build systems. ' I read it.

What I learned from him was that there are problems with goals, however that does not mean that one should not set goals because 'Living without clear goals is like driving in a thick fog' as Brian Tracy wrote in his book, Goals.

People often set goals like quitting for a week or a month, because simply quitting for good is a difficult task. So every time they hit those little goals, they celebrate and feel great. And whenever they fail, they are disappointed. More importantly, after a few days, they go back to smoking.

I finally learned that resolutions don't always work, but systems work.

Let's start with: What is a system? A system is something you do on a regular basis that increases your chances of long-term happiness.

I would share the 3 steps to create the system that can help you quit smoking:

1. Decide what you want to achieve

2. Choose ONE habit that will push you toward your desired result.

3. Check your system periodically

Step one: how do you decide what you want to achieve? There is a technique called - 'The Five Whys' technique, which can help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. Asking why five times can help me identify your primary motivation and differentiate between what you want from what you really want.

What you really wanted is: you want to quit smoking. Your 5 whys could be like:

First Why? When I run on a treadmill or climb stairs, I gasp really fast.

Second Why? I want to be healthy.

Third Why? If you have taken out a term insurance policy, you should know that the premium for smokers is almost double that for non-smokers. You will want to save on this unnecessary habit.

Fourth, why? You don't want dark lips to attract the attention of parents and family members.

Fifth Why? If you are underweight or unhealthy, you may be snoring a lot in your sleep.

Well, when you are clear with step 1, your next step should be 'Pick ONE habit that will push you towards your desired result'. It's choosing an existing habit as a trigger and doing ONE thing immediately afterward.

This means:

1. After lunch, I would not go to smoke

2. After a long meeting, I would not go to smoke

And few more

So far, you've decided what you want to achieve and why, you've identified your ONLY thing, and now you need to systematize it.

Now, how do you systematize it? It requires building a feedback loop (oh how there can't be a 'loop' in systems, they are the building block of programming skills). This feedback loop is made up of evidence, relevance, consequence, and action. To illustrate:

Evidence: you can keep a journal to note whether or not you smoke

Relevance: If you smoke, these notes can help you keep it up whether you are objective or not

Consequence: you would begin to realize that this behavior can endanger your health in the long term

Action: You learn from mistakes and replace the cigarette with something healthier like fresh juice.

This is how your system can work.

Based on the steps, I would like to conclude:

1. Systems are more effective than goals because systems retain self-control, which can be used to resist temptation.

2. To build an effective system, you must decide what you want to achieve, choose ONE habit that will push you toward what you want, and regularly review your system so that you can improve it.

3. If you're not moving where you want to be, look for evidence that is relevant, consider what will happen if you don't change, and take appropriate action.

I would like to share what a great philosopher has said and that I have also begun to believe: 'A good system shortens the road to the goal'

Ciao!

Hmm. It sounds peculiar.

How do you apply? Submitting resumes to online job postings or online body search organizations like Monster.com? Or send a resume to places that have posted in the Help Wanted section of newspapers or magazines?

If that's what you've been doing, you haven't been applying for a job.

It doesn't matter how flashy your resume may be. Nor how much money may he have spent on self-proclaimed "consultants" and "employment services" and "resume writers."

With any online post, to which you reply via email, there is a possibility that someone will contact you

It doesn't matter how flashy your resume may be. Nor how much money may he have spent on self-proclaimed "consultants" and "employment services" and "resume writers."

Con cualquier publicación en línea, a la que responda por correo electrónico, la probabilidad de que alguien se comunique con usted es de aproximadamente 1: 10,000.

That is because those portals receive thousands and thousands of resumes for every posting. They are run through a selection sieve, which looks for certain key words and word patterns. Unless you have a high proportion of those words, the resume will be discarded, erased from memory. Without any responses.

It is very difficult to suggest what you might do, to get yourself a job offer, because we have no idea what you actually have been doing. Nor do we have any idea what you have to offer (education, experience, accomplishments, skills, career focus). We don’t know how you are presenting yourself. We don’t know how you are finding job openings. We don’t know what kind of job you want, and how that compares with what you have to offer an employer for that job.

Cleary, there must be reasons why you are getting no response. It may be, as noted above, that you are taking an approach where a response to any applicant is exceedingly unlikely. Or you may be doing something wrong. Or you may be doing lots of things wrong. Or you may not be doing some things which are necessary.

What I see in your posting is akin to e-mailing a mechanic, saying “My car was making a strange noise, and now it won’t start. What should I do?”

My guess is that your job search is as vague and unfocused and incomplete as is the question you posted. You are not going to get much advice other than broad generalizations, with such an inadequate question. If this question resembles how you are trying to get a job, you are facing a long, dry summer.

Honestamente hablando, Dubai tiene un mercado laboral muy difícil en este momento. Me tomó alrededor de 5 meses encontrar trabajo y solo lo encontré aquí a través de mi familia. Lo mismo ocurre con mi novia, buscó trabajo durante casi 9 meses completos en todas las plataformas en línea que pudo encontrar. La única forma en que encontró trabajo fue porque mi hermano la puso en contacto con un amigo.

To advance to this point, you must understand our history. I am an Indian expat from a relatively wealthy family that has made Dubai their home for over 30 years. My girlfriend is a white American from Texas. We both have US college degrees Yg

Honestly speaking, Dubai has a very tough job market right now. It took me about 5 months to find a job and I only found it here through my family. The same goes for my girlfriend, she looked for a job for almost 9 full months on every online platform she could find. The only way she found work was because my brother put her in touch with a friend.

To further this point you have to understand our history. I am an Indian expat from a relatively wealthy family who has made Dubai their home for 30+ years. My girlfriend is a white american from Texas. Both of us have university degrees from the USA and good work experience.

If you want some major advice Ill tell you one thing. DO NOT come to Dubai on a visit or tourist visa and start looking for a job. It will take way too long and you will spend all your money. Another piece of advice would be to never fall for a CV distribution scam. There are a couple in this city. They will take your money and never call back.

It will take a lot of time to find a good Job in Dubai. If you have the right skills and experience you can find a good job. If not your looking at jobs that pay very little. When I started working here in Dubai I had a starting salary of 3000 AED. In the USA my first job was paying me about 3000 USD. Just be patient. Keep applying online and you will find a job sooner or later. But while you are looking for a job just keep working and building skills to put on that resume. I see a lot of people post for help “ please sir I am looking for work in Dubai”. This will never work no one will ever hire you through informal social media platforms. Here are some links to check out.

En mi opinión, si desea un trabajo, debe investigar y encontrar las empresas a las que postularse. Asegúrese de ir directamente a sus plataformas profesionales. Encuentro que funciona mucho mejor que usar Linkedin.

Espero que esto ayude a algunas personas.

Casi todos los recién graduados pueden estar de acuerdo en que conseguir un trabajo se ha convertido en un trabajo en sí mismo. Atrás quedaron los días en los que simplemente te sentabas en la universidad y esperabas que los reclutadores vinieran a llamar cuando venían durante las semanas de carrera.

Hoy en día ha cambiado la forma en que se contrata a los empleados. Hay métodos que le brindan una mayor probabilidad de conseguir un trabajo que otros obsoletos.

Por ejemplo:

  1. Get your name on AdWords - There's a guy named Alec Brownstein who used this trick. First, he made sure he knew the names of New York's top advertising directors. Then it happened

Almost all recent graduates can agree that getting a job has become a job in itself. Gone are the days when you just sat in college and expected recruiters to come call when they came during career weeks.

Today the way employees are hired has changed. There are methods that give you a greater chance of landing a job than outdated ones.

For instance:

  1. Having your name appear in AdWords — there's a certain guy by the name Alec Brownstein that used this trick. He first of all made sure that he learnt the name of NYC's top advertising directors. Then he spent a grand total of 6 Dollars to buy Google ads that would show at the top of searches when those directors googled their own names. They were surprised that when they googled their own name , his ad was the first thing that appeared and this landed him a job with one of those advertising companies that were surely praising him for his own creativity.
  2. Use video — unfortunately using the standard CV and old cover letter combination doesn't cut it out anymore. You could stand out by sending a personalized thank you video instead of the normal thank you email.
  3. Get a website — you should get a personal website and have your own domain name even if it's basic. This will give recruiters a place to find all of your relevant information without too much digging. You should also not forget to attach the link to all your profiles, emails and business cards.
  4. Start a blog — there is a very good example of someone who got a job after starting a blog. He was known as Kevin Espiritu. He even admitted that his job interview was awful but he was hired nonetheless due to his online presence.

For a fully legit job, you need

  • Have driver’s license or non-driver ID and social security card.
  • Live in a state that does not require youth work permits (AZ) or will issue them to 14- and 15-year-olds (about 10 states). Have your youth work permit if required in your state (usually done through the school guidance office). Some have different names, like "work papers" in New York.
  • Find a place that caters for minors and has a sufficient labor shortage that you are likely to hire one (14–15 worse stigma than 16–17). Many places do not hire under-21s or prioritize under-21s, even without alcohol. America

  • Find a place that will consider underage minors and has a sufficient labor shortage to be likely to hire one (14–15 worse stigma than 16–17). Many places wont hire or greatly de-prioritize under-21 even with no alcohol. American age discrimination laws are only for 40–65. They don’t cover 16/18–24. New York has an employer tax credit that encourages hiring 16–24.

Or you can just work under the table. Easier in east coast than west coast. Farms, dirt car and nascar-feeder race tracks, rodeos, non-major-league sports stadiums, newspaper delivery, commission-only cash sales, small moving companies, target setters in shooting competitions. Race tracks, rodeos, and non-major-league sports stadiums are best for regular employment but hours will be still low but with surges. Farms hire youth under the table when they need unskilled surge labor. However, today, Illegal immigrants are hogging the informal job market that used to be dominated by underage youth, disability-cheaters, and convicted felons, but there are still some opportunities.

There are entrepreneurial odd jobs you can do too. Mowing lawns, landscape, delivery, rent-a-coder / codguru, fiverr.

I met a guy who was bombarding me with his ideas. Every day I would find an email or a Skype chat with questions and proposals. He was so active that he actually got one of his jobs just by seeing a well-known president of a large company during a conference lunch. The president was eating soup, so this guy asked for 5 minutes of his time, explained how active he is… and got the job! Our paths parted, but I remember him as the toughest person I've ever worked with. There was no problem that he couldn't solve.

I also had the pleasure of working with a girl, whose work was quite mundane. She was

I met a guy who was bombarding me with his ideas. Every day I would find an email or a Skype chat with questions and proposals. He was so active that he actually got one of his jobs just by seeing a well-known president of a large company during a conference lunch. The president was eating soup, so this guy asked for 5 minutes of his time, explained how active he is… and got the job! Our paths parted, but I remember him as the toughest person I've ever worked with. There was no problem that he couldn't solve.

I also had the pleasure of working with a girl, who’s work was rather mundane. She was shy, she kept to herself. But from time to time, like once every quarter, she would have a very well thought through idea on how to improve the things we do. We implemented every one.

I remember another guy. He was a greenhorn, but a fearless idea introducer. I spent so much time explaining to him why his ideas wouldn't work. He was not disappointed. He kept on. Fast-forward twelve months, and he was my go-to-guy if I wanted to discuss my ideas, or put them to test.

All of them had one thing in common – the reason they joined a company.

To make a change, not to just do the work.

This is so rare that you can interrupt people eating their lunch, and you still would get hired.
