Your resume is your first impression. An interesting resume will make you stand out from other applicants. So, take time to work on your resume/CV. Build a resume that shows your education, relevant experience, skills, and hobbies with a brief job description. Always remember that you cannot use the same resume/CV every time you are applying for the job. Make the necessary changes in your resume according to the job you are applying for. If you haven’t made a resume before, don’t worry. There are tons of sites on the internet where you can learn to make an effective resume/CV.



The Network

An employer is looking for someone they can trust and rely on. Hence, most of the vacancies are filled based on personal recommendations. It is most likely you will get a job through your connection, yet networking is a much-neglected part of the job search. So, let your friends, acquaintances know that you are open to work. Contact the people in your network; tell them what you are looking for and ask for any information or insight they can share.



Learn new skills

Prepare for the job interviews. Make a list of the common interview questions and practice them with your friend or work colleague. This will boost your confidence and increase your chances of success. The most important thing during an interview is language. Always speak a language in which you can explain yourself better. English is not mandatory. And remember you can ask questions too. If you have any doubts regarding salary, your post, or your area of work, it is better to ask them during interviews.



Take a break
