iFashion Report: Ten Rules to find a Job

According to researchers there are ten ways to find a job. Most of the time potential employers will google you to find out what social sites you are on and it there any negative things about you online.

1. You can no longer depend on a resume to get an interview. Simply mailing out resumes and then sitting back and waiting for responses was never that effective, and today.

2. Your experience matters less than it used to. This is unfair, but people don't want to hear about everything you did way back when. They want to hear about everything you can do, specifically, to help them today.

3. You shouldn't expect to hear back. Unfortunately, this little courtesy has gone the way of the vinyl record. Keep on networking, interviewing, and researching right up until the moment you have a firm job offer.
A resume is no longer a comprehensive summary of your work emphasize more on recent accomplishments, certifications, and training.

5. You will need one that is easily uploadable, downloadable, and scannable (i.e., no bullets, boxes, boldface, unusual fonts, indenting). It should be rich in the "keywords" that employers in your field are looking for.

6. In fact, overall computer literacy is a must. Get comfortable with applying for jobs online and learn how to research on the Internet. If all this is new to you, your public library is a good place to start.

7. A good idea is to go one step further and establish a lively Internet presence. Explore socal sites such as LinkedIn , Twitter, and Facebook for networking.
8. One of the first things a potential employer will do is Google you. That means you need to find out if there's anything negative about you online. If there is something bad, try to get it removed.

9. More than ever it's about who you know, and who knows you. This is important: Finding employment nowadays is less a matter of applying for existing open positions and more about identifying needs potential employers have and demonstrating to them that you can fill these needs.

10. Good Luck in the job hunting fielding
