Get Hired Not Fired
Hiring and Firing
What really goes on behind the doors of the Human Resource Professionals? Are you prepared to face the person who practically holds your future in their hands.?. Whether you use these tips to get a job or to keep a job,you will be among many in the search so you have to get all the information you can.
Once your unemployed more than six months, your considered pretty much unemployable. They assume that other people have already passed you over,so we don't want anything to do with you.
When it comes to getting hired, who you know really does matter.No matter how nice your resume' is or how great your experience may be, It's all about the connections.
If your trying to get a job at a specific company you should avoid HR all together. Talk to someone you know or go straight to the person doing the hiring.
HR will judge you based on your email address so have one that is appropriate.
If your in your 50s, or 60s don't put the year you graduated on your resume'.
Most HR's read resumes from the bottom up, using the tracking system, looking for key words,so us words that are used in the job description. The resume does not have to be one page long but three pages is pushing it, pushing it in the trash without reading it. No color is needed and do not just drop off your resume'.
Which are you
There's no need to ask HR's to tell you about the business,use the Internet.
And people you will be judged on first impressions,so if your fat,or whatever be prepared to be stereotyped.If you don't measure up you probably won't be hired. In this day and age you will be judge from the car you drive to your favorite football team.It still happens.
Be sure to turn your phone completely off. No humming, no dings and no bubble bursting sounds.
Try to have a firm handshake.This shows strength in character and puts forth a hint of pride. Besides no one wants to shake hands with a limp noodle.
Please be nice to everyone,especially the front desk or receptionist,if your not the HRs will find out about it.
One guarantee way of not getting hired is to mention that you got fired from a job.Your resume' will go directly into the trash.
Persistence dose not always payoff.Checking in once or twice a week is fine.Do not make a nuisance of yourself by continually calling,the is very annoying.Most times they just tell you that they ended up hiring someone else even if they haven't-just to get you off their back.
If your former employer hated you don't use him as a reference,use HR.
One last thing about interviewing-you all think your're wonderful,deserve the job and the highest available salary but in HR we know the truth.
