How To Plan For A Job!

Plan!

Targeting Specific Job!

Securing a job requires a match between the employer who has a job opening and the employee who will be performing the job. Because this goal involves two parties, there are two factors to consider when determining your job search objectives:
1. What does the employer expect from the position?
2. What do you intend to gain from this position?
At the same time, you’re not looking for just any job. You are looking for work for specific reasons. Once you know exactly what you would like in your next job, you can search for it. If your priority is to begin a specific career path, you will look for opportunities for growth, advancement, learning, and mentorship in your next job.

1. Industry
You should consider your interests and values carefully to determine what you want in general and how you could prioritise jobs that meet some but not all of the criteria. Do not choose broad industry. You will want to subcategorize because if you pick too broad an industry, you will have the dilution-of-efforts problem as if you haven’t specified an industry at all. It is necessary to be specific in describing the jobs you want in order to find them.

2. Geographies
Finally, even if you know what you’re doing (function) and for whom you’re doing it (industry), you must know where you’ll be physically. You want to think about how narrow your geographic range is: neighborhood, city, multiple cities, multiple states, multiple countries. You may decide to launch a job search in several geographies.

3. Compensation & Advancement
There are numerous components to compensation, such as health benefits, equity or stock options, retirement plan and pensions, bonuses etc. Nonprofit and government jobs do not typically include any type of bonus. If a specific element of compensation is high on your priority list, you should research what is customary in the sector, industry, and function you are considering. The variety of offerings varies greatly between companies and even within companies. One company in the same industry and function may pay more or less and have a different compensation structure than another in the same industry and function.

Planning prior to the Interview:

Dress Code : 
If your usual dress code has been casual up to this point, you’ll probably feel strange in a suit at first, but once it’s on, you’ll start to look and feel the part. Strategic clothing choices can also help you feel more at ease. Check your interview attire ahead of time. If you’re shopping from your existing wardrobe, go over everything for marks, stains, missing buttons, and sagging hems, giving yourself plenty of time to make any necessary repairs. If you’re going to treat yourself to something new, don’t leave it until the last minute – you want to be relaxed the night before the interview, not frantically searching for something that fits.

Grooming
Whenever it comes to your hair, use the same approach. Take a close look as soon as you get the interview so you have enough time to get your locks trimmed if necessary. A neat overall appearance is more important than the style of your hair, and this also applies to beards. Make sure your fringe is trimmed so you’re not squinting through a curtain at the interviewers. If you have long hair, tie it back for a professional look that will prevent nervous twirling or flicking.

Online Interview
The very same rules apply when making preparations for a remote interview. Test your framing well before video interview to get an idea of what the interviewers will be seeing and plan your outfit accordingly. Wear a different pattern than your wallpaper, and make sure your outfit looks put-together from the shoulders up (no relying on shoes to make a T-shirt and trousers look more professional, for example). Even if the interview is over the phone, dress professionally. When you’re still in your PJs, it’s difficult to get into the zone.
Tips for Online Interviews:

●  Make sure you have good internet speed (Google ‘internet speed test’), ideally be on the ethernet and not wifi.
●  Keep camera steady and showing your face.
●  Connect a wired headphone/microphone instead of relying on the enbuilt laptop microphone.
●  Remember to dress well and be presentable even for online interview.
●  Know the shortcut keys of the tools you are going to use for the interview.
●  Know that your voice modulation and body/facial expressions still matter in an online interview.
●  Avoid getting distracted, sit somewhere quiet with minimum noise.
