But as fresh graduates, that is not our problem for now, if the job market was going to be garden, well and good ; we could enjoy a picnic with our recruiters and get employee. But then if it is a jungle as it is now, not too bad either, at least we could pluck some fruits in this jungle only that we are not going to pluck it with a glass of chilled beer (relaxed and pleasurably) in hand.
Not every one in this jungle has plucked lest licked a fruit either. It is not they are critically unlucky, just that they are making the mistake of throwing the wrong stones at these fruits.

When you embark on an application for a job placement, a serious and attractive company is going to go length in having a spreadsheet your personality. “Applicants who uncover beyond-the-basics knowledge of the job and the company…are better able to communicate specific ways they can contribute to the organization’s success,” according to Messer. .
- Publicizing any form of indecency.
“Don’t post anything that would appear unprofessional [think spring break photos, rants about a former employer, etc.] to a hiring manager or recruiter,” Messmer says.
- Behaving Casual
The moment you start a job search, it is necessary to make certain you put on a fitting professional countenance and behavior corresponding to your aspiring career. Messmer says “Keep land-line and cellphone voice-mail greetings clear, professional and succinct,” “Likewise, avoid using off-color or overly cute email addresses or signatures.”
- Losing a grip on your manners
Of course, you are not going to secure every job apply for. Not only you, but me too. But then the knowledge doesn’t stop you from showing a good sense of hospitality and courtesy.”Express appreciation to everyone who helps you in your job search, whether or not their efforts on your behalf are successful,” he says. “Also be sure to send thank-you notes to every hiring manager you meet.”
