#2 DON’T – Ignore social networks to find an opportunity
You even can’t believe that Facebook in some cases would give you much more power when we’re talking about some interesting job opportunities. HR’s are looking for candidate, who would not only have some hard skills, but would always fit the corporate culture. And when we’re talking about a good place to understand who you are – facebook will get all i need now. That’s why keep you facebook profile clean and during an active job search, try to remove all the bad stuff or photos out of there.
#3 DO – Find professional HR’s
Stop talking to your friends, asking them to help you find the job you are looking for. Try to do it a little bit more professional way. Try to find out professional HR specialist in the field you would like to work. It would guarantee you a feedback about what should you improve in your resume and you would have a good chance to understand if you even could fit a desired position.
Also it’s a good idea to write to a professional recruiting agencies. They have their own databases and could help you to find a job you are seeking for.
#4 DON’T – Say bad things about your EX-BOSS
You should understand the main rule – NEVER write or say bad things about your ex-boss, even you would never meet him/her again. It’s not about “karma” – it’s more about what your interviewer will think and what decisions would they make about you. It’s better to say nothings instead of say some bad things and be involved into some tricky conversations.
