How To Stand Out To Get Hired When You Really Want A Job

In recent times the job market have been seeing drastic declines leading to widespread unavailability of jobs around the world. Therefore, if you are a job-seeker, not only do you have to be competent to succeed in landing a position in your targeted field, it's also important to take necessary measures that will make you stand out as a candidate.

If there is a certain job that you are interested in, most likely there will be other candidates with the same level of enthusiasm and qualification to fill the position just like you. The key to getting a job you really want is taking measures that will make you stand out and maximize your chances of becoming the candidate the company will hire.

Apply For The Job Even When There Is No Vacancies

Most people would apply for a job only when a vacancy exist. However, when you want to stand out you should apply for the job even when the company have no available vacancy for the position you want to work in.

Some companies may actually create a position for an applicant they consider has the potential to bring benefit to them even when a vacancy is not available.

Also, if the company have your resume at hand, you'll most likely be called for an interview when the position becomes open before they announce the vacancy and call in new applicants.

Apply In Person And leave Your Resume

If it's possible to go into the company and speak to the recruiters in person, do so. People have the tendency to be influenced by people they actually met more than people they just read about. If you present yourself in person to the company as an interested candidate you'll get more attention than merely sending in your application. In fact, this a way of guaranteeing that your application will be looked at. And remember to leave your resume to whomever you speak to.

Write A Resume That Will Impress 

It is very important to make sure that your resume gives a strong impression about your personality and qualification. The company will use this document to assess your suitability to work for them, therefore you need to put all the right information in the correct way that will impress the readers.

Make sure to proofread the document as to avoid spelling and grammatical errors. Also, use high quality paper and ink to produce your document. Place it in a full size manila folder to submit instead of folded in a smaller envelope.

Follow Up After A Period of Time Pass

When a period of time pass after making the application, follow up with a phone call or by dropping by. This will make whomsoever you spoke to know that you are still interested, and you'll get updates in time to know if it's still possible to get hired for the job you want.

Create The Right Impression At The Interview 

Dress appropriately for the interview because you are going to be judge by your presentation. Relax and be confident in the interview room. Answer your questions informatively. Let the information you are giving and your presentation reflect your suitability for the position. Express courtesy, smile, make eye contact and speak with a warm tone of voice

Remember, everything you do in the effort to get a job you want should help you stand out over other candidates. Give an optimal output when you are going after the job. And go after the job with the mindset that you are the best person to be hired, it's just a matter of standing out to prove it.

Richard Branson Advice On Entrepreneurship - Taking Risks

I read this article the other day on about taking risks which was written by British business magnate Richard Branson himself. The article was focused on the idea of stepping out of your comfort zone and getting out of your regular routine to take on new challenges as a great way of reaching success.

This article was very interesting and inspiring considering that it was written by one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs.

It is well known that taking risks is one of the forefront aspects of entrepreneurship so learning what Richard Branson had to say about risk-taking is something that every aspiring entrepreneur would want to pay attention to.

According to Richard Branson it's easy to get stuck in one particular way of doing things for a long time, but taking chances is a great way to test yourself and push boundaries which could also be a lot of fun.

Branson said that one of his early experiences of taking risks was, when he was a child his Auntie bet him 10 shillings that he wouldn't learn to swim by the time they returned from a family vacation.

Determined to prove her wrong, when young Richard spotted a river on the drive back home, he asked his dad to stop the car, then ran out and jumped into the water in his underwear.

Branson said he first sank and swallowed water, but he kicked upward, and to his amazement began to swim downstream. At the end, Richard got his 10-shilling note which was the most money he ever had in his hand at that time.

Take Chances And Improve Upon The Results

Richard Branson learned from that experience and later challenges in life that it's important to try things that might possibly lead to loss or negative outcomes, then improvise solutions along the way.

This approach towards life is evident in Richard Branson's entrepreneurial ventures  because he started new highly risky companies such as a record label and an airline.

Branson said in his autobiography about his decision to start an airline "My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them ... from the perspective of wanting to live life to the full, I felt that I had to attempt it"

Figure Out The Odds Of Success Before You Take The Risks

Risk-taking always involves uncertain loss, but according to Richard Branson you should first calculate your risks to make the best judgement before hand.

"One of the great benefits of taking on challenges in your working life is that you and your team learn to confront risk together – and also to lose sometimes, because when you make a good wager, the odds are not going to be in your favor. The calculated risks you and your team take should be strategic judgments, not just blind gambles: Protect the downside by figuring out the odds of success, working out what the worst possible consequences would be, then deciding whether to accept" Branson said.

This is very important because you want to logically decide if the risk is worth taking by properly considering the possible success and the possible loss. If you can afford to deal with the consequences of failure posed by the targeted venture, then why not give it a shot, especially if success is highly profitable.

Richard Branson also wrote why taking risks is important for being competitive and enduring in business.

He said "You need to hone these skills, because you and your team are going to face adversity at some point. No matter what industry you work in, the nature of business is change, and so while you can prepare for every possibility, some new, unexpected circumstance is likely to thwart you. The only thing that's meaningful about such setbacks is whether you bounce back"
