The 3 don'ts of job searching


Are you currently looking for a job or perhaps an internship? It's not an easy task, but when you’re looking for a new job, remember that you have absolute control over everything you do during a job search. We've all heard about what to do when job searching, but we aren't usually paying attention to the wrong things we shouldn't do.


The worst mistake you can do is to send a disorganized and messy CV to a potential employer. These resumes simply do not stand out and showcase your strengths. On the other hand, with a clear, trendy, and visual CV, you do not only stand out from the crowd, but it's also easier to read. Free visual CV templates can be found at Canva or at Novoresume.


The second error you can do when applying for a job is to send a very long job application, and even worse if it has grammar errors. On the other hand, with a short but precise and grammatically correct resume, you have an edge to get to the next step of the process. There are a lot of grammar softwares that can help you with polishing your resume, one example is Grammarly.


The last thing you can't afford to do is to leave nasty or ugly traces on the web, for example, if you have publicly scolded a former boss or you have some nasty pictures. Having a positive image or a good profile on the web, such as sharing worthwhile posts, or maybe attending relevant seminars will guarantee the potential employer that you'll somehow be a good fit to the company.


Good luck with your dream job search!
