Dear Friends, I know everyone of us go through different life situation. There are moments of happiness, gratefully and enjoyment and there are moments of sadness, painful and broken. These sadness and happiness moments may happen either to our relationship, business life, employment or to our general life mattered situation. As ocean wave, morning is small ripples, while afternoon is large ripples (ceteris paribus), happy or sad situation is not permanent to anyone of us. Sometimes unexpectedly, out of our control, some changes happen in our life. These changes may be positive or adverse to our life cycle. Some situation may lead high profit to our business hence happiness while other situation may lead fall of profit (or loss) hence sadness.

You may have right skills and qualified, but getting new job may be difficult and time consuming.

* Reading carefully job description and requirements before send your application.

* For email application, prepare the attractive short mail body to express your skill and experience.

* After send application, prepare good feedback request mail, which you will send several days after closure of application window.

To all recruiters, we are recognizing and appreciate for service you provide to job seekers. More has to be done to help many job seekers to secure the job. You have power to transform and change the job seeker attitude toward give-up. You are in position to transform somebody life to better professional life. Inspite of what you have been done so far, you are suppose to change attitude of “lack of skills” toward un-experienced graduate. You can invite many un-experienced graduates to interview in line with experienced candidate for them to learn and fill the pitch of interview. You should provide the feedback to all candidate you have rejected. We all know the power of feedbacks to transform the skills and mindset of candidate.
