Working on your dream job is more like working on a movie. May sound funny, but both the goals are quite same. Let us make you understand how; by knowing this you will automatically understand the simple steps you need to take to get your dream job.
- Select – While searching for any kind of job the prime document is your Resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV). You have to become very specific toward the things you want to showcase to the recruiters. They must be genuine and relevant to the job you are looking for. Remember, this is your first impression on the recruiters.
But, a strong foundation cannot be formed with poor bricks. Get the relevant education; assemble everything that can build a strong foundation for your dream job. (Big budget, popular faces & heavy promotions couldn’t save Bombay Velvet from being a disaster; hope you have heard the name of the film). So, select the content wisely.
- Script – The way you have written the resume plays a pivotal role to get on the priority list of recruiters. Information must be clear and concise. Mention all you have collected in an effective manner so that; it shines in the eye of the selectors. (Recall any of the Blockbuster movies; it would certainly have an appealing script) So, make one.
Preparing an impressive resume is the first step toward getting a dream job. Have you prepared one? Well, if you are yet to meet your dream job, you must start following these steps now.
