COMMON MISTAKES TO AVOID WHEN JOB SEARCHING

1. Only Applying to Job Postings
2. Not Researching Employers Before Interviews
3. Being Unable to Say Why You Want the Job

The first thing most people do when looking for a job is to search online listings. This is fine, however you must supplement that with reaching out to your network. The postings you see online represent only 15% of available jobs available.

One of the first questions an employer will ask is, “Why do you want to work for us?” If you are not able to explain why their organization appeals to you, most likely, you will not make it to round two.

Finally, when asked “Why do you want to work for us?” it’s easy to think, why on earth are you asking me this? I need a job or I would not have applied if I didn’t want this job, etc. However, you should describe why you are the best fit and explain how your skills and strengths meet their needs.
