Mistakes Job Applicants Should Never Make

For job seekers, it is an absolutely tough world out there as finding the right job is even more difficult than it seems to be. The increased completion in the job market has not helped the case of job seekers either. Though hard work is still an essential factor which ultimately determines the success of a job search process, nowadays smart work is also needed.

Though each job applicant is unique, facing unique challenges when looking for the right job, there are some common mistakes made by job seekers. Some of the most common ones are mentioned below.

Top Mistakes Made by Job Applicants

Not Being Prepared For The Interview - As a job seeker, it is a big crime if you are going to an interview totally unprepared. Top recruiters around the world consider this the biggest put-down for them when candidates turn up with doing any research about the organization, the services/products offered by the company, the job profile for which they are applying, etc.

Embellishing the Resume - This again features among the top mistakes that recruiters advise applicants never to make. Whether it is your experience you are embellishing, your skill sets, or any other aspect of your professional life, it makes a really bad impression on the recruiters & you are most likely to lose their interest even before you have had a chance for a personal interview.

Turning Up Late - This again is one of the most common blunders made by job applicants. Whatever be the reason, there is no excuse for latecomers. It is better to leave early for the venue to avoid any unforeseen hassles en-route e.g. traffic jams, etc.

Not Dressing As Per The Occasion - Though there are many companies today that do not advocate a formal dress code for their employees, but as a job applicant unless you are very sure about this, it is always better to be formally dressed. It basically shows that you are serious about the job, if nothing else.

These are some of the most commonly repeated mistakes that should be avoided in order to ensure that you crack the job interview & get the job you have always dreamed about.

Job Consultancies Bridge The Gap Between Job Seekers And Employers

Even as the population of skilled workers increased and so did the setting up of businesses, the increase was happening in a disarrayed fashion. Placement Cells (wherever one existed) of educational institutes were frantically trying to find the organizations where the students could be placed. The employers on the other hand were also bending over backwards to fill the vacancies. It is in this situation that the Job Consultancies came in and by providing Recruitment Solutions, lessened the burden of both the Job Seekers and the Employers.

Nowadays, most employers prefer to hire the Job Consultancies to meet their recruitment demands. Screening through the thousands of resumes to find the most suitable Job Seeker is not an easy task and requires dedicated efforts. The Job Consultancies screen out the relevant resumes from the Job Portals and hold the initial interviews over the telephone and in person. They analyze the skills possessed by the candidate and the minimum requirements of the Job Profile. If found up to the mark and if the difference between the salary expected by the candidate and offered by the employer is not very vast, a meeting is arranged between the candidate and the employer. In some cases, even the negotiation of salary is done by the Job Consultancy. The employer thus finds the best person for the post.

Job Seekers can also apply to the Job Consultancies and submit their resumes with them. They are then considered by the consultancy when vacancies in the post applied for are there. Thus, the Job Seekers are saved from the inconvenience of going to the companies themselves. Some Job Consultancies also provide Counseling to the Job Seekers or Job related training.

Job Consultancies have become a vital part of the Recruitment Industry. They arrange for the demand of the employers to be met with the supply of the relevant workforce. Thus, they serve both the Employers and the Job Seekers, bridging the gap between them.

One-On-Many Panel Interview

People going for the interview may have to face a hot boiler-like situation, when a panel of interviewers is waiting to welcome them. Facing a panel with all the interviewers together is not an easy task as it puts one under immense pressure. It is like confronting, accepting and dodging several viewpoints at the same time. Nowadays many companies opt for panel interview while undertaking the recruitment process, but why is it preferred and what exactly does it involve?

Why Panel Interview?

  • From the companies’ perspective
    • The real self of the interviewer emerges in the process of extensive interviewing.
    • It saves time: It is a part of the time management strategy for a company, to bring all the interviewers together to meet the interviewee in a single session, rather than fixing individual session with each interviewer.
  • From the perspective of the applicants
    • Less time consuming: Get a chance to meet the company professionals in one go, and understand how they work as a team.

But, generally it is quite stressful for the applicants to face the panel. Some tips to come out of the panel interview with flying colors include:

  • Ask the HR Recruiter about the company’s interview agenda.
  • Gain information about the company, before coming for the interview. Do research to gain information about each panel member.
  • Maintain eye contact with every member in the panel while answering. Make initial eye contact with the person asking the question, then include all.
  • Come prepared for the obvious questions like, “Tell me something about yourself”. Your answers should present different aspects of your personality. Remember that you have to impress everyone.
  • Answer behavioral questions honestly. As there are people with different viewpoints, so there are chances that you can be cross checked.

The key to successfully facing a panel interview lies in coming prepared and facing the panel with confidence. The panel interview should be taken as an opportunity for the job seekers to prove themselves valuable to the company in a single meet to many members of the company.
