    31. 31. Getting off to a Good Start January 16, 2013
    32. 32. As you prepare to launch your search, it is important to start off on the right foot to make fewer mistakes and waste less time on the trail. More than anywhere else, here is where, planning preparation and research are crucial.
    33. 33. It is equally critical that you have a solid idea of where you want to go. To point you in the right direction, here are key questions you could ask yourself before you take the plunge.
    34. 34. What career will suit my lifestyle?
    35. 35. Your work is only an aspect of your life, so look for work that will fit your life, not the other way round. By envisioning the life you want, you narrow your choices to those careers that complement that vision.
    36. 36. Would you prefer working in a big company and managing a large staff, or running your business with a couple of assistants?
    37. 37. Which would make you happier? Being office-bound, or doing fieldwork all day? Do office colleagues surround you at your performing best, or do you learn for a flexible arrangement that allows you to work partly from home?
    38. 38. What are my talents and Skills?/ What do I like doing? Look for a job that you feel can make full use of your skills and abilities. It doesn’t seem like work when you enjoy what you are doing. So find out what really catches your interest, what stirs your passion.
    39. 39. Think of the following?  Do you have the gift of gab and can sell just about anything?  Or are you the creative type, with a flair of words or an eye for design?  Are you good in a particular sport?  Can you cook like a pro?  Do you have a green thumb?  Do you consider research as your passion?  Do you like the idea of teaching little children and molding their young minds?  Or are you more attracted to a life of public service?  Is creative work your cup of tea?  Or are you more at home in the realm of cold logic ad hard facts?
    40. 40. What don’t I like about work? Conversely, asking yourself what you cannot stand doing – what bores you to death – will help you further focus. Are you comfortable striking up a conversation with strangers? Does anything technical make you yawn? Do you abhor the limelight? Do you hate the unexpected?
    41. 41. They should give you a mental picture of who you are?, what are your ideal life, your perceived skills, and your turn-ons and turn-offs? After writing down your answers, go over them, and see how they fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
    42. 42. Approach friends, professionals and acquaintances that hold jobs you find interesting. Now look outward for your validation. Read up on or surf the Internet for careers that might suit your lifestyle.
    43. 43. Request if you could do informational interviews (ask them about particulars of their work) or “shadow” them (observe them in action at work). Your objective is to form a clearer image of what they really do – and more importantly, to assess whether you would like to be in their place.
    44. 44. From your findings, you can begin a more informed search for your dream career. In the final analysis, your career choice should depend on your perceived happiness on the job, the potential rewards, and your chances of
    45. 45.
    46. 46. Resumé Writing • Doing the Research • Figuring Out Your Job Opportunities • Highlights • Relevant Skills ad Experience • Work History • Education and Training • Putting it All Together
    47. 47. The next step would be to prepare your resumé. Your career direction will find its name and shape in increments. In other words, everything you study and explore now will contribute to the resumé you send out during your senior year. Your resume will include academic achievements, extracurricular activities and work experiences. Aside from a summary of your abilities, work experience and education, a resumé should reveal your unique selling point to entice a potential employer to buy “you”. (Santamaria, 1991)
    48. 48. and its parts
    49. 49. Parts of the Resumé This includes the following: Heading Objectives/Career Goal Job Position Being Applied For Education Work Experience Personal Details References
    50. 50. Heading Resumés are usually headed with your name, address, and telephone number. This information may either be centered at the top of the page or placed in the top left-hand corner.
    51. 51. Objectives/ Career Goal Our career goal, which follows our personal identification, is one entry that every employer is interested in. We must be as specific as we can, listing our immediate goal and not just some vague future dream. If our ultimate goal is related to the job we are applying for, however, we can add it immediately underneath.
    52. 52. Job Position Being Applied For We must specify the position we are applying for. Examples: System Analyst, Account Executive, etc. This position must be related to our career goal.
    53. 53. Education This major section should state the most important qualifications we can offer for the job we are applying for. If it is work experience, that section should come next. If it is our educational background that is more important, place it first. In either case, we must tailor our qualifications to fit the job requirements. This does not mean, however that we are to falsify the information we provide. It simply means that we are to pick out those qualifications that have the most direct relationship to the job for which we are applying.
    54. 54. Education The most common way to describe our education is to list any university, college or vocational school we have attended with dates of attendances and any diplomas or certificates we have obtained. We always pace our most recent educational experience at the top of the list and work back from there. If we want to stress our education, we may want to include our major field of study and names of significant courses, which we have completed.
    55. 55. Work Experience There are two acceptable ways of presenting our work background. The most common is to list our jobs in chronological order, with the present or the most recent one heading the list.
    56. 56. With such an arrangement, the prospective employer can readily detect our progress or promotions. If we use this format, we should show the following: a.Position held b.Name and Location of Company c.Date the position was held d.Achievement in the Position e.Reason for Leaving f. Duties (emphasize responsibilities) g.Name of Immediate Supervisor (If the person is still there and might be a good reference) h.Job title of supervisor (e.g. systems analyst, field sales manager. etc.)
    57. 57. Personal Details Personal data include sex, age, date and place of birth, race, religion, marital status (including number of children). Health, height, weight, interests, and hobbies.
    58. 58. References Applicants for a job are usually requested to give the names of at least three persons who can be asked or called to speak about us. The most appropriate persons include present or former employers, teachers, and other professionals. Also acceptable is a character reference whose name of occupation is respected.
    60. 60. RESUMÉ WRITING TIPS (JOBSTREET.COM 2003) 1. Avoid spelling boo-boos. Errors, especially simple typo blunders, reflect poorly of the applicant. Proofread over and over until you resumé is perfect. 2. Streamline. Remove personal pronouns like “I” and articles like “a”, “an” and “the” to create punchy phrases and maximize space.
    61. 61. RESUMÉ WRITING TIPS (JOBSTREET.COM 2003) 3. Use power verbs. Action words add “oomph” to your writing and enable you to describe clearly what you did and how well you did it. 4. Use personal details sparingly. Leave out extraneous information to free up limited space. This includes names and occupations of parents, hobbies and interests, birthplace, etc. Reserve them for the interview proper.
    62. 62. RESUMÉ WRITING TIPS (JOBSTREET.COM 2003) 5. Be concise. Resumés are often read in 30 seconds or less so be brief and to the point. Use bullet points to underscore important information. Employ paragraph breaks, lines, and numbers. Keep to no more than two pages – three at most if you really have extensive professional experience. 6. Make it an easy read. Your resumé should be visually appealing: a carelessly printed, sloppily designed resumé is a challenge most recruiters would not bite. Use lots of white spaces, a font size of at least 10 , an at most conservative typestyles. Underline and bold text should be used sparingly and only to highlight significant data or indicate section breaks.
    63. 63. RESUMÉ DO’s & DON’Ts
    64. 64. Be honest. Put extra effort when preparing and writing your resume. Your application is your first contact with your potential employer. RESUMÉ DO’s:

It should highlight the particular information that the employer needs to know about you. RESUMÉ DO’s:
    66. 66. Show continuous pattern of your accomplishments, progress and ambition related to the employer's needs.
