Are you still looking for the security that comes from a paid job?
Well, these day finding one seems to be getting harder and harder and in most case extremely difficult.
Not finding a job doesn’t mean there aren’t any more jobs. What it means is that in most cases finding one still comes with a bit of luck-at least for those who believe in luck.
So you may have the right qualification for the job or the not-so right qualification. It doesn’t matter anymore.
Companies the world over have their own criteria for selecting who they want as their next employee. And their next employee may not be as qualified as you are.
But whether the next company employee is less qualified than you are, if they are hired, it might be that they possess the qualities that are needed.
Forget what you read
Forget about what you’ve just read in the ad that pointed out the number of ‘must haves‘ you need to be qualified for an open position.
The crietria for selecting a candidate for a particular job position boils down to a few identifiable traits in an individual.
Possessing multiple certifications as helpful as they might be in most cases, only touches the surface of what employers are looking for in a candidate.
So what quailities do you possess that will land you your next job?
Depending on the kind of job, the ideal candidate companies are looking for
must be motivated, goal-oriented,is trustworthy and reliable and has a strong work ethics. In addition the candidate must also
possess great communications skills.
Anything less will get you going from one office to another in search of a job.
And if you possess these qualities and you still don’t get employed?
” I was qualified for the position, but I got rejected.” This might be you crying out your disappointment over an employment rejection. It happens and it can happen.
Relax, you are not alone as even the most qualified candidates get rejected. A Forbes article outlines the reasons why even over-qualified candidates get rejected.
If being rejected will bother you,then get past it and channel your expertise in other directions. You have more ways to showcase your experiences without even bothering to get that dream job.
And if you know your ‘game’ so well, then you can also put them into content form and earn from it.
Show case your expertise elsewhere
When you are fed up of piling up rejections from would-be employers, there’s only one thing to do; find a useful way to employ your expertise.
If employers have a hard time employing you, then get the whole world to employ you!
Showcase your expertise digitally through content writing. This can be your next employer that could earn you more for writing a single article,
than the average paycheck you were hoping to earn at the end of the month.
If you have a passion for writing, you can turn this passion into an income opportunity.
What opportunities are out there?
There are companies and businesses out there that have decent advertising budgets. This is money set aside for the sole purpose of promoting products and getting sales.
In today’s digital world, these same companies and businesses are using content writers. The shift from the more traditional advertising method
to content writing as a way of promoting products is garnering so much attention that according to one statistics, about 90% of businesses are already using content marketing as a leads capture strategy.
