Dar es Salaam. If you are one of those young people who have been searching for job opportunities for a long time without success, you still have every reason to smile and there is still hope to get the job of your dreams.
You need to be aware of some of the things you need to consider when applying for a job in order to be successfully interviewed and then get the job you dream of.
Among these are the avoidance of certain mistakes, including disregard for instructions, which have been repeated by many applicants and deprived of job opportunities.
tzjobconnection brings you the most frequent mistakes and in applying for a job that if you avoid it you can get the job you are looking for:
Improper use of email
Due to the growth of technology, many employers use the Internet to advertise vacancies and require applicants to submit their applications by email.
However, some applicants fail to take into account the basics when submitting applications in this way, which makes them seem unaware.
Some of them fail to organize the required information correctly such as putting in the required attachments, letter introduction, spelling and spelling errors and using informal language.
Buzwagi Gold Mine Human Resources Officer Emmanuel Venus says before applying for a job, one should know the proper use of email in order to put oneself in a better position to enter the race for employment.
“One of the things we look at is the ability to make good use of email. If a person cannot use email, how will he be able to run an office when he is given a job, ”says Venus.
Not knowing the company and the position you are applying for
This is the first mistake that bothers many applicants because in a job application a person submits information without knowing the details of the job and the company he is applying for or the position he wants in the company.
This problem often causes people to send information that does not match the positions advertised by employers.
For example a telecommunications company may send job vacancies that require lawyers or marketing officers. An applicant with a communications profession submits an application when he or she has no knowledge of the advertised jobs.
This person must have his or her application set aside, perhaps with additional skills that will enable him or her to fulfill the responsibilities assigned to him or her. Make sure the job you are applying is commensurate with the skills you have to avoid the hassle of applying for a job.
Lack of concentration
One of the most important things to consider when applying for and applying for a job at a particular company is to be careful about submitting your information correctly.
This means that when someone submits a number of erroneous applications it shows the employer that the applicant’s level of attention is low so it could be a reason to miss out on the position you are applying for.
Seriousness involves making minor mistakes that could cost you your skills in the employer. These errors include incorrect use of uppercase and lowercase letters, incorrect spelling of the words as required and accurate spacing of information.
The CEO of Angle Informatics Limited, Mkono Shadrack, said many of the errors that cause a person to fail to be called for an interview (minor) are minor, so the actors want to strive to focus on fluency in submitting applications.
“Often the reason why a person is not called for an interview is a very small mistake. Applicants are careful to go through the selection process, ”said Shadrack.
Failure to follow the instructions provided
Instructions are one of the most important factors that can give you the ability to enter the competition.
Many applicants lack the qualifications to be selected for an interview because of a failure to follow the instructions given on how to submit or an acceptable model to submit a job application to the company concerned.
“Applicants should be careful when submitting applications. If we see that you are not paying attention to something small, we cannot continue to deal with your prayers while we have many requests to go through, ”says Venus.
Post more information on application and resume (CV)
According to The Balance Carriers website , the accumulation of too much nonsense information on job application letters and resumes can lead to job losses.
It is not the quantity of words or details that impresses an employer but your ability to express yourself briefly and set the basics needed, it is your ability to penetrate work.
The employer expects to hear more about what the applicant can do for the company in order to grow and achieve the set goals. It also expects you to see that the information you have submitted is based on the skills you have and not the personal information of the job applicant.
However, young people still have a good chance of correcting such mistakes by learning and gaining more knowledge from the Internet or by experienced people on how to avoid minor mistakes when applying for a job.
They are also reminded to check job application information before sending it, if necessary to give it to friends or relatives through to see if it is correct. Care and planning on how to plan your job application according to the instructions given are important steps to make you successful in the next steps of getting a job.
In tomorrow’s article we will cover in detail the factors that hinder job seekers, especially young people, when they are in interviews and techniques that will help them to break into employment.
