These 6 Tips Will Help You Get An Ideal Job In 2018 by nairametrics: 4:58pm On Nov 23, 2017
Has 2017 been hard on you? You get any luck on the job font yet? What could be the problem? Well, no one can say for sure that you haven’t gotten a job because of something you did or didn’t do. This is why we should be careful about our dos and don’ts in preparation for the coming year. We need to ensure that we’ve done everything humanly possible on our part to get a great job

First let’s review our resume
A few people have been using the same resume they typed about 3 years ago for all the jobs they’ve been applying for. You need to keep your resume updated keeping up with the constantly changing economic world. Sit down and look at your resume; strike out what needs to be stricken out and add what needs to be added.

Go over your skills; soft and hard skills
Each employer or recruiter has a set of skills they require for their job postings. You need to keep up with the flow. Brush your skills up and pick new skills if necessary depending on what employers need. Go over the skills you can offer an employer. Make a list of it so you know which jobs to apply for.

Create a significant online presence
It’s no news that the world has gone digital. Most recruiters go out of their way to search for their potential employee online. This is why you need to have a significant online presence. Set your Facebook and other social media pages that may contain inappropriate material or too much info about you to private. Also sign up for LinkedIn and create a detailed profile.

Don’t give up


It’s tiring submitting your CV/resume from place to place, getting your hopes up, only to have it crash down again. The experience is really daunting. However, don’t give up! Quitting is for losers. Keep going. Keep hanging on. Something will surely turn up soon.

Know what you want and go for it
It is common practice for people to apply for ‘any’ job out of desperation to get a job. Just because you need to pay bills, don’t lose sight of your career goals. Don’t just apply anywhere. Apply for jobs that tally with your skills, qualifications and goals.

Don’t forget networking;
Learn to be flexible on your job search. Job postings don’t always have to be online, you could hear about a great opportunity from relatives or other people within your network circle. Someone might even recommend you for a job opening at the company where they work or somewhere else. The truth is that with the way Nigeria is headed, it will be so much better if you can get someone on the inside of the company you’re applying at. Having someone on the insider increases your chances of getting the job. This Christmas season might be a great opportunity to network.

When these tips do work for you, as they will, don’t forget that you have a choice in this matter. Just because you’re being offered a job doesn’t mean you should jump on it. Take time to go through the offer and ensure that it suits all your needs both career wise, physically and financially. Get started now and who knows? You might be starting 2018 with a new job.

This high emphasis on getting a job shouldn't be anyone's plan for the new year. What is Seun Osewa's "job"? What is Linda Ikeji's 'job"? What is Ebuka's job

If you don't find someone to employ you, does it mean that you can't find a legitimate way to feed yourself and become a self-sustaining human being? Does it mean that you would be a beggar who can't earn a living? Think about it:: are you so valuable that any organisation you're working for can't survive without you? Of course the answer is no, because if you were that valuable, you would use that skill you possess to make a living for yourself. Come on.

I don't like the fact that most educated Nigerians would be destitutes if they don't have a job in the conventional sense. What exactly does a job mean if not a source of livelihood? Learn a skill. Deliver a service. Find a problem to solve. Learn how to make money one way or the other by yourself if it comes down to it.

This mentality of looking for a safe salary every month is what you need to get rid of this new year.

Sorry if you feel offended. It's just my two cents.

1) Show your expertise's regularly on your social media handles

2) Not just on your own handles, but on groups in your field and forums like Nairaland.

3) Stand out from the crowd with your own website. Yes get a portfolio website that grows as you grow i your career. A portfolio website that will tell your story beyond what your CV can do added with a blog that comes with it, where you can further showcase your expertise.
