Everything has a beginning point so has your career if you’re a fresh graduate and do not have any experience in your industry. Many young professionals hesitate while applying for a job because of lack of experience and less knowledge about the practical job requirements.
This attitude is quite lethal because you’ll have to start someday, then why not today?
If you see an ad for a job which is related to your field and you’re interested in that, go to its description immediately. Read the description and ask yourself if you could do it if you were given a chance? If the answer is yes, then apply for the job with full confidence and prove yourself in the industry.
With that being said, here are the steps by which you can get a job which you just saw.
The “inexperienced” part should not get over your nerves and portraying yourself as a suitable and competent candidate will get you the job. Being relaxed and prepared mentally is more important than anything else because this mental preparation reflects in your body language and the way of impressing your recruiter. Keep in mind that you’re not alone in this “inexperienced” phase and hundreds of candidates will be thinking the same.
Since you’re inexperienced with a little or no experience of the industry, you need to prepare better than the others. Einstein once said, “you need you learn the rules of the game and then you have to play better than the others.” Print out the job description and read each and every point with deep concern so that you could satisfy the recruiter easily.
CV is like that loyal friend which speaks for you in your absence. Put the things which you have done so far in your academic life and build a CV that sells you well. All those experiences and learning were done for this day. Put your previous internships on the CV or at least that research work you have done during your graduation. Construct a customized CV for a particular job which could represent you well.
What’s so special in you? Why should a company hire an inexperienced candidate for a job? What’s in you which others lack? These are the questions which you need to answer through your behavior and dedicational behavior for your work. An employer does not need just a man who says “at your service sir”. The company always needs people which could take the business ahead with enthusiasm and zeal.
A cover letter is just like an ease for the recruiter to pick up your job application without putting too much effort into thinking. A well-organized cover letter is of great importance. Write a cover letter and apply for the job.
