Getting the job you want after you just graduated is more an exception than a rule these days. Companies often get hundreds of applicants for one position, competition is higher than ever and making it to the final cut is harder than it seems.
So how can you make yourself really stand out from the crowd and get the job you want?
Vincent Karremans is the man that knows how to get you the job you want. He founded Magnet.me, a platform that lets you seek all relevant job opportunities in an effective and easy way. It allows you to express interest in a certain company or position with a few clicks. The best is, companies can do the same to prospective employees. When there is a match, companies can send you a message, upcoming events, and vacancies. It is basically a mixture of Linkedin and Tinder.
We’re happy to announce that he’ll be sharing all the secrets to landing a job you want at our Career Girl Academy! So here’s what you’ll learn from him:
How to apply for jobs as a millennial in 2017:
Most of us still do it the old-fashioned way with a CV and cover letter, but is that still the way to go? If yes, what are the do’s and don’ts? Should social media and attending events and networking do most of the talking for us? How do you make yourself stand out from the crowd before they have even met you?
What are companies looking for:
We all know the general skills that companies are looking in a candidate: proactive, team player, punctual etc. but since these are skills that only show once you get the job, what are companies really looking for during an interview?
How to handle the follow-up:
You have applied for the job, got the interview so what’s next? A lot of people are not really sure whether or when to follow up and even if you do, how to stand out in that process as well?
Vincent will explain how to really stand out and leave an unforgettable impression using your personality when following up, so the company remembers you and thinks you’re a good candidate. This is the stuff you won’t learn from a quick Google search, it’s the insider information that will take your application from bland to grand and really help you nail it!
