The curse of networking
Do you know what your family and friends do for a living? What about your neighbours? Just think how many people you could be reaching if every person gave you a new contact or introduced you to their colleague. This is an important step in a search for a job! Being out there, meeting new people from the industry you want to work in, participating in networking events, there are so many options to network, that you have no excuse to not do it. You never know who, when and where you can meet. They can be your next employer or a person who will introduce you to someone that could be helpful. But remember, networking is a two-way street, so be ready to help somebody in their search. Don’t know where to start?

What was your last trip?
When the company is looking for a new employee, the experience and the competencies are playing the crucial role in being selected for the meeting. During the first meeting, it is very important to showcase your talent and experience, but it is as important to show your personality. Usually, candidates already try to do that by listing their hobbies and extra curiculum activities. Great, do that, but be honest. If you write that you love reading books, be ready to answer about the last book you read, or what trip was your last, if you are like travelling. Sounds basic? Unfortunately, it happens more often than you think 😊. #tipoftheday #pspartner #lookingforajob #beyourself #beready #CV #hobbies
