We all struggle to find the right jobs. We try and then try again, approach people randomly, exhaust our existing offline network and get into an almost give-up situation. We start blaming the pandemic situation and finding reasons for not getting the right roles.
Below are the steps that you can follow and see the difference
On First and Second Day:
Make the list of KRAs you want to assign to yourself in your next role. The roles you aspire for need to be crystal clear in your mind when you start this.
On Third Day:
Identify the Target Organizations as per your Location Preference. Make a list of approx. 25 Organisations. Check their company pages and make sure they are hiring currently.
From 4th Till 6th Day:
Work on your resume keeping in mind the Target KRAs, evaluate current KRAs, Identify the gaps, give solid reasons for fitting into the target KRAs and then work on the resume.
Doing Gap Analysis is very important while working on the resume. Where you are today and where you want to be, have a few KRAs you haven’t done to date. Make sure you fill those gaps through correct statements on your resume,
At the end of the first week, you will visualize what you are strong at, what you need to learn, and the people reviewing your resume.
