Most job seekers do not have specific knowledge, skills and ability other than their certificates (BSc, HND, Masters, etc) which limit their chances when competing for jobs against other applicants who have better equipped themselves.
There’s no difference between not applying for a job and applying for a job one isn’t qualified for, because in both cases you won’t get it. Before applying for any job, take a minute and ask yourself these few questions:
- Who do the firm really need (male or female and the age bracket)?
- What are the necessary knowledge, skills and ability needed to do the job?
- Do I have the physical and mental requirements to cope with the job?
- What special knowledge, skills do I possess, and does it fit into what the firm needs?
- Does my curriculum vitae really represents or show that I have the knowledge, skills and ability to do the job?
Your sincere answers to these questions will help you a great deal not to apply for every job and pay attention to the information on your CV, for instance someone will apply as an administrative officer in a construction firm, but in the cv his or her work experience says former cook in a fast-food, you won’t need anyone to tell you that you are so far from the job. Our aim is not just to help applicants get jobs, but guide them to have decent CV and apply for jobs in the area they have comparative advantage based on their qualifications, knowledge, skills and ability.
