Today there are lots of news about how to get work in this economic depression. I wanted to list essential advice on how to employ yourself today!
- Create a new CV or update to the old CV some certain job application, then show your CV to someone professional to get feedback, example a teacher. Do not ask feedback from your relatives or friends, because they cannot give direct feedback.
- Think carefully what information you want to give in your application. Give some important facts about yourself because someone should get interested in you!
- Be open-minded to search jobs from various websites and also use social media: Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.
Example case: Eetu
Eetu was unemployed for a while and searched new job. He knew the realities about current labour market. What Eetu did? He published a own website as a portfolio and CV and also filmed own video where he introduced himself. He also used social media very much.
