Not focusing on the employer

The biggest mistake job seeker make is that focusing too much on finding jobs and less focus on employers. In addition to job search spend some time researching about the employer too. Talk to your friends, family members, and relatives about their workplaces, the work culture, company policies, etc. Go through company reviews to get a better picture about the company.

Not being selective

Most of the job seekers apply thousands of jobs through job boards. Apply ten suitable jobs that fit your current job role and experience. Read job description carefully, assess that you are over qualified or under qualified for the job. Add relevant keywords in your resume to get shortlisted in the primary search. Don’t ignore social media platforms like twitter, facebook and LinkedIn.
