It’s truly amazing as how some people find the jobs immediately wherever they want and then some people who keep struggling to get even a casual job. More than luck, this mostly depends upon your strategy to search the jobs.
Finding jobs in Pakistan in 2015 and beyond is fast becoming an art. This art requires consistent discipline and painstaking effort to stand out above the crowd. You cannot just throw your CV at the companies and then expect call for interview.
There are various challenges to face and various obstacles to overcome. You need to first change yourself and be flexible and adaptable in order to find the job. Remember that if some company is looking for an employee, they need them for specific tasks.
So the applicants have to be specific too. These applicants should tailor and customize their CVs and cover letters according to the job description. They need to research about the company and its mission and target and then apply for the job.
Try to find out what problems that company is trying to resolve and then address those problems in your cover letter. Don’t make it lengthy and come to point immediately. Grab the attention in first line, otherwise recruiters would throw it away in bin.
For example, if you are applying for the role of software developer, then go to company’s website and see what sort of development they do and what services they offer to their client and what they promise to clients. Now you should promise the same thing in your cover letter to the company.
So you are basically aligning yourself with the goals of company and that is one thing which companies cannot afford to ignore as that is such a rare find.
