9 top tips to new, fresh and old job seekers.


Do not think at any time that it is only fresh graduates looking for jobs. People who have jobs have different reasons why they are seeking jobs again. The competition is tighter than ever but today we want to give tips that can easily cut across all the groups of job seekers.

For those of you old enough in the job searching market, you can use a refresher. What do you do in your job? How do you carry it out? If you get a job today, what are the tricks? The following attributes will help you succeed:

You want good pay, you learn to negotiate well.


There is a sense of accomplishment with the getting of the first job. Often, it implies an end of many months, sometimes years, of searching for employment after graduation from college or university. By the time one gets invited for an interview, there will have been quite a number of job applications and follow ups.

With that in mind, and when faced with the task of negotiating the salary, it is easy to end up making wrong and miscalculated decisions. Many have accepted salaries beneath their worth, or at least the value of the job they are being recruited for. Generally, fresh job seekers tread carefully when it comes to asking for better salaries.
