Not sure how to start looking for a job? Let us help you with some ideas:
First of all, you will need a good CV (resume). If you’re uncertain, you can always download a template from the internet––fill it in and you’re done (by the way, we have uploaded one too on our new website). State your name, date of birth, educational qualifications, the languages you speak, your work experience (if any) and your contact details. Watch out to be true to fact and accurate.
– Don’t attach photos of yourself partying in revealing clothes
– Don’t bloat your CV with irrelevant topics
– Do list your skills and competencies
– Be to the point
Now that you’ve got your CV ready, you can go and search for a job. You may want to upload it to profession.hu, an online job portal, where both job seekers and employers come together in search of a match and where their agents too can find you.
Consider making a profile on LinkedIn. Companies increasingly advertise and look for potential workforce there. You may wish to share your career successes to increase your chances of being hired.
You may also want to join various job seeker groups on Facebook or follow job advertising pages such as Szárnyas fejvadász, where a lot of job advertisements appear.
Sooner or later you will be invited to go for a job interview.
– Don’t just wear jeans and a T-shirt: dress up for the occasion
– Don’t be late: leave for the interview some 15 minutes earlier than you think is enough
– Don’t use familiar language with everybody right away
– Don’t be pushy
– Don’t talk about your private life
– Don’t talk about salary until the interviewer brings up the subject
If you are hired for a job, it is very important that you read the contract you are offered carefully.
