What separates the people who get a job quickly from those that keep finding themselves out of work? It’s not just luck, it’s a thing called persistence.
Persistence is the quality that makes people think you are serious about getting a job there. It makes them know that you will do whatever it takes to get there.
When you want something, how bad do you want it? Do you just want the job to get by or do you have a burning desire to do that kind of work? This burning desire is what has to come across to an employer. Whatever it takes, 2 phone calls, or 20 phone calls, you have to keep persistent until you get a break to work there.
As a result, keeping contacts is very important. It allows you to be persistent. One handy tip is to always see the employer face to face. Why? Because you can get a business card off them and these business cards are very valuable to keep arms length with your prospective employer. You can simply pull the business card out of your wallet when you feel the need to make a follow up call or visit. And you never forget the phone number or address as it is written on the card.
Building up contacts doesn’t happen overnight. You must put some effort in pounding the pavement to enquire and get those business cards initially. Make face contact so they remember you and then call back when required.
Remember, success comes hand in hand with a never give up attitude.
