Getting a job as a fresher is your biggest challenge, there are many opportunities out there, but you need to find one that suits you. Here we will discuss important tips and tricks to find a job as a fresher.

📖 There Are Only 5 Questions An Employer is Really Concerned About
These are the 5 essential questions employers absolutely need answer to —even if they never ask you these, directly. Anything you can do, during the interview, to help the employer find the answer to these 5 questions will help make you an outstanding candidate for the job:
  1. Why are you here? This means, “Why are you knocking on our door, rather than someone else’s door?. How much do you know about who we are, and what we do here?”
  2. What can you do for us? This means, “If we were hire you, will you help us with task and challenges we face here? What are your relevant skills,… tell us about yourself.”
  3. What kind of person are you? This means, “… Do you have the kind of personality that make it easy for people to work with you? and do you share the values that we have at this place? What is your greatest weakness?”
  4. What distinguishes you from other? This means “… Do you get more done in a day, or are you better at problem solving than others, do you have better work habit than others, do you show up earlier, stay later?…”
  5. Can we afford you? This means “If we decide we want you here, how much will it take to get you, and are we willing and able to pay that amount— governed, as we are, by our budget, and by our inability to pay you as much as the person who would be next above you?

What is the key to getting jobs with no experience? Luck certainly plays a part and personal connections can be hugely valuable, but what else can you do?
  1. Target realistic roles: Even without relevant experience, pursuing entry-level and junior roles may prove character-building and an excellent way to learn about the position.
  2. Send out speculative applications: Even if you lack relevant experience, by highlighting what you do have effectively, you can create a positive first impression.
  3. Emphasise the skills you do have: Soft skills such as communication, team working and attention to detail are transferable and are highly valued by all sorts of employers
  4. Look for internships and volunteering opportunities: Internships and volunteer work are excellent ways to gain first-hand experience of a job. Many small and medium-sized businesses may not advertise internships, so it’s worth sending a speculative CV to them.
  5. Search for jobs with no experience needed: Simply running an internet search for ‘jobs with no experience required’ will return hundreds of results from legitimate job sites
  6. Develop your networks: Employers are more likely to overlook a gap in your experience if you are recommended by someone they know and trust
