3 Quick Tips to apply online to get Right Job

I work as a Business Consultant with a recruitment firm. Working on different hiring assignments, I come across many candidate profiles. There are different methods that I, use for hiring and one of them is a Job Posting online on job portals. That is one of the most common ways of a candidate hiring. There are many online job portals available along with social media.,,, and LinkedIn are the most common ones to name. Even the website of the organizations has career page. However still many times candidates struggle to get a job at the right place, and we as recruiters face difficulty in finding the right candidate.

Below are few tips for candidates who want to apply online:

1) Updation of Profile: 

Keep your profile updated. Do not apply with a profile that is not updated. By, the updated profile I mean current designation, current company, contact number and email id. All of these should be updated.

2) Read: 

Just don't hit the apply option without reading. Read the job posting. First, important thing is to know what you are applying for. I mean if you are a software engineer, you can't apply for a general manager at a hotel. As a recruiter, I have encountered this and have no other option but to write a rejection mail. Next is the location. Ask yourself, am I ready to relocate? If the answer is yes, move to next step. Read the job description well and understand what employer is looking for. Read the roles and responsibility too. Understand the skill requirement. Find out what are the other requirements, that are required by the recruiter.       

3) Consider these Factors too:  


Read what experience recruiter is looking for. Below are two examples for you to consider:
Case 1: An employer posted a vacancy for a certain position. Candidate finds that it is matching your profile. You go through the job posting and find out that everything seems to fall into place but then finds out that experience required is five years but the candidate's total experience is four years. What should a candidate do? My advice is to go ahead and apply.


Many recruiters like me are specific when posting jobs. I mention the Salary range. However, some prefer not to disclose. In that case, you could apply and discuss it later with the employer. But if you are looking for Salary Hike as one of your main priorities than consider below while applying. Let us consider two examples again.
Case 1: An employer posted a vacancy where the salary range has been specified as 25,000 - 30,000 INR but, you want something between 32,000 - 35,000 INR. What will you do? Apply
An employer will not lose the good employee. If the candidate stands out in the interview, the employer will not let you go. 
Case 2: A candidate looking for salary hike. He is getting 40,000 INR. There could be many possible reasons for which a candidate may be looking for a salary hike and new job. But would he apply for job posting which offers the salary ranging between 25,000 to 30,000 INR?

I know that job hunting can really be a tiring and tough phase of one's life. But it is about your career and it is very important to choose wisely. Don't simply click to apply for the job.
