As soon as your CV is ready, you start looking for companies you want to join. Once you find what’s right for you, you start applying for jobs and sending both your CV and the id message in the hope that your employer’s response will get you as soon as possible so you can save yourself the hassle of waiting and getting nervous.
But what after sending requests? What if your employer is late in responding to your request? Below, we offer you some steps you can do after applying for jobs.
Get ready for the job interview
Waiting is not an easy or easy process, but during this time you can prepare for a job interview and prepare for all the questions your employer may ask you to make sure you are interested in joining your company. You need to do the necessary research on the company to learn about its history, all its activities, achievements and field of work, with 20% of employers, according to a survey on “Employment Practices in the Middle East and North Africa”, indicating that poor job preparation is one of the most common mistakes among job seekers.
Ask about the status of your application
Employers rarely respond quickly to your job application, or let you know about their status and whether you are not suitable for their vacancy. Therefore, follow up on your request yourself by contacting your employer via email or phone. Find yourself out first and ask how long it may take your employer to contact you if your application is accepted, and ask if you will receive a no-response if you are not the ideal candidate for the job.
Constantly improve your CV
Applying for a job does not mean that you stop caring about your CV and working to improve it. In fact, you should continue to strengthen the strength of your CV even after you have a job. First, make sure that it is free of language and spelling errors and that it reflects all your professional successes and achievements over the years in your career. Use keywords that contribute to your resume’s appearance more in front of employers, and make sure your ID is an essential part of your success in finding a job.
