Three Actionable Ways on How to Find an Office Job

You have finally graduated and are happy that your studies are over, but now you need to find a job.

Or maybe you have been working for yourself and haven’t found much success, so now you want to work in a corporate office.

Perhaps your current office job is not a good fit, but you don’t know how to find an office job with another company.

Whatever your reasons may be, below I’ll give you three practical and actionable ways that will help you find an office job to your satisfaction.

1) Be prepared for the interview

There are common questions that are asked at interviews.

Some include: Why do you want to work here? What do you know about our company? What is your greatest strength/weakness?

Do some research and understand the job position well to know what to expect.

Quick tip: You can always contact the hiring corporation and inquire about the company. Or you can contact an employee of the company itself and ask for help. You’ll find most of them will be willing to answer general questions.

Also try to learn about the work culture and know what to wear to the interview. Not all companies expect candidates to wear a business suit or blazer.

2) Write a good an excellent resume

Resumes are rarely read word for word. They are mostly skimmed through, so keep this in mind when writing yours. You can highlight the important features of your profile by putting them in blocks or by underlining each one. You should also put the important information at the top.

Secondly, ask someone, preferably somebody who is associated with writing or publishing, to proofread your resume. You will be surprised at how many mistakes you made.

If you read blog posts on how to find an office job you will find them suggesting you alter your resume to coincide with the different types of jobs you apply for. Every company is unique in its own way, so their likes and dislikes will not be the same. Surf through each company’s website to gain a fair understanding of what each prefers, and then write your resume accordingly.

Though I won’t say this is imperative, it can surely help if you are willing.

Yes, it is extra work, but job hunting is a job in itself.

3) Seek out big companies

When applying for jobs, try to apply with big companies only. Try this approach first before applying with smaller companies.

Reputable corporations are held in high regard for justifiable reasons. The work environment is typically pleasurable, your colleagues often excel in their specific positions, and chances are you will work in a facility with additional amenities, such as a swimming pool, a café, a fitness center, etc.

Additionally, bigger companies pay you well. Unlike smaller companies or startups, bigger corporations have the budget to spend.

Lastly, I would suggest you seek out employment agencies in your area and register with one to find a job. These businesses deal with companies and candidates day in and day out, so their expertise aids in your job hunting efforts.
