First Steps to Getting a New Job

Whether you are just beginning your career or an experienced one looking for a new challenge, the first step when looking for a job is to identify the elements that are important to you.

First steps of getting a new job


In the first steps of getting a new job, we advise you to remember these important tips when applying for a job: Select the words that best describe your skills and abilities, highlight your professional or academic achievements and add statistics or numbers that support your story such as “3 years of experience in web design” , or “In my last position, I cut annual costs by 25%.” 

Prepare an offer for each job, and review the job description carefully to ensure you meet all requirements.


You will be ready to convince potential employers that you are the right candidate for the job. Taking these first steps will point you on the right path and help you identify the jobs that best match your skills.

1. Determine your interests and which fields or companies suit you

What are the five requirements you would like the job to include? Do you like helping others learn? Or do you like to work in the field of numbers? Or perhaps you would prefer a position that offers flexible working hours? To get to know yourself better, ask your friends, family, and colleagues what distinguishes you and your greatest strengths.

Personality tests can also help you find out what traits you have. The most popular of these is the MTBI, but many other options are available online as well. 

After knowing the specifications of your dream job, we move on to the skills identification stage.

2. Start by writing down your qualifications, academic achievements and “technical skills”

Anything that can be demonstrated and measurable, such as a diploma in accounting, years of experience in web design, or a degree in nursing.

Next, list other traits that could benefit the company, other than your work experience or qualifications, such as leadership skills, teamwork, and communication skills that describe how you interact with others.

These features are known as “soft skills” and they are gaining increasing importance today in various fields and therefore they must be highlighted when applying for a job.


3. Choose from your main skills

Think about the challenges and accomplishments you've experienced in the past, and then identify the skills that were most helpful in helping you through these situations.

After identifying these skills, start thinking about how you can convince potential employers that you are a good fit for the job. You can achieve this with a resume and cover letter attached to it, or it may happen naturally during a job interview.

While a request like “Tell me about yourself” may seem generic and inaccurate, focus on what the employer is actually asking for: useful information about your professional experience, and specifically, how you can handle that job and achieve the best results.

Rather than simply presenting facts and information about you, we recommend that you tell your past experiences as a story.

4. Your success stories

And don't forget that successful stories are those that follow a clear structure that captures the interest of readers or listeners. Highlight your most important professional achievements.

And if your career is still in its infancy, feel free to tell general success stories from your life with a focus on those that highlight the right traits and skills for the job.

For example, you could talk about a personal achievement at university or volunteer work that demonstrates your communication or problem-solving skills.

Remember to highlight why you want this job and show how excited you are to work for the company.
