5 Helpful Insights to Bagging that IT Dream Job
Tuesday, April 17, 2018

The world of information technology has essentially over shadowed all other industries around the world. Facebook now has more than half the world population on its active users list; Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos keeps toppling Bill Gates as the richest man in the world from time to time riding on the rising revenues of his company; and the IT industry is expected to remain the largest employer in the world all the way up to 2024.
These facts are no less than amazing news for information technology professionals and graduates looking to land that dream job they’ve strived so hard for. However, there are a few extra pieces required in order to build the perfect portfolio to pitch in front of an employer.

1. Do Your Research

One of the most important pieces of advice that work almost universally is to do the relevant research. Read all about the company that you’re applying to, what it does, how it functions and what are employee feedbacks. Google frequently asked interview questions and prepare the most appropriate answers accordingly. Don’t just limit your search to digital sources only however. Find people who might work in that organization or those that might have applied to a position in it and factor in their comments to build a stronger pitch. This will allow you to build a sound cache of knowledge about the operations of the company allowing you to handle your assessments better.

2. Highlight Mutual Benefits

IT is important to not keep bragging about yourself and your skills and talents and achievements and the amount of benefits that you can gain from the job that you’re applying for. The employer is also equally interested in knowing what benefit they might gain from hiring you because at the= end of the day, they are an equally important party in the transaction too.

3. Be Up to Speed on the Latest Happenings

IT is an ever evolving field with new platforms, bugs and softwares cropping up every day. This means newer issues and functions to deal with. IT is therefore important to know all about them so that you are fully prepared if the evaluator brings up one of these things for you to look at.

4. Be Specific While Describing Your Skills

When applying, the first and foremost thing should be to read the job description very clearly and understand the responsibilities that you’ll have to perform and the necessary skills that you require to do them. This will allow you to give more relevant answers to questions in an interview giving an excellent impression on the employer that you know what you’re talking about.

5. Have Referrals Vouch for You

What you say about yourself is not even half as effective as what others say about you. This is why it is extremely important to have references on hold. Better still if you can have a colleague working in the same organization put in a good word of recommendation for you, things could be absolutely incredible.

The job market is extremely competitive because positions are limited. This means that you have to go an extra mile in order to bag that dream position you’ve always wanted to have.
