How to get into corporate jobs in India after graduation?

Posted last July 18, 2016, 12:09 am in Jobs report article

Corporations are not so forthcoming when it comes to fresh graduates looking for a job. But no need to feel disheartened. As it is said, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So buckle your seat belt and get ready. Keep these points in mind and life will be a whole lot easy. 

Despite the economic growth India is witnessing, getting a corporate job just after graduation is still a difficult task to accomplish.  Most of the graduates are not job ready. 68 percent companies agree that fresh graduate students are not industry ready. So they generally are reluctant to hire freshers. Feeling demotivated? Well you should not. By following the below mentioned tips, you can turn the tide in your favor.

Introspection

 

There are so many jobs in india. They may even be relevant to your field of study. But they may not align with your life goals or skill set. Do a thorough introspection and find out what kind of job interests you. For example if you are someone who loves travelling, then perhaps a job that comes with a lot of traveling involved is better suited for you. If you are interested in computer programming, then a job that requires coding skills will be a good choice.

Prepare a relevant CV

 

Curriculum vitae (CV) or resume is the first impression an employer has about you. You need to make sure you give a killer impression. Advice is to get your resume prepared by a professional. There are many companies who will help you prepare a stellar resume which will give u an edge in job searching. And also CV or resume must be relevant to the industry you are applying to. For example if you are applying for a software job, your CV should list your skills in coding in various languages.

Developing soft skills

 

The most important step is developing your soft skills. Despite being dedicated and motivated, you may still lose out on a job if you have poor soft skills. So try and develop your soft skills, as a globalised world needs people with very good communication skills. 

Be creative. Be a smart worker

 

Gone are the days of hard work. No one wants employees who work very hard but don’t have anything to show for it. Big corporations and startups need creative and smart workers who can think on their feet and can wear many hats. Learning on the job is also a very sought after skill these days.

Networking

 

Networking is a very important step in getting a corporate job. Try to get in touch with the alumni of your college or with friends and relatives who work where you want to. They can help you get a recommendation. Also you will get to know what to expect while you are working for the company. Recommendations from a known source can get you an interview which you can turn into a successful attempt. So keep networking.
