Submitted by rashmijsr on Thu, 2007-08-30 12:44

1.Know the expertise of the company you are applying for the job

2.If you have expertise in Java don't apply in a company which works only in PHP as it makes no sense.

3.Just don't post resume to any email id which you get hold of from websites. It may so happen that you mail the wrong person and he may mark that as junk.

4.Please find out appropriate email id's of HR for mailing. They are the persons involved in to recruitment.

5.Many company websites have got on line chatting system in the website. That is just a way to make communication better with the budding clients and to get business. Its not a place to talk about vacancy and sending resumes. Many candidates do that and its leaves a negative image.

6.Don't send resumes to the same employer again and again everyday so that at last he may mail you. If you mail and are not getting any response it just means you are not fitting in any job profile.

7.Never expect that all employers will answer your mail. If you have mailed a particular employer once or twice or thrice don't mail him again. If he is interested he will surely call you.

8.And please don't casually call on any phone numbers which you get hold of on line and ask if there is any vacancy in the company for testers or software professionals. It really irritates. If you come to know there is vacancy just drop a mail.

9.Maintain some courtesy while posting resumes to employers. I have seen candidates not even giving any salutation at the start or at the bottom. This gives a negative image and it may so happen that the HR may not view your attached resume.

10. Don't mail the company that “I am mailing this resume in response to the advertisement “ which the company never placed. I have seen candidates doing this and this is disgusting.

11. I have seen candidates mailing the resume and then calling the HR department that i have mailed the resume please go through it. Don't do this. They must have received the mail and it will not be viewed on your instructions.

12. Please maintain some manners while talking to an employer if he responds to your resume by calling you.

13. Learn some soft skills it will speak in your resume

14. Don't mail an employer that i have posted resume on the following link, please check it for details.

15. Be quick to respond to mails. No one likes delays. You may lose the opportunity.
