Here are some hints and suggestions

by maxwell edison In reply to Employers looking for qua ...

1. Employers are not "looking" for anybody. It's up to you to find the employer, not the other way around. If you wait for some employer to find you, be prepared to spend your life waiting.

2. If you are, as you say, "motivated and dedicated towards helping a company achieve its corporate goals", then you would be able to specifically articulate what those goals might be. Making such a general statement is rather meaningless.

3. Take a look at the following Web site. This guy has some great ideas about how to market yourself.

Spending a few bucks on some materials that might spark some creative ideas would certainly be a worthwhile investment. But he also has some good articles and other reading recommendations about marketing yourself.

4. Combine your IT skills and enthusiasm with another area of interest. For almost all businesses, Information Technology is a means to an end, not the end itself. And if you can talk "their business" with them, and show them how you can apply your IT skills to help their specific needs and goals, then you'll have your choice of jobs.

5. Like I said, don't wait for them to find you. You have to find them. And don't do it through the want-ads either. A company may be "looking for you", but they don't even know it.

Good luck.
