Half baked stories and myths are dangerous things for you, if you are a job seeker. Myths and fairy tells are interesting, but believing in such parables can prove to be quite unflattering in real life.
As tech job seekers, myths should not be believed in and I’ll as far as to say, that they should be scorned upon. So, here’s presenting busting the four biggest for a job seeker:-
I don’t have the skills, hence I’m unsuitable
This is the biggest myth that tech job seekers have. They think since they do not have the necessary skills, they will not fit the bill and will be rejected right on. But, the fact of the matter is, that there is always possibility of getting trained while you are on your job. There are always other job profiles where you could fit in.
What if I have changed jobs frequently?
Now, if this is what you have in mind and a cause of your major worry, then relax. You can always point out a valid reason for your leaving the company in your resume. Remember, when you are on the job, what matters ultimately is your working skills and nothing else.
If the company does not have online job posting, it’s not hiring
This is another popular myth among-st job seekers. It can be possible that the job is not on the online portal of the company, but it still is there. Such jobs are called invisible jobs. What one can do in such situations is develop some kind of social network in order to get first hand access to such hidden jobs.
If I’m chosen, I can bid my salary high
Now, if you are chosen, well and good, but at the same time you should be aware, getting chosen doesn’t mean you can bid salary beyond general line of expectation. Acting like this casts a bad impression and this line of action can surely backfire.
Hence, we found that myths or misconception are not good to dwell upon if you are the job seeker. They can hinder your job perspective.
