STEP#1 Things before applying for a job

Social Media is the best platform on which marketers find business, consumer, and the best place where Jobseekers land on suitable jobs.
1) Personal branding apart you from crowd. Personal branding on leading Social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) can be very useful. Always remember whenever you’re applying for any job, the employee and contractor of the company googles your name and checks whether you’re on leading Social Medias, is your profile up to date, do you have a strong network, and the main thing is what image you have created yourself on Social Medias.
So make sure that you Google yourself before you apply for any job to check what appears, and ask yourself whether you have created a positive image or its time to clean up your network.

Creating a good presence on these recommended sites is necessary. It increases the chance to get job and decreases the chance of spending time to find a job.

2. Facebook - Facebook is a Web Giant. Almost everything is possible on Facebook if you are smart enough. Facebook can even used to get Jobs. Marketplace is a Facebook application where list of Job, Services are posted daily and you can even sell your item like vehicles, home furniture, and other stuff.
3.Twitter - Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service utilizing instant messages. Twitter is an incredible tool if we use it with LinkedIn or a blog, and some good avatar of yourself, in that way you can get an opportunity to build relationships with people who likes enough to read your profile, without that no one will hire you just on basis of Twitter profile. If you have a huge number of followers and you just tweet “Is unemployed” or “ Is looking for a job” and you may receive few direct messages of people who can help you.
4. Craigslist - Craigslist is valuable place for getting Jobs. If you are sick of getting rejected, so you should try Craigslist because I have found huge amount of jobs, which do not require very high qualifications.
