Your ‘Job Hunting Journey’

Organizations in the greater Bangor area are very interested in hiring NTI graduates for many reasons including the hands-on training students’ receive, licensure/certifications and technical proficiency.  But no matter how well trained and well positioned NTI graduates are, they, like all job seekers, have a better chance of success if they avoid these common JOB HUNTING mistakes.

NOT BEING PROACTIVE 

  • Target 5 to 10 prospective employers daily and submit applications, either online or in person. Build your profile and start checking out MyMaineJob daily for local career opportunities: mymainejob.com 

RELYING SOLELY ON THE INTERNET

FAILING TO FOLLOW UP

  • It is not enough to send a resume and pray the phone rings. A  2 or 3 day follow up call is a key way to let the employer know that YOU ARE INTERESTED!

APPEARING UNPROFESSIONAL

  • Translation: Don’t assume FACEBOOK privacy settings keep your youthful antics away from a curious employers scrutiny

NOT TAKING THE JOB INTERVIEW SERIOUSLY

  • Above all be PREPARED! Research the company, dress appropriately, and be prepared to answer tough interview questions such as “where do you see yourself in 3 years “ or “what are your weaknesses”.

Attending an Interview workshop will help you with overcoming these obstacles and prepare you for a successful Job Hunting Journey.
