Job preparation is not just a task or a process that you need to do before getting a job. Job preparation is actually a ‘set of tasks’ you have to do in order to get closer to your dream job. Students cannot expect to do just one thing out of all and think they will land a job!
Complete job preparation includes all these activities –
- Establishing your skillset and making yourself employable.
- Creating a list of job profiles and companies that you are suitable for.
- Making an impressive resume.
- Getting ready to tackle the personal interview.
- Improving your job profile by undertaking certifications.
You will have to make sure to tick off all these activities in your job preparation and the first step in that in signing up for the AMCAT.
Here is how AMCAT will help you kickstart your preparation and assist in all the activities in your job preparation.
Task 1 – Establishing your skillset and making yourself employable
Companies seek students who are employable and who do not have to be excessively trained. The most beneficial part of your job preparation will be in making yourself employable by showcasing your skillset. This will help you in the long term and give you rewards!
The way to go around this is by signing up for AMCAT and thus it is the first step in your job preparation.
The AMCAT score will help you distinguish yourself amongst your peers and help the recruiters assess your skills objectively. By doing comprehensive AMCAT preparation you can get a high score which will help the recruiters shortlist you easily.
Task 2 – Creating a list of job profiles and companies that you are suitable for
Job preparation helps you get prepared for getting your job in a systematic fashion. The key is to not get lost in the world of job portals! Even in this AMCAT will be able to help you as you can get jobs through AMCAT. The job portal on AMCAT website has hundreds of jobs suitable for all streams.
Your job as a part of job preparation is to list out which job profiles are suitable for your job skills. AMCAT will help you even in that task as you will get a detailed feedback report with your score. It will tell you which job profiles are suitable for you and for which jobs you will have to work harder.
Task 3 – Making an impressive resume
Now that you are prepared with a list of jobs you want and have an AMCAT score that will help you get shortlisted for them, you will need a resume to get your foot in the door. Recruiters receive around 200 resumes for every job listing and you will have to ensure your resume looks fantastic in order to make the recruiter shortlist it.
AMCAT has a tool called Resume Buddy that will help you create a resume within a few minutes. This will help your job preparation as you don’t have to waste time finding resume formats or how to write it. The Resume Buddy has over 25 resume formats, keywords, and phrases that will make your resume stand out!
Task 4 – Getting ready to tackle the personal interview
Once your resume is ready and you have taken the AMCAT test, you are almost done with your job preparation but an important task is still left – personal interview. The personal interview is a challenge for most students because you are not equipped with interview skills in college.
AMCAT will help you even in this phase of job preparation with the tool called Mock AI. This unique tool is one of the first in India and will help you prepare for a mock interview. It will give you insights on your interview skills like communication, body language, and voice modulation. Once you do this, you will be ready to attend an interview any day!
Task 5 – Improving your job profile by undertaking certifications
You should start getting job interviews and converting them into offers by the above step in your job preparation. However, as the competition is getting stronger by the day and everybody is competing for the same jobs you need to increase your standard.
Sign up for the AMCAT certifications in English and other technical certifications. These certifications are industry-recognized and will help you showcase your talent in a particular skill set.
As you can see, AMCAT is your stepping stone to success. Once you start your job preparation by registering for AMCAT, you will find yourself surrounded by helpful resources that will get you closer to your first job after graduation.
