!!! Role-Play: Requires preparation!
On November 1, 2016, members of the English speaking club ICAN will talk about how to get a rewarding job, a job that would give us both satisfaction and decent remuneration.
Landing your dream job may be not easy, if you are ambitious and want to work for a high-profile company, where the competition is tough. However, it is much less impossible than you might think it is.
Look at the happy people who are employed by such companies and organisations. Are they really better than you? Maybe, yes. Then ask yourself what is missing from your education, professional and communication skills that prevents you from competing with them. However, you might feel that you are ready for a high-profile job. Then, ask yourself why you have not tried to get it. Why are you still wasting your time doing a low-paid tedious work and not getting due respect and appreciation?
Getting a dream job can be very hard, so you should be sure that you are hunting for the right one. Here are two issues to consider:
1. Is that job really good for you? Does it match your physical abilities, way of thinking and your overall life goals and values?
2. Are you really fit for that job? Have you got appropriate education and training? How about your personal qualities?
If you feel that you can honestly reply "yes" to all these questions, you can start your dream job hunt.
Step 1. Finding a vacancy in the right company.
Step 2. Upgrading your qualifications to meet the requirements
Step 3. Applying for the vacancy
Step 4. Sitting a job Interview
To better understand how the employment process goes and how to prepare your application pakage, we will run a role-play.
