Job Chasing

I’ve written many times about my intention to make 2024 the best year yet. I’ve shared advice for physical health and mental health, getting your home how you want it, and saving money on bills, but what about chasing a dream job? The job market can be a jungle, and navigating it with just a polished résumé and a hopeful smile isn’t enough. You need a strategy, a game plan, a secret weapon (okay, maybe not a literal weapon, but you get the point!).

So, ditch the stress sweats and grab your metaphorical battle axe, because today we’re diving into the ultimate guide to boosting your job-hunting arsenal and turning “applicant” into “hired rockstar.”

How To Improve Your Chances Of Landing Any Job

If you are trying to get your hands on a particular job, there are certain things you can always do that are going to help you a lot, and it’s something that you should definitely make sure you are thinking about. The truth is that it’s possible to drastically increase your chances of landing the job you want, as long as you are aware of some of the things that are known to really help here. Let’s take a look now at some of the examples of how you can improve your chances of landing any job you might be going for.

Research The Role

This is something you should always do when you are trying to get your hands on a job, and it’s vital that you are doing all you can to do it right. The more you research a role, and the company behind it, the better you are going to be at putting yourself out there for it, and especially when it comes to the interview stage. That is your opportunity to show that you know what the role is about and what the company itself is about too, so this is something that you should really be aware of.

Get Trained

Training is always going to help you as well, and there are a couple of main ways in which you might want to approach this. You can go for training in skills that are specific to the role in question, which is more important in some areas of work than others, such as vocational ones. Or you can also get trained in general skills which are useful in most jobs. In the latter category you would find, for instance, that taking IT courses online can really help your chances of landing the job.

Present Yourself Well

This is specifically for when you are going in for interviews. The better you present yourself, the more this is going to help you to land a job that you are going for. The way you look really does make a difference, and it’s something that you are going to find really useful when it comes to trying to land a particular job. You’ll be more confident in the interview, and they are going to be more naturally impressed by you too, so it’s worth focusing on this as best as you can.

Get Your Resume Looked At

Your resume or CV is another thing that you need to work on if you want to boost your chances of employment. You need to make sure that it is well-written, well-presented, polished and that it generally looks the part. Of course, it also needs to say what you want it to say relevant to the job. So if you can achieve that, you should find that it’s going to make a huge difference to your chances of getting the job you want.


So there you have it, folks! Your personalized guide to transforming your job search from “meh” to “magnificent.” Remember, landing your dream job isn’t about luck or chance; it’s about strategy, passion, and a whole lot of you. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, network like a pro, and showcase your unique skills and personality. This is your time to shine, to break the mold, and land a job that makes you jump out of bed every morning (okay, maybe not every morning, but you get the picture).

And most importantly, never lose sight of your worth. You are talented, capable, and have something incredible to offer the world. Don’t let setbacks discourage you; use them as stepping stones to learn, grow, and come back stronger. This year, make a commitment to yourself, to your dreams, and to building a career that fills you with purpose and satisfaction.
