Job Hunters, Can Now Do “WONDERS”

Job Hunters, Can Now Do “WONDERS”


It's a norm these days that we often hear one statement from most of the people we come across – “Man! Market is very uncertain, I have no Job security..” or at times “Please pray for me, I think I am about to get laid off as many of my colleagues met the same fate last month”.

To be honest, one should accept this fact that deep down there, he is worried about the uncertainty of the so called market. Come on! We all know that recession has been there already and the else is just manipulated or better put as exploited. Even today in the midst of such a crisis one can find better to do – jobs. The point is how to be the one amongst the rest.


Since last month I have been attending quite a few parties and gathering. So, meeting some old friends from different phases of life is a usual thing. Five of my old acquaintances were laid off during that phase, belonging to different sectors, pharmaceutical, FMCG and IT. Four out of five are married and three out of four are fathers of sweet kids, by the grace of All Mighty. For them, losing their job was the biggest nightmare of their lives. They used to be down and gloomy, talking about the negative sides of the life, finding the darkness in the brightest moments of their lives. To be honest, if someone loses his or her job one fine morning – (which to most of us is an AILING end of the career), it's highly dreadful to think even. So there were many others too from the lot who suffered from the same tragedy.


The phenomenon of INDIVIDUALITY is lovely – I personally love it, as every one thinks and implements as per his own way. Similarly, all the sufferers had to get back into the field by any how. They all chose altogether different approaches and manners to pull their socks up. It was then, when I personally realized that every one can bring the best out of the worst conditions, provided he/she is on right track and most of all focused. So, different approaches were adopted by the different friends of mine, they polished their skills to publicly promote themselves, in one way or the other, by being well witted, informative and expressive.


Today if we talk about going out, meeting with people and having a good time at a friends’ place, it is considered as normality of life. But why don't we explore a new future through these activities. Target your employer, colleague or agent. Be pro-active! Hit it on the right joint by the very first impression. It's been ages since we are hearing “First Impression is the Last Impression”, when are we actually gonna implement it? Now is the time, same thing was done by my friend, he highlighted his own self by being RELEVANTLY TALKATIVE person amongst the crowd and he earned a good account, today he is on better job, then he was earlier.


Today, third party is a commonly heard term – Third party logistics, Third party employers and Third Party Contractors etc. There are consultancies, which provide better solutions to the problems faced by jobless individuals. One of my friend approached to such consultancy, as per him, these consultancies are really very well-organized and can place the candidates on the right position. He soon got lucky, by being patient and consistent. He for sure has scored a good job through that. So these companies act as linkage and bridge between right human resources to the right work places.


Facebook! Am sure the name rings so many bells in the mind, these days – Farmville, Scrabble, Mafia Wars and Texas Hold’em Poker – rite? But there are certain other things also, strictly for those who want to get a better future. There are so many plat-forms on face book, through which one can find better jobs. All that is required is to take interest and start applying through the help of such forums. These days LinkedIn is very popular and you can get the results in 2-3 months, provided you have right kind of people in your profile. It's been ages, that we known about the, but have we ever applied consistently for the jobs there? I don't think so; people got their dream jobs through it. Similarly my friends did get the job through on-line plat-forms. Many a times I myself got so many calls – with the help of the same site. It is advised to youngsters and those who want to either start or switch their jobs – they must try to understand the importance of technology and apply for jobs through such sites.


Something to work out for fresher, home based individuals and people who don't have much to do on their jobs – who want to do something small to earn side by side is elance and freelance. I will soon discuss some facts regarding this site also. Very beneficial for those who want to stay at home, yet want to earn good!


Well, there are a lot of uncertainties in one's life. Every one come across certain kinds of – what you may say – tight situations. But all that matters is, how are you treating your life? How much is one ready to stand up against that uncertainty? To make a different life, one has to start thinking differently and act differently. Everyone has the tendency to be successful – apart from Armani, Versace, Ford, GE and Birla we also have Mr. Tapal, Mr. Hashmi Surma wala, Students’ Briani,  Kolson and Mr. Abjani (An Inspiration)!

Think and Act!

P.S. Please Do Share Your Personal Experiences and Thoughts about it.


  1. Very nicely put...everything that people around us are facing..
    a very genius piece of writing..

  2. i think its rather a practical approach or a solution oriented approach to a problem that one has no influence over i.e. recession. But as rightly said should take such a break as an opportunity for betterment. An excellent food for thought !!

  3. Thank you for your liking and appreciation.
