Applying for a job in the United States may be very different than in your home
country. There are certain “rules and regulations” to follow in terms of what
information to include on your CV/resume and cover letter. Your resume should
for example not specify anything about salary requirements, age of children and
their names, your height / weight, and reasons for leaving previous jobs.
Jobs are available in a number of different mediums such as newspapers,
internet, employment centers, through headhunters, job banks, networking, and
job fairs. The process of obtaining a job in the United States begins with you
and your strengths and weaknesses. Do you know what your potential is?
A proven strategy to obtain a job begins with a self-analysis of your strength
and weaknesses. Once you know what you can contribute with to a company, it is
time to write the cover letter and CV / resume. When you are called for
interviews, you need to know how to present yourself and what questions to
expect. Many jobs are lost because individuals are not prepared for the job
The “How to Get a Job in the United States” information guide describers the job
search process from how to know your strengths, search for a job, write the
cover letter and resume, and prepare for the interview.
