Tired of seeing the same places and those familiar faces? Do you wish you could just be adventurous and visit some far way place? Or do you want to move to another place to be closer to your partner and family? The solution is right in front of you!
Let me tell you, the best way to go about it is to change your job. Look for an outstation job and voila, you have an all new adventure to experience!
But how to go about it, you ask? Obviously, there are certain tricks to ensure that you never fail to procure your dream job, some of which we’ll see below:
The greatest challenge you're going to face while hunting for an out-of-town job is getting the companies to consider you as a potential employee. The reason is that most companies prefer to employ the people residing in the nearby areas as its easier to commute for the interview process and in the course of the job itself. So, the first step is to create an edge for yourself, something that is guaranteed to get you noticed by the employers.
Stress on the fact that you’ve considered this job seriously and that you’re willing to relocate near to the office. The fact that you give emphasis to moving from your hometown is bound to attract the attention of the HR.
Explain why you’re looking for a job in the city. Be HONEST and OPEN about your reason. (phrase it so that the employers feel that you’re a good candidate!)
Need I explain more? Practically all the job-seekers know the value of having a perfect resume. It becomes even more important when you're searching for a job out-of-town. In this case, your is your resume is your armour and shield. It is the only thing with which your employers are going to evaluate you from among the thousands of equally talented local candidates. So, your resume needs to be that perfect and polished, with no room for errors. Your resume needs to showcase how you're better than all those other job aspirants and firmly imply that this job can only be perfectly handled by you.
Get professional help, if needed but make sure your resume is worthy of being presented to the interviewers.
I have pointed out the need to network among your social as well as professional circles before itself. Do make it a point to look for contacts actively at least 6 months before you actually try to look for outstation jobs. Because no matter how hard you try, at times the only person to come through will be that contact.
4. MAKE IT EASIER
Make the whole interview process easier for the HR team of the company. You can do this by ensuring that you're in the city for the duration of the interview process. If that proves difficult, it might help if you've planned ahead on how to reach the city on time for the interview. DO NOT allow the company to feel like hiring you would be a disadvantage as you're not a local.
5. TOUGHEN UP
It is a widely known fact that is it more difficult to do an outstation job search than a normal , that too successfully. So, if the going gets hard and you feel discouraged, you need to take a breather, relax and stay strong. If you feel that you deserve the job you're searching for, and if you are qualified enough to land that job, then make no mistake; your talent will be recognized.
Searching for an outstation job and finding it is not impossible. It is just slightly more difficult than your average job search. But once you’ve made up your mind and decided that searching for this outstation job is going to get you closer to achieving your dreams, then move forward with your decision. Don’t stop to overthink and try your level best to convince the employers why you are the perfect person for the job, even if you’re a non-resident of that city.
