At any new job you should learn as much as possible about everything. This also means to learn about other departments that are not your responsibility. This will make you an in-disposable asset in the company which will protect your job during periods of lay offs and/or reduced hours.

A great tip for workplace harmony is to avoid relationships in the workplace, and if your the employer, have a policy against it. While things may be great, and productivity may be increased when the going is good, imagine the havoc it will wreak on morale and productivity when and if things go sour!

No matter what your education or your work experience, do not be too picky about what kind of job you want. Sure, there may be a field you are very interested in, but you cannot discount another field if there are more opportunities in it. You can always take your second choice job until your first choice job becomes available.

If you are an employer looking to save a little when tax time comes, and you have a job that is pretty simple consider hiring a disabled worker. The federal government offers all sorts of tax benefits and advantages to doing so. This will save you a ton of money, and at the same time; the work is still getting done!

When it comes to communicating with potential employers, focus on keeping your words bright, light and polite. ‘Bright’ refers to the quality and freshness of your ideas compared to those of other candidates. Do you offer interesting perspectives and insight into innovation? ‘Light’ sentiments avoid overly cynical or negative statements. ‘Polite’ is self-explanatory, but is commonly overlooked in interpersonal communications. This includes proper grammar, respectful title and a nod to professional etiquette.

If you are on an interview and the interviewer asks what salary you prefer, always be as conservative as possible. It is better to say a little bit less than you want, as this is sometimes the weeding out process a company uses based on the budget that they have.

Network, network, network! When looking for a job use all of your resources, including both business and personal contacts. Connect with anyone that is in the field you are in and use resources like LinkedIn to find other contacts, too. Submitting your resume and application via an inside track gives you an edge over the many people who submit via the standard practice.

The key to finding a job these days is persistence! Present yourself well and go for as many opportunities as possible. Sooner or later you will be recognized for the talented and capable individual you are and find yourself hearing those two little words, “you’re hired!” Use these tips to make it happen.
