Every job doesn't demand experience just like every job doesn't demand a degree. A degree or some experience just increase your chances of getting a job by many folds. The importance of a degree or of experience cannot be questioned; however, not having them isn't the end of everything. In the end, what matters is your will and your passion to pursue a particular career. Again, there are jobs that mandatorily demand experience or relevant experience. These are jobs that you have to work hard to land up with. But again, that isn't impossible either. There are a lot of ways by which you can get your hands on some of the best jobs. Let's see how.
Your Options
Hunt Them Down
One of the best ways to increase your chances of getting a job without experience is by searching for as many jobs as possible. Look in the papers, on the Internet, and ask as many friends as you can. Certain jobs are listed only for freshers, where training is provided on the job.
Don't Be Too Selective
Your chances of landing up with a job aren't bad, but you have to agree that they aren't as great as someone who has experience. So, don't be too choosy while taking up an opportunity when it comes your way. You can take this up and be at it for a few months. After being at it for a while, you have some experience to bank upon. When the time comes to apply, apply for all the vacant spots. You never know what actually strikes it lucky for you!
Money for Nothing
Another tip here is to not look at the money. There are a lot of companies that would take you in as a trainee or for an internship. An internship is something that is easily achievable if you have a college degree. If you don't, you can apply for the post of a trainee. Don't reject the offer just because they aren't paying you or because they aren't giving you enough. The start can be tough, but gradually, you will be paid on your confirmation.
Job Portals
Create your profile on various job portals. There are a lot of job portals out there who don't even charge you anything for uploading your profile and looking at prospective openings. Apart from these, you can also sign up at the local employment agencies. You will have to provide a few educational details and some details as to what you are looking for, in terms of industry and salary expectations.
Whether you apply for a vacant post directly or whether you create a profile on the Internet, one thing you will surely need is a resume. You will be required to create this even if you are a freshman. Now, make this resume as attractive as you can, so that it stands out from the rest. Don't forget to mention all your qualities and traits. Also, mention in detail your dreams, aspirations, and goals. Don't forget to upload a photograph and mention even the most trivial courses you have done till date.
If your college offers placements, make sure you appear for as many as possible. Here, it is already considered that you don't have experience. Be receptive and ready to take advantage of any opportunity that comes knocking on your door. Best of Luck!
