Is well understand that an idle man is a devil workshop which make too many people to Search for Job.

But when doing this there are thousand of mistake most people make which make them not to be accepted

Before you start planning what you’ll wear on your first day at work, make sure you’re not doing anything that could hurt your chances of moving through the job hunt and interview process. There are many opportunities to mess up, and here are seven foolish mistakes too many people make when looking for a job. The second mistake is simple to avoid, and it can help separate you from the rest of the candidates, so you get the job.

1. Being too aggressive with follow-up

Contain your excitement. There’s a big difference between being assertive and aggressive. And it would be in your best interest to learn to differentiate between the two. You might be enthusiastic about working with a particular company, but that doesn’t give you a license to become the hiring manager’s personal stalker.

Take a step back and allow some breathing room. Remember you aren’t the only person applying for the position. The hiring team most likely has to wade through hundreds of resumes and interview a dozen or so candidates. Be patient. If you are a top candidate, you could ruin your chances by being too aggressive. Unless the hiring manager has given you a different timeline, your best bet is to wait at least a week before following up. And don’t show up at the office unannounced; that’s just creepy.

 

 2. Not following up

On the opposite end of the spectrum is not following up at all. Just because you don’t want to be annoying doesn’t mean you should do nothing. Following up (not pestering) is key. Make sure to send a thank-you note or email to show your appreciation for the interviewer’s time. We’re in an age where people are often too busy to offer a simple word of thanks, so this will set you apart from the other candidates.

It’s important to stay in the interviewer’s mind, and this is a good way to do it. Send a thank-you email to each person who interviewed you at least within 24 hours (same day is best). If you’re going the snail-mail route, mail your notes as soon as you get home. Just be sure to double check those business cards. It is vital you get everyone’s name and title right. Speed is important, but so is accuracy. What good will it do if all of your cards go to the wrong address or you’ve misspelled everyone’s names?

 

3. Putting all of your eggs in one (virtual) basket

Don’t limit your job search to online job boards.

There’s more than one way to look for a job. Whatever you do, don’t limit your job search to online job boards. The chances are pretty high that your resume will end up in a junk mail folder, go to the wrong person, or never get sent at all due to some technical glitch (which is why follow-up is so important). Also, make sure to tap your network and speak to friends, family, and neighbors about your job hunt.

 

 

4. Asking for a ridiculously high starting salary

Base your salary request on market research.

Don’t just come up with a salary that sounds good, and ask for that amount. If you ask for a salary that is much higher than the usual for that position or for your experience and education level, you’ll appear arrogant, inexperienced, or both. Always conduct research before making a salary request. Chances are the hiring manager will ask how you came up with your request. Websites, such as Salary.com and Payscale.com, can help you with your research.

 

5. Taking too long to respond to a job offer

If you’re interviewing for a couple of jobs simultaneously and receive a job offer, you might be put in a position where you have to wait to see whether the other employer responds, so you can compare job offers. It’s not easy to get a job offer these days, so when you get one that closely matches what you’re looking for, make sure not to wait too long to respond.
