Employers like employees with a positive attitude and that are not easily discouraged by setbacks. They look for enthusiaism and innovation. No employer wants someone who seems unprepared, unfocused, disillusioned or scattered. You need to have a defined outlook for what you want. Do not just apply for any position they have, state precisely which position is available that you are interested in.
Research the position you are seeking and know exactly what it entails as well as the qualities and skills needed for it. From thenceforth you will be able to produce a formatted and well-tailored cover letter for that position and give the impression that you are focused and not vague in what you are endeavoring towards.
You could try looking for a job in a variety of places. Try searching, online, in newspapers, word of mouth, through organizations, employment counselling, calling, cold-calling, networking and job fairs. The best try is to mix all of those alternatives together to increase your chances at visibility.
Once you have sent out your resume, you can follow up with your potential employer. Do not forget to send a thank you note for them taking the time and considering your application. This shows determination and common courtesy. There is no need to repetitively contact them after the interview.
