job in 2019.

Whether you are currently out of job or
looking for a greener pasture, this article is for
you.
If you had plans to get a good job in 2018 and
didn’t work. It is time to try something more
strategic.

In the words of Albert Einstein, “Insanity is
doing the same thing over and over again and
expecting a different result”. Since your
approach to getting a high paying job didn’t
work out in 2018, let’s try something different
and new.
Times are changing and you need to do things
differently to achieve a better result. In the
past, people were comfortable for working in
one company throughout their professional
life.

Things are different now. And most
professionals are constantly looking for
greener pastures. In fact, some may change
jobs over 7 times throughout their professional
life.
Irrespective of what people told you about
unemployment, there are still jobs out there.
But you have to be strategic to get a high
paying one.

Below are the 5 strategic ways to get a high
paying job in 2019. The different methods and
techniques explained here have been tested
and proven. Without a doubt, they will
definitely work for you.

5 Strategic Ways To Get A High Paying Job
In 2019


1. Networking And Referrals

One of the strategic ways to get a high paying
job in 2019 is networking and referrals. Most
times, job seekers often underestimate the
power of referrals.
According to experts, there is a hidden job
market that you can’t always access and see.
But networking and knowing the right people
will definitely give you access to it.
In recent times, most companies don’t do open
recruitment again. They have decided to keep
it under wrap for reasons best known to them.
However, you can only know about such jobs
and vacancies when you know the right people.
Do you want to hear the hard truth about the
job market? In some cases, your application,
credentials, and experience will not get you a
job on its own. You need to network with the
right people to push for you.
So, as we approach 2019, it is time to activate
your network. Reach out and inform them that
you need a greener pasture.
The reason network is very effective is because
every person on your network is obviously a
part of another network. If you have a network
ready to help, you will definitely get a high
paying job in no time.

2. Career Websites And Job Searching
Platforms


Career websites are also a strategic way to get
a high paying job in 2019. Companies seldom
post job ads on newspapers these days. They
all post their openings on career websites and
job searching platforms.
Examples of career websites in Nigeria are; ,
jobguru.com, , career24.com, pushcv.com etc.
You can easily visit any of the above websites
and search for jobs using a keyword. For
instance, you can search for “ Electrical
engineering jobs in Nigeria”. This will come up
with all possible job vacancies in different
locations relating to the keyword.

3. Get Your CV and Cover Letter Ready

CV and cover letter are the most important
tools of a job seeker. In fact, CV is to a job
seeker what cutlass is to a farmer.
Therefore, ensure that your CV and cover letter
are always ready and up to date. Do research
about the current trend in resume and cover
letter Writing. And format your own
accordingly.
Your CV and cover letter are what a recruiter
use to evaluate you before meeting you. The
impression these documents create about you
can go along way to either compliment or mar
your job search effort.

4. Visit Company Websites

One of the most strategic ways to get a high
paying job in 2019 is visiting company
websites. This is relatively easy. Just write
down the names of companies you would like
to work for.
After preparing the list, start visiting their
websites. Every website you visit, try to check
their career section. See if they have any
vacancy. And read more about them.
After doing all these , you can submit an
unsolicited application to the company. Such
applications will be in that company’s
application’s bank and they can easily see it
when they are looking for people.
Alternatively, you can send a well constructed
email to the company, with an attention line to
the Human Resources Manager. Tell them your
qualification, experience and that you would
like to work with them.
As a rule, try to be accurate and error free in
the email you are sending. If you are lucky,
there will respond and give you further details.

5. Social Media Channels

You can also use your social media channel to
get a job in 2019. However, if you are
planning of getting a job through your social
media channels, you must consider the
following;

1. Ensure you use your real name on your
social media profiles.

2. All your images must be professional and
the same across all your social media
platform.

3. Try to be very professional and post
information or images that are related to the
industry you are interested in.

4. If you have any platform you are no longer
active on, try to delete the profile.

5. Ensure you brand yourself. Let your
followers know who you are, what you do and
if possible your future plans.

6. The job market is very competitive and
dynamic, but when you are consistent in your
search, you will definitely get a job.
