You might see companies you didn't know before -- add these to your list of targets. You might see the same requirements again and again -- this indicates a standard for the job you want, so incorporate these items into your pitch and cover letters.

Spend time to make your résumé the best possible written advertisement of you. Analyze the job requirements against your own skills and abilities, and customize your cover letter.

75 percent of companies require recruiters to research job applicants online, so you'll want to be sure you know what they'll find. Besides thinking twice about what you choose to post, she suggests doing a Google search on your name. If you find something undesirable, try to have it removed.

Simple but effective: A smart applicant arrives on time, dresses appropriately, both talks and listens, displays confidence and minds his manners.

As strange as it sounds, you need to ask for the job. At the end of the interview, sum up your strengths, tell the interviewer that you are excited about the position and say, 'I would really like to contribute to this company. I am hoping you select me.'

The AMCAT is India’s first employability assessment test that help fresh graduates to get their first job quickly and efficiently.
