You need to develop the right attitude to be able to contain excessive anxiety during recruitment exercise. Management experts argue that when you are confident that you have the right qualifications, chances are that you will be calmer during the interview. You need therefore, to have confidence in your qualifications, which means you should target jobs where you are sure you qualify for. Job adverts tell a lot A job advertisement will usually tell you a lot about the organisation that is recruiting. It is good practice to look at vacancy notices beyond the surface. Read between the lines to assess the value of the organisation, particularly if it is an institution you hardly know anything about. Find avenues to get further background information before making your move. There is nothing as painful as changing jobs only to realise that you have simply jumped into the fire from a not-so-hot frying pan, after all. Understand your appointment contract Do you understand your job contract well or did you pick it in a rush at the point of employment, rushed to the pay package and benefits section, and then stashed it in your suitcase at home? You need to be constantly in touch with the details about the agreement you signed with your employer so that you can immediately point things out when your supervisor is overstepping the deal. You also need to be conversant with it in order that you do not unknowingly breach it.
