Friends

Try to make as big network of friends as possible. Students very often get their first job through contacts and recommendations of their friends. Come more to our offices and you will find lots of friends that may help you in finding a job.

 

Visiting potential employers

Visiting personally your potential employers is the most effective way to get a job. It is important to have ready a well written curriculum vitae/resume and present it in different places. It is essential to speak directly with the manager of the company/restaurant.
Be aware that you will probably not be successful in the first attempt and do not let this discourage you. It is worth visiting the same place repeatedly and showing that you are really interested in the position.
Going from one place to another might be bit of a hassle sometimes, but it definitely works BEST. If you are not sure how to inquire about the job by the employer, Information Planet runs a regular Interview preparation seminar every Friday at 3:30pm where you can practice with a native English speaker.
