Application Overview

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”–Confucius

At the latest after finishing school or studies it’s time to enter the world of work. Thereby application documents play a big role. The more demanding the job application is the more important it is to present yourself with your application documents in the right manner. For good positions, especially in big companies, often more than hundreds of people apply for. My current position was also very inquired. I didn’t get it because of my grades. But for my application documents I get compliments all the time. Furthermore I understand that searching a Job is a process.

At this point I want to give you a rough overview of the job search process. For every process step I will write an own article and link to it here:

Process Step:

  • Preparing your application documents

  • Search for the Position

  • (Phone Interview)

  • (Assessment center)

  • Job interview

Visualization

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” – Albert Einstein

To imagine actions vividly is called visualization. What sounds like daydreaming is correctly used one of the best tools for self-improvement. At this point I want to give you an overview for the areas of application. For every area I will post a separate article, later.

Here is an incomplete list:

  • Mental training: Is applied by almost all athletes. They visualize sequences of movements, plays, strategies but also their emotions. As a result they achieve a better performance.

  • To overcome anxiety: Here you visualize the worst-case scenario.

  • Memory: Your memory can be increased enormously by applying the right kind of visualization technique. Such techniques are used by mental athletes.

  • To reach goals: You must believe that you can reach your goal before you can actually do it.

Actions:

  • Observe what you visualize and what you want to accomplish by doing so.

SMART Goals

Nowadays everybody sets goals. Athletes have the goal to win championships. Companies have the goal to make much money. Parents have the goal to spend more time with their children. However often they fail to reach their goals because of the definition.

Your tasks and goals should be defined SMART. SMART stands for:

Specific:

Define your goals as specific as possible. Otherwise you won’t know there to start and when you reached your goal. Not: “I will learn Spanish!”, rather: “I will learn to speak to a Spaniard about the weather!”.

Measurable:

You only can reach goals that are measurable. So define your goals It’s hard to measure something abstract; it’s easy to measure something concrete, like numbers. That’s why you should define your goals specific.

Achievable:

You goals should be realistically achievable.

Relevant:

Your goals should have relevance. Don’t waste time on unimportant tasks and goals. Concentrate on the really important things!

Time-boxed:

Define a time frame for your tasks and goals. Otherwise you will always delay it.

Your goals should make sense in a wider context.

Don’t plan to far ahead. Plan as late as possible; when you will have the most information.

Your man,
