The 3 Myths of Job Searching

Applying online if the only way to find a new role

Not true! With social media taking over our lives, networking via LinkedIn, Twitter and other apps such as 4square are great ways to get your name out there and see what the market has to offer. Picking up the phone and calling a string of companies to see if they have any vacancies may prove more beneficial than spamming every job board known to man.

Cover letters are a thing of the past.

Hate this! Cover letters show that you have really taken an interest in the company and spent some time tailoring a document to that specific role/ company. It’s a great way to show employers you are not just applying to every single job on the market. Only if the job spec specifies not to supply a cover letter should you not attach one.

The smartest person gets the job.

This is a poor excuse. You could have the coolest degree and have a wealth of knowledge about a specific role/ industry, but can you apply it? Can you really do it? You could do a business degree but not know how to speak to someone about a business opportunity. Education is important and can put you in good stead but is in no way a means to sail through to career stardom.

Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
