Dear Amit,

The truth about job search is that it is a combination of luck, patience, and positivism. There will be many instances wherein you will feel disheartened as you will not find success. But you will have to be patient and still keep up the search.

As you have already figured out that you have to build a career in networking and security, you now need to build a professional resume and cover letter. Cover letters are very important! Customise your resume along with a clear cover letter outlining your skills in the field and interest in the particular company. Do highlight your skills and accomplishments.

Apply for both advertised and unadvertised job postings. Keep an eye on job supplements like Times Ascent, employment journals and websites like Naukri.com, Timesjobs.com, Monster.com etc. Post your profile on Linkedin.com and tap into other social media sites as well like Freshersworld.com. Remember, references have the highest success rate in job search, so talk to as many people as possible who are in the jobs that you would like to be in as these discussions often lead to valuable job leads and contacts.

There are instances when people give time limits to job hunt and I strongly advise against it. When you get a rejection, it is a mismatch of expectations and don’t take it personally. You will have more misses than hits in this journey. Enjoy the learnings, pot holes, and the bumps. They bring you close to success.

Till the time you find your job, it is important to keep learning and upgrading your skills. You can also try freelancing or join as an intern with some company. Happy fixing!
