    It is good if the job seeker may think like this “Where I am and how I will start my preparation in order to achieve my goal?”
    Consistently working towards the target is highly important.

    The above list will applicable for those who are very passionate about their career goals. The biggest Mistake most of the job seekers or fresh graduate do is sitting infront of computer and applying for jobs is not the right way to get a job while they should be taking lot of other actions, such as talking to friends and family about their job search and asking for advice and referrals to networking contacts, and using social media to build a professional presence and connect with potential employers.. eg.Linkedin
