hey guys it's Meghan and I am back with another video of course today so today I'm going to talk to you about how to get a job in New York and how to get one fast so I came here unemployed just living off my savings and I was terrified because I've heard stories like my roommate took her quite some time to find a job I know other people who had a hard time finding a job here
00:30
so let me go through some do's and don'ts of trying to get a job here because it's definitely it can be stressful it can be intimidating especially if you're coming here and there's a lot of competition the first thing you want to do is have a really strong resume I actually talked to a hiring manager in New York who sees hundreds thousands of applications all the time she knows what to look for she said you don't even have to have
01:00
your address on your resume I think it's good and can be important to have your address on your resume if you live in New York because people want to see that you live here so if you have an apartment here and you've already moved here put your address on the resume and honestly I would also that's another thing I would suggest is if you move here without a job it's gonna be not as hard for you to find a job because you have an address and you're unemployed and people are looking for people that
01:31
they can snap up really quickly I've noticed that that is also another thing that's important here so if you're applying from out of state and you're still living out of state and they're trying to get a job hoping to move there that is a different story that is a harder story I would recommend not putting your address on there they're gonna look to see your current employment and if you're in like for example Kansas City or Chicago they're gonna be like well why do we want to hire you if you don't even live here but
02:03
you know it is important to stress that you're willing to relocate it is obviously don't hide that you're currently employed or anything but you I have to hit the pavement a little harder if you are in a different city it is harder to get a job if you're not living in this city people hire fast they hire within days they hire within hours they need someone and they have hundreds if not thousands of applicants so your best bet is to be priority which
02:33
is to get in as quickly and as best as you can so yes have your resume updated have a strong resume have your details of your job descriptions underneath your jobs cover letters aren't as important I do believe that you should have a cover letter I think it looks professional but I think you should have the bulk of your information in your resume really beefed it up if you're creative have something cool and different that stands out
03:05
obviously if you're going to be like a lawyer or get into business profession you don't want some crazy different resume versus someone who's like applying someone like me who would be applying to a social media job or applying to like you know something artsy and creative obviously that's gonna have a different resume than someone who's applying to be a doctor I would definitely put that up beefed up your skills any skills that you have make sure you have it any training any awards make sure you put that on there
03:37
so it sticks out because people ask you about that if you put something different in random like I was on internet icon so I put that on my resume and people like what is that they want to know about it they want to know like if I put YouTube on my resume I can talk about how I do videos and how I've experienced editing now from that and then it gets into more things some more things that you are skilled at and people want people that are skilled at something it definitely helps to like with what I got into like I have a communications degree I have six years
04:09
of customer service that helped a lot in my interviews because I was loyal to one company for so long and then I also have my bachelor's degree which is extremely essential to get a job in my field at least obviously if you're applying to be like a waitress or a barista you don't need a degree but it is super super competitive and then it's town to get into the food industry and they don't pay great
04:40
some of them do obviously if you're like a waitress here some waitresses make tons of money and they like they just make tons of money from tips it just depends on locations some areas are not as good and they're not a they don't take care of their employees as well that's just like any other place in America but it can be very competitive to get into that field I had six years of experience in the customer service
05:10
world retail which Racine all that stuff which I thought wasn't going to be great on a employment application for marketing but it actually helped a lot because marketing is dealing and selling to people so six years of customer service really really helped my resume so don't ever be embarrassed of whatever skills you have obviously so that's number one is make sure your resume looks really good make sure you have a cover letter very important so then in
05:42
order to find jobs I stuck with one website I think that's important too instead of trying to go into a whole bunch of different websites trying to find different things I stuck with indeed.com this seemed to be a really good source for me because it had companies from all over it had like BuzzFeed and Fox and then it had smaller marketing firms around the city so to me that was worth it to try to get on there and it had like I want to say at least
06:15
two to three hundred new jobs post a date like in my related field in marketing marketing assistants social media everything like that what I found was that if you saw a job listing if it had been posted within 30 minutes of three hours that is your window to put in your resume I applied for probably like 20 to 25 jobs a day I did that for about six or seven days I probably honestly over the span of a
06:47
week I put in for about two to three hundred jobs it was my goal every day to put in between 20 and 50 jobs that was my goal my resume was already set up I was constantly working on a portfolio which I put on like a website basically is how you know how you access it of course and I was constantly reworking my resume I had about five different resumes for different areas like one for
07:16
marketing one for social media and like it was just a lot like I was putting it all together trying to get organized and I was working on this like five to six hours a day this was also before I started my youtube channel I was also filming at the time because I wanted to start my youtube channel I would wake up early treat it like a job go to the library sit there for four or five hours just mass put in jobs that was my goal
07:46
and then I would go and film somewhere for a couple hours and then take a break I gave myself a weekend I let myself be a little more laughs on Saturday and Sunday I feel like I did this for about a week week and a half almost two weeks actually that's a lie I would say it was about two weeks of me doing this hard hard hard court I got interviews almost immediately I would get phone calls and emails like like within like two three hours and and then I started going on
08:19
interviews because that's important is to kind of you know start again people are so fast in this city most most of the employers here like to do a phone interview first to kind of get a sense of how you talk so if you're not comfortable with the phone practice with someone call like your mom or your friend or your brother I don't care whoever you need to call and do a little practice phone interview I'm very comfortable with the phone I've worked with it for six years so it didn't bother me I had no problem in the phone interview I had
08:50
no problem in the real interview because interviews don't scare me I'm a people person I love to communicate I can do a video on that how to practice phone interviews how to practise in-person interviews to make it basically they want to see what kind of person you are so if you put that forward if you act interested in their company which most likely if you're interviewing for them you're interested in their company so do your research when you before you go to a company see what they do look up
09:21
their social media I was applying for social media jobs I looked up these people's social medias and then I had comments about them because it was interesting to me and I have knowledge of that I applied for the my current job on a Monday I got a phone call from him later that day did a phone interview with him on that Monday went in for the in-person interview on a Tuesday it got hired on a Thursday this is how quickly things move in New York people don't have time to sift through stuff indeed
09:51
will tell you how many applicants were for a job and it is staggering some jobs only get a couple hundred other jobs I've seen three to five thousand people apply for one job I've seen 600 people apply for an office assistant if someone's hiring an office assistant do you think they have time to go through five to six hundred applicants this is why timing is key this is why you put in immediately within twenty eight two minutes to three hours I don't care if
10:23
it's been a minute did they post it you put in for that job because after I would say after 24 hours I you can still put in for the job I've never had luck doing that I wouldn't attempt it unless it's been posted immediately because what I found is that employers will go through the first 50 to 100 applications pick out the best from there so if you can beat out like 50 to 100 people that's nothing
10:54
it's beating out 3,000 that is a totally different story that's why being early is so so key in New York those are my recommendations for getting a job in New York getting one quickly all right so I'll talk more on different things later but I hope you guys enjoyed this video don't forget to Like comment and subscribe and I will talk to you guys tomorrow bye
