Rock solid plan in just 4 steps to grab your next job opportunity in the next 30 Days
In today’s story, we will discuss the rock-solid plan to grab your next job opportunity in 30 days as a developer. By the way, it doesn’t matter what domain you belong to and what job you are looking for designers, marketing, and product manager this strategy is mathematically proven.
Let’s jump into it directly,
According to one job-finding survey, on average, if you are looking for a worldwide remote job then you start getting responses after 100/150+ cold emails or Job applications.
Basically, you have to apply to more than 100 companies in one go and it might sound frustrating but when we break the strategy it won’t be as difficult as it sounds.
Since we knew the objective so bigger the WHY becomes and clear the HOW will. The objective is to apply to more than or equal to 150 companies and we have only 30 days so we will divide the first 10 days into collecting companies' email ids or job applications form.
You can divide the maths accordingly whether you want to collect 10 emails per day or 15 emails per day, I would go for 15 as it saves me 5 more extra days.
At the end of the 10th day, you will have more than 150 companies' email ids applying for the job and you can ease this process of collecting email ids using Chat GPT itself.
Or you can use this portal that I’ve developed for everyone to grab their next job opportunity called Find Jobs Portals.
Every day you choose anytime in the day to collect email ids and search for the companies. Apply directly all together to those 15 companies in one go using cold emailing, Yes, cold emailing is WHAT I prefer to find the next remote job opportunity. It sincerely works all of my preceding jobs were accorded to grab via cold emailing so I can assure you of the importance of it.
Next 10 days * 15 emails per day = 150 Job application
Now the task is clear, every day you have to just collect 15 emails from the companies who are hiring and apply them via cold email at the end of each day.
Do not underestimate the power of preparation, you should prepare even if are confident or low confident.
I mean the interviewer also hasn’t upgraded himself, the task, the assignment and most of the interview questions are almost the same.
After giving 100+ interviews so far, I’ve jotted down all 50 interview questions and I am certain that you will be asked questions among them in your next interview.
You can directly go through those questions to prepare yourself for future adversity.
This is also underestimated by a lot of people whom I recommend this technique. You should manage all the job applications in one place otherwise it will become messed up in the middle of the process, you will get confused about which company to apply to for what profile and what and when should I suppose to reply them back, bla bla bla shit.
In order to avoid this confusion, I create this job application tracker table in my Notion. I am using this to put all the email ids in one place with the status of the first email and second email and interview and so forth.
This simply avoids confusion and I don’t have to remember things I just invest 25/30 minutes to research the companies hiring and their respective email ids and add them to the table. Once the target is achieved or I’ve collected those 15 email ids then I start applying them one by one.
I called it a SYSTEM, a system to apply for the next job, a system to grab your next opportunity.
I mean in this way, we usually don’t feel too much pressure, and we feel burnout.
We are preparing, researching, and managing the job application so precisely that success becomes inevitable.
So try this method for the next 30 days and you will be shocked at how apt it is.
Many times companies will give you the assignment before putting you in the spot of interviewing. It’s good to test and witness the coding skills but it’s often time-consuming for experienced developers.
I often refuse to do so or I ask them to pay me back, I know it’s not FAIR but it’s about time not about the assignment.
My advice is to reuse the codebases and simply copy-paste the codebases if you have one otherwise create one and reuse it everywhere.
