After quitting from your present job :

1.Smart Resume: first and foresmost things to consider when changing jobs is to always have a smart resume; it should be short and simple. If you have an experience of less than 5 years then make it of a single page otherwise you can add more pages. In experience section start from your present job profile and destination. Try to avoid the use of bold characters. Check it for grammar and spelling mistakes at least twice. Before sending it to any company read it carefully.

Mention your full name with job profile. Use keywords related to your job responsibilities. So recruiters able to easily find out your profile.

Before giving interview in new company:

1. Understand the company: before applying it is good to collect all information regarding company. Firstly if its scam or fraud you are safe. Secondly, during interview HR may ask questions about company and its product to check your awareness.

2. Prepare for 10 mostly asked interview questions:

• Why do you want to join our company?

• What do you know about our company?

• How will you change the current conditions?

• Where do you see yourself five years from now?

• Do you think you are successful?

Always negotiate after clearing interview in a new company :

1. Take some time: wait until or unless ask about your salary expectations. Do not utter on our own. Let first company decide that you are the best candidate among all and what will be your salary package. Then only keep your view in front of them. To talk about expected salary in starting of conversation is a crazy thing.
2. Tell them about options: if you are shortlisted by some other companies, then let them know while negotiating. Chances of getting good salary packages increases as it left good impact on the recruiter. Never make false stories.
3. Analysis the offer completely: before accepting any offer given by a company, analyze it completely. Discuss and understand from HR what should be your in-hand salary and what other deductions are made in other things.
4. Importance of profile and grade: if they are offering you more salary from present package but compromise your present profile and grade. If your job responsibilities are less than present job, then never accept such offer.
