    Less experienced candidates seeking job after a long gap of unemployment

    After completion of MBA, I discontinued with the job within 6 months because of marriage. After 1 year, I wish to pick up a job again. During one of the interviews, interviewer conveyed that the long gap closes all doors for any negotiation. Can I negotiate for the salary, if so what should be my basis. Please guide me.

    Really it is true at the company level job they mark it ie gap of service negatively, so whenever you do apply you must focus your fault/weakness clearly and you put your claim regarding package negotiable after verifying your one month performance to the company.Then company people obviously they will change their views as your option is acceptable beside your qualification.You are MBA more or less you are strong and stout than a fresher B.E. or B.Tech so surely you will grab the opportunity.

    Thank you,

    Hi buddy

    Maybe that interviewer is right and if you have long gap in job then maybe you cant negotiate your salary that freely as you would have had if you have no gap. But ofcourse you should not be disheartend by this.Such things happen with many people but you should fight your way out of this situation. Firstly you should not worry and keep your calm.

    Now you can certainly try to negotiate your salary but if the interviewer doesnt allow to do so then you can , by your hard work and calibre , prove that you are worth much more and then you will certainly get a salary hike i am sure. So let your work speak for you and dont let such things bog you down. Find a good job where there is ample scope for growth. Show your dedication and hard work there and get your reward.

    But if you want to negotiate now, you can try to do so on the basis of your previous achievements and job experience. If the interviewer thinks you have the calibre based on your past performance then he will certainly entertain you and give you the desired salary.

    Good luck friend. Hope you have a bright future. God Bless

    Dear Aspirant,

    You need not worry for job because one year gap is not a matter of problem in getting the job. You should have aim first to get job in a recognised organisation as early as possible. In order to get job at the earliest,you must register your resumes to job portal sites such as www.monster.com,www.naukri.com,etc. Also you must be watching the newspaper like times of india,employment newspaper for advertisement with regard to your job.

    After having experience of 2-3 years,you will have better scope for negotiating for salary in other organisations. If you now start negotiating for salary, it will create problem in getting the job which will hamper your career.

    So,try to get your desired job as early as possible.

    Thanks and good luck.

    Ashok.

    Hi friend,Yes you have to justify the reason for gap in service with right reasons. But don't loose heart if you have sound knowledge in your technology, you can deserve it.As you are fresher you can get good oppurtunities. You can try as fresher as well as experienced.Hope this will helps,Regards,BSR.

    Dear Friend!

    Long gap of unemployment is more complicated to get job opportunities for every one. Interviewers select/hire fresher/experienced candidates who is just complected their education or working with any company. But you have 6 months long gap due to your marriage. So it will be little completed for you to grab the jobs but you will get finely. For this you have to be prepared yourself for new job along with experience. And you have to explain yourself clearly as well due to long gap in your experience. Surely you will get new job.

    Thanks

    Hello, Firstly,I would say that it was not a good decision to discontinue your job.This has definitely affected your present situation.Whenever you will go for any fresh interview everywhere you will be asked the same question.But you have to be prepared to face and overcome the situation.You are the only one who can decide about the negotiation keeping in mind about your skills,ability and potential.Since you dont have much experience ,you may have to remain partly satisfied with your job at this point of time.

    Having a long gap in the jobs only after working for a period of six months, you will not be considered as an experienced candidate. In your situation, you are just equal to the fresher, so you are not in a position to have negotiation on salary with intervieweer. As per my view, now your's first preference must be having job in the company which has good environment and growth opportunities. Once you get an experience of minimum two years, then you can negotiate and it's also depends upon your performance. At this time, you should have the capability to convience the intervieweer regarding the gap in job.

    Really it's true at the corporate level job they mark it that is gap of service negatively, thus whenever you are doing apply you need to focus your fault/weakness clearly and you place your claim concerning package negotiable when validating your one month performance to the corporate.

    Then company folks clearly they're going to amendment their views as your choice is suitable beside your qualification.You are Master in Business a lot of or less you're sturdy and stout than a lowerclassman B.E. or B.Tech thus sure enough you'll grab the chance.

    Maybe that querier is correct and if you have got long gap in job then perhaps you cant hash out your regular payment that freely as you'd have had if you have got no gap. however ofcourse you must not be disheartend by this.Such things happen with many folks however you must fight your solution of this example. first off you must not worry and keep your calm.

    Currently you'll be able to actually try and hash out your regular payment however if the querier doesnt permit to try and do thus then you'll be able to , by your exertions and calibre , prove that you simply square measure value rather more then you'll actually get a regular payment hike i'm positive. thus let your work represent you and dont let such things bathroom you down. notice an honest job wherever there's ample scope for growth. Show your dedication and exertions there and find your reward.

    However if you wish to barter currently, you'll be able to try and do thus on the idea of your previous achievements and job expertise. If the querier thinks you have got the calibre supported your past performance then he will definitely entertain you and provides you the specified regular payment.
    Long gap of state is a lot of difficult to urge job opportunities for each one. Interviewers select/hire fresher/experienced candidates WHO is simply complected their education or operating with any company. however you have got half dozen months long gap as a result of your wedding. thus it'll be very little completed for you to grab the roles however you'll get finely. For this you have got to be ready yourself for brand spanking new job beside expertise. And you have got to elucidate yourself clearly similarly as a result of long gap in your expertise. sure enough you'll get new job.

    Having an extended gap within the jobs solely when operating for a amount of six months, you'll not be thought-about as Associate in Nursing practiced candidate. In your state of affairs, you're simply adequate to the lowerclassman, thus you're not in a very position to own negotiation on regular payment with querier. As per my read, currently your's 1st preference should be having job within the company that has sensible surroundings and growth opportunities. Once you get Associate in Nursing expertise of minimum 2 years, then you'll be able to hash out and it is also depends upon your performance. At this point, you must have the potential to persuade the querier concerning the gap in job.
