Work is a part of life for most of us, without which life would not be valuable. Work is both self-realization and career opportunities and certainly a source of income or livelihood. Each of us works according to our abilities, needs, expectations. Some people like the job they work more, others less, and others may not like it at all.

But we feel the real situation when we lose our job. Losing a job is faster for some, slower for others but the need to find a new one comes by itself. However, we are not only looking for a job when we do not have it. Many of us are looking for a better job even when we are working. So how do you find a job?

- Create a professional CV. You can use paid templates, many of which can be found online. Available free of charge. You can create something of your own. Free templates save you money and are often more versatile. Some free templates also allow you to upload your resume with the help of a link and disable the link at any time to make your resume invisible. The Lovejob.lt system also has this possibility. Here you can choose from the three templates you like best and store your CV in a database, download it to your computer or share it with potential employers just by link.

- Select better known, more reliable selection / recruitment agencies, contact them and send your CV to them with information to look for a new job.

- Listen to what the selection agency's representatives or employers are saying to you to see how valuable and systematic you are to each other. Dont be afraid to discuss, ask questions, because only a full conversation brings real benefits.

- Keep your promises. If you promised to do a task - do it, even if you got another job in another company, because otherwise you look unprofessional.

- Don't be afraid to express your opinion if you feel that certain conditions or suggestions are unacceptable to you.

- Try to maintain a more solid style of clothing (especially when it comes to office work positions).
