Many myths are prevailing in the business industries which should be eliminated by spreading the truth about them. You may lose many alluring opportunities by believing these myths. So, without further ado, let us dig into them and clear the myths.
Negotiating Salary Package will result in the lowest possible salary
When it comes to negotiating the salary package. Employees think that they have to settle for the lowest price the company is offering. This is a myth that should be removed. You should trust yourself and your talent. You can always negotiate with the highest salary package that the company is offering because your services will benefit them. Stay confident and trust your skills.
A good resume can fit in 2 or 3 pages
You should never count the pages when framing your resume. Just keep it real, appropriate and reflect your skills in it.
Cover Letter is not so important and is just a formality
A Cover letter is extremely mandatory if you want to get hired in a well-established organization. Adding it with your resume confirms that you are serious and want to serve the company.
Considering IQ for hiring employees
This myth is highly prevailing in the market. You should not just hire a workforce depending upon their scores, educational qualification, and other academic qualities. No doubt it is a boon for companies but you never know which rising star is hidden in the crowd who couldn’t get a high ranking degree but worked hard and learned from experience.
The best example of this myth is when Enron Corporation tried its best to hire all the academic prodigies and even after this step, their company went bankrupt.
You should consider recruiters to hire candidates as they look past the education and test them by their overall skill set.
