What jobs should one apply for?

In a recently launched Facebook group called “Entrepreneurs for Pokhara” – the most popular tourist destination in Nepal – a girl posted asking help for finding a job. She also complained that she is bored having to stay at home doing nothing. It is good first step that she took trying to reach out to people asking if they have a job opening. However, this is the advice that I have for those who want a successful job application.

Ask yourself “Would I hire myself for this job?”. If the answer is Yes, then it is a good fit. However, if the answer is a No, then you are applying for the wrong job in the first place. You can look at your fit from two perspectives: technical and cultural. Figuring out what the most important factor is for the job that you are applying for between technical and cultural fit will also help you decide your chances of getting the job.
