Just give a thought, Ask for Yourself, Think of the bottlenecks, Question Yourself on what you are lagging at!!
Basis My Experience, I am herewith presenting a Few Basic Tips and Suggestions that will be pretty helpful during your Shortlisting / Interview Process:
Ø Resume: It's Just a Page of content but it has the power to change your fate!!
a. Use a Constructive and Organized Template.

Ø Job Portals: It’s a career Portal That helps You find jobs and aids employers in their quest to locate ideal candidates!!
a. Make Sure Your Portfolio is fed with Complete End to End details
b. Mention all the keywords about your Job Role and Your Responsibilities You carried out in your Previous Organization.
Ø Skills: It's an ability to act. What matters the most is how effectively you are going to use it!!
a. Both Soft Skills and Domain-Specific Skills are equally important. Never Include the Skills in your resume if you are not good at the same.
b. Here is a big question that would be rolling in your mind!! What skills should I develop? How Will I know that the Particular Skill, Software, Tool, or Language is in Demand?
It's Pretty Simple, Go through the Job Portals of Various Companies and Check the Domain You want to start your career in. Keep track of Roles and Responsibilities, Skill, Tools, and Software Requirements Which are Domain-Specific and then Work on them.
c. Nevertheless It’s always better to Learn New things even though if they are not domain-specific.
