So remember to make your resume visually appealing while adhering to “at-a-glance” format. Very important, alot of resumes are first scanned by computer programs. Use keywords from the job description to help your resume rise to the top and do not forget to highlight where you have added value such as improving efficiency, reducing downtimes, or managing a key initiative. This will help hiring manager determine their return on investment in hiring YOU.
It is important to practice with a friend or in front of a mirror before getting in front of the hiring manager. Think and research some predictable interview question such as
“HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT OUR COMPANY?”
“TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF”
“WHAT IS YOUR MOST SIGNIFICANT PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENT?”
WHAT ARE YOU WEAKNESSES?”
It also important, to prepare someone asking “DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?” You should always have questions prepared to ask. This allows you to steer the conversation to the hiring manager to understand their company culture, what it takes to succeed, and their wants are if you are hired. Furthermore, this helps you expand on you top skills, qualifications, and attributes. By following these steps you should feel more comfortable in your job search. If you feel that your job search has stalled, do not give up what you should do is assess your strategy.
