Get What You Want Out Of Your Job Search!

Are you tired of applying online for job after job with no response from recruiters? Tired of making it to interviews only to not get hired for the job?  Finally land the job but settled for horrible pay and benefits?  You do not have to settle for less. You have the power to get exactly what you want out of your job search. Yes, you really do!  Here are some job search tips and strategies to help you achieve the success you want and deserve:

Resume Tips

  • Make sure your resume is well written and targeted specifically to the types of jobs you are applying for
  • Ensure that your resume is content rich and sells you as the most qualified candidate for the job
  • Be certain that your resume is optimized properly for success in the Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)
  • Use languages in your resume that makes you come alive as the recruiter reads your resume

Cover Letter Tips

  • Your cover letter should effectively complement your resume without regurgitating the resume
  • Keep your cover letter easy to read, short, sweet, and to the point
  • Use the cover letter as a tool to introduce your resume to the reader

Career & Interview Coaching Tips

  • You should prepare in advance to answer all possible questions you could potentially be asked in an interview
  • Be prepared to address possible negative attributes in your resume (this could include employment gaps, etc.)
  • Exude confidence and enthusiasm throughout the interview
  • Make sure you address every point required in the job description, and sell your qualifications for those requirements

Follow Up Tips

  • Always send thank you emails to all interviewers (if you have contact info)
  • Keep your thank you emails short and to the point
  • Do not use your thank you emails to regurgitate your resume, qualifications, or the entire interview
  • Use the email to simply thank them for their time and to let them know that you are excited about the opportunity
  • Conduct follow up tactfully, do not stalk

Salary Negotiation Tips

  • Do your salary research before you interview
  • Assess your worth and the value you bring to the table so you are prepared
  • Ask for the salary you want with confidence, and always leave a little room to negotiate salary
  • Never accept a salary you will not be happy with….unless you really desperately need a pay check
