Make sure your resume highlights and draws attention to any experience you have in the industry. Look at job descriptions and the core responsibilities of the positions you're applying for. That's where you'll find the skills employers are looking for in job candidates. By including
the right skills on your resume, you'll stand out to hiring managers and have a better chance of getting your resume past the ATS. It's all about keywords!
Don't underestimate the power of a great first impression. Dress for the interview in professional attire. Even if the job indicates you'll be wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, you need to show respect for the employer by visiting them in clothes that show you are committed to being seen as one who
cares about their appearance and the impact it has on others.
To find a job during the holidays, it's critical you adequately demonstrate your value as a business-of-one and potential employee in the hiring process. How? Well, make sure to quantify your work experience on your resume. Use numbers to showcase your
accomplishments. Clearly state how you'll make or save the company money with your employment. Do this, and you'll easily become one of the top job candidates for the position.
In your disruptive cover letter (and during your job interview), demonstrate how and why you admire the company. Highlight what you love most about their products and services. Give examples of how you have personally used them in your own life with success. The more you can show them you
understand and respect the business, the more likely you'll impress the hiring manager and move forward in the interview process.
After every job interview, always send a thank-you note. It's just the polite thing to do, and you'll score more points with the hiring manager. Even if you get rejected, or never hear back about a position, make sure you send an email thanking the employer for the opportunity and wish
them the best of luck with finding the right job candidate.
