Job Seeking Tips:
-Pay a professional to write your resume. You're worth it! You paid for college. This is a fraction of the cost.
You're worth it!
-Ask for $5,000 - $10,000 more than what you expect to make.
You're worth it!
-Don't let recruiters submit your resume to a job opening w/o
your permission. If a company receives multiple resumes from different
recruiting companies they usually dismiss the application. This is because
of legal disputes they might face. Play it safe and ask your recruiter to
call you before they submit your resume for any job opening. All good
recruiters will do this anyway.
-Use two or three good recruiters and no more.
Be selective. In demand candidates often get calls from dozens of
recruiters. Two or three good recruiters are more then sufficient.
Ask your recruiter what their client base is like. If they have a lot of
clients that you are interested in working for, then use them.
-Keep a list of recruiters who contact you. This
may come in handy for later use. You are likely to have several
different jobs in your career. Get used to it.
-Some job sites are overloaded with over a million on-line
resumes. In today's job market, most companies don't have time to
sift through all of these resumes. Instead recruiters will seek out the
best on-line candidates and contact you. If you don't want to be
contacted by a recruiter post to company job postings only. Be
-Be proactive and search for companies in your area.
This is really easy and it is probably the best way to get noticed. If you
want to work for a specific company, I guarantee you can get yourself an
interview. Use the Yellow
Page Search to get the phone# of companies that fit your profile.
Call and ask for human resources. Talk to someone and tell them you
are interested in working for that company. This person in hr
becomes your contact. Get a fax# or email address and send your resume
directly to that contact. Follow up with a phone call a week
later asking them to set up an interview.
-Network. Have an employee of a company which you
would like to work for submit your resume to human resources. Call the
human resources department a week after your resume was submitted. Don't
rely on your friend to call hr do it yourself.
-If you are a foreign immigrant or your grammar is not
perfect have a professional write your resume. This is the only money
a job seeker should spend when searching for a job. Aside from a new suit
that is! If possible have an experienced professional in your job
field proof read your resume.
-Don't pay to 'blast' your resume to job posting sites.
Some supposed job sites will offer you a 'blasting' service. Some charge
huge fees. They are taking advantage of the job seeker. The sites
which they submit your resume to are worthless.
