Check out our President, Matt Warzel, on VoiceAmerica’s Career Confidante podcast and listen to Marie Zimenoff and myself talk all things resumes and job hunting! Thanks for your support!
Your client has 6 seconds in front of a recruiter … what do you want them to see?
With an increasing number of applicants for each position, candidates need to connect quickly to what matters to an employer.
Here are a few strategies for making that connection:
1. Start with the end in mind … always. What are the key qualifications for the target roles? What problems are those employers trying to solve?
2. Seek out examples of when the candidate has demonstrated those qualifications or solved those problems.
3. Translate existing experience into the language of the new job and/or employer:
-Keep terms that align and remove those that do not connect.
– Get specific! Highlight accomplishment stories instead of duties and minimize adjectives and descriptors.
-If a project was “successful,” find out how that was measured.
-Use specific stories to demonstrate personal qualities instead of listing “results-oriented leader.”
I’m excited to hear Matt Warzel, CPRW, CIR share his perspective on how
