Think about it, hiring managers and recruiters are busy people.

Help them help you.

Make it easy for them to connect the dots of your candidacy to the open requisition.

Recruiters see the job descriptions from a very macro level to vet you properly.

Hiring managers will focus on the technicalities.

Impress all these personalities that come into play when hiring.

1๏ธโƒฃ Internalize and visualize what you want to do. What tickles your belly, gets you excited at the opportunity?

2๏ธโƒฃ Go look at 5 job descriptions and highlight all of the skills and tasks mentioned that you can perform.

3๏ธโƒฃ Add the skills into the skills section of your resume.

4๏ธโƒฃ Take those tasks and convert them into very matter-of-fact statements on your resume that focuses on your onus of that task. Make it personal. Show them that not only can you handle the task, but you have before, and here was the action-result of you accomplishing said task. Your operational impact.

5๏ธโƒฃ Rinse and repeat until you’ve landed the role you’ve been craving.

Isn’t life too short?

Sacrifices? Sure.

Satisfaction? Absolutely!

Not everyone can afford the luxury to do so, but when that window opens up, be ready to chomp at the bit.

Time to make a change if you think you can! The hardest part is always starting.

Get hungry.

Get motivated.

Take action!

Let’s get going.

And I’m here to help if you need someone who does this all day.
