Why a Cover Letter is So Important
Job seekers often ask whether it is important to write a cover letter. Despite this, many of them will not approach the job of writing one very seriously, often treating it as little more than an afterthought. The resume is what consumes their thoughts, and they spend the bulk of their time and effort on this. Meanwhile, the cover letter itself is cast to one side, considered to be merely a necessary addition but one which is not really all that important.

The Shocking Truth About Job Descriptions; Recruiter Reveals It All
It’s time to reveal some of the real meanings and underlining messages that are embedded within Job Descriptions by HR Generalists, Recruiters and Business Owners. Undoubtedly you have seen many of these little key phrases that may sound professional, but the truth behind these Job Description phrases may shock you. I’ve included the 20 most popular phrases that I have seen and even written for some Jobs.
How To Tailor A Resume To A Job Description
Tailoring your Resume towards Job descriptions will immensely improve your chances of getting through the recruitment process. You differentiate yourself from the vast competition by simply relating a few bullet points towards the qualifications, requirements and tasks that are on the job description, which in turn will make your resume relevant to the Job Position and improve your chances of landing an interview.
How to get an internship
As a recruiter I love seeing internships on a resume. It shows me that this person didn’t just party for four years or simply chose a major because they wanted to have the same classes as their friends. Instead this person invested their free time or their summers and possibly even worked for free in order to build up relevant experience that would complement their chosen degree. This is the type of person that I will hire without much thought; he/she has proven to me that they will invest as much time into my business as they did in themselves.
How to enjoy your Job Search
Enjoying your job search may seem a bit counter-intuitive because it is usually accompanied by stress, frustration, and despair. I want you to take a deep breath and take a few steps back. I know that we all have bills and worries and people in our life that we need to support. I want you to let it all go and clear your mind. This may be easier said than done because what we do is immediately try to jump back into the rat race. This ultimately leads us to less desired position with less desired pay and we start the same “I hate my Job” cycle again which has brought us to this place, to begin with.
What Do I Put on My Resume?
It’s pretty much the commonest of common knowledge that finding a job in the current climate is very difficult. I personally have been through this process
in recent months and so I know exactly how a lot of people reading this will be feeling at this precise moment in time. However, it’s a sad fact that there are no sure-fire ways to get yourself back into employment and so the biggest piece of advice I can offer is to keep persevering no matter how bleak things may seem right now.
Three Practical Suggestions For Your Interview Preparation
Succeeding an interview is either extremely easy or out of this world difficult experience, depending on how much practice and time you put into the important day. No one can tell for sure whether or not you are going to succeed with your interview. What you can be sure though is that you did not make any mistakes. The last thing you want is to realize after, and sometimes, during the interview that you have made a mistake.
How to get into IT Career?
You should already know that IT is the hot career right now. You may not agree with us in thinking that the work is glamorous or particularly exciting but you can agree that the market for IT professionals is. This industry is hands-down the number one field of 2013 in the amount of job growth and pay increases it is forecasted to witness now and over the next seven years. This industry requires more certifications than formal education and with the right accreditation of experience you will easily break into IT.
How I landed an Interview at a Tech Start-Up
I wanted to really put into practice what I teach here on this site and really prove that it works. I just hate how recruiters and HR Generalists are really quick to give “Top 10 resume tips” or general career and job search advice when in reality they would have a hard time finding a job themselves. I find it that most guru’s or experts don’t have a touch with actual realty and an intelligent insight on the struggles that people actually go through on a daily basis. You can literally read 10 different articles and they will all say the same thing, mostly irrelevant fluff that won’t help you find a job.
How to work with Recruiters effectively
A recruiter usually has around 50 to 100 open positions that they are trying to fill at any given time. This means that they can never have enough candidates, the more the better I always say. The problem is that most candidates don’t understand how a recruiter thinks and functions.
A recruiter cannot find you a job!
Working With Staffing Agencies To Improve Your Resume
Staffing agencies are a great way to find employment quickly and build up your experience especially if you are a recent graduate or want to diversify your experience. There are some draw backs to working with employment agencies which we will touch on but in my opinion the risks outweigh the benefits greatly. Not all staffing agencies work the same way and a few ones tend to give the staffing industry a bad rep.
