What does your job search look like? Do you wake up each morning, check your email, search job boards, complete online applications, check your email again, network with friends, and wait? Are you being held hostage by lack of results? Have you ever thought to yourself, “There must be a better way”?
When traditional job search methods don’t work, you begin to feel stuck. The methods that worked five years ago simply don’t work in the current job market. The approach companies use to hire new employees has changed dramatically. This means that the savvy job seeker will change the way they approach the job search as well. To get noticed you have to be more create with your approach. If you are trying to find a job in medical sales, demonstrate your ability to get past the gatekeeper by sending your resume to a hiring manager.
Take the time to evaluate the key elements in your job search.
How confident are you that your resume is the best it can be? (How do you compare to the other 299 people submitting resumes?)
Who is seeing your resume? (Less than 5% of resumes submitted online make it to a hiring manager’s desk.)
Are you getting interviews but no offers? (If you hear the same excuses more than twice you should evaluate your interview skills.)
Everyone faces job search challenges. Don’t let your challenges come between you and your dream job.
