Your Skill Set Will Differentiate You, Learn to Understand It
Most company’s who post jobs have the mindset that the perfect candidate is always going to respond, that’s not always the case. Companies may be getting a laundry list of responses but most of them are from candidates who are not qualified for the position. To avoid being part of that statistic, you want to make sure that your skill sets listed on your resume indicate that you have a solid understanding of why you are the right person for the job you are applying for.
The better your skill set matches the job posting you are applying for, the better the recruiter can place you in the appropriate job you are applying for. Using a Staffing agency is a great way to search for jobs, especially if you come to fully understand your skill set listed on your resume. The better you understand your skill set and communicate to the recruiter, the easier it is for your recruiter to match you with the perfect job you are searching for.
Prepare For Your Interview
Start by researching the company you are interviewing for, utilize the online platforms to the fullest potential. Visit the company website, search the history and facts about the company, company culture, mission, vision and values and try to understand the company before walking in for an interview. Prepare yourself by researching interview questions and planning your answers, you can even practice with a friend until you feel confident. Employers will become more aware that there is no excuse for the lack of preparation in 2019.
Always Send a Follow Up
Employers and hiring managers are sometimes performing multiple interviews a day, so it’s always a good idea to follow up. The follow up not only reminds the hiring manager who you are in a stack of papers or online applications, but it also demonstrates your communication skills and shows the employer that you have enthusiasm about the company and the position.
