I get calls all the time asking if I’ll take a look at someone’s resume. The answer is no. I don’t write resumes; other people are way better at that. I do offer my friends some tips I’ve used to get hired during a recession before.
But first, I ask this question: Can you send me three job descriptions for the job you want?
While I know most job postings suck (I built a company fixing it), there’s still crucial information buried in all that bullshit.
Four Lessons Every Job Seeker Should LEARN Before SEARCHING Job descriptions
That’s why I’ve taken all the lessons learned writing thousands of job postings and translated them into 4 tips I know can give candidates a competitive advantage during the application process.
I asked all of you if you wanted to see a copy on LinkedIn and Twitter, and it was a big YES, so here it is – the simple job description breakdown every candidate needs to know before they apply to a job.
Watch this video if you’ve ever looked at a job description and wondered, “what are they really looking for? What’s most important?” These simple, free tactics will help recruiters find your resume and move you to the interview faster.
I’m also presenting this information in 30 minute and 1 hour webinars for job seekers. If you know a group who could benefit from that presentation, email me – katrina at threeearsmedia.com. With over 30 million job seekers on the market, every share could reach new people who need this advice.
Bonus: I’d really appreciate it!
