Hey there Job Hunter,
Would you teach maths the same way to…
Kids at kindergarten, in high-school, or college students?
Of course you wouldn’t.
Each of these groups will require a totally different approach.
Each of these groups has different needs.
The same holds true for when you’re looking for a job.
No matter what industry or niche you are working in.
One of the biggest resume mistakes I see people make?
They don’t structure their interview for a specific job.
You need to tailor your resume to match your target market.
If you want to have any chance of succeeding and nailing down that coveted interview, never forget this.
You can find out a lot about the company you’re applying for from the internet.
You want as few surprises as possible.
You definitely want to do your homework on the company you are applying to.
You need to tailor a different resume specifically targeted at each company you apply to.
Want to appear as the perfect employee?
Then you must specifically rebrand your application and resume to the company you’re applying to.
Research is key…
There are a lot of ways that you can research the company that you plan to apply to.
Use Internet Research or Never Catch Their Eye
Search for info that motivates the company.
What terminology do they use?
Find what they’re doing and focus on it.
Use Personal Observation
Watch the company.
Visit their location.
Discover information that you can use for your resume and exploit it!
Take notes on your impression of the company.
How can you make it better?
How did you feel about the receptionist? Polite? Helpful?
Use The Phone To Research The Company
Use the mystery customer tactic.
Was the process smooth?
Could you improve it?
If they sell a product, and you can afford it, buy it. Test the process.
Things to consider when calling your perspective company.
Ask for the hiring manager.
You probably won’t get them…
Whoever you get on the phone…ask as many questions as you can.
Get as much information as you can.
Be sure you take notes so you can remember what to focus on in your resume later.
What type of person are they looking for?
Be sure you write down everyone’s name that you talk to and what they said. This information can be handy in an interview later.
Ask for an explanation of the job.
If you can start a conversation, do so.
If your skill set doesn’t match. Walk away. There’s no point in wasting your time if you’re not qualified.
Tell them you would like an interview and ask them how they want the resume submitted.
