The main reason hiring managers aren’t calling you to interview is found in the ‘previous experience’ section of your online application. I attended resume workshop last month that opened my eye’s on how much weight this part of the application has on the hiring process. What I learned is simple.
First, a job title, employer name, with no work skills under each job say’s there’s nothing special about you and a safe way to guarantee your application gets automatically sent to the online trash bin.
Hiring managers are not going to waste time trying to figure out if your worth calling back for an interview if there’s no info the application that shows you can do the job. Besides, there’s another 100 applications behind yours then can easily flip to and find the person they need.
Second, ‘relevant’ job skills, experience, and workplace accomplishments always Win! Quantify your skills and accomplishment for even better results Example:
Experienced typist.. should read… Typing 60 WPM
Provided excellent customer service… should read… Implemented a payment process that increased my total daily transactions by 20% and decreased customer waiting time by 10 mins to help ensure department 100% Customer Satisfaction and Retention goals.
There’s tons of articles online you can look up for tips on how to add more value to your skills and experience info. Make time to read up on a few strategies or attend a career workshop and learn how to make changes that will instantly improve your job search results.
What’s wrong with my resume?
Thank you for this vital piece of information, but let me ask you this, once i have made these changes to my resume and i keep getting the same results, what is the next step?
For many of applicants, their skills are way outdated. Go online to one of those free certification websites and update your training in computers and the latest software, at least. Most resumes I've seen, have education and training that is so old it is no longer relevant to today's job market. Many of free certification websites offer training and certifications that are verifiable to employers. You should take some of these free certifications and add them to your resume if your training is outdated or you never had it to begin with. Also, there are many low cost programs to certify you in different things such as manufacturing or healthcare. Try them, you will get a good education out of it.
