When successfully searching for a job, there's a list of "do's" and "don'ts". Here are the top 3 things you should NEVER do when searching for a job.
Never use a 'one size fits all' resume
Don't use the same resume for every job you are applying for. Instead, customize it for each position by including relevant keywords from the job posting throughout. Customizing your resume will increase your chances of a phone call or an interview!
Never submit a resume/cover letter without proofreading
Always spellcheck! There's no better way to get overlooked by a hiring manager than to send in a resume or cover letter loaded with typos and grammatical errors.
Ask a friend or family member to read your resume — it’s easier for someone else to find errors since they haven’t been staring at the same document for days.
Never forget to follow up
After your interview, always follow up! Set aside a few minutes after your conversation to send a quick thank you email.
Sending a note thanking the interviewer for their time will show that you’re genuinely interested in the position and that you’re a true professional.
