You want your enthusiasm to shine through. Introduce yourself, relentlessly, but you do not want to draw to much attention to yourself.

DON'T BLOCK YOUR BLESSINGS! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...

We unknowingly block our blessings more than we know it. However, here's 5 - Undeniable TIPS you need to know:

#1. You are being blessed, to be a blessing to others. #2. Blessings are transferred to you, and through you, for a greater cause. #3. If you can't be trusted to release a blessing, how can you be trusted to receive one. #4. Open heart, open mind. Closed heart, closed mind. #5. Each one, teach one, then, everyone wins.

Power Principle: (Rom. 12: 2)

Give somebody an encouraging word, and expect nothing in return, then everything else will fall-in-place.

An unforeseen blessing will track you down.

BELIEVE YOU CAN [...] YOU CAN! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...(MUST READ w/o FAIL.)

If you keep believing trivial things in circulation, they can prevent you from getting ahead in life.

Among the global doors of opportunities, there are two main doors to never forget.

No. #1. The door which takes you into life. No. #2. The door which takes you out of life. The door you want is not mentioned, rather, illustrated below: The "Revolving Door."

No matter what happens, this door will always revolve and resolve for your consistent success. Take it^

Believe You Can, [then] You Can.

I Believe You Can...!

BY SPECIAL REQUEST: YOU'RE COMING BACK! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...

Yes, you've been through some things in life that wasn't meant for you, and there was no way to really stop it. Your strength comes in knowing that...

No. #1. It wasn't your fault. No. #2. It should have never fell in your lap. No. #3. The pains are still there, and they're real. No. #4. Open your eyes my friend, it's a new day for you.

Write these words down, and put it in your pocket:

  • "I'm hurt, but I'm not halted"
  • "I'm bent, but I'm not broken"
  • "I'm damaged, but I'm not done"
  • "I'm bitter, but I'm getting better"
  • "I'm depleted, but I'm NOT defeated"

I'm getting ready, because my time is NOW! Then, everything else will fall-in-place.

Have You Heard Back From the Employer? I thought this might help better understand why? This article I found will help you better understand the reason. Don't let it get you down!

People often wonder why they never hear anything back after they hit ‘send’ on the email with a resume attached or on the on-line job application. If you’re very lucky, you might have a preliminary email exchange with a recruiter and then never hear from them again. It’s a depressing experience and one which also casts a shadow on the hiring company’s reputation. So why does it happen? Is it you, is it them, or is it just something every candidate must prepare for in the hiring process?

An oft-cited recruiter’s complaint is that as many as 50 percent of people applying for a given job simply aren’t qualified. Adding to the challenge, most large companies – and many smaller ones – use talent-management software to screen resumes, weeding out up to 50 percent of applicants before a human even looks at a resume or cover letter. The deck is definitely stacked against the job seeker. So how do you breakthrough?

Here are my top 5 reasons you’re not hearing back after applying for a job, with five suggestions for ways to avoid the resume black hole.

  1. You really aren’t qualified. If a job description specifies a software developer with 3-5 years of experience and you’re a recent graduate with one internship, it’s unlikely you’ll get a call. Avoid disappointment – don’t apply for jobs for which you lack qualifications. Most job descriptions are written with very specific requirements. Yes, the company is trying to find the most qualified candidate; yes, they are trying to weed people out. It’s not personal, it’s business.

  2. You haven’t keyword-optimized your resume or application. Job descriptions are salted with keywords specific to the skills or attributes the company seeks in applicants. A close read of the job description is a necessity, as is keyword-optimizing your resume and cover letter, if you’re using one, or email. If the job description lists words in a certain order, e.g. a list of programming languages required, use the same order in your resume.

  3. Your resume isn’t formatted properly. You might think distinctive formatting will set your resume apart, but automated programs don’t care if a document is pretty. Help a machine out. Be consistent in formatting – consider using separate lines for former employer, job title, and years worked.

64 Action Verbs That Will Take Your Resume From Blah to Brilliant 4. Your resume is substantially different from your online profile. LinkedIn, Dice and other online profile sites can be useful tools, so it‘s important to make sure they match what’s on your resume. This may seem to be a contradiction – in #1 I advised keyword optimization – but it’s really common sense. Jobs worked, employers, years on the job and other details should match. The subtext here is always tell the truth.

  1. The company received 500 resumes for one job posting, and yours was 499th in. Looking for a job is a job. Do your research – know which companies you want to work for, organizations where you sense culture fit. Every morning scour the job postings and jump on anything for which you’re qualified (and in which you’re interested.) Being early with your resume or application does matter. Check back often in the first few days to make sure the listing hasn’t changed. Often a company will post a job and halfway through the process change the description.

It’s hard to game the system. Your best bet is still a personal referral, and even that may not be enough to get a call. A guy I know gave his resume to a woman who worked at a company where a good job had been posted. He received an automated email noting his resume had been received but never heard another word. After a month he asked his friend to check with the recruiter. It turned out the job description had changed, but the recruiter never bothered to let the referring employee – or the applicant – know. This isn’t unusual, unfortunately. So what can you do?

How You Can Get Noticed:

  1. Research interesting companies on social media. Find out who the recruiters are and follow them. Many will tweet new postings, so watch their streams and jump on anything for which you are qualified. And if they tweet news saying the company’s had a great quarter, retweet the news with a positive comment.

  2. Consider starting a blog in your area of interest or expertise. It’s a social world; time to build a trail of breadcrumbs leading to you. Include the blog, and links to any especially relevant posts, in your emails to recruiters with whom you’re working.

  3. Get professional help with your resume. Either a resume writer or an SEO expert can help you increase your odds of getting through the talent management software. If you can’t afford this step, read the top career blogs for advice.

  4. If at all possible, don’t wait until you’re out of work to find your next job. I realize for many people this isn’t possible or might even be offensive, but your chances of finding the next job are best when you’re still employed.

  5. Network. Old advice, but still true. Be visible, be upbeat, be informed about industry trends and news in your area of expertise.

Finding a job is tough, no question. I’ve talked to other recruiters who say they only respond to 30 percent of applicants. The odds are good you’ll be in the 60+ percent who hears nothing a lot of the time. Don’t take it personally – it’s not a rejection of you, it’s a reflection of the times. If you don’t hear back, know you’re not alone.
