Definitely feeling lower about myself during the job search. I know I have great qualifications, but the lack of wins and the overwhelming nature of online job searching is hurting my confidence.

Many employers use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) when it comes to their hiring practices. An ATS automatically filters out resumes that don’t fit certain criteria based on their keywords and information listed.

So, there's a good chance that a hiring manager may not even SEE your resume once it's been submitted... 😨

To help improve your #jobsearch, we have 3 free and effective ATS resume templates that you can use today! Take a look!

If you've ever been asked the question, “tell me about yourself” in a job interview, you know it can sometimes trip you up!

Even though it sounds like it should be the easiest question they ask, knowing how to respond the most effective and appropriate way can be nerve wracking.

In this article, we talk about how to answer the "tell me about yourself" interview question and even provide examples!

If you are looking for a job and want to get hired fast, make sure you aren't making these three mistakes:

  1. Using one resume for every job. You should have a tailored resume for each position you are applying for. (You can learn more in our Getting Hired Resource Center.

  2. Applying to fake jobs. Unfortunately, there are a lot of job scams out there, make sure you know the signs of a phony job listing!

  3. Not preparing for the interview. Ask a family member or friend to conduct a mock interview with you and review some top interview questions!

What are some other common job search mistakes people should avoid?? Comment below!

Have you realized that you may be a bit overqualified at your current job? Here are some tips to help you through.

  1. Ask for more responsibilities
    There's nothing worse than feeling bored at work. Ask your manager or supervisor for additional duties or responsibilities. You may be surprised with what you are offered to take on! This could help you add some excitement into your days AND give you some resume-boosting experience.

  2. Extend a helping hand to fellow coworkers
    If you notice that a coworker is always frazzled and overwhelmed with too many tasks, see if you can help out. You may be able to work on new projects and even learn a new skill or two.

  3. Network, network, network
    Never underestimate the power of making connections. Networking with others - those inside your company, clients, friends of friends, etc. - can help you gain insights into other industries and positions that could help you down the line! You never know who you may meet, you could unwittingly make a career-changing connection!

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

What would YOU add to this list?
