Both sides have a need. Companies need a solid employee and employees are looking for a meaningful opportunity.

Hiring is tough for companies, even though they seldom talk about it. Recognize your value and bring your best professional self to determine if a role is right for YOU.

This is a very common question you can prepare ahead of time to reduce any nerves you may have before an interview.

And, just to be clear, strengths are: business skills you have…that you’re pretty good at…as determined by you. That’s it.

Have 3 different skills ready to go along with an example for each to really help illustrate why each skill is a strength and how you’ve been able to use it in your past experience.

Also, make sure each skill you choose is RELEVANT for the role you are interviewing for so the interviewer can easily make the connection between your past experience and the current job opening.

This may sound obvious to some of you, but make sure you actively PROJECT your voice when speaking with recruiters, HR professionals, or hiring managers during phone interviews.

Not everyone is great on the phone, and that’s okay. This simply means you need to consciously dial up the volume so your excitement and interest about the role and talking about your past comes across well.

Don’t worry about speaking too loudly (chances are you won’t), so go a little over and above your normal volume. Besides, if you are too loud, they will simply lower the volume on their phone. No big deal.

Remember, for these interviews, the interviewers cannot see you, so your eye contact and hand gestures are meaningless (although definitely smile as that will come through in your tone).

To help you stand out among other applicants, you must up the volume and inflect your voice to showcase your enthusiasm and personality for the company and the role.

This is WHY you are NOT invited for any job interview!

You respond to job ads all day long but NEVER hear a word back!

Almost every day I hear from clients: Roland, I constantly apply for jobs, but nothing! What's wrong with me?

Nothing WRONG with you! When you understand the rules of the job search game, you will be a better player.

These are the main reasons why YOU are not getting invitations for #jobinterviews:

Your CV doesn't tailor for a job, role, industry and sector Recruiters can't see the value you could bring to the company You send your CV without a tailored cover letter You mainly rely on using job boards for your job search Your CV doesn't pass the Applicant Tracking System due to lack of keywords and document formatting You are not following up each of your applications You have no online presence or 'bad online reputation' You left a bad first-impression during the phone screening You are not building relationships with HR managers and recruiters You still believe that simply hitting the 'Apply' button on the screen will be enough Did I miss anything? Anything you would add?
