My brother was fired on Friday and landed a new job on Monday.

From five resumes he sent out early on Monday morning, four lead to calls and one of the interviews he had later that day, brought him a new job. It might sound like a short fairy tale with a happy ending, but it isn't as mystical as it sounds. There was no luck, only a measured strategy and a good plan.

Hope this story will help you out!

Can't Recruiters do their jobs anymore?

Recruiters do not even get to see your resume anymore because their software algorithms are not smart enough to convert your thoroughly designed and worded resume into their hiring software tool. So after spending hours doing your resume, they simply ask to fill it out again in their software. What a joke. And no, they do not read your resume at all unless you come up with certain keywords that match their keywords, even if you meet the requirements but use different keywords on your resume.

THis whole process is faulty and every crappy business wants our precious time to fill in the resume AGAIN.

That is what I call improve-worsening.

What are you going to say?

Tell me about yourself. This question makes us cringe a little bit, but every employer will ask you this in some form during an interview. Why? Well because they want to see what YOU bring to their company. You might be wondering (or tempted) to tell your life story and be more personal, but don’t! When an interviewer says, "Tell me about yourself," what he or she really wants to know is how your experience applies to the job you're interviewing for.

Stick to talking about what it is you do or have done as it relates to the job. You can think about some past experiences that are relevant to the job you’re applying for, and select 3 or so strengths you possess which you feel are important to this job. This could be experiences, traits, skills, etc. This will help you let the interviewer know more about yourself, but also cleverly state why you are a good fit for the role. Selling yourself is key, so always be thinking in the back of your mind, “Would I hire myself?” Let’s take a look at an example:

Interviewer: Ok Joe, can you tell me more about yourself?

Joe: I have been working as a stocker for Target for over 2 years. My most recent experience has been writing and keeping track of inventory orders on our database systems. One reason I particularly enjoyed my position were the challenges that went along with it such as anticipating inventory needs. I also loved that I was able to use my organizational skills daily whether it was through taking inventory or rotating stock.

Next, mention your strengths and abilities: Joe: My real strength is achieving goals. I pride myself on following through, maintaining company standards, and meeting deadlines. When I commit to doing something, I make sure it gets done, and on time.

Conclude with a statement about your current situation: Joe: What I am looking for now is a company that values commitment, offers a strong team and a place where my work efforts are valued"

Before you head into the interview PLAN what you are going to say. This little speech is called your elevator pitch. Once you have written it down, practice it at home with family, in front of the mirror, or even consider recording yourself. Get comfortable speaking about yourself and why you are a great fit for the company and your confidence will shine through!

Check out [this video] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kayOhGRcNt4) for some more tips on how to successfully tell employers about yourself.

Good luck! : )

A few interview tips from my recent experience as a hiring manager!

I've been chatting with a lot of candidates this Summer and thought I'd share some #interview #tips for job seekers :)

DO:

  • Highlight your specific role, contributions, and impact even if you were part of a team. It's often easy to talk in general terms and say "we"; but this is the time to showcase why "you" are the right person for this role. Acknowledge teamwork but also highlight your accomplishments.
  • Acknowledge your shortcomings but always show you have the potential to learn or still add value in other ways.

DON'T:

  • Kick off the interview and start asking questions immediately.
  • Assume the interviewer knows your resume well; focus on the experience and skills that are relevant to the role you're applying for.

What other tips would you share with fellow job seekers?
