I'm telling you the truth...(Must Read)

SCENARIO: A Fortune 500 Company has been seeking to fill a corporate position for approximately eight (8) months, and to no avail. On this very day Friday, they have interviewed nine(9) persons , and, three(3) others left because of fear. As the long day is winding down, let's listen to the last candidate after he walks in...

Mr. Charles, sir, we have rigorously screened nine(9) candidates ahead of you. Also, we have asked each person a series of the same questions, as we did with you. We would like to present the final question.

Mr. Charles, please tell us..."Why should we hire you for this corporate level position?

Ma'am, and to the board members..."that is why you should hire me for this corporate level position."

FAST FORWARD: As illustrated below, how did Mr. Charles respond to the question, and what did he say, to receive the Handshake of Approval?

LESSONS LEARNED: It's not who you know, or what you know that gets you the job, rather, it's truly who you are that makes the difference!

That's how you get the Handshake of Approval.

I Believe You Can...!

Napa Amtower is the worst place to work. Their delivery vehicles are pieces of crap, always breaking down. The work environment is unsafe, and how they get past OSHA IDN. The upper management can care less about the employees all they care about is the bottom dollar and helping their friends. If this is the way that all Napa stores are run IDN how they have ever stayed in business this long? #wordofadvice #stayaway #NapaAmtowerisunsafe

Work experience The qualifications for a job should be based on which skills, traits, and behaviors are necessary to be successful in the role.

  • Generally, the first thing most people do when they look at a resume is looked at a candidate‚Äôs previous work experience.

A candidate’s work experience can be evaluated as an exact match to the current position (e.g., previous retail experience for a retail associate job) or a related match (e.g., previous experience in a customer-facing role).

Some things to look for in a resume for work experience are accomplishments and signs of career progression such as increasing responsibility.

  • For candidates without any previous work experience, interviewers may want to look for related volunteer experience.

Education Many jobs don’t necessarily require a minimum level of education but as college and university degrees become more and more common these days, education has increased in importance as a qualification.

  • For candidates without a lot of previous experience, interviewers may pay more attention to their education.

Professional certifications fall under the education category and depending on how essential interviewers feel they are, interviewers can look for a candidate’s certifications on their resume.

Skills, knowledge, and competencies A recruiter or hiring managers, they‚Äôre often faced with the choice of whether the skills or knowledge required to do the job successfully can be ‚Äúbought‚ÄĚ or trained on the job.

Evidence of a candidate’s skills, knowledge, and competencies are crucial things to look for in a resume but they can be harder to assess.

The assumption interviewers tend to make is that based on a candidate’s work experience or education, he or she is likely to have gained some of the skills, knowledge, and competencies related to the role.

  • Generally, the shortcut interviewers use here is to look for relevant keywords on a candidate‚Äôs resume for a desired skill or knowledge of a certain procedure.

Once interviewers feel confident that a candidate is likely to possess at least some of these skills required, interviewers can always further assess the candidate's abilities during the interview stage.

Personality and values Although most job postings list desired personality traits and values such as being friendly or a preference for teamwork, assessing a candidate’s personality and values from their resume can be hard to do.

  • Personality and values tend to be related to how well a candidate will fit into a company‚Äôs culture, their work team, and the job itself.

An interviewer can make some guesses about a candidate’s personality from their resume if they include their personal interests.

  • Generally, interviewers tend to use other sources of information to assess personality and values such as the candidate‚Äôs public social media profiles or their behavior during an interview.

The takeaways for what interviewers look for in a resume Here’s a list of what interviewers look for in a resume when screening candidates are:

  • Work experience
  • Education
  • Skills, knowledge, and competencies
  • Personality and values

While work experience and education are relatively straightforward, skills, knowledge, personality, and values can be harder to assess from a resume.

With recent innovations in resume screening technology, it might make more sense for you, the candidate to invest in a resume screening tool that automatically identifies qualified candidates to assist you in preparing your resume for an interview.

This way, you can spend more of your time engaging with them to assess how good of a fit you are for the company, team, and the job itself.

FYI: Resume screening tools typically fit into one of three categories, resume parsers, resume enrichers, and AI resume screening tools. Each of these tools is designed to help talent acquisition teams automate the resume screening process. They can be used in conjunction or individually.

Tip: In order to win the game, you must first understand how to play the game...

I ran across these articles but, while there are a lot of questions about the future of Social Security, the fact is that it is highly unlikely the program will ever actually run out of money. The federal government founded the Social Security program during the Great Depression. The program provides money to people after they’ve retired.

Will Social Security Run Out? Here's What You Need to Know

Right now I am pretty pissed. Kroger has signs up in the lobby about the fact that they're hiring, but, when I apply, I AM discriminated against. How? Not by Ethnicity/ Color, but by LOOKS. I am NOT tattooed; a pot smoker; an alcoholic; I am not retarded mentally, and I am not ghetto. I am an attractive, older, black woman and I have experience in the warehouse and secretarial skills, as well as stock and cashiering skills. I have Vendor Receiver experience and I'm being told that they "don't need anyone right now," which is a LIE. Just because I don't have kids, and because I don't have a Probation Officer to report to, Kroger won't hire me? I am sick of this, and I WILL dig deeper into this even though it's the first time I've ever had problems with getting a job based on how I look. #jobsearch #wordofadvice #ageism #Bidendoesn'tmeanbetter.

Monday, a friend of mine told me that he was laid off from a major financial company because the company decided to outsource the jobs to India. I told him about jobcase and I sent him a few joblinks.

Yesterday, I reached out to a former client who works for a financial company and she told me to email her his resume , which happened in the next 10 minutes. As I am searching jobs for myself, I am also helping my friend with his job search. I am a firm believer when we help people (even we go through tough times) more doors and opportunities will open to us. #jobsearch #helpafriend #help #outsourcing #unemployment #wordofadvice #behelpful #bekind #beresourceful #keepbelieving #Godwillopendoors #JobcaseroftheDay
