Standing out in a Tough Job Market

Standing out in a Tough Job Market

Any employer recruiting right now will tell you, one job posting equates to around 100 resumes flooding your inbox. So how can you stand out? What will grab an employer’s attention?

1. Make sure your file can be opened. I would be willing to bet that most places do have Microsoft, but just in case save your resume in .rtf. I know my new laptop is equipped with Vista and word 2007, but I have yet to upgrade all the computers of the office…

2. Have a professional email. It’s hard for me to take someone seriously if their email looks like something that should have been sent to my spam mail. Your_name@gmail.com is a good start.

2. Keep your resume simple and efficient. One page is about all that can keep my attention – this is especially important for someone who has just graduated or has had a wide variety of experience. Employer’s look for transferable skills, so list relevant work experience. Showcase the skills you have that an employer would find valuable to their specific field.

4. Proof Read. Don’t rely on spell check alone – it doesn’t have an option for “does this sound intelligent.” Reread and reread and have everyone you know read.

5. Key words and design. Many employers or staffing agency’s pull resumes into a database. If you are applying to a job that has a list of qualifications and responsibilities try using the same language to describe your past accomplishments. Your contact information should be together at the top so a “grabber” tool can easily file all of your information.

Should I send a cover letter?
My opinion? Yes. A cover letter lets me know that someone has done some research on the company and wants to be noticed. It should be kept simple, but supply a good introduction and highlight why you and the employer would specifically be a match. If you are applying for something outside your past experience or education or you are relocating, this is where I would give the explanation.

There are plenty of resources online for writing resumes and cover letters for all levels of experience and industries. It’s hard enough if you don’t have a ton of experience or educational background, so don’t catch yourself getting disqualified for something simple and controllable.

May Grads 2009 – is there hope?

Jobs for May Grads 2009

For many May grads this year the excitement, pride, and celebration of finally finishing has been smeared with anxiety and trepidation due to the lovely state of our economy.

As a small business owner, I have had the pleasure of interviewing some of these May grads for my Entry Level positions. I have asked most all of them how they feel about competing with the umpteen May grads of 2009 and of course all the others that have recently been forced to find new careers. Their answers for the most part include some description of being scared out of their minds…

So what is the answer to finding employment as an individual graduating in a recession?

Find something that will get your foot in an industry. It might not include all the glamorous projects you had hoped for as a freshman, but it’s something that you can learn from – its FREE education! I personally would rather be an assistant to someone who has the job I want then work at the local coffee shop because my dream job wasn’t hiring.

Open your mind. Look into industries you hadn’t originally considered. Sales shouldn’t be a four letter word to college grads anymore. Sales positions are always in demand and can provide good income if you have some personality.

Summer work. I know it isn’t as exciting, but taking a summer hourly wage position could give you the money to pay the bills – and the time to freelance or volunteer! Look for some temp work to ease your mind this summer and give your free time to something that will help build your resume. I’m sure any company out there could use free writing, graphic design, or coordination.

Ask for advice. Ask family members or people you know who are doing well for themselves about the industry they are in and how they got started. I would, however, beware of the advice encouraging you to travel or rush back into school – this tends to be an easier decision, but will increase your debt and when you are done who’s to say the economy will be any better…

Finally, my message to May grads this year is: Relax. Despite what people have told you, your first job out of college does not determine your future. According to the US dept. of Labor, the average tenure at a position for an adult between 25 and 34 is only 2 years. Meaning, recession or not, you will have multiple jobs in your life. Gain some experience and try to enjoy it!
