How to Get Noticed in an Ocean of Resumes:
Chances are if you're reading this, you've been looking for a job. Nothing seems to be coming through and you've applied to everything you could find online. You might be wondering if your skillset is right for the work of the future. When will the unemployment rate finally, go down? What should I do now?
At Recruit Caribbean we're here to help! We have a few tips that will help get you noticed and get you an interview in no time. Whether it’s for your first job or searching for some time, it is not an easy task. If you are getting discouraged by rejections or even --no responses, try following these steps and see what happens:
• Polish any lacking points on your resume. Ensure it doesn't look the same as everyone else's. Include keywords or key phrases from the job posting. Anything that the recruiting manager might be looking for, so they are aware that this is someone who wants their job (and knows what they are talking about!).
• Take a break from work. This advice is frequently provided to people who have been jobless for six months or longer, but it equally applies if you are looking for the ideal job. Taking a long break from your regular routine gives employers the opportunity to see what other suitable applicants may have missed out on by focusing solely on how terrific and talented you are.
• Refresh Your social media accounts. The new resume is social media. No one has time to sift through a stack of pages full of out-of-date information when they can simply look at your recent posts to get a sense of what you're interested in. Post it if you want people to know how passionate you are about something. Make sure all of your accounts include clear photographs or videos that demonstrate who you "truly" are so that employers don't have to wait until after hiring day to discover that their newest worker appears to be always dissatisfied at his desk (even though this might be true).
• Use it wherever! Begin to develop a network of people who can assist you in getting your CV in front of the relevant people. Find out where such opportunities are by doing some study. So, what if they're in another country? Make a decision about what you want to do. The more precise you can be, the better. When you see it, you'll know!
• Make yourself stand out from the throng (if everything else fails). Show off your individuality and who you are! List some of your interests and activities to demonstrate that you're more than simply another worker bee hunting for their next paycheck.
• Final tip: Utilizing just 20 minutes a day to take care of yourself and to learn something new is vital, you're going to find that employers will be drawn in by your attitude towards life. Treat your interview skills the same way! Make sure your voice and tone are always professional. Confidence is the key to succeeding in the workplace. Display it when you are applying, interviewing, and after you have got the job!
