Getting a Job!

Cold Hard Fact: Getting a job…the job you want…is TOUGH!  (and it’s getting more difficult day by day).

So here’s the question….. Since getting a job is so difficult, what can you do to make yourself different? What makes you…YOU? Think about it for a second. What makes “insert your name here” unique and why would I want to hire you? What can you bring to the position?

Your assignment is to read the article from the following link http://blog.ziprecruiter.com/2013/04/03/stand-out-in-your-job-search/

In your response, answer the essential question, “What can I add to my resume that makes me stand out?” AND “What will I do after my next interview to ensure I’ve made an impression by following up?”

  1. In my resume I could add any unique volunteer experience I’ve had whether it’s related to the job or not. This will show that I have compassion in other areas than just with animals. After my next interview I will send a letter as the article said or find a creative way to follow-up depending on how the interview goes and what was talked about most.

    1. In my resume I could add more community service work like at Habitat For Humanity or The Humane Society. After my next interview I always find that a simple phone call goes a long way.

  2. In my resume, I could add any volunteer work I’ve done, the more I have to offer from my resume, the more I will stand out beyond the other applicants. I have sent letters or called the employers just like the article said to, so I know that those as follow-ups work, because each time I did it, I got the job instantly.

  4. To make me stand out in my resume I could include unique things about myself such as the sports I play and activities I am a part of. After my next interview I will send a letter to the manager of the company expressing my feelings on how the interview went and so on.

  5. In my resume I can include unique experiences and skills to help improve it. After my interview I can send a physical letter in the mail instead of a common email to follow up so that I stand out from the rest.
