6 Resolutions That Will Land You a Job in 2015 (read it on usnews.com)
Why Read It? Because maybe it's time to rethink your job search approach.
- Focus on tailoring your resume for the jobs that you really want, rather than submitting a generic resume to as many positions as possible.
- Use your cover letter to reveal new information about your qualifications, explain why you are interested in that specific role, and show a little personality!
- The interviewer and company culture is a good gauge of whether the job is right for you - after all, the position could look great on paper, but once you're in the environment, you may learn otherwise.
- Help a friend out! If you have connections at a company they are applying to, reach out to them, or if you see a job that's fitting for them, pass it along.
"Finding ways to help other job seekers isn't just a kind thing to do; it'll also make you feel good, pay forward any help you've received yourself and – here's the self-interested part – put you front and center on the radar screen of people in your network, which can only help in the long-run."
