When looking for that Job…. It should match up with what the recruiters are looking for too.

When looking for that Job….  It should match up with what the recruiters are looking for too.

Often times when we do resumes and make applications for jobs we fall short in the getting what we want out there.  It can be missed by some of the top recruiters… So flip it. Know what it is that they are looking for.  This is why linked in is such a great tool and social media should be part of the process…

Top recruiters are looking with a definite purpose – they do not have the time to go word for word.  If the person does not appear like they are going to fit then more than likely they are not going to fit… So what are the looking for….

Recent article discusses on how the resume should be read.  Seasoned Recruiters spend approximately 30 seconds reading the Resume. These are the things that Recruiters are looking for (read full article here)

Locality – Does the person live by the place the job is at?

Appearance – First impressions are just as important here as they are in person.  It does not mean that it has to over the top with styles and design.  They are looking to see if you are genuine, are you professional

What is your education level – If you took the time to invest in yourself they will think that you take your career serious… so accreditation’s, certificates, awards are important as well.  There is more to personal investment to your career than just your level of education.

What you did lately is not as important as the title held – They want to know what you did on a day to day basis.

What is the “Big” Picture – It’s not just about what you are currently doing as much as the skills you bring to the table.  Chronological order is not always the best route to take – what is your skill set.
