Traditional Resume Is Not Enough In 2017
The U.S. added 27,000 jobs in January. The official unemployment rate is up a bit to 4.8%.
More Americans are looking for a job.
If you want your resume to catch the eye of an employer, you have to be creative.
Here are a few ways a job seeker hopes their resume will stand out from the pile:
Job seekers can incorporate the exact key phrases that are in the job description and their skills, titles, and certifications that match the position’s needs.
Job seekers can include their skills and experience that are relevant to the position they are applying for.
Job seekers can have a friend spell, grammar, and punctuation check their resume before submission.
All that is great but still not enough to get your resume noticed in 2017.
More and more employers say a traditional resume doesn’t provide enough information for them to assess whether someone is a good candidate for the job.
So how do you make an employer see more of you?
One way to help your resume get attention and land an interview is to make a video resume.
A video resume is a great way for job seekers to showcase their abilities beyond the capabilities of a traditional paper resume. The video resume allows prospective employers to see and hear applicants, and get a feel for how candidates present themselves.
Job searching is very competitive nowadays; you’ll need a video resume to catch the eye of the employer in 2017. Job seekers can register for their FREE Job Seeker profile, complete their profile, upload their video resume and increase chances of landing that dream job.
