If there are several applicants for one position, the person with the best qualifications generally gets the job offer.
The Human Resources Office does all the hiring and firing, so that’s the first place to contact if you are looking for a job.
The most effective way to get job interviews is the old adage, “See a guy who knows a guy,” A technique known as “Networking.”
It is important to include every job you ever held when writing a resume.
A job interview is really a sales presentation by the applicant. Therefore, the job seeker must sell his or her personality, potential, strengths, and experience.
Approximately 2% of job seekers are successful in obtaining an interview when responding to a blind ad.
The job application is considered a tool of the employer, while the resume is considered a tool of the job seeker.
