CRITICAL STEPS TO CAPTURE AN

EMPLOYER'S ATTENTION


  • Millions of people are currently unemployed in the United States.


  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics has the number of unemployed people at 8 million at this time.


  • Therefore, applicants have to make extraordinary efforts to convince potential employers of their need to hire them.


  • The entire process provides opportunities for a potential employee to convince a the employer to make a favorable hiring decision.


  • The following are some critical steps to capture a potential employer’s attention:


1

Create Unique Resume Elements


  • Employers have to go through hundreds and sometimes thousands of resume applications.


  • They are looking for some uniqueness in the batch.


  • The days of the boring resume file name and format are gone.


  • A competitive prospective worker now has to come up with file names …


  • … and formatting elements that grab the person who is sifting through the pile. Exciting resumes will avoid the trash bin.


  • One example is to create a file name such as “your new hire.doc,” that sends a “hire me” subliminal message to the employer.


  • The job seeker should use a layout that isn’t commonplace, as well.


  • Special qualifications, experience and schooling should speak to the potential employer in bold or italic letters.


  • Make sure your resume includes keywords the employer may be looking for.


2

Conduct Company Research


  • Conducting company research is mandatory for a person who is looking for a career rather than a job.


  • Employers want to know that their future employees know and understand the company culture, goals and protocol.


  • The idea is for the applicant to avoid applying to work for a company that may not have the same values that he or she has.


  • Knowing where the company stands in the financial market is good to know, as well.


  • A prospective employee can mention something that he or she has read during the research sessions upon entering the interview.


  • The interviewer will likely be impressed by the person's willingness to learn about the employer.


3

Bring Extras to the Interview


  • Extras are additions to a job interview that stand out from the crowd.


  • Interviewees usually bring their resumes and themselves to the interview.


  • An extra-step interviewee could bring something like a PowerPoint presentation or an infographic that states his or her vision for the future.


  • The extra material may stick in the interviewer’s mind as a reason to hire the applicant.


  • Either of those items will express to the interviewer that the applicant is computer savvy and accustomed to some of the new programs.


4

Dazzle With Enthusiasm


  • Enthusiasm is an element that has power in the employment world.


  • Interviewers are more likely to hire a person who expresses enthusiasm than a person who expresses flat over-qualification.


  • Enthusiasm lets the prospective employer know that the applicant is highly excited and extremely grateful for the opportunity to work for such a firm.


  • The best way to come to an interview is to bring a huge bucket of enthusiasm.


  • Going above and beyond what everyone else does is critical for a person who sincerely wants a job.


  • Nowadays, too many applicants are competing for the same position for mediocre attempts to be acceptable.
