As of this moment, it doesn’t matter what’s been happening in your job search – if you can’t find jobs, if you can’t get interviews, or if you go to interview after interview, but you can’t get offers is very frustrating.

A typical job search can last anywhere from 6-9 months, or longer. The reason this happens is because job seekers just don’t understand what they need to know in order to be successful and find that job faster.

 

3 Biggest Reasons People Don’t Get Interviews

  • Resume – most people have a poorly written resume that a Hiring Manager doesn’t want to see.
  • Cover Letter – So many people don’t understand how important a cover letter is and those that do, don’t know how to send it.
  • Hiring Manager – Not Getting in front of the  Hiring Manager. People think when they fill out a job application that the hiring manager will see the resume. Most resumes are never seen by the hiring manager because the HR person is looking for the perfect resume to forward to the HM.

5 Tips for Getting a Job Interview

  1. Strengthen Your Resume.
  2. Write a Compelling Cover Letter.
  3. Use the Internet to Find and Contact Hundreds of Hiring Managers.
  4. Use Your Network to Find Out About Opportunities.
  5. Improve Every Interview So That You Get the Offer By Bringing a 30 60 90 Day Plan.

Tip #1 – Strengthen Your Resume

  • A Resume is the Foundation of Your Job Search
  • A Quality Resume Has a Profound Impact

Tip #2 – Write an Interesting, Compelling Cover Letter. Put some thought into your cover letter.

  • Your Cover Letter Is Like a Quick Ad.
  • Gets the Hiring Manager to Look Closer at You.
  • Purpose – To Get Them to Read Your Resume and to Influence Their Perception of You.

Tip # 3 – Find and Contact Hundreds of Hiring Managers.

  • That Person Is Not in HR
  • That Person Is Always the Hiring Manager
  • Your Future Boss or Your Boss’s Boss

The Most Effective Way to Get Interviews Is to Go Directly to the Person with the Power and Authority to Hire You.>

What is it worth to you to get a job one-month sooner!

If you get a job even a month faster, you will put thousands of dollars in your pocket. For Example, if you are going for a job that pays:

  • $30,000 a Year, you will Earn an Extra $2,500
  • $60,000 a Year, you will Earn an Extra $5,000
  • $120,000 a Year, you will Earn an Extra $10,000

What could you do with that extra month?

 

 

Stop Applying Online

Stop Applying For Jobs Online
– It Doesn’t Work –

Stop Applying for jobs online - It's not workingAre you sick of spending hours applying online and then not even getting interviews for jobs you’re qualified for? – You are not alone!

Online applications are the single biggest waste of time for job seekers. That system is rigged against you.

 

Why Applying for Jobs Doesn’t Work:

If there is something you’re doing that feels depressing, you should stop doing it and this applies in particular to online job listings. Listings put all of the power in the employer’s hands since there is no feedback mechanism for the candidate.

Applying online will make you feel insecure and leave you wondering what you’re doing wrong. There is an extremely low response rate to these ads, because unless you meet every single criterion listed, it is unlikely that a human being will have in fact seen your resume.

In addition:
• Too many people applying for the same job.
• Your application goes to the company database.
• Human Resources is Looking for “Perfect”

If you are not in front of the Hiring Manager, you are not in front of the person who can hire you.

Improving these 4 Areas Will Help You the Most:

1. Your cover letter.
2. Your Resume.
3. How You Get Interviews.
4. How Well You Do in Those Interviews.

Cover Letter

Write the Cover Letter to the Job, “NOT” Your Resume. In your first sentence or two, put the whole thing in context. What job are you interested in? Make that very clear. Remember, each cover letter you write is going to be written for that particular job.

Resume

The vast majority of job seekers do NOT have a good resume. A Resume is a Marketing Document. It’s what the employer sees before they meet you and is what they use to decide whether or not to call you in for an interview. Your resume has to sell you for the job.

Three Deadly Resume Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Putting your skills section last – Every resume must have a skills section. However, what’s even more important to remember is the placement of your skills section.

The skills section of your resume should be the first thing employers read. When you write your skills section, target your skills towards the qualifications for the position. This will help your resume stand out from other applications.

Unnecessary details – Employers don’t care about every job you’ve had in your entire life. They only care about the experience you have that pertains to the position you’re applying for.

For example, if you’re applying for your first entry-level job after college, don’t include your extra-curricular activities from high school or the babysitting jobs you had in college. Employers only want to learn about the jobs you had that will make you a great fit for the position.

Sharing too much information – Your resume isn’t meant to be your life history. Don’t include information regarding your religion, marital status, hobbies unrelated to your job, or how many children you have. These are details that should stay out of the application and interview process during your job search.

How You Get Interviews

Human Resources looks for the perfect resume.

  • Is yours perfect?
  • Do you have exactly what they’re looking for?
  • The exact words? Exact experience?

HR is an obstacle for you to overcome – go straight to the hiring manager.

When you get your resume to the hiring manager…You get it to the person who Understands the position best and how your skills will transfer into it.

The hiring manager is more motivated than anyone to fill that spot. The hiring manager can say “yes.” HR can’t say “yes.” They can only say “no.” – Skip them.

 

Ageism

Beat Age Discrimination

Interviews can be rough for middle age job seekers

 

Age Discrimination on job interview questions and answers

Age Discrimination in Interviews Is a Huge Problem. It is very frustrating during your job search to go into interview after interview and not knowing why you are not getting any job offers.

If you’re over 50 and in a job search, you may be encountering a few challenges. Maybe you haven’t job searched in a while, or maybe you are experiencing some age bias, or employers telling you you’re “too qualified” for the job.
The good news is that because you’re over 50, you have a few advantages in the job search that younger workers don’t have. And it’s easier than you think to overcome the obstacles in your way.

ffffffffffffff
Age Discrimination Is a Huge Problem

Specific job search strategies

As an older worker, you do have a stereotype to deal with. The perception is that older workers can’t take orders from younger bosses, they don’t do technology, they resist change, they lack energy, maybe they have health problems, and they cost too much.

Use your network

The biggest advantage you have as an Over 50 candidates is that because of your age, you probably have an enormous network. You’ve probably forgotten about all the people you know from school, from various jobs you’ve worked, from social groups, from churches, from your kid’s school, from all kinds of places. A good network is one of the greatest job search resources you can have.

Grow your network

Everybody should be on LinkedIn, whether they’re in an active job search or not. There are just too many opportunities there in terms of contacting people that you don’t want to miss. But don’t just set up a profile. Join groups. Participate in the discussions that come up. As your name gets to be known, you’ll likely pick up new contacts. And don’t forget about Facebook, talk about your job search on Facebook, too.

Active Networking online

Edit your resume

If you’ve been employed for a long time, you have a great problem: how to edit down everything you’ve done into a summary of your experience. Most over-50 people have no idea how to edit their resume so that it is less than 2 pages.

But it must be less than 2 pages. The great news is that your editing is going to leave only the best, most impressive stats for the hiring manager to look at.

You’ll probably have to edit it for each job you apply for. But that means that you can have a true marketing document that sells you for the position.

Interviewing tips

There are probably two biggest obstacles you face when you interview.

First Obstacle –  They can let you know how you’re coming across in your answers. You probably won’t like doing it, but I guarantee you that the practice of answering those questions and the chance to refine your answers before you get to an actual interview will be worth it.

Second obstacle – will be when you have to interview with someone younger than you. If you find yourself in that situation, it’s up to you to make that situation more comfortable. Smile at them. Talk about things that show you have energy, like volunteering or the hobbies.

Try to project the attitude of: “I haven’t done this job before” or “I haven’t worked for this company before, so I’m sure that there’s a lot I could learn from you and I am excited to be learning it.”And then draw on your experience to answer those interview questions.

Giving real reasons why you are right for this job

In Summary

The truth is that if you’re over 50, you have a lot of advantages that younger candidates don’t have…like experience, knowledge, judgment, and even things like fewer childcare issues and a more flexible schedule.

Stay positive and concentrate on communicating why you’re a solution for their problem. Present yourself with energy and enthusiasm, use the resources you have available to you (like your network), and interview with confidence. You have a lot to offer.

14 Job Interview Questions You Should Be Asking

14 Job Interview Questions You Should Be Asking

question mark girlFourteen Job Interview Questions you should be asking if you want to stand out from other candidates.

An interview isn’t just a one way conversation, you too need to ask questions to the interviewer. By doing so, the interview will result in an excellent interview that results in a job offer, and that is why you should ask questions.

I’ve put together a starting list of great questions to ask your interviewer. Weave some of these questions into the conversation (don’t ask them all at once) and you will have a fantastic job interview.

Questions That Give You Better Answers To Their Questions

  • What would an ideal candidate for this job look like?
  • Tell me about your most successful employee.
  • What tasks will define success for this job?
  • What would sink an employee in this position?

What they say in response to these types of questions will tell you what they consider important. This knowledge will help you deliver better, more tailored answers to their questions.

pointing finger

 

 

 

Questions That Help You Know If You Want the Job

  • What’s a typical work day like?
  • What do you like or dislike the most about working for this company?
  • What are your biggest goals over the next year or two?
  • What happened to the last person who was in this position? (You want to know if they were promoted or fired and why that happened.)

You need to know if this job will be a good fit and if it will help you grow and advance your career.

Questions That Turn the Interview Into a Conversation

  • Do you agree?
  • Did I answer your question?
  • Would you like to hear more about that?

These kinds of questions that get them to respond to you help you establish rapport, and they help you know if you are on the right track. They also make you seem more confident.

(An outstanding way to turn the interview into a professional conversation that gets you hired is to bring a 30-60-90-Day Plan. Even if it isn’t perfect, the conversation will be miles ahead of what other candidates are doing.)

pointing finger

 

 

 

Questions That Uncover Doubts They Have About You

  • Can you see me being very successful in this role?
  • Do you see any reason you wouldn’t move me forward in this process?
  • Is there any reason you wouldn’t hire me?

Try to find out what they think of you as a candidate while you are still in the interview. If they have any doubts about you, the best time to overcome them is while you are there speaking with them. Sometimes the doubt is something you can’t do anything about, but often it’s a result of a miscommunication or misconception–and that is something you can correct to save the offer.

—– * —–

If you have trouble asking questions in interviews, find an interview coach to role-play the interview with you . It’s worth it if it increases your confidence and gives you a smoother, more successful interview.

Why Are Cover Letters So Important for Your Resume?

Why Are Cover Letters So Important for Your Resume?

cover letter with coffee cupWhile most job seekers focus on crafting the perfect resume that includes a long list of accolades, achievements, degrees and awards, many HR professionals agree a resume is not the most important aspect of a potential candidate’s application package.

 

The Importance of a Grand Entrance

Outstanding cover letters can turn a middle-of-the-road candidate into a top contender. Why? By its very nature, a resume is usually dry and fact based.

By contrast, cover letters for resumes show hiring managers an applicant is vested in the job they have available. Anyone can hit “reply” and attach a one-size-fits-all resume in response to a job posting. A cover letter written to specifically address a particular position shows an applicant has taken the time and effort to make a good impression. It also shows hiring managers a different side of an applicant than his or her resume does. Word choice and attention to detail in cover letters for resumes matter. These nuances can move a “reject” resume into the “must interview” pile.

pointing finger

 

 

Consider What to Include in a Cover Letter

Yes, the cover letter is your opportunity to show your personality. To an appropriate degree, that is. Hiring managers looking for candidates for high-level executive positions must cull through hundreds or even thousands of resumes and cover letters. A short, succinct cover letter can be refreshing. One that is too long, too detailed or too informal is a waste of time.

Crafting a winning cover letter that allows your personality to shine through, without being too wordy or including unhelpful details, can be challenging. Unless you are a writer by profession (and a really good one), consider hiring a reputable cover letter writing service to help you. At the very least, a cover letter writing service can help you craft a good “base” letter you can customize for each job you apply for. If you are in the hunt for a high-salary executive position, you’ve probably already hired an executive resume service to perfect your resume. Your cover letter needs at least the same degree of professional attention.

Do Your Research Before You Write

HR professionals, especially those hiring for high-dollar, premium executive positions, have seen it all. They have a knack for knowing which cover letters are form letters sent out to many potential employers and which have been carefully crafted with their company’s job opening in mind. Before you sit down in front of your laptop to create a cover letter, make sure you’ve done the following:

  • Conduct at least a bit of research into the company so you can tailor your letter to fit in with the company’s corporate culture.
  • Use active rather than passive words and naturally incorporate keywords into the letter that were noted as “must-possess” skills or attributes in the job listing you are responding to.
  • Include specific, not-commonly-known facts about the company to show you did your homework.

If you’re launching a new executive-level job search or want to revive a floundering search, crafting a winning cover letter is key.

Here’s the Best Cover Letter Advice

Give Them a Reason to Talk to You

While this is partially true, there is much more to creating a great cover letter that makes a difference. Hiring a cover letter writing service can help, but this advice will allow you to get a start on your own.

sidebar webinars and ebooks
 
 

Give Them a Reason to Talk to You

Your cover letter and resume create a first impression you can’t often overcome. It’s what employers use to determine whether they want to call an individual in for an interview. Within your cover letter, it’s important to give them a couple of reasons why they should consider you a valuable candidate. Do your research to find the main points of the company so you can address them in your cover letter.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask

It may seem improper to ask straight out for an interview, but this can be one of the most effective tricks to use in cover letters for resumes. Unfortunately, many people feel asking this direct question will be viewed negatively by hiring managers. However, it typically has the opposite effect. It can show you are enthusiastic about the job and is often valued by employers as a positive sign.

Leave Them Wanting More

Have you ever paid close attention to the way direct mail advertisements are written? Many of them include a P.S. written at the bottom to make you want to learn more about the products or services advertised. People are known for their curiosity. If you include this type of message near the bottom of the letter, it will help capture the attention of the hiring manager and make them feel like they need to know more about you.

Don’t Be Generic

Starting your cover letter can be one of the most difficult parts of the process. It’s tempting to begin with a statement of your eagerness to work with the company. However, a majority of the cover letters and resumes they receive will contain just such a statement. To ensure you stand out from all of the others, get creative with your introduction. Consider the industry you want to enter and think outside the box to create an opening line that captures attention.

A cover letter writing service can provide the assistance you need to make you seem like an ideal candidate for an interview. Researching prospective employers can help you find ways to show them why you are the best choice for the job. In combination with these tips, you will find your cover letter and resume get you more interviews so you can get the job you want.
