The interview is the most important process in getting a job. Considering the norm of getting two or three interview opportunities for every 100 resumes sent, the importance of standing out and making a lasting impression are critical to securing an offer.
While dressing for success, researching the company in advanced, and the initial handshake are important, the most crucial aspect of an interview is the content of the conversation itself.
Emotional Isaiah Austin Realizes NBA Dream After Devastating News - Resume Not Required
The basketball season ended for the Baylor Bears with a 69-52 defeat at the hands of the Wisconsin Badgers in the Sweet 16 back in March. It may have been the end of an impressive run by the sixth seeded Bears and also the collegiate career of center Isaiah Austin, but he was preparing to enter into the NBA Draft, so a whole new chapter was opening up for him.
Until a few days ago when Austin was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the body's connective tissue. According to The Marfan Foundation, the connective tissues holds all the body's cells, organs and tissue together. It also plays an important role in helping the body properly develop.
Job seekers aren't just defined as unemployed. There are many out there taking their cars and themselves to work every day who want to embark on another position for various reasons. All of them have one word in common when it comes to their search.
With the emerging technology platforms that allow users to submit resumes over the web, it's hard to stand out and allow employers to see the quality you can bring to their organization. Resumes force employers and job-seekers to only identify each other by what they have done and not necessarily what they want to do. That's always been the stigma for resumes. It hurts now that 50 million resumes are out there over the internet and that you're in competition with them for jobs.
We all know the job search can put a strain on your life and the ones close to you. It feels like there is no hope. Resumes are sent to hundreds of companies, but you don't hear a thing. Obviously the jobs are out there. It's not that. It's not even your qualifications. It's the resume getting buried with millions and millions of others in a hole that will never be seen.
It’s time to clear up some confusion about networking for job searches. LinkedIn with over 300 million members started out as a networking resource for job searches. So, why don’t you have a new job when you’ve told all your network you’re looking? (Which is a checkbox in your profile).
The problem with networking, via LinkedIn or otherwise, is that people mistakenly believe their network has more information about available jobs then themselves. With few lucky exceptions, where an opening serendipitously appears in an organization to which your connected, your network has no more knowledge about openings and opportunities. There’s more than 138 million jobs out there. No one can have a comprehensive idea of the jobs out there. That’s why we don’t rely on networks to find jobs.
Former Resume Not Required Clients Realizing Their Dream Jobs
Whether you're currently employed looking to change your career or unemployed and looking for direction, Resume Not Required offers ways to change individuals lives for the better in realizing their true potential and netting them the perfect career path.
Listed as an honorable mention in the Forbes Top 100 websites for your job search, Resume Not Required excels at representing clients in their search for a "Super Bowl" career. Many have shared their sentiments about their experience with RNR.
How many times have you searched for a job online, only to see that you’re underqualified or overqualified for the desired position?
It’s happened likely many times.
The “12-year experience” factor likely comes from the departure of their most recent occupant and the organization wants a replacement with equal experience and possibly better character. The thought is why are they looking for a position that requires 12 years or more experience if the person wasn't fired, let go or left in some capacity?
Many individuals are currently working in a profession where they wish they could escape and move forward to bigger and better things. While others who are unemployed just want to eliminate their search and get back into the workforce.
Either way, both situations require knowing which road one should take in order to be happy in their career and in their personal life.
One of the questions we like to ask a job seeker is, “Who are five people that you would most like to meet in the professional world?”
This is not one of those pointless, hypothetical, fantasy question (such as, “Who would you rather be stranded with on a desert island?”). How you answer this question can help us gain a better understanding of your job aspirations and ultimate career goals.
Don’t be a Robot when You Think! - Resume Not Required
This blog is the result of an article written a few weeks ago via the Washington Post titled: What if this ATLAS shrugged? — DARPA unveils new humanoid robot. I think it is interesting to note that many people today fear emerging technologies that are designed to improve the everyday quality of our lives. Take for example the technology of robots. They can perform the same function perfectly day after day, month after month, year after year. They can do it quickly and without error. They are mindless, and yet they were programmed by people with minds designed to think outside the box so that the robot could stay inside the box.
