5 Ways to Get Your Dream Job!
1. Act! Don't wait!
There is a shortage of talent, but that will change soon. Unemployed or underemployed people are sitting on the sidelines – right now there’s an excess of employers hiring who can’t find workers so don’t wait until it’s too late! Get ahead by looking for new jobs NOW because these opportunities won’t last forever
To summarize: If you’re currently unemployed and want to get hired as soon as possible, ACT! Call us today and find out how we can assist you.
2. Is your CV getting past AI (robots)?
The world has changed and resumes will continue to change with it. You can’t afford to make your resume stand out with nitty-gritty jargon, because 75% of them get scanned by robots before they even reach a human manager’s desk!
You should keep things simple: use an easy-to-read font such as Arial or Calibri; include only relevant education (keep this brief!), work experience, honors degrees if applicable; summarize achievements in one bullet point per skill set listed on the application. In this case…boring will be good! For more ideas on how to improve your CV, click here:
3. Dress for Success!
A recent study has found that when people feel good about themselves, their mood improves and posture is improved. This effect can be called ‘enclosed cognition’. Who doesn’t want to appear more confident in an interview? And who wouldn’t hire someone with the right attitude towards work if they come across it on this site!
A study done at the University of Oregon found that 20 seconds is all it takes for interviewers to judge your competence, warmth, and hire-ability. Those “hot takes” are incredibly unlikely to change no matter how long you speak!
4. Zoom is here to stay...
Research has shown that we size up people within the first second of looking at them, during a video conference/interview. For this reason, it’s important to make a good impression in video interviews if you want your potential employer or client to get excited by what they see so far! Dress as if you are indeed meeting in person, adjust your camera and make sure that your background is not cluttered. Remember to be excited, but always remain professional.
