Competition for jobs these days can be huge.
A lot of companies nowadays are looking for people with the exact skills and experience.
And this can make it hard, particularly if you don’t have the direct skills and experience to do a job, but could do it if you were given the chance.
If you’re getting frustrated with your job hunting because you’re not getting invited in for interviews, or when you get interviewed, you’re not being offered the job, then take heart. The solution is probably easier than you think.
Today I’ll take you through a 3-step process that’ll get you into more interviews, and then if you follow it, will get you job offers.
Rental Manager vs Property Manager
The first step and the best piece of advice is to get yourself in front of hiring managers or recruiters who are interested in your skills and experience.
When a hiring manager or recruiter can see you’re a good candidate match for a job, they’re much more likely to ask you in for an interview.
When this happens, it takes a lot of pressure off you in the interview because from the hiring manager’s perspective, they can see you’re a good candidate for the job, they just need to meet you to tick all the boxes with you.
From there, it’s easy for them to confirm you’re who they’re after, then offer you the job.
If it sounds easy, it’s because it is.
So how do you do it?
The easy way to get in front of the right hiring managers and recruiters is have them come to you, and the best way to do that is to use Connectzapp.
The way it works is you enter the details of the job you’re after. You’re then given a list of jobs best suited to what you’re looking for, ranked in order with the best matched job at the top.
You then swipe through each job, choose the ones you’re most interested in, make a shortlist and then contact those companies.
It’s easy and quick and the best part is each hiring manager or recruiter can see you’re a good match for the job, so they want to talk to you.
So give it a try and see how easy it is.
Go to Connectzapp.com or get the app.
So using Connectzapp is step number one.
Step 2 is to send your resume to as many companies as possible.
The more jobs you apply for, the more chance you have of being asked in for an interview and then being offered a job.
In the past, I’ve seen people who have been very targeted in the jobs they apply for or the companies they want to work for, so they don’t apply for many jobs.
This strategy is fine if you have highly specialized skills or if you’re not in a hurry to get a job.
But if you’re like most of us and you need a job yesterday because the bills are piling up, then a targeted strategy probably isn’t going to work for you.
So here’s the best way to do this…
Part 1 — Get Your Resume Read
The first part of step 2 is you need to get your resume past the applicant tracking software.
The way to do this is to look at the wording and phrases used in the jobs you’re applying for and then use the same words and phrases in your resume.
Doing this will get your resume past the filtering software companies use.
It’ll also catch the eye of any hiring managers or recruiters who skim read your resume because the words in your resume match the words they put in the job ad.
Your resume is essentially a piece of marketing material designed to get the interest of hiring managers and recruiters and it needs to have impact and grab their attention.
So to give your resume the most impact and have it get you invited in for an interview I suggest you watch my video called 5 things your resume must have to get more job interviews.
Part 2 — Send Your Resume To As Many Companies As Possible
The second part of step 2 is to apply for as many jobs as you can so your resume is received by as many companies as possible.
When you do this and apply for all the jobs you’re interested in and all the jobs you may only be vaguely interested in, and your resume contains the words most of the jobs ads use, then you’re going to get called in for interviews.
Then when you receive the inevitable calls from recruiters and hiring managers, you can speak to them about the job they have on offer, how much their offering in regards to salary, and then YOU can decide if you want to talk it further with that particular job application.
The great thing about doing it this way is it swings the power back to you and puts you in the position where you can decide whether you want to continue with an application or not.
The other thing this does is it makes you feel much better about your job hunting, because you now have employers chasing you, instead of the other way around.
And Step 3 is to do your homework before you sit down for an interview.
When it comes to how you present in an interview, always remember that birds of a feather flock together.
In other words, the hiring manager wants to hire someone for the job who is like the people already at the company, and specifically, like the people at the company in the same role as you’re applying for.
So your goal at the interview is to dress like them, act like them and be like them.
Obviously, don’t be untrue to who you are, but recognize that when you show you’re the same as them, you’re more likely to be offered the job.
For help with this go to connectzapp.com and watch the videos I’ve done on how to interview so you get offered the job.
Some of the videos cover-
- How to communicate well when you’re in an interview
- The common mistakes people make when they’re in an interview
- How to know if the interview went well
So do your homework before you sit down for an interview. Do your homework about the company, it’s products, it’s culture and it’s people. And sharpen up your interview skills by watching the videos and blogs at Connectzapp.com.
So there’s the 3-step process you can use to re-energize your job hunting and get the job want quickly.
If you follow these 3 steps, you’ll have recruiters and hiring managers chasing you, you’ll be asked in for more interviews and you’ll be offered a job.
So give it a try.
Good luck with your job hunting!
