You hear it regularly on the news. Job losses in the thousands. People being made redundant from organisations trying to downsize and go leaner to cut costs to better weather a harsh and multifaceted economic climate. Today, the news seems to form a large part of our life, grabbing our attention more than ever it seems.
Going back twenty or thirty years ago, finding work many would say was much more straightforward. Some individuals found that they could rock up to a business, say that they were looking for work, what they could do and their experience, then to be interviewed there on the spot or be offered the job to start right away.
It’s incredibly important now more than ever to stand out from other applicants and make an impression simply because of how competitive the jobs market is and just how flooded are positions advertised because of so many candidates vying for the same position.
You can stand out from other applicants by having your resume professionally revamped, cover letter expertly worded and tailored and write accurate responses to key selection criteria. The team at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions offer these services to clients all over Australia. And, once you have secured an interview, unfortunately, it’s not as straightforward anymore.
You need to be able to sell your experience and skillset to a prospective employer which you can do so by refining and finessing your interview technique. You can receive interview coaching from Client Centric too.
Have you ever looked at a large crowd of people, and for some reason, your attention is drawn to a person in the crowd.
They might be wearing a bright coloured outfit. They stand out. The same is true for job seekers.
While I’m not suggesting that you need a colourful CV with pretty pictures, the content must stand out and not only capture the potential employer’s attention, but hold it too.
