Be prepared to make the “60-second Sale.” This is a four to five sentence summary that covers your biography and career accomplishments. Be sure to memorize this statement so when an interviewer says, “Tell me about yourself,” you won’t miss a beat.
Utilize your personal network. If you are looking to get hired at a specific company, ask everyone you know if they have a connection you can use. The goal is to get your resume into the hands of the hiring manager via an internal network rather than the outside avenues.
Attend professional association meeting in a related field as well as those that cater to your specialty. This will get you in contact with more professionals that may be able to help you get a leg up on the competition.
Don’t settle for less in order to get the job. Know your worth. Before accepting a position find out what the current salary is for someone with your experience and make sure the package you are being offered is competitive.
Whether you are posting your resume online or talking with your networking contacts, it is important to do something job hunting related on a daily basis. Tatum Sherman helps individuals find high-quality positions every day. Her company Resource Referral has placed thousands of individuals in positions at companies across New Jersey.
