How to separate yourself from other job-seekers.

Make sure you have a LinkedIn profile

The first thing recruiters and hiring managers typically do is look you up on LinkedIn. Be sure you have a LinkedIn profile that mirrors your resume. Also, have a nice picture of yourself and a cover photo so your profile is complete. It humanizes you beyond a resume and puts a face with the name.

Cite your awards and achievements

State any awards you have won, as well as achievements you are proud of in bringing solutions to problems you have previously encountered. Give examples of specific challenges you faced in your previous workplace and the innovative and creative solutions you used to solve them.

Prove that you did your homework about the company

Research the company and the employer so you are ready to answer any questions that come through regarding the company. You demonstrate that you have information about the company by tying your answers to what you learn about them. Take your time to know about its culture, mission, vision, values, and recent achievements and improvements. Having this understanding assists you in learning how you can contribute to their needs and showcase that on your cover letter, which impresses the hiring manager since it displays your affection about the company. Be prepared to do a quick elevator pitch as well on what products and services the company offers.

Ask important questions

An interview is also an opportunity for candidates to inquire more about a company. After doing your homework about the company, you can come up with some questions and direct them to the potential employers during the interview. This demonstrates that you are dedicated to the process and interested in the company.

Take Away

Yes, it can be daunting trying to find the right role for you, but how you present yourself is key. Following these guidelines may make or break landing that next dream job. It’s a jungle out there!
