Great article!  In addition to the phrases: I also suggest to avoid using the word "no" during the screening interview.

 

The goal is to anticipate the questions, and to be prepared with alternatives and solutions.  For example, instead of saying no, I can't do that, no, I am not familiar with..  You should be able to say....I am familiar with xyz system, while I have not used at work before, it is very similar to abc system which I am currently using.  Or, I am currently taking classes on advanced excel and if hired I would be able to hit the ground running.

 

Make it a great day!

Excellent article that is even more true in 2013 as technology evolves.  Mirroring the job posting in regards to targeting key words, responsibilities, and key competencies is very important.

 

Remember, the goal of your resume is to land you the interview!

3 Reasons Why Your Resume Isn't Helping You Get Hired

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, August 26, 2013 8:55 AM

This article discusses the top 3 reasons why resumes get rejected.

 

I particularly agree with:  Your resume doesn't get through the Applicant Tracking System.  Most large organizations have an automated system to track applicants for open positions.  This allows recruiters to enter key words, phrases, zip codes, etc. to filter resumes. 

 

Similar to how Google Search is used to search for topics.  If your resume isn't targeted to the position enough ... chances are your resume may not be seen by a human.

 

You may ask, where does HR or the recruiter get the key phrases and words when searching and filtering resumes?  They usually start with the job description, job posting, and some use values, competencies that are important to their company.  You can search on their website to read their mission, vision, values, etc. to get ideas.

 

Hope these tips help....Make it a great day!

I know that it is 2013 where technology rules; however, most global organizations still require a resume as part of the application process.  While I have written extensively about having a multi-pronged approach to finding and landing jobs...this article summarizes almostly exactly my sentiments.  Here are a few of the article's tips:

 

1.  Customize and target your resume for the position and industry

2.  Make your resume the perfect fit for the filter process

3.  Your summary should demonstrate your experience and skills that are important for the position your are applying for

4.  The first page of your resume should be able to stand on its own

5.  Use bullets to outline your accomplishments

 

Please take a minute to read through the article's Dos and Don'ts.

 

Make it a great day!
