In a competitive job search, when everyone is equally qualified, most candidates won’t get scores of invites to interview. However, common sense tells us someone will be hired.

How do you become that person?

What Can You Do to Improve Your Chances?

Follow up is essential. It’s not enough to submit your resume for hundreds of openings, then sit back and wait for that all-important phone call. You need to be proactive, which means contacting the company or companies where you’ve applied.

This video from ehowmoney provides important information on how to conduct your follow up with employers.

My writer took the time to get to know me and was able to provide input in areas I had not thought of. It was tough because I had to let go of some of my old identities to start in a new career, but she took me over the hump and captured who I am--and what I can give.
