Are you giving employers what they want?

When you’re facing an economy that’s flush with highly-qualified candidates and there are too few jobs to go around, it may seem like an impossible task to capture a hiring manager’s attention.

Being invited to interview may be a dream you don’t believe will happen.

Don’t Make the Mistake of Giving Up

Companies need employees as much as you need a job. They are interviewing. They are hiring. They are also weeding out candidates that don’t present them with the best possible background for the position.

Knowing what an employer wants isn’t difficult. They want you, the potential employee, to either make their company money or save their company money. Yes, it’s as simple as that.

What Employers Are Looking For

They want your resume to reflect your knowledge, skills, abilities, in an easy to read and follow format.

They want to know what you achieved – the results of your tasks, not simply your tasks.

A stellar resume that is accomplishment oriented, rather than task oriented, will get you in the ‘to-be-interviewed’ pile. Dovetailing your background to fit perfectly with a company’s needs will place you far ahead of your competitors.

Getting an interview and being awarded the job is doable – all you need to remember is to give employers what they want.
