Applying for jobs online can be a pain…

.

I can certainly understand exactly the level of frustration in that statement and the tedious task of applying for jobs online these days. Trust me, I understand and want to give a few tips and tricks to make this process as painless as possible.

Please understand that most employers are using applicant tracking systems (ATS) to process their applications and cutting down on the amount of candidates who will get to the interview process. It helps to have the right career tools, such as your resume, cover letter and letters of recommendations already prepared to help you move the application process along.

If you do not have any of these career tools or need help with getting them completed, please check out this resource to get your career tools completed, so you can get more efficient with your job application processes online. If you do have your career tools completed, then use it in the following ways.

-Save the full resume in Notepad version

-Upload this version of your resume to the ATS for the jobs you are applying for

-Create a different resume for every industry you have more than one year experience working

If you struggle with getting your career tools (your resume) to get you the desired result (a callback from an employer with an interview), then check out check out my other resource where you can have your career tools reviewed and updated, so they can produce the desired results.

Don’t think you need a resume?

There have been times where I don’t want to be bothered with resumes, cover letters and all the other career tools because it seems like a chore….

Well, let’s consider this scenario for a moment. If you were a real estate broker attending a networking event where at least 60% of the people there stated on their attendance card, they are looking to buy or sell their current primary residence. As you “work the room” with some of these people, the conversations leads to them asking you what you do for a living and you say, I’m a real estate broker. At least five of the ten people you have spoken with in that event expressed a very strong interest in conducting real estate transactions.

Hmmm…Stop and think for a minute, do you think you are in the right place at the right time as a real estate broker? Let me ask you another question, do you want to be in that networking event without your business card and a way to obtain their contact information? You see where I’m going here. The moral of the story is….have your career tools ready for business, to cultivate promising business and #career opportunities.

Just like this story of you being the real estate broker, you do not want to hear about career opportunities and not take full advantage of them. Granted, you can garner career opportunities without career tools, but you always put yourself in a better position, when you have your career tools ready to work for you.

If you are struggling with having your resumes, cover letters or letters of recommendation work for you and you need to have them working for you again, check out this resource here.

If you don’t have any of your career tools completed and need my help to get them created and structured for the career of your choice, check out my resource here to discuss the career tools needed to jumpstart your success in your chosen industry. The saying goes, when preparation meets opportunity, SUCCESS is inevitable.
