You understand that it is hard to land a new job. Some people seem to struggle more than others.
What makes it easy for some people to land a new job?
Let me give you a list of some things that make it easier. Some will be obvious. Others, not so much.
A great value-driven resume
I’ve seen a lot of resumes in my lifetime and wrote thousands of resumes in my many years of resume writing. However, a resume written in 2019 by me is significantly different than one I wrote years ago. So is the marketplace.
Today’s resume has to be story-driven. The resume should never be just a job description recap. It needs to catch the attention of readers who are used to attention-grabbing web headlines.
A well-written LinkedIn profile is critical to help you land a new job
I still find people who are not on LinkedIn or who have marginalized LinkedIn profiles.
Many people don’t realize there are experts who write LinkedIn profiles daily. I coach people daily while I am writing their profiles so that their profile is attention-getting and they use strategies to showcase their knowledge.
