Once the hiring manager looks at your resume, you want the search to be over.
To make that happen, first take a few minutes to carefully review the job posting. You must make certain that your qualifications, skills, and experiences match the job description perfectly in order to attract the attention of the hiring manager.
Make the review a question-and-answer session and be completely clear about how your resume solves the problems of the open position. Match the company’s needs with your skills by demonstrating your recent achievements in your resume. Target your strengths by creating a thoughtful list of core competencies that match the requirements of the open position.
If your resume does its job as matchmaker, the hiring manager won’t be able to wait to talk to you!
