READ THE JOB DESCRIPTION 

 

It is important that you apply to positions that best fit your skills, education and experience.  If you don’t have what we are looking for in a particular position then this potentially could get you screened out of the recruitment process.  Pay particular attention to the ‘ideal candidate’ section.

 

TAILOR YOUR RESUME

 

Take the time to read your resume. Then read the job description.  Pull out key words from the job description that apply to your own skills and abilities and use them in your resume.  This is a great way to get noticed!

TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILE

 

What kind of social footprint do you have?  Searching for candidates on social media is becoming common practice for many recruiters.  You don’t want to have anything on your social media accounts that may deter someone from hiring you.
