?How to Look Your Best in a Down Economy?
As you know too well ~ many jobs have been lost during the turn down in our economy over the last several years. Important sectors as well as entire industries have felt the challenges of lost profits and reduced staff.
Most of us felt the dot-com failures personally. Venture Capitalists hit the skids while employees were terminated by the thousands. Many found themselves in the job market for the very first time. Highly qualified talent with nowhere to land but in the unemployed lines. A rude awakening to say the least.
In this arena it means putting on your best ~ standing "out" from the crowd. Getting yourself in front of the decision makers. Placing YOU on the "mind-ladder" of the hiring authority or someone else will "out-shine" you as the best candidate.
Watch out for TOO MANY details?. don't do it!
No one is going to read a 4 or 5-page resume. Yes, I know, you have so much to tell but hardly anyone will listen. Very few of us need more than a page or two, so keep that in mind as you begin to sort out the details. Prove your ability to be concise, to know what's important to a future employer.
Knowledge and experience are keys
.....carry much weight in the decisions made by the firms hiring authority. Organizational skills will be obvious in your ability to "communicate" your success and value.
Remember ~ you are competing with many exceptional candidates in today's job market and your challenge is to prove your worth beyond all others. Placing yourself on the "mind-ladder" of the hiring authority at the proper level will do much in getting you an interview and serious consideration for a new position.
The BIG Question? What can YOU do for me? What "results" can I expect from you as our employee? Every employer has a bottom line [profits] to reach and new personnel gets hired who can bring profits into the firm quickly to help meet growth and efficiency expectations.

How To Get More Interviews In Your Job Search
Richard Bolles, job search guru and author of What Color Is Your Parachute? predicts that you can expect to search for work 1-2 months for every $10,000 you hope to earn. So, if you're looking for a $40,000 a year position, you may search for 4-8 months to land it. Back when the economy sizzled, that job search length would have seemed outrageous, but now, many people would be thrilled to only search for 4-8 months.
