My New Resume Looks Great – Now What?
As Your Job Search Guide, InterviewMeToo wants to ensure that your new resume is an asset to your job search. The following steps serve as an action plan to get your job search moving in the right direction.
Step #1: Review Your Resume
We cannot stress the importance of reviewing your resume after receiving the Word and PDF files. As part of our Resume Writing Service, we are happy to make revisions/alterations to your new resume.
Step #2: Create/Update Your Account with Job Boards
If you’re in the process of searching for a new position, establishing your present on popular job boards is an excellent first step. You’ll improve your visibility with potential employers and increase the likelihood of receiving inbound calls from recruiters. Not sure how to get started? We can help.
Step #3: Examine Your LinkedIn Profile
If you don’t already have a LinkedIn profile, there’s no time like the present to create an account. If you already have an account, we suggest that the details on your resume (employment, education, training etc.) match with the information on your LinkedIn profile. In addition to Resume Services, InterviewMeToo also offers LinkedIn Profile Writing to help shorten your job search.
Step #4: Brush Up on Your Interviewing Skills
If it has been some time since your last job interview, now is the time to begin preparing for your next job interview. While focusing on applying to new job postings is important, being prepared to make a great impression during your interview is just as important. If you’re interested in learning more about Interview Coaching, let us know.
Step #5: Begin Applying to Open Jobs
After your ducks are in a row, it’s time to begin tracking down potential employers to which you want to apply. Our advice is to focus your efforts on a small number of highly relevant job postings, conduct in-depth research on each company, and create a personalized cover letter that speaks to how an employer’s goals mesh with your skills and background.
