Job Search Assumptions

Many hold job-search assumptions that can drag their job search out longer than necessary.

1. “My last job search was qucik and easy so I’m sure this time won’t be any different.”
The job market has ups and downs - some times it favors job seekers and some time the employers. People who were once courted by recruiters may find they are no longer receiving calls with opportunities. Your action plan: Develop a job search action plan that is proactive.

2. “Recruiters take the time to read entire resumes.”
Recruiters will usually only skimm the resume intially. So the reality is that the best information should be in the top four to five inches of your resume for someone to really notice it. With the volume of resumes that recruiters receive they do not have time to huntfor good material on a resume.
Your action plan: Prioritize your information on your resume.

3. “I’m not going bother with a cover letter since no one reads them anyway.”
This is only because most cover letters are of obviously poor qwuality. But if you have a good cover letter then it will be read.
Your action plan: Make a quality cover letter. If you need help get a resume and cover letter specialist to help you.

4. “If I can just get my foot in the door, my skills will become apparent in the interview.”
There are many talented people so you’ll need to distinguish yourself through superior interview preparation.
Your action plan: Get help with identifying commonly asked interview questions and how best to answer them.
