Executive Job Search Not Panning Out? Consider 3 Tips To Smooth Out The Process

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:

Conducting an executive job search is challenging work.  There are often so many documents to submit, so many interviews to take part in, and so many associates to keep track of for networking purposes that getting the job done can be more than a notion.

If you have been looking for work but realize that it’s just not getting you the callbacks you desire, it may be time to consider a few tips that might help you conduct a successful search:

Consider Applying for More Jobs

There’s no doubt that an executive job search requires that you dedicate a significant amount of time to looking through postings, checking for recommendations from your networking circle, and initiating contact with recruiters.  With all of the searching, you don’t want to forget that it’s more important to submit applications in order to move the process along.  Don’t fret; there will still be time to keep on searching after you’ve submitted a handful.

Does Your Resume Make Promises You Can’t Deliver?

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

When you’re in high hopes of finding employment, it can be a bit tempting to make promises in your resume that you hope you won’t have to prove you can deliver.  While it’s important that you look impressive on your resume, you certainly don’t want to get into the habit of telling white lies to get employed.

Doing this could truly backfire if you are actually hired for a position, especially once it’s revealed that you can’t deliver the results you’ve promised.  So if you want to impress without exaggerating the truth in your resume, here are some options to consider:

Make Promises You Can Keep Right Now

A great way to avoid making a promise you won’t be able to keep if hired is to simply tell the truth about your capabilities in the present.  For instance, if you have opened Microsoft Publisher only five times, then you don’t want to present yourself as a skilled user.

Why Beating Around The Bush Doesn’t Work In Resumes

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

Hiring managers are very busy people.  Not only are they given the responsibility of bringing in new candidates for the company, but in their positions, they have many other tasks to complete as well.  The last thing they have time to do is sift through a lot of fluff just to get to the point you’re trying to make in your resume.

That’s right.  Beating around the bush is not allowed in resumes—or at least hiring managers would prefer it were that way.  Here is why beating around the bush really just doesn’t work in resumes.

Discussing Career Goals Wastes Time

Although there is a time and place to discuss your career goals—usually during the interview—your resume isn’t the place for that.  Instead, your resume is where you want to specifically address those things that you can do for the company.

If you try to beat around the bush on this topic, the hiring manager will be forced to dig deeper into the resume to get past your broad goals and zero in on how you can help the company in the position for which they’re hiring.  And if you don’t successfully (and quickly) make your point, you could easily find your resume in the rejection pile.

5 Components Found In Impressive IT Resumes

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

As you probably already know, the IT world is a competitive one, which makes it important for you to write an impressive resume every time to be considered for just about any technical job you want.  While different hiring managers may want to see different qualifications in candidates’ resumes, there are some components that are valued across the board.  Let’s look at five that are good to include in your IT resume:

#1: Industry-Related Keywords

Industry keywords are important on any resume, but as an IT candidate, tech keywords are crucial in showing that you are entrenched in the industry.  Whether you’re listing your certifications or using specific phrases for your field, you want to include them so that hiring managers—and screening software—know you’re qualified.

#2: A Technology Section

In addition to incorporating industry-related keywords, it’s good to take your resume one step further by including a technology section, especially if you have a “worker bee” technology job such as software development.  This section allows you to get more specific about the different types of programs in which you’ve been trained or certified.

Changing Careers As An Executive? Here Are Some Tips To Create A Smooth Transition

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

Switching careers at the executive level can seem like an impossible task.  But the reality is that it happens more often than you might think.  As more high-level professionals discover new passions later in their careers, they realize that true happiness is found in making sure their jobs line up with their personal and professional needs.

Have you thought about switching careers but have felt intimidated by the process—especially writing a new resume?  The transition can be relatively smooth if you consider the following ways to make your move:

Thoroughly Study the New Industry

As an executive who has focused on one career for many years, there’s no doubt that you probably know your field inside and out.  If you want to switch to a new field, you have your work cut out for you in attempting to duplicate the level of wisdom and insight you’ve acquired from your many years of hard work.
