HOW DOES AN INFOGRAPHIC RESUME HELP IN GETTING A JOB?

Does a graphic resume replete with designs look professional? Do employers like them?

The answer to all the questions is that a creative resume design can often work in your favor. As per the recent study, recruiters feel that the most important aspect of a resume which acts as a deal maker or breaker for them is the - format / design of the resume.

The most ideal way to attract a recruiter is by making it easy for them to identify your qualifications and understand your career story in a short amount of time. The trick is to stick to a concise, to the point and an attractive resume design that avoids white space and makes it easy for the recruiter to quickly skim your information and understand your career story.

IS THIS WORTH IT? AM I IN THE RIGHT JOB?

The first word that comes in your mind when you are changing your career is ‘excited’. But choosing the right job is equally important to remain as excited till the end. Some quick enlightenment to ascertain whether you are in right job:

Work Environment : Do you dream of working in a monotonous building with a fixed hour schedule or in an adventurous outdoors with a flexible schedule. Keep asking yourself this question till you get the perfect answer.

Salary & Compensation : The question to be asked in this context is whether you are you to accept the job even if you expect to receive a low pay? Is it worth separating from your family to accept a job in a different location that you are interested in?

Besides earning a satisfying paycheck, another indication of career growth is the appreciation & respect that you get and feel from your colleagues. Ask yourself whether your mind growth is at par with your career growth.

LINKEDIN – AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR RECRUITMENT

LinkedIn is a website that connects a recruiter to their potential employee.

1. LinkedIn allows you to keep in touch with an employee who has previously contributed to your company. With its social media features, allows you to connect with an employee instantly. You are just one message away from connecting!

2. LinkedIn profiles are so accurate that some websites have considered using it as an alternative to a resume. It is a website you log in to almost every day so most people update their profile every now and then to attract the attention of their client.

3. LinkedIn is the most popular business related networking site, and that says it all! This social media is gaining popularly rapidly, and hundreds of businessmen religiously spend 2-3 hours searching for potential employee.

THE IMPORTANCE OF A COVER LETTER IN THE JOB APPLICATION PROCESS

As per the current research, most of the applicants feel that cover letter is a secondary document of the job application process, but studies shown that more than 50 percent of employers admit they prefer candidates to send a cover letter with their application.

Cover letters however should not be generic and customized matching your requirements of the position.

The letter should focus on explaining why you’re a good fit for the position and the company.

Cover letter should not emphasize on your needs and expectations with the job but on the contrary should talk in the interests of the job descriptions shared by the hiring managers.

MORE NETWORKING = MORE INTERVIEW CALLS

One of the most important aspect of getting a new job is getting noticed in the first place. If you’re applying to jobs online, it might take you longer to get noticed as a recruiter gets thousands of applicants for each online posting.

Amidst the competition, one should establish a strong social network to make the job search easier. There are various professional sites like LinkedIn which connects you to potential recruiters easily in a nick of time.

Think about people from past jobs, friends or colleagues and add them in your network. Additionally connections can also be made with mutual friends for finding a new job. Establish & cement your connections socially and notice the difference.

THE IMPORTANCE OF A PHOTOGRAPH IN YOUR RESUME

There always have been mixed reviews over whether you should include an image on your CV. While some experts say it is a big no while submitting an application, others believe it’s a great way to outshine from the crowd of applicants applying for the same job.

As per the recent study, adding a photograph was included in the optional field of a professional resume. The idea behind keeping it optional is that with a photo, a lot of bias reviews are attached for the applicant. A recruiter sometimes just by looking at the photograph judges the competency and personality of the applicant, which adds to pre-conceived notions.

In cases where an applicant is confident about including her photograph, it should be a professional head-shot passport photograph with a white background. Thus, adding a photograph sometimes acts as a boon and might also turn against your favor at unusual times.
