*Video:watch bob on the fox business channel as he talks about ways to find a job and stand out from the crowd using tips from the career accelerator program
With so many people applying for jobs online, you need a way to differentiate yourself.
You have to be more than just another resume in a stack of resumes.
But it’s difficult to find a way to stand out from the rest.
In this Fox Business segment, I talk about how
The Career Accelerator Program can show you how to differentiate yourself from the crowd and get the job you want.
What You Can Do To Get The Job You Want
Here are some tips outlined in the FOX segment to help you get the job you want.
Stop Looking Online
The more you look online, the more you’re competing with everyone else.
Instead, identify your skills and tun those skills into problem solving solutions for employers.
Therefore, you can specifically go after certain jobs with certain skills and not compete with the masses.
Today, if you don’t differentiate, all you are is a resume in a stack of resumes that is most likely being screened by an automated process.
And you may never even get to the hiring manager.
Do I Need A Lot Of Experience?
The Career Accelerator Program lays out a proven process and step-by-step instructions when applying for a job.
We let you in on how hiring managers think so you can tailor your approach. It’s like having the answers to a test.
This program helps you get a job regardless of the economy.
Don’t Apply To Too Many Places
Before applying for any position do some research to determine a company’s problems and how you can help solve them.
Then, only apply for jobs with companies who have those particular sets of problems and challenges that you can solve.
Narrow you search.
This is not a game of numbers where you send your resume out to everyone.
Focus on the hiring managers that really need your help.
Then, build a custom marketing campaign that helps them solve their problems.
The key is to do this without even asking for the job.
How Many Jobs Should You Apply To?
You should apply to about a dozen jobs.
Make sure they are well targeted because you have to keep the campaigns going.
This is a far different approach to just sending out dozens of cover letters or resumes.
The Career Accelerator Program shows you how to set up a 12 step marketing plan.
These steps allow you to stay in contact with the hiring manager over a period of time in order to develop a
relationship that culminates in you being ask to come in for an interview.
The whole process takes time and effort.
That is why it is recommended that you apply for about a dozen jobs so you can keep the campaigns going.
Don’t Send Your Resume. Seriously.
Most resumes look like everyone else’s.
It’s a static two dimensional document.
Instead, send something called a “One Sheet”.
A One Sheet is a dynamic representation of what you bring to the table.
It outlines the problems the employer faces and how you’ve solved them in the past.
It also includes measurable results, references and testimonials from past employers as well as relevant career history and contact information.
Include graphics and print it out on nice, glossy paper.
By creating a dynamic and engaging document, it will stand out in a stack of resumes.
Nowadays its important to rise above the competition and show how you are different.
With unemployment rates high and so many people applying to every position, differentiating yourself has never been more important.
The Career Accelerator Program will help you stand out and get the job you want.
