Today's job hunters need an edge

Wallet Pop Blog (Abridged)

Job hunting is a far more specialized process now, than it has ever been before. Today's Human Resource Managers are highly trained and have new tools and a multitude of new information sources to utilize in the hiring process. Only having a sharp resume isn't enough to catch their attention anymore. HR Managers place less emphasis upon what you have accomplished, while placing more upon how you'll fit in.

Gone are the days when you could expect job hunting success by writing up one good resume and then carpet bombing a host of potential employers. Today, the most effective resume creation strategy requires that you tune your resume to each potential employer. This strategy involves presenting less of what you have done, and more of what you intend to do. You begin this process by researching the company and finding out what the job entails. You can then figure out how to present yourself as fitting into your prospective employer's needs.

Describe how you intend to pick up the job and carry it into the realm of success. Explain your innovative strategies and show your enthusiasm. Describe how you could help the company to be the leader in developing some cutting edge technologies. Explaining how you would like to streamline processes or trim company costs. The key is to take those concepts and frame them in the context of that particular company's forward view. Share a vision of company success with your interviewer, and they'll often reward you with an invitation to join the team.
