Stand Out when Applying For a Job

December 6, 2014

When you apply for a job most hiring managers will check certain boxes, such as “skill set”, “expertise” and “years of experience”, before they even consider you for the position. Meeting this basic criteria might be enough to get you in the door but it’s not enough to get you considered. To get to the next level in the hiring process, you’ll need to highlight your special talents. Present these well and the hiring manager will put you on the consideration list instead of the other guy.

But, how do you identify your special talents? How do you know which ones are important? How do you talk about them?

Their expert advice is invaluable.

Work Skills and Job Experience Are Good. Standing Out is Better.
