Learning Your Strengths and Weaknesses
When it comes to the job search process, most prospective employees already have an idea of what industry they want to work in. In many cases, they can narrow it down to specific companies that they are interested in. But not everyone has the key resume and interview skills needed to make an impactful first impression. First impressions can mean the difference between getting a job offer or not, so it is important to show your best through resumes and job interviews. In order to get the most out of these first impressions, more prospective employees are hiring Resume & Interview Coaches. These coaches are professionally certified and have experience working with multiple job seekers. It is the job of a Resume & Interview Coach to know exactly what employers are looking for, so that you can let your most pertinent and attractive skills shine through.
Making Your Resume Attractive to Specific Employers
Not all employers are looking for the same thing. This is a key fact that is lost on many job seekers. When you are going through the job interview process, you need to personalize each resume and interview for your prospective employer. Certain employers value certain skillsets more than others. This doesn’t mean that you should purposefully leave major periods off of your resume, but it means that you should specifically tailor your resume to show off the kind of skills that your prospective employer is looking for. This is exactly what Resume & Interview Coaches are trained to do—help you show off the skills that you’ve developed, so that you can put yourself in the best light during the evaluation process.
Finding Your Interview Comfort Zone
Interviews with a new prospective employer can be jarring, and it is easy to feel anxious or overwhelmed. Resume & Interview Coaches help you to find your balance, so that you can feel confident every time you sit down to interview. You want to give honest answers that show your interviewers that you are qualified and engaging. You’ll also want to do some research on your potential new workplace—this way your employer will know that you are truly interested in the position, and you’ll also be able to ask specific questions about the job to see if you are a good fit. Resume & Interview Coaches are here to help you through that process, so that you can find a job that is a great fit for both sides.
