Advice for you

To help you on your job search


Create a standout resume

A resume is a paper representation of who you are. When it comes to format, there is no right or wrong way, however, there are certain criteria you want to always include. Here are some useful tips to keep in mind when you are creating your resume. After all, this is the tool used to sell yourself.

  • Your name and contact information. Make sure this is correct so that companies can contact you.
  • Your previous work experiences. This is important and must be accurate (dates, titles, and companies). Often, employers will want references from your previous employers, so make sure the information that corresponds to your experience is true. Also, match your LinkedIn profile with this too! People do cross-reference.
  • Bullet points and headlines should be used in your resume to keep things concise and organized.
  • It always good to have a section where you list your skills.
  • Use metrics, targets, achievements; numbers go along way and often say more than words.
  •  Proofread your resume, and then have someone close to you do the same to avoid any spelling or grammar mistakes. Errors can make you seem careless or display a lack of attention to detail.

Candidate process, sourcing and interview

How to prep for a job interview

  • Study your resume and reflect on each of the jobs you had in your professional career. What were your primary responsibilities? How was your success measured? Did you often hit your targets or complete the projects/tasks assigned to you? What metrics were you responsible for, if any? Why did you leave? Did you leave on good terms? Thinking back to each of the jobs in your professional career will allow you to reflect on the experiences and be ready to speak to them in your interview. Learning about why you left roles will also make sure you really understand what you need in a company to make you stay.
  • Research the company so you understand not only what they do but who they are. Knowing the culture, values, and mission of the company you are applying for is necessary for you to understand before you interview for the role. These components should contribute to determining if this opportunity is what you are looking for.
  • Look up who will be interviewing you. LinkedIn provides insight into the professional career of many people. Looking into the person scheduled to interview you will help you understand how they got to where they are, if you have any similarities and gives you a base for good conversation to calm any nerves you may have prior to your interview.
  • Review the job description and make sure you are capable of effectively doing the job. Any questions you have about the job or that you are not sure of, should be addressed in the interview. The interview is also your opportunity to understand what is expected of you in this position.
  • Prepare questions. This is your time to ask questions to make sure you understand the opportunity, the company and clarify anything you are not 100% sure about. Questions are good and show the client that you are seriously interested in the position and company.

Got your interview?
How to ace it!

  • Arrive on time. That means arrive early. Give yourself about 5-10 minutes of leeway in case you can’t find parking, transit delays or even a long elevator wait. You’d be surprised how quickly 10 minutes passes, and how much of difference those 10 minutes make! By arriving early, you give yourself the opportunity to relax, prepare and familiarize yourself with the environment.
  • Dress clean cut, be professional but make sure your dress code is in line with the company’s policy.
  • Bring an extra copy of your resume. That way you have one to present to the employer and one to follow along with.  
  • Be yourself. The best way to really see if this will work or not, it is to be yourself. Be honest about who you are, what you are looking for and about your experience. If you want this to work long term, it is important to show your true colors right away, the client can get to know you and evaluate whether you are the right person for the job.
  • Be prepared. Do your research on the company, prepare a list of questions you have about the job itself, and do some research into the person who will be interviewing you. By spending a little extra time preparing prior to the interview, you will not only feel more comfortable going in, but demonstrate to the interviewer that you are serious about the position.

After the interview: now what?

Call your recruiter and let them know how it went. Didn’t go so well? Let us know why. This way, we can make sure you are lined up with a company that is a better fit next time. Think it went terrific? Great! We will follow up with our client and get back to you with the next steps.

Wait patiently. Good things take time.
