You see a job on a company’s website that interests you. You gather your materials, apply with enthusiasm to their online portal, and get an email back acknowledging your information has been received. Now what? Usually, nothing. On a rare occasion you might receive an email saying you were not selected, and even less frequently, you might get selected for an interview. If you are one of the few that does get an interview, often times it might take weeks, or longer, to hear back from the employer. And if you do not move to next round you almost never receive feedback on why you were not selected to move forward in the interview process.
Job seekers experience a great deal of uncertainty and have limited control over this process. Thus, they often send out 100s of resumes and applications in the hopes of receiving a handful of interviews; just to play the odds.
This workshop will provide information on how to articulate your “value” to an employer through common communication tools (e.g. resume, LinkedIn, interviews). In addition, we will discuss the employer’s perspective about job postings, applicant screening, interviewing, and ultimately hiring the best candidate. Understanding the employer’s needs and how they view the hiring process gives you a better chance to stand out as the best candidate.
