Some people always get the job, and you want to know how they do it. You have a lot to offer an employer, but you keep getting passed up — and you don’t understand why.
The Las Vegas employment scene is filled with amazing opportunities, and people willing to work for them. It might sound simple, but the secret to always getting job offers is taking the time to go the extra mile.
Candidates willing to invest the time and energy into the hiring process get hired. Here’s some advice to help you follow their lead.
Five Tips to Finally Get the Job You Want
Use Your Network
Your connections can help you get hired. Employers receive a high volume of resumes for the best jobs, so try to get a personal introduction to the hiring manager. Use LinkedIn to see if you have any contacts who might be able to make this happen, because it can make all the difference.
Customize Your Resume
In the past, you could get away with sending one generic resume for every job you apply to. However, things have changed, and modern hiring managers expect to receive a resume tailored to the job at hand. Failing to take this step sends the impression you’re not that excited about the position and limits your ability to sell yourself for that specific role.
Research the Company
Practically speaking, you should research any company you apply to, because you want to make sure it’s really a place you’d fit in. Beyond that, taking the time to learn about the organization also allows you to write a better cover letter and resume. If you’re invited to interview for the position, you’ll also be asked what you know about the company and why you want to work there — and it will be very obvious if you haven’t done your research.
Know Why You’re the Perfect Fit
People who always get job offers are experts at selling themselves. They go into the interview eager to explain why they’re the best person for the position. This involves touting everything from their unique skills and experience to highlighting their cultural fit.
Make a Great First Impression
Candidates who tend to get job offers never underestimate the power of a first impression. They show up to the interview well-groomed, in appropriate attire and never forget extra copies of their resume. These people also take care to arrive a few minutes early, treat everyone with respect and are cognizant of their body language. It might sound pretty basic, but everyone doesn’t take these steps, and hiring managers notice.
