Focus on you first as the foundation. Your beliefs, attitude, and energy will determine your success. Spend time building up your confidence.
Your resume is a marketing document, not an autobiography that details every past role and responsibility. Your objective it trying to prompt a purchase decision, which is to invite you in for an interview.
Delve into job boards and companies' careers pages. Pull a few postings, and find what theme or criteria keep coming up. For instance, if you continually find that they need someone who can solve complex problems and navigate ambiguity, and you can do that, then put it in your resume.
Remember all of the skills you bring to the table. If you're applying for a project management role, consider highlighting the complementary skills you bring to the table. However, it should be a value add, not a random sidebar of your career.
Showing how your specific background allows you to bring a new perspective to your work will help you to stand out above other candidates.
Show a company what you can do for them. Don't put too much emphasis on what you want.
For instance, when asked "Why do you want to work here?", don't start with "I want to grow..." They really want to know how will you contribute to their business. Reframe your answer and use it to draw attention to the solutions you can provide. Furthermore, share how you've done it before.
Online job boards are only a small percentage of the available market. Hiring managers are flooded with resumes from online job boards and might not look at every one.
Instead, spend more time networking with friends, second-degree connections, or keep an ear open for positions before they're posted. Hiring managers will naturally start with candidates who've already been vetted.
It is too late to try and network when you need something. Networking is about mutually beneficial professional relationships developed over time.
Start by connecting with three different contacts a week. Then, when you want to find a job, you have many people to support you.
Most hiring managers receive a large volume of applications. It is impossible for them to screen everyone.
It is a mistake if you have spent time acting on an opportunity with a great resume and cover letter, and then not following up. Follow up with every position.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
