WERC is here to help you understand the importance of each step in achieving your employment goals. They are not pipedreams! Your goals are what keep you heading in the right direction to confidently overcome challenges and become financially independent once and for all.
Landing your dream job is not just a matter of searching for job openings, you need to prepare. The way you explain and organize your experience in a resume, introduce yourself in a cover letter, and handle an interview can mean the difference between landing that dream job and losing it to another candidate.
Here are some of the important points that the experienced WERC staff will review with you as you start down your path to a better future.
Resumes are the old standby of offering the employer a glimpse of what you have to offer their company or organization. Gone are the days of a dull and run of the mill listing of your job duties. Now more than ever you need to brush the surface (or start digging deep) to find accomplishments that you made on the job and highlight those moments. New bullet points are fresh with actions you took and positive outcomes.
The best possible way to find your way across the table from a hiring manager is to start with a resume template that is unique to you. From there you can create target resumes incorporating keywords from job descriptions that have your name written all over them.
We’ll help you begin crafting, organizing and phrasing the best resume for you.
Cover letters are the cincher for setting you apart from the crowd and landing your resume at the top of the interview pile. They complement the resume in such a way that they give insight into who you are as a professional and hopefully offer a positive impression to the hiring manager.
Why write a cover letter? Cover letters allow you to introduce yourself and show aspects of your personality and work style that will fit the position and mesh with the business as a whole. Cover letters give you a chance to briefly touch upon any gaps in your resume in a succinct and clear way. The rule of thumb is to not go back further than ten years of work experience on your resume, but what if you have relevant experience from fifteen years ago for the job in which you are applying? We’ll help you craft a cover letter that shows how your past experience goes hand in hand with the job description.
We’ll work with you to help you create the best cover letter that puts you ahead of the pack!
Job Interviews are the chance for you to seal the deal! As nerve-wracking and inevitable as they are, there are strategies that are in your realm of control. With proper planning, such as researching the company and staff, clearly understanding the job description and writing down the right questions you have for the hiring manager, you are easing your stress level and making yourself much more employable.
