Nothing like hearing it from the horse’s mouth … or, in the case of job search, the recruiter’s.
I am impressed by the clarity, consistency, and honesty of these 100 tips shared by recruiters from EMC Corp. It’s a quick read but packed full of spot-on advice along with real recruiting stories (both horrifying and heartwarming).
Boiled down even further, the advice is simple yet profound: Know yourself, know your value to the company, be prepared. Never forget that job search is all about marketing and sales. Be passionate, curious, engaged, honest, sincere. Keep a positive attitude during what can be a long and frustrating process. Network!
And … have a great resume. If yours doesn’t showcase your skills, value, and successes, you’ll never get the chance to wow them in the interview.
