What can Job-seekers do to increase their chances of getting an interview?
Apply for jobs Monday morning
Mondays are the best days to apply for a job. Your resume is on the top of the pile for recruiters and your chances of getting an interview are increased.
We are in the age of social media so use this to your advantage. Ramp up your social media plan and take the time to update your LinkedIn profile. It is also a good idea to clean up your presence on Facebook, Twitter etc. and make sure your settings are appropriate. Many employers Google candidates before agreeing to an interview.
Volunteer Your Time
If you are able to find a place to volunteer that uses your skills and expertise, you will gain valuable experience. Not only that, you never know where your next connection will come from. It doesn’t stop there, many employers look to see what kind of volunteering you have on your resume.
Yes, it sounds strange, but the benefits of physical activity are truly beneficial for job-seekers. Searching for work is stressful and can cause even the most successful individuals to become insecure. Endorphins are released when you exercise and they will make you feel happier and more motivated to keep job hunting.
