Be Great, Not Ordinary: Grab Employers’ Attention

In grim economic times, it’s even more important to refine your resume to be as on-point and outstanding as possible. Since many people are out of work, employers are undoubtedly being pelted with unqualified, unimpressive resumes from workers desperate to find a job. Unless you want to get caught in the shuffle, you’ll need to take steps to pull away from the pack.

Ryan Healy at Employee Evolution posted some advice for companies looking to hire great people to build a great company, but job seekers can also glean some wisdom from Ryan’s words. Companies are only looking for the best people to help make their vision a reality. Mundane, run-of-the-mill candidates are not on the top of their “must-hire” list. In order to break through, only apply for jobs which you’re well-qualified for, and make sure you have the skills to go above and beyond expectations.

Don’t be ordinary when searching for a new job. Be extraordinary.
