“Maximizing Your Job Search: A Key Move for Job Seekers”
Being the author of the book FROM CAMPUS TO CORPORATE which we launched 15 years ago.
A rapidly changing world has created a rapidly changing recruitment dynamic. After mentoring and placing more than 20,000 students and having worked with many recruitment drives and engaging with senior HR personnel of dozens of MNC and top-flight Indian companies, I thought I will share one crucial tip for job seekers, particularly the crew from campus to corporate.
Here is the nugget: Customise your resume painstakingly for each and every job you apply to. This essentially means tailoring the content of their application materials to match the specific requirements and qualifications listed in the job posting.
When you customize your application materials, you demonstrate to the employer that you have taken the time to understand their needs and that you are a good fit for the position. This can help you stand out from other applicants who may be sending generic resumes and cover letters.
To customize your application materials, carefully review the job posting and make note of the required skills, qualifications, and experience. Then, ensure that you correctly highlight these; reorder and reword them to have a particular bearing on the job you are applying for.
By putting thought into customising and crafting your application package, you tip the scales in your favour. Employers notice effort and prefer the candidate that took trouble to apply well. And isn’t that what you want?
