A Fresh Approach For a Tough Job Market
You’ve heard the stats: Times are tough; the job market is tougher. Millions of job hunters are competing for the best positions. And they’re all smart.
Crowded with scores of qualified job seekers, today’s marketplace presents unique challenges to both candidate and recruiter alike.
The job hunter must focus on getting noticed, making an impression, and landing that interview.
To match job to seeker, the hiring manager is tasked with wading through a vast pool of résumés, all neatly typed with 12-point font, selective bullet points, and one page only.
And so you follow these rigid résumé rules to the letter, producing a carefully constrained document, and hope it gets recognized. For most people, this is the accepted, traditional approach to obtaining gainful employment.
But what if you’re not ‘most people’?
What if you can’t sum up your vision, express your creativity, or capture your enthusiasm on a slim sheet of vellum? In a sea of black and white résumés, how can your job hunting effort make colorful waves?
Using a presentation for your résumé allows you to tell your own story, author your own narrative and bring it to digital life on the screen. You can pitch your vision and highlight your creativity by employing one of the free resume templates available to guide you through the process, step by step.
