Job Search: Four Ways to Stand Out
Posted May 21, 2012on:
Sometimes it feels hard to stand out in a job search. Here are some great ways to set yourself apart from the pack.
- Do your research. Read up on the industry and the company.
- Volunteer. Look into volunteering — related to your field or just doing good works —and put it on your résumé. Two entry-level applicants and only one has regularly volunteered at a clinic or blood drive…who do you think will get the job?
- Make connections. Volunteering is also a great way to meet people in the industry and make important connections.
- Be positive! Good energy and a positive outlook go a long way in making a good impression.
