If you've ever driven on a highway going as fast as everyone else, you might have noticed advertisement billboards calling out for your attention. You might not have been able to read the entire billboard, but what you picked up captured enough of your attention to make the next u-turn and place an order at the drive-through window. The same gravitating force that's on billboards aught to be on your very own resume. Activate Scout's professional team creates attractive resumes and cover letters to grab the attention of the human resource personnel.
Interviews are not Tricky
The job market is open everyday, 24/7, and to have secured an interview means something was catchy on your resume, which also implies you have a special talent the employer wants -- potentially seeing you as a good fit for the position you've applied to. The next step is to validate that you are a good fit for the position by attending an interview.
Your Scout will utilize Skype to train/sharpen your interview techniques. Think of it this way, an interview is no longer a billboard scenario between you and the potential employer, because you've already captured the employer's attention! Now it's time to present what you know about the employer and what's on your resume. Activate Scout will sharpen your skills and help you make a solid link between you and your resume!
The Secrete to Selling Yourself
Activate Scout believes in four major principles that one must exercise during an interview: 1. Know your resume. It would be a little embarrassing if you didn't know what you did at your last position. Aside from knowing what you did, you need to be able to defend every job-skill that is listed on your resume. 2. Know the position. As soon as you know when the interview will take place, put a little time aside to study your resume. See how the various areas of your resume applies to the job description. Show that you are the perfect match. 3. Smile. Relax. Come across as human; it surely can be terrifying, but remember, they called you, which means there is something about you they want! So, be confident, and that in itself can sell you. 4. Follow-up. Send a thank you note. Make yourself memorable, and simply show that you are looking forward to being part of the team.
As long as you need, Activate Scout will continue to keep looking for a successful career path for you, even if you just finished conducting an interview with a potential employer.
