YOUR IMAGE is EVERYTHING when it comes to landing or losing a job. Therefore, YOU HAVE TO SHINE (on paper and on the Internet), bringing to the attention of prospective employers your unique attributes and qualifications.

Since thousands of qualified candidates are applying for a single position, you must make the right impression by gaining and maintaining an image of professionalism and talent. I have some suggestions for you:

  1. Make as many introductions as possible to potential hiring parties every week. This will strengthen your networking relationships and position you as someone who “knows people.”
  2. Dress for success. Nix those falling hems and high-water pants. If you are not a talented seamstress / tailor, invest in one.
  3. Tell the hiring authority something about them. Research the company you want to join and let the hiring party know that you have done your homework.
  4. When phoning hiring authorities, always ask, “Is this a good time for you to talk?” Otherwise, you never know if it’s not a good time to talk. If it isn’t, you may be wasting your breath and your chance for hire.
  5. See and hear yourself as others do. A truly dedicated resume writer / career coach will provide you feedback on your posture, stance, eye contact, and a lot of other subjective matters. Take the comments in stride and learn from them.
  6. Remember that helping YOU OPEN DOORS TO INTERVIEWS is WHAT I DO.
