A good resume is essential to successfully gaining your desired job. Your applications and resumes need to be the most precise, clear, and exact that they can be. I will spend the next several days going into this in detail because it is that important.
Until I sat down and talked with hiring managers, I didn’t understand that this is where most people lose their job bids. Many people don’t realize this when they’re applying for jobs.
Your job application and resume speak volumes about what an employer can expect from you. A well crafted resume and application are great. One with fuzzy activities or dates will lose you the job.
For today I want to let you know how employers know if your application and resume are correct. They run a background check on all candidates who look like a good fit.
A line worker could be handling thousands of dollars worth of inventory. A janitor or custodian could carry the keys to every sensitive building area. Employers will do this for all good candidates because everyone they hire has to be trusted, not just the top brass.
If your dates and other information align with the background check, you pass to the next round. If not, they stop your chances there. They probably won’t even tell you why.
We will get more into this tomorrow. I will show you ways to ensure what your application and resume is accurate.
