5 Ways to Instantly Improve Your Job Search Results

By now you’ve learned the traditional ways of job searching don’t work anymore. A few years ago you could put your resume up on Monster and wait for the phone to ring. Those days are gone. So here are five things you can easily do that will quickly improve your job search results.

1. Scan your resume for 15 seconds – what message does it send?

That’s exactly what an employer will do so if you don’t get a clear message about what you can do for them, then it is not a good resume. Since this is the most important document in your career, make the investment and have a good resume professionally prepared. But be careful as there are a lot of scams and mediocre providers out there so see my FREE 10-point checklist on how to choose a resume writing service.
