The steps before your resume and why you need them


Long webinar (about an hr.) on the steps before resume

Steps before resume

First steps in your job search and why you need to do these before you write your resume!

Be visible online – show your best and most interesting accomplishments (necessary but not sufficient)

Be known – but only to the people in the companies you are interested in (so know what your criteria are and which companies meet them.  Then network to gain information before you write a resume)

Be remembered, liked and trusted (these are done through appropriate follow up)

Write a resume using the information you gained from your conversations with the people in that particular company.  If you have not gotten that information, you are basically asking the interviewer to figure out (based on your skills) where you would fit into his organization.  He doesn’t have the time for that – he is hiring to solve a problem.  Can you do that?  Can he trust you to solve it?
