First off, I'm just going to put it out there and call for the death of the one page resume. Your resume is one in a stack that’s growing daily, so how do you increase your chances of getting noticed? By making your application count with a carefully crafted resume and thoughtful application. Here are 19 tips on how to get noticed and pulled out of that stack.
I get candidates all the time who have never used a recruitment agency or have had bad experiences in the past and are unsure about using one again. As a recruiter with 7 years of experience in the industry I understand that there are good recruiters and not so good recruiters out there, as with any profession, and a well-known agency doesn't necessarily mean good service, it all depends on the recruiter you're working with. So how do you know if you have a good recruiter? Well don't be afraid to ask questions to figure that out.
Usually it slows down in December with hiring managers and decision makers going on vacation. This year we're getting calls for people to start ASAP. Don't be afraid to make a change in December, you can pursue an opportunity and secure your new job with a start date in January to start fresh with the new year. This way you can finish off the year with your company, get your bonus, go to the christmas party and then give your notice.
