PRLog - Feb. 27, 2012 - BOURNEMOUTH, U.K. -- Global Platinum Ltd know that although gaining employment is subject to many unpredictable factors that are far beyond your control (such as employer perceptions, competition and personal choice), there are countless factors that are controllable that you may be doing wrong. Remember, your resume only has 10 seconds to make an impact. When the hiring manager has 100 resumes on his or her desk and needs to pick the top 5, all it takes is the simplest error for your resume to be deleted.
The Managing director at Global Platinum Ltd’s advice is this: If you’re going to spend time applying for jobs then do it properly. You are not going to get an interview by sending out a resume that is written or formatted incorrectly. By doing just the smallest things correctly you will find that success is just around the corner.
Global Platinum Ltd asks: Is your resume full of clichés? Do you use words such as “hardworking”
The Managing Director at Global Platinum Ltd states your resume is your selling tool. Take a look at it. Are you proud of how it reads? Does it sell your strengths, skills and accomplishments?
Global Platinum Ltd gives 15 reasons why you may be missing out on getting that interview:
• Generic resume
• Resumes that do not inspire
• Clichéd resume
• Your resume does not use key words
• Your resume is formatted incorrectly
• Your resume is not targeted
• You don’t use a cover letter
• Your cover letter is boring/generic/
• Your resume and cover letter are too embellished
• Your job search is restricted to the Internet/Google/
• You are only seeking out the perfect job (Is there such a thing?)
• Spelling mistakes / bad grammar
• Lack of professionalism
• No follow up
• Unqualified / Overqualified (you need to be realistic)
