Re: Tips on Getting Hired
No one has mentioned the T-letter, which is also a good approach under certain circumstances. When we analyze the audience/employer we should be able to figure out what they want from us and how to communicate that to them.
No matter how many resumes a hiring manager is going to have to look at, you've got about 3-10 seconds to get their attention so you go into the read/consider pile instead of the round file. With competition the way it is for some jobs, an applicant has to use every possible technique to get noticed. Of course, it's all moot if you don't match their requirements in the first place. But even then, I've seen applications where I just had to call in the person to meet them. And I've even hired people whose application convinced me I needed to learn more about them.
