Even before the current recession began, Human Resources experts told us that most people are so nervous in job interviews that are too nervous to make a good impression in their first interview, and land a job on their second or third attempts. Another point the HR people reiterated is that the average resume ends up in the dont call pile somewhere from 90-95% of the time. Taken together, these points mean that if you use an average resume to apply for 10 jobs each week, the odds are that you that you wont get an interview until your ninth week, by which point you are so anxious and nervous that talk yourself out of a job, leading to another nine week wait for your next interview, at which you are more relaxed and might impress your interviewer and win the job. So it was no surprise when one study showed that the average executive or professional should expect their job hunt to take between 18 to 27 weeks. On one occasion in my own pre-resume writing business career, I found out by painful personal experience that these studies results were indeed accurate. Remember too, that both studies were done before the recession. The average job hunt nowadays, when even janitorial openings are getting 300 or more applicants, will likely take longer.
Employers look for the resume objectives and the best selling proposition in the resume. It varies from one job to the other (field of work) and the employer's requirements. Nevertheless, the basic things remain the same, the ultimate selling proposition and that is what candidates should focus on.
Once again, you will see that as you list these keywords in your previous job experience, the hiring manager will keep nodding his or her head as they think, "This is the kind of person and experience I am looking for." You should do this with each of the previous jobs you had (again, where it is appropriate), and it's easy if you keep a copy of the job description in front of you as you tailor your resume.
Now more than ever, companies have intensified their focus on one area of your performance: money. Employer want leaders who can make, save, and control it, all in order to fight the economic downturn.
