There comes a point in the life of every job seeker when they need to re-write their resume . Maybe you aren’t getting sufficient responses to your job applications or maybe you just feel like it’s time to change things up. Whatever the reason, you should make sure you follow proper resume editing guidelines before you get started.
“I think we should start seeing other people.”
Every nonprofit needs an effective Major Gifts Officer . That’s why you often see openings for this position while browsing job boards. Do you think you have what it takes to make it in this demanding position?
Writing a thank-you note to employers is common practice after an interview or after you are chosen for the job. It’s also important to say “thanks” after you’ve been rejected, too. What you may not realize is that these letters are way more than a formality.
Every job seeker is looking for that one edge that will help get them noticed by employers. Whether it’s overhauling their Facebook page or attending more networking events, job seekers will try just about anything to give themselves an edge.
Living in a modern society has its ups and downs. While all the new technology is great, it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming.
College graduates entering the “real world” face an improving but still difficult job market. Yet they have one thing that gives them an advantage compared to other job seekers: Youth.
Employers’ job posts are their version of a resume. Just like how you are looking for the perfect job, nonprofits are framing themselves as the perfect match for applicants. And the same way that they look for red flags in applications, you too can look for warning signs in job listings.
Hiring managers will usually conclude a job interview by saying something along the lines of “You should hear back from us within a week or two.” This is done to set expectations and to protect them from getting follow up calls too early. What do you do when those two weeks go by without any word from the employer?
One of the most frustrating aspects of the job search is not hearing back from employers after sending in your application. If you polled most job seekers, a large majority would probably tell you they’d rather hear they weren’t selected for an interview than hearing nothing at all. Nobody wants to feel like they are sending resumes into a black hole.
