With unemployment at an all-time low, in the hottest IT market in over a decade, NOW is the time to set yourself apart from the rest! When competing for a job, it’s important to accentuate your attributes in an effective manner to optimize your chances at winning over the client. No detail is too small when trying to make a good impression. In a world flooded with IT professionals, how can I shine? I’m glad you asked…

  • Nine times out of ten, the client will see your resume before they see you! Being able to communicate and articulate efficiently is often a quality that is sought in a candidate. Something as simple as a spelling error or inconsistent format could disqualify you for a role that you are a perfect fit for. Take the extra minute and look at your resume through client eyes!
  • Be available and flexible to interview on short notice! Needing a 24/48-hour notice to interview, as opposed to being able to interview upon request, may be the difference between landing the opportunity or not. Be prepared to pivot when presented with an opportunity!
  • Have go-to talk points about your experiences and skill-set. Of course, you know what you do and what you’ve done, but are you able to effectively communicate them to others? You never know when you’re going to find yourself in a situation where casual conversation could turn into a job opportunity.
  • You know what they say, it’s all about who you know! Work with a recruiter that you trust. Building a relationship with someone who has eyes, ears and connections all throughout the industry could be that career advancement that you’re looking for. Equip your recruiter with all things, you, and watch as your resume lands on the doorstep of your dream job!
