Agenda I. II. III. IV. V. Assistance in Brevard Resume Help Networking – Get Your Name Out There Interview Techniques Follow Up!

I. Assistance • www.EmployFlorida.com • www.Indeed.com • Brevard Workforce • Social Media • Staffing companies • Many more…

II. Resumes • More than 1 page is ok as long as it’s relevant • Tailor! – Objective – Work History – Skills • Cover Letter • Email – include (but make sure it’s appropriate) • Achievements rather than tasks performed

II. Resumes (cont’d) • Make sure your skills match the job description (key words are key !!) • Highlight the positive (seems obvious but…) • Know what your resume says and be able to talk about each item on your resume! – Exactly what you did and how you added value – Gaps in employment

III. Networking • • • • • Chamber Events SPECIAL Venues for YOUR Industry Target a Company and Get Referred In! Ask your friends/family who’s hiring. Get on LinkedIn! It’s a great resource to meet and get to know the right decision makers • Get out and be seen in the community! Think of yourself as the best and only salesperson of YOU!

IV. Interview Techniques (cont’d) • KNOW YOUR “AUDIENCE” • Dress ABOVE the job. Neat appearance includes clothing, hair, nails, shoes polished…EVERYTHING! • Show up early • Turn off your phone • Prepare for the interview – Know something about the company (pet peeve of HR people to not know) – Be ready to answer commonly asked interview questions – Know the interviewer’s name (and how to pronounce it) • Walk in confidently, smile, look the interviewer in the eye, and give them a FIRM handshake!

Interviewing (cont’d) Before the interview: Consider the job description. – What skills are listed as qualifications for the job? (‘team player, strong attention to detail, problem solvers, customer service’) – Now match your skills to the qualifications. – If you don’t have a job description, think about the skills that might be necessary for the job or speak to an advisor in career services.

Follow Up! • Be persistent and not annoying! • Send a handwritten THANK YOU note – it’s classy and it keeps your name in front of them • Follow up with a call within 3 days if you have not heard back (unless they told you a specific timeframe) • If you don’t get the position, ask for feedback. It may make the next interview, the winning interview!
