Elevate your Resume

How to elevate your job application

Only apply for jobs that you actually qualify for:

This does not mean that you have to have every single bullet point listed in the job description. Employers will flood a job posting with a wish list of qualifications that any one candidate is unlikely to possess. Read the job description carefully to make sure that you understand the duties and challenges and if you can make a contribution in the role. Then go ahead and apply.

Explain how you can stand out:

Employers want to hire someone that will make their lives easier. Your resume should include what your past successes can accomplish for them. Avoid listing duties and task, but instead focus on your achievements.  Describe your accomplishments in a way that highlight their relevance to the job you are applying for.

Fit your Resume

If the job title you are applying for does not fit with your resume, chances are you are not the right fit for the job. Similarly, even if you have the qualifications for the job, if your career objective does not match with the role, you are unlikely to get hired. It gives the impression that you would be a bad fit for the job, and that you would not stay very long in the position.
