Job Landing Magic: Get Hired During the Holidays
A good friend of mine posted on Facebook that she had perfect sweatshirt weather at the beach recently.
Going to the NJ shore during the off-season is truly one of my favorite times during the year. The beach isn’t flooded with summer beachgoers trying to take advantage of the summer sun (even if safely 6-feet apart). Instead, it is sprinkled with just a few people who love the beach all year round and not just at the height of the season (even more than 6-feet apart… my favorite!). These are serious beach-lovers… not the seasonal sort.
Picturing this tranquil beach sparsely populated by bundled-up beachgoers with the chill in the air, somehow led me to think of recruiter’s email inboxes.
It made me think of the fact that, just like off-season beachgoers, successful job seekers also go where the majority does not.
(Really. It did make me think of this. I know I need to get out more… but that is another post on a much different type of blog.)
Think about it:
Would you want your resume to be 1 of 50 resumes in an inbox or 1 in 2000 resumes captured by an ATS resume database?
Clearly, no guarantees either way, but the odds of the former are clearly preferred.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have your resume wrapped in the proverbial warm sweatshirt of an uncrowded, sandy inbox instead of amongst the herd of safely-distanced summer sun worshippers who fight for parking spots to get on the boardwalk at the same time?
Savvy job seekers experience job landing magic by avoiding the herd, getting positive results, and experiencing qualitative interactions.
Be the person on the sparsely populated beach in the off-season with the warm sweatshirt relishing in the crisp, salty air. It is a more serene and civilized approach to enjoying the beach.
As is keeping your resume out of a resume database and, instead, inside a recruiter’s inbox.
It is these ways of enjoying life differently, as with employing a variety of non-mainstream job search tactics, which can add dimension to life’s pleasures and improve the results of your search to find job landing magic.
