Marketing You - The Key to Landing A Job

By February 22, 2014

Follow me on:

Are you one of the millions looking for a job today? I feel for you.  Everyday I hear of someone that has been laid off or lost their job. To be honest, I tried to figure out a way that I could help, so I started talking to those that are job hunting and asked questions. I realized that many don't understand that without marketing themselves, they don't have a chance.

Truth be told many of you don't know how to market yourself, which is why I wrote this article Marketing You!

While important, it's simply not enough to put your resume on the heaviest or fanciest paper. Your resume must stand out among the crowd; especially when most employers are only taking 5 seconds to scan your resume and make a determination on whether you are qualified for the position. That determination comes from what you have to say about yourself and how you showcase your qualities. A resume must serve as your marketing tool and honestly initially it's the only one you've got. I want to show you how you can create a resume that will grab the attention of that prospective employer and move you into the next step of the selection process.

I promise that learning how to market yourself is not as hard as it sounds. It's simply taking a look at you, your skills, and your experience and making a determination of why you are unique and why they should select you. Are you ready to get started? If so, let's begin the process of learning how to effectively marketing you.
