For Candidates

Tips & Advice

Resumes:

  • Keep your resume simple and clean.
  • Think about how quickly your resume is reviewed or scanned automatically by a software or an applicant tracking system.
  • Highlight your accomplishments so you stand out.
  • 98% of job seekers are eliminated at the initial resume screen; only the top 2% of candidates make it to the interview, according to Job Market Experts.


Interviewing:

  • Don't wing it, take time to prepare before an interview (even a phone interview).
  • Be ready to interview yourself.  Often interviewers aren't very good at interviewing so have a few projects to highlight and weave them into the interview conversations to demonstrate what you've done.
  • Show you want the role.  Employers want to see someone who wants to work at their company.  Many employers shy away from the less enthusiastic.
  • Ask questions - find out more about the role, the team, the challenges, and how you may fit in.
