Building a Resume Building a resume
Building a resume 2 Formats:    Chronological  Functional  Does your resume… Scream “Call me” Have MSA’s? (If not, get them!!!) Keywords
Made, Saved, and Achieved’s… Quantifiable Made:  Products/Services you’ve created  Ideas you’ve created Sales Saved:  Time Money  Reduction in costs Achieved:  Greatest Accomplishments
MSA Example What have you made, saved, or achieved for your employers? Provide example Give quantifiable results “I provided technical support to 300 employees with computer difficulties locally and remotely using Altiris Remote Control, resulting in a reduced response time from 3 ½ hours to 2 hours. I reduced number of service tickets 30% from 100 to 70 in my first month.”
Building a virtual presence
Building a Virtual Presence Attract Attention Choose appropriate site Prepare profile carefully Post picture Experience and education MSA’s Keywords Contact information Create network Update frequently
Building a Virtual Presence Create On-line Profiles on Social Media Sites Linked In Facebook Twitter Google You Tube
Finding Opportunities Where do you find jobs?  What is the most effective method?    Post and Pray?  Submit to jobs on job boards? Networking?
Finding Opportunities Where do you find jobs?  If your only answer is…  “Applying to job ads and postings…” …that’s NOT ENOUGH in today’s economy.
Finding Opportunities Apply directly to company websites Apply directly using Job Aggregators  Indeed.com Simplyhired.com clickajob.co.uk Join groups to network Ning.com Google Groups Yahoo! Groups MSN Groups

Apply directly to target companies Network Family Friends (Friends of friends/family)  Colleagues, Managers  (Past and present) Associations/groups
Job Search Strategy How will they find you? Tweak your resume for each job.  Applying via e-mail… Include your resume and cover letter in the body AND Attach resume and cover letter soft copy  Create a follow-up spreadsheet to track applications  Follow up with applications on a weekly basis.
