  • The Application Process – the best way to apply for a job is online. That is how most companies have streamlined their application process. However, if they would your resume mailed to them, it would be specified someplace in the job description. Additionally, if you know someone who works for the company, make sure to get in contact with them. Knowing someone on the inside is the easiest way to get your resume pushed to the top of the pile.
  • How Should I Format My Resume? Most companies use an applicant tracking system to sort through resumes and decide which candidates have the right experience necessary for the job. Using a clean word document or a PDF will help the tracking system accurately read and sort your resume. Additionally your LinkedIn is an extension of your resume. Make sure to keep that up to date. It is common practice now for recruiters to do a social media search for you to check out your online presence.
  • Check for errors – a grammatical error is the quickest way to show a potential employer your bad traits. Grammatical errors can be easily fixed but it shows your lack of attention to detail and laziness. It is best to have a friend peer review your resume for any potential errors that you may have missed.
