Why You’re Not Getting Job Interviews: Lesson One

You feel confident about your chances of landing the job. You have the experience. You have the skills.

You email your resume and your cover letter, and then wait…

And wait…

And wait…

Is this a familiar scenario?

I saw resumes that seemed to have been written by third graders. I saw resumes with the wrong year on the cover letter. I saw resumes that were obviously mass-mailed without any specific targeting to the position.

My supervisor didn’t even show me the worst of the applications…

Here’s another story: During my internship at the Drug Policy Alliance, I learned that there were 500 applicants for one open position…

Make no mistake about it, today’s job market is quite competitive. Do you like your chances of landing a job?

You should…

75% of resumes I’ve seen have made me question the judgment of the individuals submitting them because of the downright awful errors they had in their resumes and/or cover letters.

So, if you get rid of these awful errors, you’re already in the top 25% of applicants.

If you hire me to alter your resume and cover letter, I can get rid of the awful errors that make a potential employer think WTF. On top of that, I’ll enhance your application so that you actually have a real chance of landing the position. If you’re interested in my services, just click here.
