Stand out From the Crowd: Follow Up Your CV Submission with a Phone Call
Author: Karen Ingram
Following on from my post: Stand out from the crowd: take a Psychometric Assessment, I have another top tip for you if you are seeking to STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD.
You need to be pro-active, creative, different and most of all persistent to shine bright to potential employers.
Always follow-up an application for a job by calling the contact name
Now this sounds obvious, however, Project Resource on average will receive 300+ CVs every month, so getting yourself noticed is paramount. Astoundingly from this 300, only 2-5 of these applicants call us (that's 1%). It's those pro-active people who normally get the interview, and in many cases get the job with us.
So, pick up the phone and give me a call (01628-477744), be pro-active, sending your CV alone is not enough.
What are you prepared to do to get the job?
