Job Search Tip:
How relevant to your career is your resume (or CV) really? Does it seem appropriate for the exact job opening that you are interested in? This is a very important question to ask yourself when applying for a job, because resumes that are considred even slightly irrelevant to the position you are seeking will get screened out instantly, depriving you of a chance to land an interview for your dream job. Since so many jobs that appear similar or have similar job titles actually have different requirements for experience and education, you need to consider the relevancy of your resume every time you are about to hit the send button on a job application. Our headhunters know this as well, and when you send your resume to us, they will sometimes create an ad-hoc alternate version of your resume or ask you to provide one whenever a hot job opportunity appears which might be a good fit for you. Although our team can adjust in situations like this, it is always better for you to have a few alternative versions of your resume ready to go, so when we contact you about a job opportunity, you will be able to respond quickly so that you do not miss out on it. Having several ready-made options at your disposal is always a good strategy when hunting for a new job!
