Some weekend reading:
So, you’ve sent a whole stream of resumes and cover letters over the last few weeks to positions you’re interested in and … nothing. It can be a very frustrating experience, but there’s lots of little things you can do to improve your chances of getting noticed in order to land more interviews.
Less is more
When you’re applying for positions online, don’t treat it like a numbers game. So many people take the approach that the more resumes they send out, the better their chance. Guess what? You just send out more resumes. Full stop.
You know all that copying and pasting it takes to send out multiple applications a day? Well, it’s really evident to the hiring manager reviewing it and those few people who’ve taken the time to tailor their application stand head and shoulders above the rest.
Dear Hiring Manager …
Another great way to stand out from the crowd is to research the hiring manager’s name (if it’s not already on the posting). The majority of people will simply put “To Whom It May Concern” or “Hello” or even “Dear Hiring Manager”. Certainly, it’s not actually incorrect to put any of these on a cover letter and sometimes it’s not always easy to ascertain who it should be sent to; however, are you more likely to read something addressed to you or “To Whom It May Concern”?
