CBS tips to make your application stand out from the crowd

HiredMYway.com/CBS Detroit Job Front can guarantee your resume will be viewed by employers, but it’s up to you to make sure they remember you and your qualifications. Keep these tips in mind when crafting your job search strategy.

Showcase quantitative information — Don’t just tell potential employers that you have experience — tell them the facts about what you accomplished. Be precise. Use numbers if they will help tell your story. Use phrases like “Raised more than $2,000, allowing my student group to…” or “Consistently exceeded quarterly sales goals by more than 20 percent…”

Vary your word choice — There are some words and phrases that are so common in job applications and interviews that they no longer command attention. Be creative — instead of relying on words and phrases like “managed,” “maintained” and “responsible for,” incorporate action words that show your drive.

Give concrete examples — You know that you’re hardworking and responsible, but without specifics you will sound like any other applicant. What were your responsibilities? Let potential employers know what you did and why it was important. Tell them about that weekly e-newsletter you wrote or the event you organized.

Create a HiredMYway.com video profile — A one page document can’t portray you as clearly as you speaking for yourself. Think of your video as the cover letter of the 21st century — an opportunity to briefly introduce yourself to potential employers. Make sure to include important information about your qualifications, but also take the chance to show what makes you a unique candidate.
