    Young and Inexperienced? Stress Less About Your Career Potential

Young and Inexperienced? Stress Less About Your Career Potential

For those with a fresh degree, it is often intimidating to find your way out of the starting gate. You have the heart and the head knowledge, along with a splash of experience as an undergrad and intern. But, you find yourself wondering if your limited amount of experience is enough to land the job of your dreams. Is experience overrated or essential when it comes to your job search?

 

This is an important question to consider, and, as with anything, the answer will vary from company to company. There are some hiring managers that will not consider a candidate who does not have “X” amount of years of experience. However, there are many other companies that may hire someone who is lacking in experience yet possesses strong potential. These companies have found that pure will and determination will often outweigh experience when it comes to job performance.

 

So, if this finds you as a young professional who is hungry for a great job but stressed because you are under qualified, then don’t lose heart. The awesome job that you’ve got your eye on could be your “getting started” opportunity. Everyone deserves that chance to get your feet wet, to get your foot in the door of the company that you think is way out of your reach. Most all ambitious job candidates who are looking to land a new or higher level position will have to stretch themselves at some point, to overcome a job qualification that is lacking.

 

Platinum Resumes is here to help any such candidate to stretch themselves in such a way. Our experience has shown us, time and time again, that a young professional can take hold of personal confidence and a stellar resume to overcome a lack of experience. Our services allow a job seeker to lay all of their skills and professional experiences and highlights out on the table in order to pull all of that together and create a killer resume. You can leave your stress behind you and rest in the satisfaction of knowing that you are putting your career potential in good hands. Give us a call today at 816.986.0909, and we’d love to help connect you with a brighter future!

How Aggressive is Your Job Search?

“Be aggressive. Be, be aggressive.” The words that bring us back. Back to the voices of cheering on the high school team on a Friday night. The call to fight harder and stronger against the opponent.

 

Let’s allow that chant to ring in our ears again today. Except this time, the opponent is not another team but the job market, and we are being called to fight harder and stronger in the face of the present opposition.

 

Due to election season and all of the corresponding events and stories that have slammed our country and job market this year, many companies have been holding off on hiring and spending in this final quarter. The opportunities for being hired in your field are not as plentiful as they once were, and you have to be much more aggressive in your pursuit.

 

So how should you go about getting your aggressive act together? A solid resume is the best place to start. There is no time to mess around with anything less than the best when it comes to submitting your work to a hiring manager. In order to rest assured that your resume will shine as a top contender rather than sink to the bottom, you need to make sure that you are representing yourself professionally and thoroughly.

 

Your resume should tell the hiring manger what type of an employee you have been and the promise that you hold today. You should highlight your greatest accomplishments while walking the fine line of not over or under representing yourself. This can sometimes be a difficult obstacle for those that aren’t comfortable writing resumes, and hiring a professional to help with this task is sometimes your best option.

 

Give Platinum Resumes a call today at 816.896.0909 and allow us to share more with you about all of the services that we have to offer those seeking to advance their careers. Whether it’s a resume you’re needing, a cover letter, or help preparing for an interview, our team of professionals can offer expert advice on the matter. Choose today to get serious about being more aggressive in your job search!

Current Blog Series: Making the Most of Your Job Search!

Post #4 – Complete the CIRCLE and Expect Serious Career Results

 

As we conclude our blog series today, we want to take a moment to offer one more bit of advice on how to make the most of your time spent on the hunt for a job. Whether you’ve been at it for months and months or have only just begun, there is no reason to further prolong your job search. Make today the day that you’re going to get your ducks in a row and get serious about chasing your career dream!

 

Regardless of what type of job you are seeking or where you plan to fall on the salary scale, the job search basics still apply. There are a few key items that should be highest on your checklist, the main ingredients for stirring up the greatest chance at success for your career advancement.

 

While some of the items that make up this acronym are obvious and may already be in play for you, not everyone understands the significance of each piece of this CIRCLE. So, take a minute to check out why adhering to this CIRCLE of career advice will help you to boldly stand out among your peers…

 

C… Confidence. Until you fully believe in yourself and in the words that your experience speaks about your potential as a powerhouse of a job candidate, then you’re not fully ready to chase after the big job you want. You have to search yourself and find confidence in who you are and what you can and will bring to the table.

 

I… Interview prep. This is essential and often overlooked. The older job seekers think they’ve weathered enough interviews before and need no further instruction, while the younger job seekers are fresh off of the latest textbooks regarding interviewing skills. Regardless of where you fall in the mix, there is no one who couldn’t benefit from a little time spent preparing for the big interview. Each new company you explore has a different method of operations, which should be understood so that the right questions can be asked.

 

R… Resume. This, of course, is of utmost importance. Your resume is often the first thing that connects you to the hiring manager. In just a matter of seconds, you will be either be moved to the top of the consideration list or disregarded altogether, so having a top-notch resume is a vital part of your job search.

 

C… Cover letter. Drafting a proper cover letter is something to which most people just devote a few second’s thought. This letter is not the equivalent of your resume but does, in fact, carry great clout when it comes to separating you out from the common job candidate. This letter is an intro as to who you are and what you might bring into this new position, so it needs to be detailed and concise.

 

L… LinkedIn profile. In a world where we are weighed and judged online before we ever get the chance to represent ourselves face-to-face, it’s important to understand the powerful presence of a solid LinkedIn profile. Your profile must be consistently maintained in a thorough and professional manner, leaving no holes for potential communication and no question as to what type of reputation you have in your specific career field.

 

E… Expert advice. You can throw these other pieces together and make the most of your job search experience, but adding the advice of qualified experts into the mix will greatly increase your chances of landing that interview you’ve only dreamt of until now. Seeking the help of a professional in the career field is not a sign of weakness but of wisdom, the realization that you want to reach higher than you can climb on your own and will gratefully welcome some help along the journey.
