Here’s What an Employer Really Seeking in Your Resume
Nowadays, it is commonly seen that most job seekers out there are writing their resumes having only one thing in their mind, and that is they. For this reason, many of times they toot their own horn very loud, loud enough to blow the interviewer get blown away by the sound. Of course, the approach of “I did this” and “I achieved that” is important to follow while writing your resume, as this approach will grab the attention of your potential employers. Almost all the hiring managers are keen to know what you have accomplished in your previous line of work, as well as of how you can prove to be beneficial for his or her company in the new position that you are seeking.
How to read between the lines?
However, the hiring managers are also looking for some spontaneous abilities which a potential employee can express on the job. They do not want the job seekers to spell out every single detail out to them. This is because, it gives an impression to your potential employers that you do not have the ability to anticipate and sense the problems and challenges, as well as the ability to meet these challenges instinctively.
For instance, you might be hoping to get hired as an assistant to the president of a financial corporation. For this job position, hiring managers are looking for someone who have computer skills, an ability to organize corporate date, a capability of keeping the filing system up-to-date, and someone who is ready to field phone calls and e-mails for the executive without being told to do so. You should be able to showcase all of that in your resume to get your hands on the job of your dreams.
Know what is beyond the job description:
The skills that you write should also be able to look good on the paper. However, if you want your resume to move on top of the pile, you should be including a few sentences more to describe the things that you can do other than what appears in the description of the job. For instance, you can state sentences such as those described below:
· Have the ability to chair a meeting including the corporate executives in case the president is unexpectedly detained or is called away on emergency business.
· Having the ability to trouble-shoot with customers on the phone which allows keeping the president free of time consuming entanglements.
· Have the ability to stimulate required communication between the employees present in other departments and then reporting the findings back to the president.
In most cases, the hiring managers are not looking for someone who only meets the requirements of the job position, as they are described in the job descriptions. On the contrary, the hiring managers are more interested in employee who is not only meeting the requirements of the job, but also goes beyond them by delivering practical help as well as heartfelt support which is required intuition and attentiveness.
