Why should an employer hire you
The main criterion for CV selection.
I'm sure you know that the specialists on work with personnel scan a resume for 20 — 30 seconds, and any study — about 2 minutes. Experienced HR –ry in large companies often spend even less time – about 10-15 seconds. This can be understood, since each vacancy can come dozens, hundreds, and sometimes thousands of resumes, it all depends on its quality, appeal, relevance. But at the same time, the company can simultaneously close several positions.
HR-ry always working in emergency mode, for them the main thing — quickly to fill the vacancy, so an individual approach to the candidate in this case does not apply. No one will search your talents and abilities, if you don't demonstrate them ourselves. Your resume can simply get lost and not pay attention.
Therefore,at first: - make a summary concise and specific, that is, indicate in it only that which is directly related to the vacancy for which you are applying; -secondly, correctly draw up a document, clearly and structurally submit information so that it can be easily read and understood; -third, show the concrete results of their work in the same place. It is most important. These results should explain to the employer why he should hire you.
So to stand out from the competition, you need to talk about their achievements. Not that you did, and that did. Processes do not matter. Most of the candidates enthusiastically describes its functionality still work
During the preparation of this material, I reviewed my resume archive. So, only 13 people out of a hundred at least indicated something in the column "my achievements" and, accordingly, only 13 had it at all!
In General, the specific results are not only of interest to the employer. Many years ago I worked as a law Professor in one of the Universities, and still remember the dialogues: – Elena, why you're giving me an f? After all, I taught? – Why not learn? But I really studied. That is, the person describes the process, whereas I needed a result.
And yet the processes do not suit wives. They are often interested in husbands: if you work, then why do not you earn, like going fishing - and where is the fish, etc. That is, very many categories of people want to see results, this must be remembered.
In your letters and comments, you ask me a question that can be indicated in the "achievements" column, especially if there were no real achievements.
My friends! If you were dismissed for incompatibility of the position, then - I agree, there is nothing to boast about. But if the former employer was satisfied with your work, then, there are some achievements.
As an illustration, will return to his teaching activities. Making a resume, you could just put under "experience": so-and-so on such and such a number worked as a teacher of commercial law in that University. Conducted lectures and seminars, took tests and exams. Retired at own will.
And you can add to this andachievements: - developed a full course of lectures for students of day and correspondence departments; - made methodical manuals; - developed case studies and exercises for seminars; - introduced business games in the process of education, which ensured a 100% attendance of students for classes; - I wrote 18 articles on my subject, which were published there and there and there; - Has prepared for the defense of the thesis for a candidate's degree; - held a number of open lectures in schools and lyceums with the aim of attracting graduates to our institute.
And now look at this resume eyes of the employer: to whom he will give preference to those who just have experience and functionality, or do I? If to this list to add a degree — employment in the University is guaranteed.
Thus, you can analyze any post, look at it not in terms of functionality, but in terms of achievements and results.
For some majors, for example, a key achievement was the execution of the work within the specified period. It is not always the purpose of the resume is the employment of the applicant in a specific organization. Often we are talking about a subscriber-based service outsourcing. And then there is the so-called "coming" accountant, IT — specialist, master for repair of equipment, etc. the Result, which is waiting for them, the head is high — quality and timely performance of its obligations under the contract. So, it is possible to write in the summary.
For sales consultants, managers, insurance agents, real estate professionals, advertising agents "achievement" is the sales development of client base. Moreover, these results should indicate in specific and clear digits. For lawyers-"law" — is the number of processes and percentage of won cases. For example, if over the years the lawyer has spent one hundred trials, of which he won eighty-nine, so we can consider it as our future employee!
Think, and what results in work have reached you? For what have you ever been rewarded, thanked, rewarded? What work processes can be developed and improved to get a more meaningful result, and then reflect it in your resume?
So, let's sum up the results and fix:
For your resume to be noticed, you need: - conciseness; - structured and clear information; - indication of concrete results and achievements.
