How to get an interview in this slow economy

I was recently looking for tips on resume writing, and useful strategies that I can use when I begin looking for a job in this recession. Getting dumped into the workforce with no experience and bad interviewing/resume writing skills is a fear of mine. Then I found this short video on 3 skills that your competition is probably not thinking of when writing their resumes, and I wanted to share with everyone so that they may be successful in being productive and landing that interview.  Although this video will go further in depth about the 3 points, I’ll briefly go over the importance of using keywords, using marketing and advertising strategies, and writing great copy.

Using keywords is an excellent way of getting noticed with employers seeking online resumes. When boldly labeling yourself with a single word, not only will that single you out from the rest of the other candidates, but it will make a big difference in the way the employer finds you through typing in single identifying words.

Stay up to date and be knowledgable on marketing and advertising strategies because you are ultimately selling an idea. That idea is to hire you! Get into the minds of those who sell for a living. It will help you to present yourself as exactly what the employer needs.

Write great copy to avoid trying too hard to effortlessly land that interview. It makes a big difference!

Check out this video to learn about getting noticed though your resume.
