Nowadays, your resume is the most important document you have to get yourself an interview.
Poorly chosen words and clichéd phrases can destroy the interest of the reader while specific words when chosen correctly can have the opposite effect of motivating and inspiring the reader.
So you better choose wisely the words you are going to use !
Top 100 Power Resume Words
1. Get Involved
One of the best ways you can set yourself apart from all of the other new graduates is to be involved in extra-curricular activities. It can be something as simple as a recreational sports league, or something more complex and time consuming like student government. If you are really ambitious, try to get involved in a diverse range of activities and clubs. This will show your range and depth to any recruiter you come across.
At this point, your network will likely consist of family, friends, professors, and potentially some summer job contacts. However, it is never too early to start networking. Colleges and Universities are great places to meet all sorts of people. Most important of all, you will graduate and become part of an extensive alumni network which you should take advantage of at every opportunity. Never stop networking. It’s the best way to advance your career.
3. Visit Your Career Center
The staff at your Career Center will be a great source of information in your job search. They will have contacts with companies that conduct on-campus recruiting and may even hold “meet-and-greets” with recruiters. In addition, they will likely run workshops and provide written materials for helping you on your way.
When you graduate, you will be applying for jobs and competing against hundreds of other new graduates with the same level of experience as you. If you want to be able to compete on a level above just school and marks, try to build your resume. Summer jobs, part-time jobs and volunteer work are a great way to gain experience before graduation. Not only that, but it shows a recruiter that you are both motivated and can handle the increased pressures of both work and academic life.
5. Clean Up Your Online Image
In this digital age, anything that you post online (or is posted about you) can potentially be seen by recruiters. While you are still in school, search through Google and your social networking sites to ensure any potentially embarrassing pictures or information are not found by an HR manager.
6. Have Fun
Don’t forget, you are only in college for a few years. A “Work Hard, Play Hard” philosophy is the best way to ensure you don’t regret anything in the future.
Is it more tricky to be grilled by video?
The job interview is an ordeal that most people face at some stage in our career.
But as video starts to take the place of the face-to-face interview, is it easier or harder now to land your dream job or to achieve an unexpected scholarship?
So, today, as the scenery changes ,the trick to making a good impression at interview may be less about what you know and more about how you come across on camera.
Looking in the wrong place is just one of the common pitfalls of video interviews. Of course It’s tempting to watch your beautiful self in that little box to make sure your hair isn’t in your face or that you’re not making weird facial expressions,but the truth is that it is very distracting to the other party. It’s OK on the other hand to watch the speaker on the screen, but the trick is to respond by looking into the camera to create the illusion of direct eye-contact.
First impressions are still crucial. The skype interview is preferred because the employes can definitely gain a better first impression of candidates using a combination of video and CV rather than their CV only. They can’t see the handshake or how you walk into the room but still, you have to look calm and keep your cool if the employer chooses not to operate his own camera!
However, sometimes you can’t beat face-to-face contact.
Τherefore, we should not to rest on the solution of an interview from skype because the big opportunities will continue to require a “normal’ face-to-face interview.
Don’t underestimate the importance of a first impression.You want to start off on the right foot so your colleagues will like and respect you.
So, what shouldn’t you do at work?
1. Don’t emulate your worst-dressed colleague.
2. Don’t give off a “Don’t talk to me” vibe.
3. Don’t be a slob.
4. Don’t be a bully.
5. Don’t overshare.
6. Don’t talk about how busy or tired you are.
7. Do not spend your day on personal calls, texting or posting to social media.
8. Don’t be the first one to leave.
