Tips for Getting them to Hire You

By: Mike Freemen

When it comes to getting your favorite company to hire you, there are a number of things you can do to tip the odds in your favor. If you want the best company in town to hire you, you will have to make sure you are the best candidate for the job opening they have, and you will have to present a well polished and professional picture to the hiring manager.

The first step to getting that great company to hire you is to create an eye catching resume. The resume is your foot in the door to the person who does the hiring for the company, and the resume is your face to the company. It is important that the resume you create be honest, and that it reflect the talents that would make anyone want to hire you.

The job of the resume, of course, is to get you the interview with the company you want to hire you. After you have landed that coveted interview it is up to you to put your best foot forward and convince that company to hire you. When preparing for the interview, it is important to practice and to anticipate the kinds of questions you may get at the interview.

Another great tactic for getting that great company to hire you is to know something about the company before you sit down for the interview. A surprising number of job candidates do not take the time to even learn what the company does before the interview. If you expect the company to hire you, it is only fair for you to at least know what the company does and how it makes its money. Some up front research on the company with whom you are seeking employment will go a long way toward convincing that company that they should hire you.

There are of course many places to get a job, and many ways to make yourself stand out from all those other job candidates. Networking has long been known as the number one way people find new jobs, and networking with other professionals is one of the most proven ways of landing that dream job. Even if you are already gainfully employed, it is important to keep up with your network of business and personal contacts. After all, you never know when a better, or higher paying, opportunity will come along, and the people in your social and professional circle may well help you find that great new job.
