Is there a job that you feel would be perfect for you, but you're unsure of how to get your foot in the door for an interview? You've submitted your resume to countless job openings, yet you haven't gotten a call back. Even the jobs that you feel overqualified for seem to be ignoring you. If you're tired of feeling as though your resume is being overlooked, follow these 3 tips

 

1. Use a unique search, like the JobSearch tool on HonorSociety.org. It aggregates from the major engines like Monster.com or Indeed.com, and you're able to do it all in once place. You save yourself a lot of time.

 

2. Follow the application instructions and include a cover letter. The easiest way to eliminate an applicant is to ignore an application that did not follow the company's set process.

 

3. Send a follow-up email to HR Manager or Hiring Manager. Make sure the hiring manager knows that you have a genuine interest in this job. About 2 days after you've submitted your application, send this email, and express your flexibility to discussing the opportunity further.
