If expert predictions stay on track, more Americans could be switching jobs in the coming months than at any other time in recent years. This so-called ‘Great Resignation’ – which has been heating up for months, post-pandemic, according to workforce analytics company, Visier – means the need to sharpen resume and networking skills and effectively nail an interview is about to become much more competitive.
Get your foot in the door and stay there
If you might be looking to make a career jump, you’ll want to start with the hard work of networking with target company employees and creating a polished resume that perfectly positions you for the job you want. Once you land a coveted face-to-face meeting, it’s time to shine, tell your story, and clearly and confidently convey why you’re the best fit for the position. To improve your chances of snagging a job offer in today’s aggressive market, you must effectively position yourself as the only wise choice for the position.
Sound like a lot of hoops to jump through to land your right-fit job? While there is a lot to research and prepare, it doesn’t have to feel like a continuous three-ring circus. No matter your target industry or role, it simply takes a personalized and thoughtful approach to elevate your preparedness, confidence and effectiveness to make a lasting impression during an interview.
At Crosworks, our interview coaching team works with individuals at all levels who might be interviewing but not getting offers, those who haven’t faced a job interview in years, or professionals who are pivoting to a new career or facing a one-in-a-lifetime interview. We start by getting to know you personally, as well as your target roles, and then helping you prepare for both the common and not-so-common questions you might face in an interview. Remember, sometimes the opportunities are right in front of you – at your current organization!
