Job seekers often complete with dozens, if not hundreds of other applicants for one job. Even if you have the right skills and qualifications, how do you motivate an employer to interview you over other candidates?
The trick is to make sure you are the strongest candidate for that job, and to stand out among other qualified job seekers. You need to be marketable.
Three good ways to increase your marketability, and increase your chances of getting an interview are to:
- Build your skills
- Develop your strengths
- Promote yourself
Having the right skills and presenting yourself to employers isn’t always simple. The more you know about what employers are looking for, the better your chances of getting hired.
