To make sure that you make the best of the available open positions, do not miss out on the latest job opportunities. Monster.com offers you the choice to create one or multiple free job alerts. A job alert should be an integral part of your job search strategy.
The advantages of setting-up a job alert are:
- you get to know as soon as a job is posted
- you can apply instantly and have the first mover advantage
- you do not miss out on important jobs
Since there are more seekers looking for jobs than the jobs in the market, the competition is fierce. So, how do you stand out from the crowd?
Consider the following:
- Take steps to beat the ATS
- Create a job-winning resume
- Make that first impression with a covering letter
Today, before an HR person looks at your resume and job application, chances are the Application Tracking System (ATS) is the first one to see it. So, how do you ensure ATS ranks your resume as the most matched candidate as per the job requirement? First, match the keywords in your resume and job application to the job description. For example, if a company is looking for a senior software engineer, the ATS will look for the term ‘Software Engineer’ and the technologies required. So, make sure you scan the job description and match the same with the relevant keywords in your resume. Another trick is to use both abbreviations and long forms. For example, if you are listing SEO and SEM as skillsets, it’s better to use – Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM). Keep it simple and use the commonly used headings and phrases to beat the ATS and getting shortlisted.
Monster.com strives to support all initiatives by government, businesses and communities alike to create better opportunities and remove barriers for seekers to find right jobs that match their skills and expertise.
All the best!
