Everyone of us can use an update, a critique, a lift, a polish. And when you are seeking to grab the hiring managers attention, it is paramount that when crafting your job-winning resume, you can’t stop just at the resume. What are you gonna do after you are invited for the first interview?

1st Step is to proof your resume for inherit challenges. Do you have a gender-neutral name? Has your previous employer changed names? Did you have a long unemployment gap? Do you need your job search to be confidentiality? Did you leave the world of work due to personal reasons (caring for a sick family member)? Have you been underemployed and are seeking to align your talents with your potential?

Seek the help of a professional resume writer to help shape your job-winning resume.

2nd Step is to check with your references prior to submitting their names and be certain that they are aware of your professional value.

Email your references a copy of your resume and also send a copy by snail mail.

3rd Step is to check your online presence by googling yourself and see what comes up.

Landing an interview is only the first step. Understanding how to move to the next step is a big part of the resume process. Be aware of how you are viewed on social media. Make sure that your LinkedIn profile showcases your personality, passion, and also the skills that you care most about.

4th Step is to mind your grooming. Hair, nails, facial hair, posture, diction, little points (earrings, nose rings, belts, buckles, shoes, socks, stockings, skirt length, tightness of pants, panty lines, various color hair (unless you will be working in a creative field), elbows, knuckles, open toe shoes).

Double check your grooming. It matters.

5th Step is to update your outfit and take new pictures to make sure that you look like a WINNER! Everyone wants to be on a winning team. Do you look the part?

Consider 3 Ways to Improve Your Presence on Social Media

Forbes Coaches Council Member

#1 – See an image consultant and get some ideas on how to maximize your look
#2 – Hire a shopper to revamp your wardrobe to showcase your professional self in a manner that says, “Yes I am competent and have much to offer!”
#3 – Combine the 2 and wear your new outfits and take some pictures and highlight on your social media sites.

Image matters.
Looking as if you are healthy and competent from your head to your shoes matter.
Having a fresh, up to date hair style matters.
Projecting a groomed, well shaven, arched eyebrow, neat nails and non-offensive colors matter.

There are many gurus who love imaging workers. There are many photographers who can take headshots and location shots that are professionally done to showcase you best attributes.

It is well worth the efforts.
Sometimes you can’t get pass the interview because you do not look the part. Sometimes your etiquette is not up to par so you appear not to be an ideal cultural fit for the company.

Show us your best professional self. We’d love to see how your project a wonderful image on the job.
