Have you been applying for jobs in New York but have not heard back from any of them? How many jobs have you applied for recently and how many have emailed or called you back? Applying for jobs in New York is a job in itself and it can get exhausting at times. And I know how discouraging it can be, to apply for countless jobs and not hear back from any of them!

Here is the scenario: You find a job posting online, you read it and find out you would be a perfect fit for that job, you apply and wait anxiously for a response. Days have passed, weeks or even months and you never heard back from that job, as a matter of fact you haven’t heard back from any of the jobs you have applied for… This really feels discouraging. The New York job market is tough and very competitive, but if after applying for over 10 jobs you still haven’t heard back from at least one, then the problem may actually be with your resume!

It is important to have a well written, concise and straight to the point, resume. But it is also important, especially for those applying to jobs online, to have a computer optimized resume. Most companies in New York nowadays use a software scanning system, which scores your resume based on certain key words, the higher the score the higher your chances are of receiving a call back. The key words vary from job to job and can be found on the job posting itself. You need to develop a core competency or key skills section, to computer optimize your resume, which will help to improve your rankings.

If your resume has a strong professional profile section and a key skills section that has all the key words that New York employers are looking for, then you are halfway there. Make sure your resume is tailored to the jobs you wish to apply for, that it is computer optimized for those jobs and don’t forget to include accomplishments on your profile section. You need to market yourself on your resume and show them why you would be the best fit candidate for that position! Good luck to all on your job search!

Screaming Resume Service

 

In an economy that grows without helping the middle and lower classes to grow, many people in New York have to juggle multiple jobs. There are also many people who are juggling multiple part time jobs because they cannot get one good paying full time job.

So for those of you who either are already juggling multiple jobs and those who are considering doing so, how do you succeed now? How do you balance your work life with your home life with multiple jobs? How do you stay on track with your long term goals while holding these various jobs?

  • What’s Your Motivation?
  • How Do You Use Technology?
  • Spend Time with the Family
  • Don’t Lose Sight of Your Dreams
  • Stay Healthy

What is your motivation? Are you working multiple jobs simply because you have to or is this means to an end? Do you have a goal that leads you to work multiple jobs until you find a way to reach that goal? Is there a position in your industry that you are shooting for but which is not available in our current economy?  Perhaps you want to work from home and juggling multiple jobs for a while is the way to get there. Be focused on where you are going. Don’t work for the paycheck alone. Even if that paycheck is why you took the second job, you will need more than that in order to stay motivated.

How do you make use of technology to assist you while you juggle multiple jobs? The more you can work from home on any of your jobs the better. It will increase the time spent with family even if you are just physically present and still working. Just be sure you keep all your jobs separate and if one company provides you with technology, like a tablet, laptop, smart phone, do not use that technology to do work for another company. It is unprofessional and unethical to do so.

You need to spend time with your family. Don’t let juggling multiple jobs take up your life or you will have no life. You need time away from all your jobs to refresh yourself and to sustain your family life. Handling multiple jobs is a very stressful endeavor so make sure you find a way to make time to refresh yourself and cut down on the stress. Being with people you love who love you is one of the very best ways to cut down on stress.

Don’t lose sight of your dreams. Stay motivated and focused on what you want down the road. If you took several jobs just to survive than keep in touch with your dreams by keeping in touch with the industry that you love while you are working other jobs. Stay current with what is going on in that industry and what the trends are.

Stay healthy. Take care of yourself. It is so easy to lose sight of what you need when you are under a lot of stress. Eat right. Sleep enough. Take time for the things you love to do. Then you will be able to deal with multiple jobs and keep your eyes on the prize.

posted by | on Article, Blog | Comments Off on Why Insurance is so Secure

The prognosticators are telling us that one of the most secure jobs in New York today and into the future, are in the insurance industry. Insurance? You mean those guys who used to go door to door like encyclopedia or vacuum salesmen? You mean those guys have the securest jobs of the future? It seems incredulous – but it is true.

The problem is we tend to think of the insurance industry in New York as insurance agents and only agents. However, there is a lot more to insurance these days than just agents and agencies. There are claims adjusters, underwriters, actuaries, software programmers and developers.

There is also a major shortage of talent in the industry and a wide open market for those who want to make insurance their career. It is projected that nearly one fourth of all those who currently work in insurance will be retired by 2018.

By 2022, the industry will need 7000 actuaries, 72,000 claims adjusters, 8,500 software programmers, developers, and underwriters according to information compiled by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. The industry has not exactly done a bang up job when it comes to selling itself.

Due to this, young people in their late 20’s are quickly reaching management levels. A Risk Manager for example has a challenging job with lots of responsibilities. They are responsible for making sure insured facilities are secure and safe, coverage is adequate, and can mitigate disasters.

Risk Managers also contribute to the companies’ bottom line. They are involved heavily in any new company acquisitions, helping to make sure that the buildings –old and new – are adequate and correctly insured. This brings a lot of challenges and responsibility that most do not expect to find in the “mundane” insurance field.

Realizing the growth in this field over the past few years has led many colleges and universities to offer majors in insurance programs, many of which are quite extensive. In Indiana alone, there are a couple of extremely well regarded programs in well renowned schools including Indiana State University. In addition, Butler University has 50 different insurance majors in their program. Graduates of these programs have no problems finding jobs, in fact Butler reports that their graduates typically find jobs with starting pay in the range of $50,000 and up right out of under graduate school, although many also perform internships after under graduate training.

There are only about 60 colleges and universities in the United States that offer majors in insurance fields. Demand in this industry is so high and will be for many years that it is an open field for universities and colleges to enter into as well. In addition, some colleges and universities are starting actual insurance companies run by students. These insurance companies might insure the vehicles of the school, the life of a living mascot, even liability insurance for school events might be covered.

These school based insurance programs help students get hands on experience in writing policies, performing underwriting duties and selling policies, as well as financing companies. More programs like this are needed today. So if you’re in New York and want a great challenge, in a fast growing career with the chance for advancement and a good salary, try the insurance industry.

Resume Formatting

(By ResumeNewYork.com – Staff Writer)

Formatting Your Online Resume

If you are preparing a resume these days, you will be formatting it to be posted online. This will be true whether you are posting generically on job boards, or responding online to a specific job posting. Given this it is important to know what is acceptable and what is not acceptable in formatting for an online resume.

Most of us have become very familiar with formatting paper resumes. We know what the style should be, what font is acceptable for the most part, the kind of paper to put it on and what the length should be. On the other hand a lot of current New York job seekers might not have any idea how to format a resume for online posting.

Readability

The major issue of an online resume is readability. If I as a hiring manager cannot follow the formatting of your resume in such a way as to not find it readable, then you have a problem. The important point of readability is that your resume must look good on a tablet, a phone, a laptop, a desktop or on paper.

What makes a resume readable and good looking regardless of the instrument it is read from? For one thing you want it to be clean – not too crowed and not too much white space and as professional as possible.

The Challenges

There are several major challenges every candidate faces when posting their resumes online and sending them by email or even paper directly to the company.

Applicant Tracking Systems

The biggest and newest of these is the applicant tracking system. These software programs take your resume and search it for keywords that describe what is needed for the job. These programs also take your resume and change it into some basic formats as opposed to the professional look you think you gave it. These systems often leave your resume looking like scrambled eggs and not at all readable if you have not formatted it properly to start with.

Given this you need to format your resume to accommodate these applicant tracking systems. Often when you upload your resume directly to the company, it is going into an applicant tracking system. When software reads your resume before any human being reads it, then you have to write it to satisfy the software.

Formatting for Applicant Tracking Systems

If you write your resume in a word processing program you are going to have to change it for the applicant tracking systems and in order to cut and paste it into an online application from a company. The way to fix this if you start with a word processor is to cut and paste your Word resume into a plain text editor like Notepad or Text Edit.

This will show you how your word processed document is going to translate into the applicant tracking system or an online company application. You will be surprised by what you see. There will be spacing issues and characters that you did not enter. These programs use HTML or ASCII and only recognize these certain characters. It is also important to use character returns to separate sections of information as this will add to the resume’s readability in these formats.

Fonts – Use Calibri, Times New Roman, Arial or another basic font so that you get clean formatting and improved readability. The font size should be 10-12 except for your name which might be a 14. DO NOT CHANGE FONTS THROUGHOUT THE RESUME.

The only exception to this is if you are applying for a specifically design creative job and then you want your resume to show some of that skill while still maintain readability. You can do this with fonts.

Margins and Spacing – it is very important to get your margins and spacing correct. Remember when you use a program like Word this is mostly built in. With the applicant tracking programs it is not. You want enough white space on every page to make it readable and to make it attractive at first glance.

Your margins should be at least 1” all around. Never make the margins less than ½”. You want to avoid crowding the page with text. It is ok to center headings but the majority of text should be left aligned. This will keep your resume laid out well and looking professional as well as readable.

Information

Your contact information is usually left aligned as well and should include an address, email address and mobile phone number. Make sure you include a ‘resume headline’ or a short statement telling the hiring manager what you can do for them. Make sure this section is short. Next you want a branding statement that expresses what differentiates you from other candidates. Make this short, concise and powerful.

Length of Resume

This is a critical factor, especially when dealing with computer generated software programs reading your resume. The more concise the better as long as you still get all the information in that is needed. This will depend upon your work history. There are some guidelines for this but they are only guidelines. Just remember you want readability and professionalism in every format.

  • Entry level experience: One page
  • Five – ten years of experience: Maximum of two pages.
  • Senior or Executive level: As many pages as needed but I recommend never going past three if possible. Two is still best if you can cover all your experience. However do not skimp on your experience in order to get it into two pages.

Conclusion

Once you have your resume in this format you can easily make it into a Word document. You will use the formatted resume more than the word processed one over the long haul so make sure you always have a ‘plain text version’ from a text editor available.

If you do this, you will not have to recreate it every time you want to post it online or respond to a specific online job posting. So save a Word copy and a plain text copy every time you update it.

(ResumeNewYork.com – Staff Writer)

Working with Professional Recruiters

So far we have concentrated our efforts on how to write a resume that would capture the attention of the hiring manager and get you an interview.  We looked at how to write your resume, what to put in it and what to leave out. We have looked at how resumes are downloaded in applicant tracking system and what your format should be. Now let’s look at the role of professional recruiter in this overall system and why it might be good for you to work with one.

What is a Professional Recruiter?

A professional recruiter is someone who works for the company, finds candidates for their clients open positions, helps to facilitate interviews, job offers and candidate and family relocations. The fees for this recruiter’s work are not paid by you the candidate but rather by the company doing the hiring. There is no need to pay a fee when there are so many companies using recruiters these days.

What can a Professional Recruiter do for you?

The professional recruiter can potentially help you find a new job. However the recruiter does not work for you. The recruiter works for the company that has the job opening and it is important for you to keep that in mind when working with them. Do not expect the recruiter to be at your beck and call. They do not work for you.

However, even though they do not work for you they can help you get the job that is the best match for your skills, goals and interests. At the same time their top priority is to find the best possible candidates for the job opening their clients have. The recruiter will have you in mind but he will be looking to fill the needs of his client – the company. If you fit those needs, the recruiter is going to be the first one to call you and get you an interview.

Yes the recruiter can get you an interview. That is one of the most important things they can do for you. They are aware of job opportunities among their clients that are never advertised. These positions are filled in-house, by an in-house recruiter, through networking and professional recruiters.

The professional recruiter also has an extensive network of industry and company executives and human resource personnel. They understand the industries they work in and the market they work within. They have to know what is going on in the industry – what the trends are, what the salary levels are, who is downsizing and who is upsizing.

Professional recruiters are there to help you as you grow through your career. You might change jobs several times but if you are lucky you will never change your recruiter. The better they know you, the more they can do for you.

The Process of Working with a Recruiter

There is a very specific process that a professional recruiter follows when working any job order or marketing any client. If they like your skills, your personality and career track, they might choose to market you. This means they will call their clients that don’t have openings that they know about and see if you are someone they would like to talk to.

Next they will take a look at the resume you have prepared but the really good recruiters will insist on re-writing it themselves. They will write it to match your skills to the needs of the specific job they want you to interview for. They also know the latest trends in resumes and will not make any or the mistakes that candidates sometimes make on their own.

In addition they will help you to prepare for that interview. They will tell you what they know about the client and what the client is looking for. They will counsel you on how to make yourself more appealing to the client than the others they are interviewing. They will tell you what not to say more than what to say.

Once the interview is over, if the employer wants to hire you, the recruiter will negotiate the offer for you. Most recruiters earn a percentage of your starting salary so it is in their best interest to get you the best possible offer. Finally if you have to relocate for the job, the recruiter might try to find a job for your spouse if needed, schools for your children and put you in touch with the best realtors in your new area.

 Conclusion

I hope this article has given you an overview of what it is like to work with a professional recruiter and how they can and can’t help you find a new job. Remember they will help you, but they do not work for you. They work for the employer and their knowledge of the markets and industries that are hot, will work to your advantage.

Interview Skills

(By ResumeNewYork.com – Staff Writer)

Basic Interviewing Skills

Now that you are up to date on your resume skills and have posted it online and sent it to many hiring managers, you have earned yourself an interview. Now what? There are definitely do’s and don’ts of interviewing. You have gotten this far, now you need to take the next step and nail down the job through the interview.

You will be nervous and anxious before and perhaps during the interview, but do not let it show. You need to present a calm and confident demeanor to the interviewer whether it is a Human Resources personnel or the hiring manager. The more you prepare in advance the calmer and confident you will actually be.

Interview Skills and Preparation

Communication Skills and Listening Skills

How well you communicate is a major key to how successful your interview is. It is important that you know what you want in a job and why you want it. This is your chance to sell yourself to the interviewer.

  • Listen – most of us think we know how to listen but we really don’t. You have to train yourself to be a good listener. A good listener is not thinking about what they are going to say while you are talking. No instead they are really listening to you.
  • Talk when asked questions and don’t go on and on about things. Be concise and precise. Do not ramble. In order to accomplish this you will need to prepare in advance.
  • Stick to business as much as possible. If the interviewer asks about a personal item you can discuss it. Otherwise avoid talking about hobbies and personal activities.
  • Be professional in how you speak- the same rules that applied to the interview apply to the interview. Don’t use slang or make any references to race, religion, etc.­­­­­­
  • Answer the questions and don’t go off on tangents.

Preparation

The key to how successful your interview is lies with your preparation. The better prepared you are the more relaxed you will be and you will be able to make a great impression on the hiring manager.

  • The first step in preparation is to know why you want the job and how it fits into your career goals. Make sure you have goals to share because you will be asked about them.
  • Research the company and know as much as possible about it before your go to the interview. What do they do? What is their financial status? What is the mission and core values of the company and how do they fit with yours?
  • If you can get it in advance, go over the job description in detail. Be able to answer and ask questions about it. Know how your experience and skills fit into the job description.
  • Prepare to be asked about your career goals, your interests, why you left a certain job etc.
  • Dress seriously. I cannot tell you how many people came to interview with me in jeans, shorts, or casual clothes of any kind. I never hired any of them.

Interviewing

You have heard it all your life. “You only get one chance to make a first impression.”  This is so true and the first impression you make in a job interview is critical. You have about 3-5 minutes to make that impression. Hiring managers usually make up their minds by instinct as much as substance.

  • Dressing well is part of your preparation but it is also the very first part of your first impression.
  • Eye contact is very important not just as a first impression, but throughout the entire interview.
  • A firm handshake is something we hiring managers laugh about, but you can bet we take it seriously. Practice it if you have to.
  • Address your interviewer formally unless they indicate you should use their first name. Be careful with women however and do not assume they are married or not. Ask how they would like to be addressed.
  • Remain standing until either your interviewer sits or they invite you to do so.
  • Be serious. Don’t be flip. Answer honestly but try to keep things positive.
  • Be prepared to ask questions about the job, the company, chances for advancement etc. When the interviewer reviews the job or job description with you, ask questions then.
  • Watch your language throughout the interview. No slang. No neighborhood vernacular. Try to get rid of the unnecessary “you know”, “no problem”, ‘uhm” or other phrase like these. Make every word count.
  • Don’t get distracted and look around. Stay focused.

Follow-up

Send a thank you after the interview, mentioning specifics from the interview and reinforcing your qualifications and desire for the job. You can send this by email or regular mail, but make sure you do it.

Multiple Resumes

(ResumeNewYork.com – Staff Writer)

How Many Resumes Does One Person Need?

So how many resumes does any one person need? It seems these days that you need a multitude of resumes in order to land the ideal job. Why will you need multiple resumes? In today’s job market you need every advantage you can get and that includes personalizing your resume to fit as many opportunities as possible.

Does this mean that you write a new resume every time you apply for a job? Does one size fit all or do you really need several formats? I would maintain that you do need at least a few basic types but you do not have to reinvent the wheel every time you want to apply for a job.

Types of Resumes You Need

  • General resume in functional format as a template. This is your basic resume that you will want to save as the template for all others. It is also the copy that you will provide to hiring managers in paper form. It is a functional style resume, not a chronological one. In fact you probably never need a chronological resume.

 

This resume can be tailored to showcase your skills and achievements in respect to the job you are applying for. This is the resume I have discussed in most other articles. This is the resume you use to showcase your sales skills when applying for a sales job. You will tweak this resume to showcase your managerial skills when applying for a manager job.

 

This is also the resume you will use when you are applying for jobs in more than one area or field of expertise. If you are an engineer and want to apply for design jobs you will want your resume to focus on those skills and that expertise. If you also have a history of leading design projects and are certified in project management, you might want to pursue project management jobs. You will need separate functional resumes to showcase each of those skills and achievements.

 

So your best bet in this respect is a generic functional resume that you can tailor to the specific openings you are interested in. Keep this resume on file as a template. This is needed even though you want to show your skills as a multi-tasker as well.

 

  • Resume formatted for computerized applicant screening programs and formatted for online posting in real text style. This resume could have the same information as the generic one mentioned above but instead of being written and formatted in a word processing program, it is formatted in a real text editor such as Notepad.

This resume is essential in that every time you want to post a resume online, upload one to a company site or email it to an employer you will want it to be done with a real text editor.

If you are not familiar with this type of formatting write your resume in Word as usual. Now bring up your real text editor and paste your resume in. Print out a copy of each and compare. You will be surprised by all the differences between the two. You need to save a copy of each type.

The other thing you need to be aware of when writing the real text edition of your resume for applicant tracking systems is that these systems are designed to rate your resume based on keywords. The keywords will be those associated with the job opening. You want to be sure those words are in your resume.

  • Resume written for professional recruiters. Is the resume you provide to a professional recruiter really different from any of these which we have already discussed? Many if not most professional recruiters are going to re-write your resume before presenting it to their client. This is so that your resume fits the job opening as closely as possible. But what about the resume you give the recruiter?

 

This resume should include all of your experience and all of your accomplishments from high school to the present. Your recruiter can then choose the items they want to put in the resume they write for their clients. Remember we are only talking about professional recruiters here not in-house recruiters. Treat the in-house recruiter just as you would the hiring manager.

Conclusion

In conclusion you need more resumes if you have more extensive goals that you wish to achieve in your career. If you are seeking jobs in various industries or roles you need more than one resume. You need separate resumes in word processing and in real text. Also have a more complete resume for working with professional recruiters. You might want to label this one for the recruiter.

Finally keep a record of the different styles of resume that you have and who your sent it to and when. In this way you can track which resumes are bringing you interviews and which ones are not. Update your tracking every time you update your resume with a different version number. This will give you the best possible analysis on the success of your resumes.

These days when it comes to resumes, it is like that Lay’s Potato Chip commercial and “nobody has just one.”
