Advice from a BevFocre Career Concierge: Get Your Online Resumé Noticed There are a couple of things you can do to make sure that your resumé gets noticed when applying for jobs online: • Keep your resumé clean and simple and always save it as a PDF Be . sure to proof it! • Tailor your resumé to the position by using the keywords in the job description and highlighting your relevant experience. Taking the time to do this up front can really improve your chances of standing out above the competition. • When you're applying for a role, make sure you meet the minimum requirements for that role. Similarly, avoid applying for roles if you are over-qualified. • You should always customize your cover letter. Using a generic copypaste cover letter is very obvious to a hiring manager and may even give off the impression that you are lazy! Many smaller companies don't have huge HR departments, so if you can succinctly and articulately communicate that your skill set matches the minimum job requirements, you are putting yourself at an advantage. • These tips are just a few ways you can improve your chances of getting noticed during your job search. Just remember, it's about quality over quantity in the end. If you're willing to take the extra time to customize your application, it may make all the difference! 14  /  the tasting panel  /  december 2013 TP1213_001-33.indd 14 11/22/13 8:37 PM
