Beyond Graduation Daily Tip – February 11, 2009

Make Sure to Stand Out!

It can become very easy during the job hunt to begin blanketing potential employers with generic cover letters and resumes.  I’ve heard stories of young adults applying to 700+ jobs in a three month period of time and it is easy to see why, for efficiency’s sake, send out generic documents.  As the process of searching for a job becomes more and more frustrating, it is important to remain determined and different.  Modify your cover letters and resumes depending on the market or the employer.  Often times this will give your application a personal feel that many of the other “generic” applications lack.  There is no question that it will take a little bit more time each day, but you’re not working anyway…be different.  There are jobs available, but it is going to take creativity and determination to stand out amongst the crowd.
