Tips for Getting a Prospective Employer to Call You ASAP

When you get to the point at which you are looking for a job, you want a prospective employer to return your call as quickly as possible. Many employers have a structured system and way of doing things, but there are some tips and tricks you can use:

Give Your CV an Enticing Filename

Some companies have software programs that sift through the CVs, but a few still use the human method. You can possibly catch the interview checker’s eyes by giving your CV an extraordinary filename. How does hirmenow.docx sound?

Write Something Compelling When Asked

Some applications give you an opportunity to explain some of your assets or tell a story about your work history. Take this opportunity to think of the most amazing story you can tell and do it. The more fantastic your story is, the better your chances will be of receiving a call.

Accept Seasonal and Part-Time Work

You are now competing not just with thousands of people who have more skills than you do, but with thousands of college kids and teens who don’t mind part-time work. Therefore, you have to be willing to take what you can get and start from the bottom if you want to get back into the world of work. 

Say Yes to All Shifts

The same applies to shifts as it does to employment status. Unless you have a religious or personal obligation that forbids you from working all shifts, say yes. Yes is the answer if you want to move up in your candidacy.

Start Date Yourself ;as of Immediately

Make sure you say that you can start the new job the following business day when you get to that part of the application. Prospective employers love when people can adjust quickly.

Use these tips when you apply for your next job and see how they work for you. You may find that a prospective employer responds to your CV quicker than you thought it would.
