Strategies For Job Applications
Whenever you apply for employment to an organization, it is imperative that your
application materials create a comprehensive understanding of you as a candidate.
Each supporting document, from resumes to formatted applications from the
company, should build your image without being repetitive. For instance, a cover
letter is not an explanation of the resume but a space to explain your knowledge of
the company and industry while a formatted application is not just the resume
repeated but should provide detailed demographic information about you for HR
Across all documents, incorporate key themes and strengths so that you are clearly
recognizable as a candidate. Are you branding yourself as a marketer with
experience in start-ups and fine-tech? Or an engineer with a specialty in machine
learning? It should be obvious across all documents. It is also helpful to use the
same heading on all documents to keep uniformity as well as promote name
recognition. Each document in your application needs to be crafted in striking yet
professional language and each should be clearly formatted. To avoid an immediate
rejection, evaluate and examine each job application thoroughly before sending it.
To determine what to send in an application packet, read the job posting carefully

to be sent together and consider how you are sending your documents. If it is an
email, title your attachments uniformly with your name and an identification of the
document (eg: L_Snyder_Resume and L_Snyder_ID). If it is an online application,
double-check that the format of your documents transferred into the system
correctly. These considerations will show a company that you are in-tune with their
processes and make it easier for them to access and evaluate your application.
Increasingly, job applications are online and often candidates wonder where their
carefully created application has gone! When you apply, your application lands in
an online database that employers access to explore and compare applications. To
organize the masses of applications, employers often sort the applications by
keywords and industry language. A generic job application will be ignored if it
does not contain the right language but will be boosted if it does. This is where
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) becomes crucial to application creation. It can
be extremely beneficial to seek job application help from professionals who
understand SEO and can use it to get you noticed and hired.
The job search environment has transformed, application creation tactics have
changed and the old methods have dwindled in effectiveness. The internet, from
social networking to job boards and online application systems, is a powerful tool
that can help employers and candidates to connect in new ways. However, it is
crucial to learn the new rules of engagement if you want your application to
To wrap it all up, here are the key points to keep in mind as you put together your
next job application:
Pay special attention to each document in your application. Make sure that
they are not completely repetitive while still promoting the same branding
strategy in each. Use complimentary formatting and put your name on each
to create name recognition.
Make sure that you are sending all the documents that the company requires
in the format that they suggest.
Use SEO strategies by mentioning keywords and industry terms in your
