Knobull Makes Sure That Job Seekers Stand Out In The Crowded Market

eTradeWire News/10745258
BOSTON - eTradeWire -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull reported, "For much of 2023, we've been left to deal with a cooling job market after its two-year post-pandemic surge. Job openings have gone down.

The job-hunting process which will require going above and beyond the bare minimum to land roles is the result."

It's about how you use what you know to make an impact, drive revenue, overcome challenges, and make a difference. And it's how you leverage these things to tell your story throughout the job search. Using a career coach like JobStars, located on the Knobull homepage, can help!

The Pros and Cons of Using AI In The Job Search

A Wakefield Research survey taken in March reports that 39% of 500 recruiters argued against using AI tools to apply for jobs. Some of them even took to social media to voice their displeasure with the recent trend. These recruiters would rather you display your experiences and achievements.

Another survey shows that nearly half of the 2,153 applicants who used ChatGPT to write both cover letters and resumes impressed their recruiters and got responses from them. However, the larger problem stems from the fact that this strategy points to a larger issue in the overall job search process.

When job seekers tailor their resumes to fit a job description rather than showcasing their own achievements, they risk misrepresenting themselves.

Strategic Ways to Stand Out in A Crowded Marketplace and Nab Jobs

Being strategic and authentic in your search will set you up for success in numerous ways.

•Network for an edge: Networking with other professionals and leaders in your industry is a surefire way to build connections and leverage that coveted employee referral right into your next job. There's no doubt about the effectiveness of networking.

This is also how you can learn about unadvertised opportunities. Start by reaching out to industry experts and thought leaders.

•Establish a strong online presence: Create a strong professional online presence on platforms like LinkedIn. This automatically earns you credibility when recruiters and hiring managers check out your page.

•Prepare for your interviews and follow-up: Research the company, the position, and the interviewer. Make sure you know your stories and practice them. Taking edX courses at Knobull will boost success.

•Keep generating opportunities: Bentley concluded, "Unless you've signed on the dotted line, never stop seeking opportunities. Create a daily or weekly target of number of networking calls, applications, and job search activities you'd like to accomplish, and don't stop until you've negotiated and signed the offer letter."
