Job Search Pro Tip*

Updated: Oct 8, 2019

It's the little things we overlook. What's the number one barrier to getting that interview call? Hint: It's not your resume OR your cover letter.

The Secret is No Secret

In the increasingly sophisticated technical landscape of today's job hunt, There's a lot to keep in line. Your resume and cover letter, of course. But don't be caught out without your Socialverse thriving in a dewy, golden glow, abustle with the robust content and healthy network of connections that could only line a pathway to success.

“Turn on the ringer on your phone when you Wake up. It's really almost too easy.”

Social and digital presence are de rigor in today's marketplace, sure. But imagine for a moment you've spent weeks gathering the materials, securing your references, developing a Twitter, Insta, FB, LinkedIn, Vimeo, YouTube, Pinterest, Snapchat & Tumblr presence, then honing a reel, resume and cover letter so sublime, no hiring manager could ignore you. And imagine that was all for not, because you forgot to flip one tiny switch. A missed opportunity you could have avoided for free with your lazy thumb.

Line Up To Miss The FOMO Bus

Don't lose your place in line. Or miss the bus, or whatever. Pick your favourite metaphor for FOMO. Don't miss the call you were waiting, hoping, desperately pleading with an array of deities to get. TURN ON YOUR RINGER, STUPID! We all need our rest, and our phones can be sleep killers. But for the love of cookies, man, turn that sucker back on when you wake up. I speak from experience. Don't be like me.

Don't say I didn't warn you.
