Recently, Colorado's economy has grown so much that there are a lot of potential employment opportunities out there. Along with this comes great competition as a candidate. This is extremely frustrating and highly discouraging especially for professionals who may be switching careers or perhaps recent graduates looking to start their career. The Denver Post did a great article (www.denverpost.com/recommended/ci_13735365) that answered a lot of questions that often time we start inquiring about while on the hunt for that perfect position somewhere great.
"Why aren't I getting any responses from my resume"? "What can I do to stand out from the crowd?" "What are my chances of being hired for this position?" All of these are normal questions that most people start asking themselves. What's dangerous is when we start doubting our talents and abilities. This can come at different times for everyone and if you're lucky, then you may not have these questions come to mind. For those who aren't so lucky, it's really important to try starting out on the right path with the increasingly difficult fight to land the position you're going for. This can happen in several ways but the most important way is to stand out from the competition allowing the spotlight to shine on you and what your can offer the company you're applying for. Having a perfect resume isn't enough anymore. They simply get washed out in the hordes of seemingly endless emails that recruiters and hiring managers are sifting through. Cover letters are great but the same issue tends to happen with them as well; they seem to just blend in too much with the others. So what can you do?
