To Join Webinar, Or Not? That Is The Question

To join or not to join a webinar, that is the question. In short a webinar is when you receive an email with a link to gain access to an online training website. The training maybe a video or view the trainer’s desktop. This is a great way to get trained on something new and don’t have to leave your home. I always encourage job seekers to participate in a webinar to brush up on their skills, keep your skills current and know what’s going on in your industry. Click Tips2GetaJob Podcast to hear what I had to say about a webinar I participated in and my recommendation.

Why You Didn’t Get The Job

Larry from LinkedIn stated that he has the education, experience and meets the all the employer’s requirements but why doesn’t he get the job? There can be several factors for why you didn’t land the job maybe, you didn’t brag during the interview. Usually we are told not to brag but during the interview is the time to ‘toot your own horn’. You need to share with the interviewee your strengths and accomplishments. Click Tips2GetaJob Podcast to hear the rest of the show!

Cover Letters That Get Read

Brandy in North Carolina sent her question to us from LinkedIn. She wants to know how she can write a cover letter that will get read. Be different, do whatever job seekers are not doing. Don’t cookie cut your cover letters. One thing you can consider doing is instead of sending your cover letter via email type it, print it out and mail it. Think of it this way, when you get mail out of the mailbox and you see a legal size envelope and a small square shape envelope. Which one would you open first?

Why No Response After Follow Up Letter

Why no response after I sent a follow up? The purpose of the follow up due to a job application or an interview. If you followed up after a job application and sent it by email the issue maybe what you put in the subject line. If your statement in the subject line is general and not something that will make the reader want to open the email, that’s what you’ll get (delete) not read.
