Secrets Recruiters Don’t Want You to Know

During this presentation, you will gain insight into what HR recruiters look for when they are evaluating your qualifications. In 2014, you must do more than applying on job boards. There are far more candidates applying for the same positions, so you have to differentiate yourself. You will learn what to write in your cover letter, why keywords really matter and how to choose them, secrets about thank you letters, and what to say during a phone screen to get a “yes”. Understanding how to master each of these job search components is the key to your success in 2015!
