Get the Edge with Resume Distribution

Getting an interview requires getting a great resume to the right audience. Employment Authority can help you through the difficult job-search process with a guarantee you will have the most comprehensive resume distribution and job-search service in the country. Your resume is sent to potential employers identified in our national bank of corporations. The companies are chosen and listed by industry, location, and size. According to industry experts, your resume does not need to be chronological, but it has to stand out. There are two resume formats that conceal your shortcomings: the functional and combination. A functional resume lists skills and accomplishments over a period of time. A combination resume merges the chronological and functional styles to present your knowledge and abilities gained from your experience; often these abilities are listed in reverse chronological order. Your well crafted resume must follow with a ''good'' cover letter, which is a brief, one page introduction addressed to a specific person. It should never be addressed to 'Whom it may concern'. Be proactive by expressing your confidence, then follow up with a phone call. You might be noticed the second time around and it doubles the chances of you scoring an interview.

Are you bored with your current job? Caught in a rut? Stuck in a promotion block? Overworked? Underpaid? In other words, are you hit by a severe bout of the job-time blues?

The way out is obvious, isn’t it? You must begin to search for a new employer. The big question is: how?

Fortunately, for all the job-hunters out there, there’s Employment Authority. At Employment Authority, we help you through the difficult job-searching process.

The first step is to write a resume and then ensure accurate resume distribution to potential employers. To market yourself effectively, your resume must define and state a unique selling proposition (USP) – which establishes you as the best candidate in the market. A strong, credible USP gives you a higher ''brand recall value'' to help you get your foot in the door to be chosen for an interview over dozens, even hundreds, of competing applicants.

Those without an established USP could be selling themselves short. To avoid this, sign up with Employment Authority and work hand-in-hand with our experts to re-discover your strengths and identify your USP! With your customized resume and USP in our hands, Employment Authority ensures fast resume distribution to hundreds of potential employer. These potential employers are identified by name and designation, carefully chosen just for you from our bank of thousands of corporate companies listed by industry, location, size and other parameters.

The essence of beating opposition and being chosen for that elusive interview lies in reaching the right audience with a good resume. Employment Authority’s skilled team of resume writers offer the following tips to help you get a start.

1. Your resume need not be chronological. The chances are your employment ‘history’ is riddled with holes, gaps, or limitations. Instead, try two formats that conceal your shortcomings well: functional and combination. A functional resume lists skill categories and accomplishments over dates. A combination resume merges the chronological and functional styles by presenting your knowledge and abilities gained from work experience in reverse chronological order. The stress on your skills, knowledge, abilities, and accomplishments will, for instance, override and ‘hide’ a possible gap you have had in your employment history.

2. Detail how you stand out from the crowd, even if the plus points you are able to talk about seem apparently trivial: Do you speak another language? Can you troubleshoot a faulty computer? Do you have the ability to calm troubled tempers and smooth ruffled feathers? These are all assets and should be listed as such. Don’t underestimate your talents. They all add up. If you want to be called in for an interview, your resume has to stand out.

3. A ''good'' resume must follow a ''good'' cover letter. The latter should be brief – never more than one page – and addressed to a person, not to ‘gentlemen’ and never to ‘Whom it May Concern’. Push your USP and prod your future employer into asking the mental question: ''Why should I hire this person?'' To find the answer, he will scroll down and read your resume. With this, you have achieved your first objective.

4. The last bit of the cover letter should be proactive – express your confidence that you are a perfect fit for the job and request action.

5. Finally, it’s no trouble for you to send another cover letter and resume as follow up. You might be noticed the second time around. Mathematically, of course, it doubles chances of scoring an interview!

Remember, it is less effective sending your cover letter and resume to only one or two employers. With Employment Authority’s top-rated resume distribution facility, this huge problem disappears because they are geared to send your resume to all potential employers in the industry and geographical area of your choice!

It is important that you choose your resume distribution partner well. Check rates, services, database sizes, contract terms and conditions. Compare thoroughly and double check the fine print of competing contracts to identify loopholes. Verify reputations with independent agencies. Employment Authority inevitably tops every chart.

As industry leaders, we guarantee that we will provide you with the most thorough and comprehensive resume distribution and job-search services in the country. With Employment Authority, you reach virtually every potential employer in any given market.

Forbes Reports 151,352 Layoffs for January Itself; Employment Authority Proposes Alternative Job Search Approach

Pasadena, CA — According to a compilation by Forbes recently, there were 151,352 layoffs at America’s 500 largest public companies in the month of January. MORE

"There are always vacancies. Organizations are born, organizations expand, workers become restless, quit, change jobs, move, become ill long-term, or become handicapped, retire, or die. There are always jobs out there waiting to be filled. The fact that you can't find those jobs only means the vacancy hasn't been advertised, or you're not using the right method to find it. When the Internet or job-postings, or agencies, or ads, or resumes, don't work, there are other ways of turning up the job you want. So, if you're coming up 'empty,' you need to change the search method you've been using. ... To speed up your search for one of the jobs that are out there, go after many different organizations, instead of just one or two."
