Going On-Line With Your Job Search

The Web may give you access to job leads, but your success will hinge upon your ability to close the sale during the interview.

If the cyberspace boom has not yet compelled you to log on to the Internet, it should at least have grabbed your attention. If you are looking for a job, the Internet is an information superhighway system that gives you access to an ever-growing number of career, employment, and company sites with just a few mouse clicks.

At the Starting Line

Navigating the information highway is much like driving a paved one. Though you will encounter rush-hour bottlenecks, it's all about how you maneuver the I-way. First, you will need a computer, a modem, a communications program, access to a phone line, and an account with an Internet service provider. These are likely supplied for you (at no cost) on campus, at computer labs, and in residence halls.

Today, the most popular way to access the Internet is the World Wide Web (WWW). By using browser software such as Netscape, Mosaic, or NetCruiser, you can travel to countless home pages on the Web. These pages then can link you quickly to various locations with related data. You also can secure a little corner of cyberspace for yourself by creating a personal home page where you can invite visitors- including prospective employers- to get a peek at your career objectives, talents and qualifications.

The quickest way to get to a Web site on the Net is to type in its "address," or Uniform Resource Locator (URL). But even if you don't know the address of your destination, you can get started by using a search engine. These are directories for the Internet that allow users to type in the subject or keywords in which they are interested. It then scans existing Web sites for a match. A popular choice is Yahoo! www.yahoo.com.

Usenet Groups

Usenet groups, also known as newsgroups or discussion forums, are devoted to a vast array of focused topics, including some on career and job search issues. Usenet group discussions tend to be more well-thought-out than those on chat lines and have standard behaviors-netiquette-that dictate communication. So, before you send a message or respond to a posting, spend some time reading a posting entered by other users.

Usenet groups can be a valuable forum to make connections with people, keep up on industry trends, access job listings, and post resumes. To read or post to newsgroups you will need news reader software. If you want to participate in job hunt discussions, check out misc.jobs.misc.

View the Net From the Employer's Perspective

Employers from corporate America to government agencies are increasingly turning   to the Net. They are hunting actively for talent through employment bulletin boards, commercial resume data banks, and their own corporate home pages. A recruiter from Tandem Computers in Cupertino, Calif., says enthusiastically: "I love the Web. It gave me the solution I had been looking for - a fast and cost-effective way to direct computer-literate candidates to a database. We went live on the Web with our home page in 1994. We post job openings, college recruiting dates, and other employment-related information; but most importantly, we give our home page visitors an intimate look at Tandem."

Preparing Your Electronic Resume

You may choose to send your resume via e-mail or post it on databases located on commercial online services, bulletin boards, newsgroups, or mailing lists. Remember that the Internet is predominately a text-based (not voice/ video-based) tool. The first impressions you make during your job search are always the strongest, so it's critical that the application letter and resume you send via email immediately set the right tone with the reader.

Figuring out how to get discovered and stand out on employers' computer monitors is actually quite simple. The answer is, keywords! Today's Internet search programs leverage keywords. Pay attention to the job descriptions, skills, and talents the employer is seeking. Use these keywords in your application and resume so that they naturally fit the keyword searches a hiring manager would use when scanning the resume databases.

One successful Internet job seeker offers this advice: When applying for jobs on-line, don't send your resume as an attachment to an e-mail message. Create it in ASCII [plain text] and make sure it is clear and easy to read. Since plain text does not allow you to do much with formatting and layout, it is doubly important to present your experience in a cohesive, orderly manner . I tried to leave the format as naked as possible, brought my most relevant information to the top of my resume, and used clear, vibrant language."

Close the Sale the Old-Fashioned Way

Placing your electronic resume on-line is one thing, but getting a job is quite another. The Web may give you access to job leads, but your success will hinge upon your ability to close the sale during the interview. Since organizations put so much information on their Web sites, you can conduct your research in a fraction of the time you would use through traditional means. So there's really no excuse for not being prepared for your interviews. Be sure to give as much consideration to interviews which you have obtained through on-line job searches as you would to those received through more traditional means. And finally, follow up with a thank you e-mail.

Telephone Interviews

Sometimes the importance of the telephone interview becomes overshadowed by the attention given to the on-campus interview. Many employers screen job applicants over the telephone, and the number of these calls is expected to increase as they seek ways to reduce their recruiting costs.

Why Telephone Interviews?

Telephone interviews are used for three main purposes:

  • When you send a resume to an employer that is not interviewing on campus, a recruiter may conduct a telephone interview if your qualifications fit the employer's needs.
  • Recruiters often use the telephone for follow-up questions to students who already have been interviewed.
  • Finally, many calls are placed by managers or supervisors who do the actual hiring. After a recruiter interviews you, your resume is often given to all department heads who may be interested in employing you. Frequently, these managers will telephone you before extending an invitation to come for a site visit.

Preparing for a Telephone Interview

Usually you will have no advance warning before you receive a call. You may answer the telephone perhaps expecting to hear your mother, your date, or a persistent salesperson only to find yourself speaking with a recruiter who holds your future in his or her hands. Consider the following suggestions to be prepared for interview calls whenever they may come:

  • Keep a copy of your cover letter and resume handy.
  • Keep paper and pencil near the telephone at all times.
  • Be sure that everyone who answers your telephone understands you may receive an important, employment-related call at any time.

Doing Well on the Telephone

All Recruiters recognize that an unexpected call places some stress on the job applicant. Among other things, interviewers want to evaluate your ability to handle the situation in a calm, mature manner.

  • If you have an answering machine, be sure your message is clear, concise and reasonably businesslike.
  • Respond positively. Once you realize the call relates to your job search, make every effort to put yourself into the proper frame of mind to be interviewed. If there are distracting background noises, ask the caller for permission to leave the line while you close the door, turn off the stereo, tell others who may be present that you have an important call, or do whatever is necessary to give yourself privacy and quiet.
  • If the telephone rings at a time when it truly is impossible to hold a meaningful conversation, tell the caller that although you are eager to talk, you cannot speak freely at the moment. Ask if you may call back in a few minutes.
  • Listen closely to everything the interviewer says. Think through your responses as carefully as you would if you were sitting across the desk from the recruiter. Remember, too, to ask the questions you want answered and take notes.
  • At the conclusion of a telephone interview, the caller usually will explain what you should expect to happen next. If the interviewer fails to identify the next step, you should politely ask.
  • Before the interviewer hangs up, be certain you have noted his or her first and last name, title, and telephone number.
  • Be sure to thank the person for calling you


The Top Ten Pitfalls in Resume Writing

1. Too long.
  • Most new graduates should restrict their resumes to one page. If you have trouble condensing, get help from a technical or business writer or a career center professional.

2. Typographical, grammatical or spelling errors.

  • These errors suggest carelessness, poor education and/or lack of intelligence. Have at least two others proofread it before submitting. Don't rely on spell-checkers or grammar-checkers on the computer.

3. Hard to read.

  • A poorly typed or copied resume looks unprofessional. Use a computer and a plain typeface, no smaller than a 12-point font. Asterisks, bullets, underlining, boldface type and italics should be used only to make the document easier to read, not fancier. Again, ask a professional's opinion.

4. Too verbose (using too many words to say too little).

  • Do not use complete sentences or paragraphs. Say as much as possible with as few words as possible. A, an, and the, can almost always be left out. Be careful in your use of jargon and avoid slang.

5. Too sparse.

  • Give more than the bare essentials, especially when describing related work experience, skills, accomplishments, interests and club memberships that will give employers desired information. For example, including membership in the Society of Women Engineers, would be helpful to employers who wish to hire more women, yet cannot ask for that information.

6. Irrelevant information.

  • Customize each resume to each position you seek (when possible). Of course, include all education and work experience, but emphasize only relevant experience, skills, accomplishments, activities and hobbies. Do not include marital status, age, sex, children, height, weight, health, church membership, etc.

7. Obviously generic.

  • Too many resumes scream, "I need a job-any job!" The employer needs to feel that you are interested in that position with that company.

8. Too snazzy.

  • Of course, use good quality bond paper, but avoid exotic types, colored paper, photographs, binders and graphics. More and more companies are scanning resumes into a database, so use white paper, black ink, plain type, and avoid symbols, underlining or italics.

9. Boring.

  • Make your resume as dynamic as possible. Begin every statement with an action verb. Use active verbs, describing what you accomplished on the job. Don't write what someone else told you to do; write what you did. Take advantage of your rich vocabulary and avoid repeating words, especially the first word in a section.

10. Too modest.

  • The resume showcases your qualifications in competition with the other applicants. Put your best foot forward without misrepresentation, falsification or arrogance.

The Three R's

The three R's of resume writing are Research, Research, Research. You must know what the prospective company does, what the position involves, and whether you will be a fit, before submitting your resume. That means doing research about the company, the position, and the type of employee the company typically hires.

Research the company.

Read whatever literature the company has placed in the career library. For additional information, try the Internet or, even more directly, call the company. Ask for any literature they may have. Find out how the company is structured, and ask what qualities the company generally looks for in its employees. Ask if they are located in your area, find out the name of the department head and give him or her a call. Explain that you are trying to decide whether or not to apply to their company, and ask for their recommendation for next steps. Thank that person for the information, and ask to whom your resume should be directed.

Research the position.

The more you know about the position, the better able you will be to sell yourself and to target the resume to that position. If possible, interview someone who does that same job. In addition to finding out about the duties, ask if there is on-the-job training, whether they value education over experience (or vice versa), and what kind of turnover the department experiences. Ask what they like about the position and the company; more importantly, ask what they don't like about it.

Finally, research yourself.

Your goal is not just to get a job. Your goal is to get a job that you will enjoy. After you find out all you can about the company and the position, ask yourself honestly whether this is what you really want to do and where you really want to be. The odds are overwhelming that you will not hold this position for more than two or three years, so it's not a lifetime commitment; however, this first job will be the base of your lifetime career. You must start successfully so that future recommendations will always be positive. Furthermore, three years is a long time to spend doing something you don't like, working in a position that isn't challenging, or living somewhere you don't want to live.

Once you have done this research, you will sell yourself more effectively. Most employers devote an average of 15 to 30 seconds to each one, so it is your responsibility to make it attractive, readable and informational. One last word of advice: Before you go to the interview, review the version of your resume that you submitted to this employer. The resume can only get you the interview; the interview gets you the job.





Ten Rules of Interviewing

Before stepping into an interview, be sure to practice, practice, practice. A job seeker going to a job interview without preparing is like an actor performing on opening night without rehearsing. To help with the interview process, keep the following ten rules in mind:
  1. Keep your answers brief and concise. Unless asked to give more detail, limit your answers to two to three minutes per question. Tape yourself and see how long it takes you to fully answer a question.
  2. Include concrete, quantifiable data. Interviewees tend to talk in generalities. Unfortunately, generalities often fail to convince interviewers that the applicant has assets. Include measurable information and provide details about specific accomplishments when discussing your strengths.
  3. Repeat your key strengths three times. It's essential that you comfortably and confidently articulate your strengths. Explain how the strengths relate to the company's or department's goals and how they might benefit the potential employer. If you repeat your strengths then they will be remembered and-if supported with quantifiable accomplishments-they will more likely be believed.
  4. Prepare five or more success stories. In preparing for interviews, make a list of your skills and key assets. Then reflect on past jobs and pick out one or two instances when you used those skills successfully.
  5. Put yourself on their team. Ally yourself with the prospective employer by . using the employer's name and products or services. For example, "As a member of _________I would carefully analyze the ________and__________ ." Show that you are thinking like a member of the team and will fit in with the existing environment. Be careful though not to say anything that would offend or be taken negatively. Your research will help you in this area.
  6. Image is often as important as content. What you look like and how you say something are just as important as what you say. Studies have shown that 65 percent of the conveyed message is nonverbal; gestures, physical appearance and attire are highly influential during job interviews.
  7. Ask questions. The types of questions you ask and the way you ask them can make a tremendous impression on the  interviewer. Good questions require advance preparation. Just as you plan how you would answer an interviewer's questions, write out specific questions you want to ask. Then look for opportunities to ask them during the interview. Don't ask about benefits or salary. The interview process is a two-way street whereby you and the interviewer assess each other to determine if there is an appropriate match.
  8. Maintain a conversational flow. By consciously maintaining a conversational flow-a dialogue instead of a monologue - you will be perceived more positively. Use feedback questions at the end of your answers and use body language and voice intonation to create a conversational interchange between you and the interviewer.
  9. Research the company, product lines, and competitors. Research will provide information to help you decide whether you're interested in the company and important data to which to refer to during the interview.
  10. Keep an interview journal. As soon as possible, write a brief summary of what happened. Note any follow-up action you should take and put it in your calendar. Review your presentation. Keep a journal of your attitude and the way you answered the questions. Did you ask questions to get the information you needed? What might you do differently next time? Prepare and send a brief, concise thank you letter. Restate your skills and stress what you can do for the company.

In Summary

Because of its importance, interviewing requires advance preparation. Only you will be able to positively affect the outcome. You must be able to compete successfully with the competition for the job you want. In order to do that, be certain you have considered the kind of job you want, why you want it, and how you qualify for it. You also must face reality: Is the job attainable?

In addition, recognize what employers want in their candidates. They want "can do" and "will do" employees. Recognize and use the following factors to your benefit as you develop your sales presentation. In evaluating candidates, employers consider the following factors:

  • Ability
  • Loyalty
  • Personality
  • Acceptance
  • Recommendations
  • Character
  •  Initiative
  • Communication skills
  • Work record
  • Outside activities while in school
  • Impressions made during the interview

Resume Instructions

All categories (Objective, Education, etc.) must be shown in order to have a comprehensive resume. Keep it to one page and do not use a font size lower than 10. Remember, this document is to provide highlights of your accomplishments, not a listing of everything you’ve done. Use the Sample Resume shown as a format along with the following guidelines and examples:

Objective. In one sentence, simply state the type of work that you would like to do. If you have one special interest, state it as a special interest (&with a special interest in Network Administration). Similarly, if you have several interests, state them using the connective word and (&with interests in Programming and Data Base Management). If you have no real preference, identify at least two as general using the word or (&with general interests in Digital Design or Signal Processing).

Education. Include GPA only if 3.0 or greater. If your overall GPA is less than 3.0 and your average in your major is 3.0 or greater (i.e. all E.E. courses), use that instead (i.e. Major GPA: 3.2). Also, list all schools attended after high school and include any Certifications or additional Training Certificates.

Honors/Awards can include Scholarships, Honor Societies, Honor Programs, and Special Awards. They are not limited to college achievements, but can also include any recognition from your community, job, or service organizations.

Key Courses are those which are especially relevant to your Objective, not basic courses taken by all students. If you have a special interest in Networking, and have taken courses in Networking, those courses should be listed by name. Do not include course numbers.

Computer Skills must be included, regardless of your major. Categorize according to Proficient (know very well), Working Knowledge (know well enough to work with), and Familiar (limited knowledge). CIS majors may wish to identify skills categorized by Languages, Operating Systems, Databases, and Applications.

Projects. Although this category is not shown in the Sample Resume, it should be added after Computer Skills only if Work Experience is weak or none. Include Senior Projects, course projects, and/or challenging class assignments. Use the same format (bullets and Action Verbs) for Projects as shown in Work Experience.

Work Experience. Format with bullets as shown. Begin each phrase with an Action Verb, emphasizing special accomplishments. Do not use full sentences or personal pronouns such as I, me, or we.

Professional Affiliations. Include any and all organizations with which you have an affiliation such as IEEE, ASME, NSBE, HOST/SHPE, etc. However, write the full organization name instead of using the initials. List all offices held and positions of leadership, such as President, Secretary, Committee Chairperson, etc.

Hobbies/Interests are simply any activities that you enjoy, such as music, reading, or sports.

Activities may include your participation with organizations in which you have more than just an interest, such as a specific varsity or intramural sport, fraternity, sorority, campus organization, club, etc. Include community/religious affiliated activities as well, and list all leadership positions and offices



The Scanner-Friendly Resume

When submitting your resume for employment, whether with a big corporation or a personnel search firm, the chances are growing that scanning technology will be used to read it. The technology responsible for computer-readable resumes operates on the principle of labeling. At the center of the technology are keywords. Call them buzzwords. Call them descriptors. Call them skill words, or job words. Call them whatever you like.

A sample job order might require:

  • Five years' experience as a salesperson
  • College graduate
  • A direct marketer to ethnic communities
  • Heavy traveler
  • Self-starter
  • Team leader

Supplied with these specifications, a computer checks a database for resumes that include these keywords. The secret is to fill your resume with as many labels as possible.

The ultimate keywords come from each employer for each position. You can only make reasonable assumptions about what a specific employer will ask for. You will need to maintain a log of keywords that apply to your occupation and industry. Jot down the words as you come across them in trade magazines, class notes, newspaper ads, etc.

Polishing Your Keyword Skills

Looking up information in the Yellow Pages or a library file uses the same skill necessary to write good keywords. Choose nouns that indicate your accomplishments rather than verbs that focus on duties.

Even a resume with very strong content, one which includes all of the keywords that describe your occupational credentials, can be overlooked. Consequently, the keywords in an electronic resume should be or organized into two sections. The first is a Keyword Preface; the second is the main body of the resume.

The Keyword Preface or Summary appears directly beneath your name and contact information at the top of your resume. It is an inventory of your most important assets. It runs about 20 to 30 items and each item is capitalized and ends with a period. Cover three points in selecting your items:

  • Your skills, abilities, and competencies;
  • Your experience using those skills, abilities, and competencies; and
  • Your accomplishments in using those skills, abilities, and competencies on-the-job.

A keyword summary for a programmer/ analyst might include the following: Oracle, Visual Basic, C++.

Marilyn Moats Kennedy, an author of career planning books and managing partner at Career Strategies, says: "It is important to alter your resume to fit a particular job. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they do not pick up on the keywords in job postings and advertisements and include them in their resumes." Also, electronically transmitted cover letters should also include keywords.

Checklist for Scannable Resumes

1. Choose the most likely keywords and arrange them in order of importance.

2. Choose the correct typefaces. To play it safe, stick to sans serif fonts like Times New Roman.

3. Use font size between 10 and 14 points.

4. Avoid italics, script, and underlined passages.

5. Avoid graphics and gray screens (shading).

6. Use horizontal and vertical lines sparingly and allow 1/4" of white space around them. Omit parentheses and brackets.

7. Use a 24-pin letter-quality or laser printer.

8. Use 8.5" x 11" white paper printed on one side only.

9. Avoid a four-page resume on a folded 11" x 17" sheet.

10. Put name at the top of the page and address and phone number below, each on its own line; put name on top of page two.

11. Avoid stapling or folding resume. Send it flat in a large envelope.

12. Avoid two-column format or resumes that look like new papers or newsletters.

13. Don't condense spacing between letters.

14. The best paper weight for an electronic resume is copy grade (20-25 lb.)

15. Avoid boldface.  Capital letters can be substituted.

16. When faxing your resume, set the fax machine on "fine mode," rather than "standard mode."

Example of a Scanner-Friendly Resume



What Is Networking?

Networking is the art of talking to people for information gathering. You need to be clear about how you’d like their help and clear about what you’re looking for. It is the most effective method for conducting a job search, cited 61% of companies polled in a nation survey of employers.

Networking includes any activity for the mutual benefit of those in the interaction. Activities include the exchange of business cards, telephone calls, introductions, etc. Networking in earnest can provide initial leads that can be pursued by those involved. It is a tool that can help you throughout your career.

Steps To Networking Success

Step 1: Develop A Personal Strategic Marketing Plan. Determine the kind of work you want to do, the industries in which you prefer to work, and the best resources for making contacts in those industries.

Step 2: Determine Who’s Who In Your Network. People in your network can provide you with valuable industry information, contacts for informal interviews, links to provide people in your target companies, and can offer good advice about job search strategies. Most importantly, your network contacts become your publicity agents, so the more people you contact, the greater your chances are for a successful job-search campaign.

Step 3: Prepare A Script Ahead Of Time. Collect advance information about an organization and its membership if you are planning to attend a meeting or conference. Determine which of your attributes or skills will be of most interest to those with whom you will be meeting. Write a 20 to 30 word script that includes your name and the type of advice that you are seeking. The more specific you are, the easier it is for people to help you. Role play with friends and ask them to critique your self-introduction. Revise your self-introduction as your career interests and needs change. Collect advance information about an organization and its membership if you are planning to attend a meeting or conference. Determine which of your attributes or skills will be of most interest to those with whom you will be meeting.

Step 4: Network Everywhere. Opportunities are everywhere. Joining and becoming active in organizations before and after you graduate are excellent ways to expand your network. The more people that are aware of your job search, the better your chances are of learning about job openings.
