Summary:How to apply to a job posting and have chances to be hired: All steps required from checking out the outsourcer, composing your resume, presenting your credentials, improving your CV on the way, up to finally applying for the actual job. What are the common mistakes we make when applying for a job through an online job posting? What could be improved in our applications? What you should do and what should be avoided after your application has been submitted.
Description
We see a lot of job postings on-line every day and we tend to send our resume for many of them, thus the (positive) replies we receive are not that many. Why does this happen?

Working as well as an outsourcer and posting jobs on-line I have seen hundreds of applications. What makes me smile when the application comes in and what makes me want to delete the application instantly (in the end I don’t but I would love to).
What are the common mistakes we do and how could they be avoided?

• Drafting you resume: what information should be included
• How to create a good resume using your existing resources
• How to improve your resume with additional resources obtained on the way
• Important steps before applying to a job posting: what to check before you apply
• How to apply to a job posting: what to send, how to send it and what to expect
• Follow-up: After a job posting and after a job completion


After the presentation there will be enough time to discuss any issues and reply to all questions arising from the presentation or things you always wanted to ask. You may send your questions in advance if you wish, using the forum under the webinar’s description
