Highlight past experience: Employers would like to know how your past experience will fit into their organization. Be sure to highlight this in order to show how much of an asset you will be to them.
Social media is your friend: Employers today do online searches for potential candidates. Commenting, tweeting and blogging about information that you know about your industry will cast a positive bright light on you.
Show facts and figures: If you are applying for a position such as sales, it’s very important to highlight what percentage you were able to grow sales by or how many people were affected by your work.
