With the Atlanta job market being competitive and potentially hundreds of resumes being received for one job opening, most employers and recruiters use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to streamline their recruiting process. These systems search for keywords in the resumes that match the requirements in the job description; and only the resumes that are the best match are pulled for review. To be selected for an interview, be sure that your resume includes the appropriate keywords.
Atlanta is growing! In the past couple of years, many Fortune 500 companies and international companies have announced major expansions in or have relocated their headquarters in Atlanta. They are investing billions of dollars in Atlanta – with over 20,000 new jobs in Midtown Atlanta alone announced within the past 2 years.
When I walk outside my office, I can see over a dozen cranes within 1 square mile of my location building offices, apartments and condos. It is on the top of the list for major expansion from top technological companies, including Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and NCR. In addition, thousands of new office spaces for technological innovation have opened here. Job growth in the next few years should be healthy here.
Atlanta is a robust, yet highly competitive market, where talent wins! When searching for your next career role in Atlanta, be sure to network, be creative, be tenacious and present a strong profile that immediately communicates your strengths, credentials and accomplishments…the VALUE you offer potential employers.
Read position descriptions very carefully and make sure those key words and requirements are mirrored in your resume and cover letter.
Research every company that you apply to in order to fully understand (a) what they do; (b) why you want to work for them; and (c) how you can contribute to their mission.
Most of all, know what you want your next step on the career ladder to be and be able to articulate that with clarity. This will affirm to you and your prospective company that you are the best fit. If you’re not clear yourself, start by defining what success means to you and explore how that aligns with your top strengths, values and needs. Or work with a career coach who can help.
Networking is the key to any effective job search. However, networking is not about chatting with someone and asking them to, “Keep you in mind if they hear about something.
You need to have a strategy for how that person might be able to help you, and you need to ask open ended questions.
