What would you do for the job you like most ? How will you impress the HR team ? What is the difference between you and other candidates ? In other words, how do you promote yourself ?
Last week, it was a viral news among HR specialists about a excellent-creative CV. I wonder who gave him the job he wanted most.
You can find more information here. Thanks Ruxandra for the idea.
Creative, I agree. But not the most creative I’ve seen so far. During my collaboration with McCann Erickson New York, I’ve had the opportunity to access their wide CVs database. The most impressive one was a short, funny but professionally edited video, which described both the personal and professional history line of the employee.
Anyway, to answer the first two questions opening this current post, here are some useful tips I’ve learned on my own:
– always say that being part of a company is much more important to you than the money you earn;
– display your self-confidence without being cocky; although employers are arrogant themselves, they won’t tolerate any display of arrogance coming from you;
– mention your strengths but do not forget about your weaknesses. Deliver them in a nice way, though. For example, state that you’re biggest flaw is that you’re a perfectionist.
If you’re in the “image-building” industry and you don’t have any problems promoting and selling yourself as any other good on the market, getting a job should be easy peasy.
It is just a model of how to brand yourself in order to sell yourself in the jobs-market. I totally agree with you regarding the tips you offer. We are on the same side of the story.

Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
