  • Hey Ambitious Professionals! It's Linda Raynier of lindaraynier.com,

  • guiding you to a career and life you'll truly enjoy. And in today's video,

  • I'm going to teach you one key strategy on how you can get a job

  • whether you are under qualified or overqualified.

  • As a career strategist I've been able to help numerous professionals land job

  • offers that provide them with long-term growth potential and if this is

  • something that you're interested in working with me one on one I can give

  • you details about that at the end of this video. So you are looking for a job

  • you have updated your resume, you've applied everywhere online, you've tried

  • to network and you've basically done everything you could to try to increase

  • your chances of getting interviews and therefore a job offer.

  • However, throughout this whole process you've been noticing that there's been

  • this little voice murmuring in the back of your mind

  • and it's been saying things like "you don't have enough experience" or "you have

  • too much experience" you're overqualified. I see this all the time and I read

  • comments from people that say "I can't get my foot in the door because I need

  • to have a job to get a job" or "they don't value my years of work experience and

  • they're just looking for someone who's younger more energetic and cheaper than

  • me". Now I know it's easy to focus on the negative but what about when you focus

  • on the people who you know who were in similar situations as you they were

  • either also under qualified or overqualified but they ended up

  • successfully getting job offers. They clearly did something that you aren't

  • doing so now let's channel your energy and let's focus it in a way where we're

  • gonna learn and you're gonna implement my key strategy on how you can get your

  • next job offer regardless of whether you have a lot of experience or very little

  • experience. And that key strategy can easily be summed up in one word and that

  • word is focus focusing means when either you are writing your resume or you're

  • selling yourself in interviews that you are honing in on the key aspects of the

  • position that you have that are happen to be relevant for the role as well so

  • that means your key skills technical qualifications experience or knowledge

  • anything that is related to the role that you have that the role is asking

  • for you need to focus in on those key aspects this is actually

  • one of the concepts that I teach in my course top-notch resume which is an

  • online self-study course which has been super effective in helping professionals

  • whether they had little experience or tons of experience in not only landing

  • interviews but successfully getting job offers by rewriting their resume using

  • my approach so let's say you're someone who has very little work experience and

  • you consider yourself under qualified for any job that you want to apply to

  • but at the same time you want to be a marketing professional if you've

  • recently graduated and you want to be in a marketing position for your next job I

  • assume that in your undergrad or college program you studied some aspects of

  • marketing so you want to hone in on the key concepts that you learned in that

  • program related to marketing and make sure that you highlight them on your

  • resume so think of the key concepts that you might have studied that would be

  • relevant for this position for example maybe you studied the three P's product

  • pricing and place or you studied digital social media marketing or perhaps you

  • studied marketing concepts such as marketing mix target market and any

  • other relevant marketing concepts so what I'm trying to say is just because

  • you don't have the exact marketing experience it doesn't mean that you

  • can't include the knowledge that you've gained through your education on your

  • resume and in your interviews to help you sell yourself so that is why it is

  • important for you to focus on those key concepts and making sure that they are

  • relevant to the position the same concept applies if you happen to be

  • overqualified for certain positions and again this concept is in top-notch

  • resume which if you're curious about it you can go down to the link in the

  • description box after the video but if you're actually an experienced

  • professional with many years of experience and you're wondering and

  • having trouble with cutting things down to make them more concise that is

  • actually a great problem to have instead of having to wrack your brain trying to

  • remember the knowledge and the concepts that you learned back in school as

  • you're less experienced counterparts are having to do you merely have to pick and

  • choose the exact relevant experiences that are a perfect

  • for the position that you're applying to and the way you'll do this is by

  • focusing in on the keywords on the job description that are important for the

  • employer and making sure that they are mapped onto your resume and are

  • discussed in your interviews so remember the key strategy is to focus focusing

  • your experiences and your knowledge onto your resume and in your interviews is

  • what's going to attract employers to you and eventually make them want to hire

  • you and I thought that it would be fun to end things off with a bit of an

  • inspiring quote specifically on this topic and it's by Aristotle and he says

  • "It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light" now if you
