For job seekers, getting the job interview is the ultimate opportunity to show themselves off and get the job, and while many of these professionals spend a great deal of time on their resume and preparing for the job interview only a few do make it. Why? Because they stand out. 

The job market is bustling right now. Recruiters are in full force looking out and job seekers are going wild on their job searches. So, it’s imperative for you to be the one who stands out, especially when applying to jobs online. Because every single detail counts when it comes to making the final list and getting to the job interview. And there’s a lot who can do. To help you out we gathered a list of tips that will make stand out among the crowd, get on the first row, and increase your chances of landing a job interview. 

Go from the job hunt to the job interview 

You start researching online and you find the perfect job offer. Your application is the second step following on a job hunt, and your resume is the key element for your success, therefore you need to make sure you are that shining light that emerges among the mass. How? Easy. By making sure your profile is fully optimized and gets the recruiters’ attention. 

Just take us by example. We’ll let you know how to catch the recruiters’ eyes and go past the CV screening stage, right until the (so desired) job interview. 

When applying for a job on Landing.jobs your profile is your business card, thus you want to be as catchier as possible. Why? Just because the more appealing you make it to recruiters the more chances you get to land a job interview and, ultimately (let’s hope for it), get the job.

Here’s how to do it. Just follow these 5 tips and you’ll succeed: 

1. Make sure your profile is complete and as accurate as possible 

To make sure your potential employer gets a full picture of your background, skills, accomplishments and/or professional experiences you must make sure you have a complete profile. This means you must fill your profile with all the relevant information, namely, your current professional situation. Whether you are employed and open to hearing about new opportunities or not, actively looking for a job or just browsing around, it doesn’t matter. Just fill as much as possible. Also give details on your education, obtained certifications, skills, professional experience, social media links, as well as personal details (current location, spoken languages, contacts, citizenship, and so on). 

This will help recruiters to have a wide vision of your background and to cast you as a potential employee. 

2. State your preferences 

When filling your profile, make sure you list your preferences related to the type of job you are looking for, your areas of interest, what your remote work policy preference is, as well as, how you stand to what concerns your relocation preferences. 

By doing so, the platform algorithm will select the most accurate job opportunities to display to you and, at the same time, will give recruiters highly important information on what you are willing to do and if you are fitted for the position they are recruiting for. 

3. Don’t waste time 

It’s sheer math. The more you wait, the worse it gets. By the minute, employers get dozens of applications and – most of the time – it’s really hard for them to spend as much time as desired on every single one of them. Well, most of the time they rely on algorithms to do the first screening and selection. So, make sure you are one of the first ones to make the cut. You saw a job offer that suits you, so apply for it. Don’t go wasting any time. The earlier you submit your application, with a fully optimized profile, the better chances you get to be screened and selected for the job interview.  

4. Use your profile as your marketing tool 

When accessing your profile on Landing.jobs you get the chance to speak up for your value and boost your chances to be selected and land the job interview you want so profoundly. 

You can make a video presentation of yourself. Use all your creativity and display your best skills and traits. This will help you to get a bit closer to your potential recruiters and give them a deeper insight into your personality and experience. Want to stand out from the crowd? Here’s a chance to do so. 

5. Go deep into your professional experiences 

In other words: don’t just list your experiences, write about them: what did you do in each of them, which skills have you mastered while being there, and what have you done that made you stand out among your peers, for instance. By doing so, not only are you able to use some impacting keywords (that will boost your CV and get the algorithm’s attention on the first screening), but it will also give some juicy intel for recruiters so that they can figure out why are you the one for them and/or can you be a valuable professional for their company.
