Example Employment Application
Consider these 12 tips before pressing "submit" to send your resume:

1. Search job boards and the websites of employers that appeal to you. Print out the job postings that you're interested in pursuing before you apply.

2. Use a highlighter to mark the keywords and industry language used to describe the requirements and responsibilities.

3. Compare those words and phrases to the language that appears in your current resume.

4. Figure out how and where to add the most relevant keywords to your resume, assuming you have the specific knowledge, skills, and experience. Applicant tracking systems will search for keyword matches -- the more matches, the better, which often determines if a recruiter opts to view your resume.

5. Once you're confident that your resume reflects a strong match, go ahead and submit that targeted resume online.

6. If the system requests a cover letter, write a short one that expresses why you're a strong match and why you'd like to join the organization. This is a chance to tout your research on the role.

7. Never submit a generic, one-size-fits-all resume or cover letter. If you really want the position, you'll customize all documents for each job.

8. Once you apply, get to work to find an internal referral to make a personal introduction. Here's how:
Make a list of 50 people you know and ask each one if they know someone who works (or has worked) at that employer.
Attend job fairs to meet face-to-face with employers and other professionals.
Create a free profile and become active on or, which boast a combined 60 million users. Surely you can find someone who knows someone to make that connection.
Create a free account and "follow" friends and post requests for help. (You can follow me at where I post job leads and where fellow followers can help with contacts.)
Join an association in your field and network with like-minded peers.
Connect with your high school and college alumni groups. Old pals could be new connectors.
Talk to your unlikely network. For example, look at the class list of the parents of your kids' friends. Anytime my kids hear about a friend's mom or dad who's lost a job, they tell them to call me. Even though we don't know each other, we have a common connection that can sometimes lead to a contact.

9. Follow up with a call or email to the recruiter responsible for filling the position. Never say, "Did you get my resume?" Instead be ready to reiterate your strong qualifications and interest in the role. You'll have just a brief moment to sell yourself, so rehearse before making the call or sending the email. 

10. Don't know the name of the right person? Cold-call the company and ask an operator to put you through. If that doesn't work, do a Web search on the term "recruiter" or "HR director" along with the name of your employer of choice. The results may reveal the name you're trying to find. LinkedIn is another resource to find the correct name. 

11. Stay top of mind. Every recruiter is different, which makes this a challenge. Some say you're welcome to follow up weekly. Others say every other week is enough. And then there are some who'll tell you to never call. Find the right balance so you're politely persistent without crossing over to a pest. 

12. Ask directly for advice on how and when to follow up. A simple question, "What's the best way to keep in touch?" will give you the details you need to stay ahead of the pack.

How to Detect Bogus Job Ads . .

Indicators of job scams are the following:

0. the inquiring party REFUSES to idetify the name of the business ,,, MLM/PONSI/HERBALIFE/AMWAY/OTHER

1. After responding to the job ad, the company wants job seekers to give up highly personal information via email. Unfortunately, many legitimate companies are beginning to ask for highly personal information from job applicants via email. This makes it more difficult to weed out the scams. In general, never give up bank account information, credit card information, or physical details about eye color, height, hair color, etc...( Call the potential employer and ask them to explain why )

2. A company asks for SSN or bank account information via email.

3. The company is less than one year old.

4. The website for the company that is indicated by the senderís email address does not exist or is "under construction"

5. A check if the domain name of the company in gives highly contradictory information. For example, Macrocommerce says it is a European company based in Berlin, Germany. But a check of on shows that Macrocommerce is actually based in Maryland and is owned by someone other than Macrocommerce. You may be dealing with a subsidiary of a company, or you may have found a problem. When you find contradictory ownership information combined with a request for bank account numbers, consider the job ad a fraud and donít respond to it.

6. Although it is not always an indicator of fraud, notably poor spelling throughout a job ad can tip you off that there may be a problem, especially when found in conjunction with other factors such as no Web site, etc.

7. Are the words Nigeria and Petroleum any where in the email ..( Nigeria has virtualy no real [fraud] laws)
