Employment – Get the Job – Being Extraordinary Counts

                                              What Makes You Extraordinary?

When you are looking to land the job or tell the hiring official about yourself, skills and experiences what will make you stand out from the crowd? There are many people who do what you do but no one can do it like you because you are an original.

Fear and self-doubt keeps many people from taking action. Don’t be afraid to tell people what they will get by hiring you or buying your products or services but have proof to back up your statements.

Here’s three ways to prove you are the most extraordinary person for the job.

1. Get tangible evidence of what you can do. Do you have a presentation, or interview of you demonstrating your skills? Include it as part of your application packet.

2. Have a customer comment or managerial appraisal that sings your praises and tells how you did a great job or handled a problem? Share that with hiring officials or include a section for testimonials in your resume or professional websites.

3. Make a business social networking page on Facebook or LinkedIn and post pictures as evidence of you doing what you do best like serving as guest speaker, teaching a class, helping customers or volunteering for a local charity.  Include the urls in your resume, cover letter or application packet.

There might be many people who want the same job or client so be willing to go above and beyond the norm. Tell people what makes you the most extraordinary person for the job.

What can you do today and this week to help you stand out from the crowd and move closer to achieving your goals and dreams?

Believe in yourself and take action!
