Bestseller 'Get Noticed & Get Hired' Helps Children Of 9/11 Stand Out In Their Employment Search

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's job market is extremely competitive, especially for new graduates.  Tuesday's Children is conducting a career conference for the children they support at the LinkedIn headquarters in NYC on 1/10/13.

Get Noticed & Get Hired, the #1 Best Seller by Steve Matter, was chosen by the charity as part of their career guidance program to help the students stand out on paper and in person as they go through the job search process.  "I'm honored that Tuesday's Children selected my book to help their students.  There are still millions of people out of work," states Matter.  "The Jobless Rate is 14.4%, which includes those receiving unemployment checks, the unemployed no longer eligible for govt. assistance and those working part time who can't find full time work.  There is tremendous competition for job opportunities."

Get Noticed & Get Hired takes job applicants through practical tactics and strategies to stand out from competitors with the best resume structure and interview preparation.  "The opening paragraph of your resume needs to grab the attention of the employer just like the opening paragraph of a good book needs to grab the reader's attention.  Most managers spend an average of 30 seconds scanning resumes to see if the applicant is a viable candidate. Your skill sets and experience need to be articulated and be in alignment with the job position in your opening 'Career Summary' paragraph," said Matter.  "Too many applicants make the mistake of just listing their job history without summarizing their skill sets and relevant experience in the beginning of their resume.  Just listing your work history is like a 'Where's Waldo' picture for the recruiter or hiring manager."

A resume needs to be tailored to each job application to be in alignment with the specific position.  "Too many applicants take a 'shotgun' approach with their resume," Matter explained.  "Resumes are not a one size fits all and people who take that approach are failing to maximize their potential to get selected for a job interview."  Having a written plan to go about your job search is essential for success.  You have to have daily activities to stay positive, network, search online for job opportunities and practice for your eventual job interview.
