In order to drive away all uncertainties associated with hiring you, you need to present the hiring manager with a solid reason to shortlist you as a possible candidate.
If you are a skilled individual – specifically in the areas that matter most to the employer – this problem is readily resolved.
Chart out what your best professional face is and then make sure that it is made evident to the person or persons who is responsible for deciding if you are going to be shortlisted for an interview.
Skills are not easy to gauge, even if you are doing a thorough self-analysis.
Many times, we do not pick up the right type of skill, resulting in hiring managers rejecting our applications, and wrongly believing that we are not the type of person that they are looking for.
In order for you to be able to provide correct information about your capabilities, you have to first determine what they are.
The best way to find out how capable you are is to create a list of skills that you possess that are in direct sync with the job description provided by the recruiter.
Once you have a list of things that you are capable of doing, your work will become much easier.
