How to Land a Job by Using Your Resume and Cover Letter to Tell Your Story

The job hunt is overwhelming — and you’re not alone. Although there’s no blueprint for landing a job, there are things you can do to better set yourself up to stand out to recruiters, and find and land a job that suits you.

In preparation for Pitch Perfect: A Sales Hiring Event with News America Marketing on Thursday, October 11th, 2018, we’re sharing this action-item filled talk by Ralph Nader, Senior Director, Head of Talent Acquisition, and one of the News America Marketing team members you’ll meet at the event.

At our exclusive event, select FindSpark attendees will be considered for the Account Coordinator role in the Sales Development Program at News America Marketing.

“For entry-level jobs, we care more about your potential than your experience,” says Ralph.

So, what do you need to do to make yourself relevant? First, figure out what you want to do. Second, figure out where you want to be in 5 years, and how this role would get you there.

Pro tip: Tailor your resume and cover letter based on the job description and include as many keywords as possible. Many recruiters, including Ralph himself, search for keywords on resumes.
