About the Event

With the U.S. unemployment rate at record highs, and multiple tech companies doing furloughs and layoffs, each open position has many more applications than before. On average, each corporate job opening attracts 250 resumes (and this was before the current economic crisis). The average recruiter or hiring manager spends 5-10 seconds looking at a resume or LinkedIn profile, before deciding whether to dive deeper (or not), and then make the decision to set up an interview. So communicating your story well and making it stand out are key to moving yourself down the hiring funnel — from application to interviews to a job offer. We will cover a few different topics, including: How to best answer the “Tell Me About Yourself” question How to use storytelling to make your LinkedIn profile stand out How to get more interviews with key changes in your resume How to network your way into companies with zero contacts How to approach salary negotiations, close the pay gap, and not leave money on the table You can connect with Rahul on LinkedIn
