The Holy Grail Of The Job Hunt: How To Get An Instant Interview

So, this past Friday I had my wisdom teeth removed. The Youtube videos make it look so much more enjoyable than it actually is. This means that I have basically spent all of my time either sleeping, watching the Grammy’s or surfing the net (does anyone still use that expression?) while also feeling like the State Puff Marshmallow Man with four holes in the back of his mouth.

This week I’m going to keep it brief, but hopefully I can provide one golden tip for all you readers out there.

First off, budget your time as wisely as possible. I’m thankful I did not have to get my surgery done while I was still in school or working. I just don’t think I could handle the humiliation. OK, it’s not that bad, but it’s still not fun.

That’s not what I wanted to talk about though. This past Wednesday I discovered the Holy Grail of job hunts. (Can you tell I’ve been watching a lot of Merlin?) A way to guarantee an interview. It is elusive, but will almost always come to fruition.

This Grail manifests itself in the form of a job fair. I had applied to a certain coffee company online around a month and a half ago with no response. I went to their job fair this past week and BAM! (yes, BAM!) instant interview spot.

I can’t tell you how to find these fairs. That is up to you. Scour websites, bulletin boards and the like and you may just stumble upon one. Good luck!

This doesn’t mean I’ll get the job, but no matter what it was great experience and has boosted my confidence once again in the hunt. I feel like Sir Pellinore on the hunt for the Questing Beast. Yes, more Merlin references. Once my face returns to that of a normal human being then I will once again venture out into the perilous search for employment.

My cheeks are yelling at me in agony, so I’m going to keep this brief this week. Anyway, good luck to those of you writing mid-terms. Reading week is almost here! You can do it!

    Your résumé is the first step in the process of a strategic career move. The résumé is an essential piece to all types of job searching approaches, as well as playing a crucial role through the interview and selection processes.
    One of the most useful techniques for constructing your résumé is to focus it on a specific target job, and then go through and deconstruct the deliverables of that job from other related job postings. Accomplishing this successfully will generate a résumé that not only opens doors toward future career success, but assists you in preparation for the interview process.
