Job Seekers Help Yourself When Applying for Jobs
When you take a look at the jobs on our Job Board, be sure to be honest with yourself on which ones meet your qualifications. Not everyone has all the qualifications of any given job, but you need to make sure you have a clear majority of the ones mentioned and then some!
There are MANY Career Opportunities out there, especially in the Apartment Industry. The first thing you need to do is read the job posting carefully and make sure you understand what the employer is looking for in a prospective employee. Once you know what they are looking for, then you can address the specific job requirements in your cover letter and on line application.
With so many people looking for work, it is important you customize your job responses to address the specifics of the job advertisement. It may seem like an employer might be asking a lot in their application process; however, if you really want to work and want to be considered for a position then you will need to let them know how you meet their specific needs. If you don’t, then you can be assured someone will and they will get the job you wanted.
When you have completed your profile and are about to submit your application, you need to DOUBLE CHECK and then TRIPLE CHECK everything. You need to make sure you are putting your best foot forward with correct spelling, grammar, etc. If you have time, then have someone else proofread your paperwork.
Finally, it is important for you to know who you are applying with when you submit your application and especially when you are interviewing for a job. Take some time to "Google" the company and learn a little something about the company, their culture, the property, and any information you can gather about the hiring manager will help you in the application process. ApartmentCareers has a great feature you can use in the application process that allows you to see if you have LinkedIn connections at the company. Take the opportunity to let any of your connections know you have applied for a position at their company. Maybe they will be kind enough to reach out to the hiring manager and get your application moved to the top of the stack!
Good Luck and Success in Your Job Search!
