Have you ever had the experience of sending out your resume EVERYWHERE, and getting no results?

No emails.

No callbacks.

No interviews.

It sucks, doesn’t it?

I had that experience a few years back…

And then a profound realization changed everything for me.

I realized that…

You’ve Got To Make An Irresistible Offer

And a boring, traditional resume just doesn’t do that.

(Here’s a free resource that’ll help you out with this, by the way)

See, employers and recruiters are used to seeing the same thing over and over:

A plain-Jane resume and cover letter. And they’re dying to get something fresh… something that makes an impact… something that’s irresistible.

We’ve all sent in boring resumes in our lives… but now, it’s time for an update.

3 Ways To Practically Guarantee You Get The Job

So here are three ways to practically guarantee you get the job:

1. Prove You’ll Earn Them More Than You Cost

Here’s the truth: You need to make your employer a profit.

Meaning… hiring you comes at a cost.

And likewise, the effort from the work you do brings in revenue.

So what’s the easiest way to practically guarantee you get the job you’re applying for?

Simply prove, based on past results, that you’re going to bring in more revenue to the business than you cost them.

For example, one campaign I thought of and helped run at my past employer paid for my annual salary within a couple of weeks.

That’s solid, tangible proof that I’m worth more than I cost.

So, if you haven’t already – start thinking of measurable ways you bring in revenue for a company – and then put those detailed examples on your resume.

The numbers will speak for themselves.

2. Provide Credible Proof That You Can Perform

Testimonials from credible people – whether they’re mentors, peers, employers, or teachers are one of the best ways to show proof of past performance and character…

And past performance combined with character are 2 huge elements employers look for in potential employees.

The good news is that LinkedIn has made gathering these testimonials easier than ever… so if you don’t have any yet, think of a few people that could provide great testimonials for you, and ask for them.

They’ll make a huge difference in your next job application.

(Here’s a great resource to help showcase this)

3. Work To Learn, Not To Earn

When you’re first starting out – and you don’t have proof of generating results or credible testimonials, then the best way to get your foot in the door is by working for free for a week… or even up to 3 months.

In fact, I got my dream job – the position I had my heart set on – by offering to work for free for 3 months.

Now, of course you don’t want to do this for ANY employer…

Only offer this if you’re fairly certain that working for free will lead to a job… and that job will open up a world of opportunities within 2-3 years for you.

That’s what it did for me, and that’s what it could do for you.

And Here’s A Fourth Way…

Your bonus tip is to stand out online. Why?

The first thing any employer is going to do when you apply is Google your name…

And what if what they found blew them away so much so that they shortlisted you for the position immediately?

That’s what can happen with a great online presence – and nowadays, that’s easier than ever to achieve.

In fact, here’s a free resource that’ll help you get started in minutes. You don’t have to be tech savvy, you don’t need to spend any money, and they’re easy to use.
