As heard on The Good Works Show, Employment Specialist Shay Marlowe shares a job tip for those looking for a new job or a better one:

When job hunting don’t forget your ABCs.
A: Apply, over the internet, in person, or by phone
B: Be bold and try nontraditional ideas
C: Choose a career path that gives you long term options
~Cheryl Lockhart, Employment Specialist at Goodwill of North Georgia
Be straightforward when promoting yourself to a potential employer. Don’t expect someone to piece together all of the information you’ve given them about your skills and experience and try to figure out whether you’re a good fit for the job. When developing your resume or cover letter, be sure to connect all of the dots for the hiring manager and make a clear and convincing and straightforward case for why they should hire you. There are no rewards for subtlety in the job search process.
