Top 7 Tricks For Getting an Interview

Have you tried everything and you still cannot get an interview. The site, How to Write a Resume has some tricks for getting an interview:

  1. Use a different color paper for your resume
  2. Use a different size paper for your resume
  3. Inside contact
  4. Certified Letter
  5. Send your resume with a gift
  6. Deliver the resume in person
  7. The post-it note trick

Some of them are quite good suggestions – like different size paper, and using certified letter etc. However some of them are very tricky – like the post-it note trick:

The post-it note trick. In larger companies (and sometimes in medium/smaller companies) a secretary or an office assistant will open the resumes for the employees. This person is responsible for screening for junk mail and to weed out non-qualified candidates. Therefore, here is the trick. Take a regular Post-it note, and write something like “This one looks good! – J”, and attach it to your resume. Who is “J”? Who cares! The point is that the hiring manager will get a resume with a Post-it note on it, stating that it’s good. Therefore, they are more likely to pay close attention to the resume at the direction of another employee. By the time the person realizes its not a note from their mail screener, you’ve already gotten your resume reviewed – is it deceptive? – no, its effective and innovative advertising.

Is it deceptive? Yes it is. This is tricking the hiring manager with false message.

But read on from trick one to six – you may find some that suit the situation.
