What to do to make the most out of the summer to brighten my CV when most of the jobs out there aren't what I'm qualified for?
I like to stick people in lists by company and profession to keep track of them.
Morgan 🌐 recommends the following next steps:
It's also good to note that you will more than likely want to start in a coordinator type role (like a recruiting coordinator) before becoming a recruiter. This allows you to learn the staffing process from start to finish before becoming a recruiter, which can be very valuable.
Below are some skillsets companies look for in a recruiter or staffing functions (which would be good to call out in your resume when you apply for jobs in the future and during interviews):
- Time management
- Client management
- Any form of customer service
- Self starter
- Improvements you made in a project or job that helped make a process more efficient (add data points as much as you can!)
- Leadership (this is where volunteer work can really shine)
Best of luck! :)
Those are just three.
Regardless whether the position is an exact fit, working and doing an admirable job is always a proverbial feather in ones cap.
