Korn Ferry: 4 Tips for Landing the Job
The large amount of career websites and jobs being posted online has made searching for a new job position both easier and more difficult. The ease with which a job hunter can locate open positions and turn in an application is certainly a plus. However, it’s this same system, where most online job postings receive hundreds of applicants, that makes it harder to stand out. Chief Executive Officer of Korn Ferry, Gary Burnison, cites this as one of the reasons why it’s important to be able to make an impression beyond just your resume.
Burnison provides the following tips to help candidates land the job:
- “Know Thyself”
- Lose the Resume
- Tell a Story
- Focus on your “ACT”
