MCKENZIE SCOTT SUGGESTS: ASK YOURSELF THE MAGIC QUESTION - WHO WILL HIRE YOU,
DENVER, CO - May 15, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- McKenzie Scott, the Denver-based
nationwide firm that provides a variety of technological and personal resources
to those seeking jobs over $75K, has one piece of basic advice for job seekers at
any level -- Always keep in mind what kind of firm is likely to hire you, and
Dennis Johnston, Senior Managing Partner at McKenzie Scott in Pittsburgh,
maintains that this simple rule will keep people from making a lot of common
mistakes. "If they kept this in mind while creating their resume, most people
would leave out a third of what they included, and add half a dozen different
things. In their letters and emails, they'd be a lot more specific about how
they could contribute," Johnston observes.
"Instead of talking about themselves and their experience, they'd start out
talking about the employer's challenge and opportunities, and they'd show they
know something about that employer and their industry. When they choose
companies and organizations to contact, they'd select those that are most likely
to need their talents, and contact individuals directly responsible for hiring
someone with their skills."
Johnston's firm reviews the materials of thousands of job seekers every month,
and using dozens of websites, gathers information about their job search
activities, achievements or lack of them, as well as personal strengths and
McKenzie Scott is the nation's leading firm in providing technology and team
resources to assist professional, managerial, and executive job seekers. Their
services are described at www.mckenziescott.com.
