The traditional approach to getting a job is to go out to a business and use your resume and interview to tell employers about your skills and experience.
It’s the equivalent of saying “Here I am, I have skills.”
It creates work for the business to figure out if those skills are relevant, legitimate, or even valuable. And as a result, it doesn’t help you find the best opportunities.
The better approach is to do the work yourself and come to a business with a pitch on how you will create value.
Instead of writing about how you have SEO skills, send in an analysis of and plan to improve the companies SEO.
Instead of listing your excel skills, send in a spreadsheet you made that could be valuable for there work.
Instead of saying that you can create value, actually create value and watch how many opportunities it will open for you.
