Savvy Job Hunters Turn the Tables On Employers

Share Article

A new job hunting strategy is lining up dozens of interviews for each job seeker rather than employers lining up dozens of job seekers for each opening.

Savvy job hunters like Eric VonBernewitz are landing quality jobs quickly using the basics of marketing and the power of numbers to line up dozens of interviews with various employers.

The traditional method of job hunting is to search through the classifieds and online job sites where thousands of job hunters compete for a limited number of job openings. Instead of going the traditional route, some job hunters are advertising their job skills directly to decision makers at thousands of targeted companies, even if the companies are not running recruiting ads, and it is working.

Rather than being one of many of applicants for a single position, these job hunters are getting multiple employers coming after them to interview. Job hunters like Eric VonBernewitz are finding the job hunt to be an exciting experience by applying the basics of marketing to their job hunt, and it works. Through the online service job hunters are faxing thousands of companies their resume and cover letter requesting interviews for employment.

Eric used JobsByFax twice during his job hunt, once in late October, and a second time early November. Between the 2 faxings, about 6000 companies got his resume, and about 70 called Eric for interviews. Many of the calls were for jobs that did not exactly fit what he was looking for, but he was able to practice his interviewing skills with those companies. Three of the calls were exactly what he was looking for, and 2 made offers after a series of interviews. By December 1st Eric had accepted a position that paid $25,000 more than the job he had previously held.

“It works because the basics of marketing are being applied to the job hunt. In marketing a 1% response rate is good. When this fact is applied to job hunting, it means you’re going to have to get in touch with a large number of potential employers just to get a handful of opportunities. JobsByFax makes this easy, affordable, fast, and even guarantees your success,” states Matthew Saunders, President of JobsByFax.
