Great Story Angles
"Your Resume Gets 15 Seconds"
15 Seconds! That's the time an interviewer takes to read the average resume. Like a clip that advertises an upcoming movie, you want your resume to only show your highlights.
"You Get Only 90 Seconds to Make A Winning Impression"
90 Seconds! That's how long it takes for an interviewer to decide whether or not they want to consider you during the interview! You must make an immediate positive impression... otherwise you will lose!
"Over 90% of Your Interview is Non-Verbal!"
Over 90% of your interview is non-verbal! Posture, facial expression, eye contact and your appearance are just a few of the many non-verbal factors that can make or break your job interview!
Unless you know what you want... you won't get it! Upwards to 85% of all people jump into their job-hunt without first figuring out what it is that they really want to do. Imagine just jumping into a car and driving without knowing where you want to go. Crazy, but that's exactly what most job hunters do.
