How To Get a Job Fast In Atlanta

So, I live in Atlanta, Georgia right now and everyday I come across somebody who is new to the city. As a public speaker and published author I speak to a lot of people on a daily basis. Most of them tell me they’ve been here in Atlanta for anywhere from 3 days to 3 months. Most people move here because they’ve heard there’s opportunity here in Atlanta. Maybe they’ve seen an episode of the The Real Housewives of Atlanta or Married to Medicine and they want to come and get in on some of the wealth energy that surrounds the city.

Ok, nothing wrong with wanting to bask in the glow of new money but in the A-T-L you gotta know what you’re doing if you want to get hired. You gotta know someone or you gotta be one hell-of-a-talented person if you’re looking to get hired fast around these parts. Miss Atlanta ain’t the city you just “take by storm” nah. Don’t get me wrong there is money here and there is opportunity but you’ve got to know how to tap into it!

First and foremost, understand that Atlanta is a talented and well educated city so come correct or don’t come. I’m baffled by the number of ridiculous resumes that cross my desk. As a business owner and entrepreneur I am inundated with cover letters and resumes and 95% of them look like crap and are a snore to read. People ask me why it takes so long to get called back after submitting a resume. I can’t speak for other employers but I’ll tell you this, I get so tired of wading through these so called resumes that are nothing more than a bunch of action words on paper, the thought of bringing one of you in for an interview is sickening. I mean, really? The sad part is most of these applicants actually went to University! Did they NOT teach you all how to write a resume or how to sell yourselves to potential employers? Well since they obviously didn’t I guess I’ll do it. For the sake of all employers out there, I’ll give you some basic tips on writing a resume that doesn’t put recruiters to sleep.

Suggestion number one: Write a list of your ACTUAL SKILLS. Not the action words that you think employers want to hear, no. Actual skills like software programs you’re proficient at or industry standard practices and procedures. For example; here is a portion of my personal resume from when I was working as a property manager.

2010-2013                             C.S. Asset Management, L.L.C.                                       Clarkston, GA.

Property Manager               single & multi-family                                                      Sub-contractor (FDIC)

Extensive experience resurrecting foreclosed, under-managed, underperforming properties to desirable residences & profit centers. Served as Technology Administrator for all systems at 7 sites including; rent roll, banking, phone and all computer hardware and software (OneSite, etc.) systems for 7 of 16 properties.

  • Successfully negotiated payment dispute with HUD/Section 8 resulting in a recovery of $14,400 in rent payment arrears.
  • Rehabilitation and lease up projects exceeded 100% quarterly income and occupancy goals achieving 207% ROI per unit over 2 years.
  • Responsible for outsourcing and IT staffing resulted in a $120,000 bottom line savings over 3 years.
  • Vendor management and negotiation skills resulted in a total savings of $31,000.00 over 3 years.
  • Reduction of costs of over $200,000 in court, attorney’s fees and vacancy costs.
  • Creation of new revenue streams that brought in over $3.6 million over 3 years
  • Consistent identification, growth and mentoring of staff resulting in 86% being awarded the companies Excellence Award and 5 received perfect scores of 30 out of 30 on secret shopper assessment (20% over company average)

Notice how I’ve told the reader what I’ve accomplished. They can judge for themselves if, based on the descriptions, I’m hardworking and determined. First of all you might think you’re hardworking but someone else may think you’re a lazy bum with no work ethic. So don’t just say it, prove it. As an employer when I’m reading your resumes I’m wondering, “what did this candidate do for their previous employer and how can they duplicate or top that at my company?”

The other thing is… please, for the love of money, stop putting all those little stars and stripes all over your resume. Don’t submit “fluffy” resumes. No amount of special characters and widgets will make up for lack of experience or education so stop fooling yourselves. Employers don’t want pretty resumes. They want simple, easy to read, straight to the point, one page (if you can pull it off) resumes that answer the question, what have you done and how will you benefit my organization.

Suggestion number two: Use a resume builder program. My favorite one is Live Career. <–Click on it. It’s great! It offers several different formats and will help you to resist the urge to fluff your resume. Plus they offer resume styles for different circumstances. Like if you have gaps in work history or you’re transitioning from the Military or even if you’re changing career fields, there’s a format for that and Live Career has got it! No seriously, use them. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help, especially when it comes to gettin’ them coins, hunni!

Suggestion number three: Please put a working phone number as your contact information for potential employers to reach you by. I think that’s self explanatory. I’ll also add, be in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed when you return a call from a potential employer. Have a pen and piece of paper handy and remain calm while on the call.

Suggestion number four: Make the content of your resume relevant to the job for which you’re applying. Does this mean you might need a different resume for each job that you’re interested in? Yep! That’s exactly what it means. If you read a job ad and there are words in the ad that mean the same thing that’s in your resume but the terminology you used is different, use their terminology. Many companies use robots to crawl your resume for keywords and some recruiters simply don’t know that those different terminologies mean the same thing. So help ya-self out and make it easy by using the employers preferred terminology, ok? OK!
