Dental Career Connect tools match dental applicants to employers with open positions doing away with many of the frustrations of both employers and employees when trying to fill a position. While the technology will help you apply for jobs, it is still up to you to get noticed.
Quality dental practices post their open dental positions and receive a list of potential employees in their vicinity, while potential employees see matching open jobs. The potential employee then applies for the job using a streamlined process.
Although the system narrows down the job search for potential employees, you will still need to upload your resume. At this part of the hiring process, your resume needs to shine and make the employer sit up and take notice. Your dental job application needs to sell you as the best candidate.
A resume provides an applicant with a limited space where the stage is yours, so to speak, so take the opportunity to make the employer stop and reread your effort.
When applying for jobs, don’t just send the same resume time after time. The contents need to be tailored to the dental job that is being applied for. This doesn’t mean rewriting the entire resume every time; it means before it is sent, it needs to be fine-tuned so the employer can have no doubt you will tick every box. Ensure that action verbs are used because they have more impact than adjectives.
Everyone goes with paragraphs in resumes, so ditch them and do something unique, such as using keyword lists related to your area of expertise. Match the keywords list describing you to the keywords of the job advertisement for extra impact. Add extra detail about the dental practices that have previously been worked at so that the employer has a visual picture. This helps to create a lasting impression.
The cover letter is the first impression an employer will form regarding you, so make it count. This letter can make or break an application. Apply the same techniques you used in your resume, such as using action words and shaping the letter to the job description but don’t just repeat your resume.
Make sure there is a key fact or point that does not appear in the resume, almost like the icing on the cake. This needs to be key to the job and something the employer will come back to when going through other applications.
There’s a reason for the saying first in first served; sure, an employer will look at all the applicants but getting your application in near the start and making an impression that sticks in the employer’s mind is worth its weight in gold.
