BUILD A HANDFUL OF CAREER SUCCESS STORIES TO HELP COMMUNICATE YOUR VALUE

As an executive recruiter, I can tell you most candidates do not communicate their career successes in a clear and effective manner. I ask potential candidates to tell me about their greatest career success story and they typically don’t know where to begin. The “success story tool” within WTV will help you create your career STAR stories. Situation, Task, Action and Result. The Result should emphasize measureable results. Use these mini case studies to make crystal clear your experiences and successes as they relate to the job descriptions hiring criteria. Create as many as you wish and they will be stored for you on the WTV site. Send the PDF’s of your stories along with your resume to get more interviews. Hiring managers need to know that you were good at what you do, not just the number of years you have done it.

 

CREATE A SHORT STATEMENT TO COMMUNICATE WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU VALUE YOU CAN BRING – IN THE TIME IT TAKES TO RIDE THE ELEVATOR

Have you ever been asked “so what do you do” and stumbled through your answer? Known traditionally as an Elevator Pitch, this statement should be carefully crafted using appropriate key words that communicate who you are and what you can do. WTV will guide you through this process and even enable your video camera to help you practice or even publish your video pitch out to an on-line portfolio (also part of the WTV tools). With WTV tools, you can make as many pitches as you wish and the system will save them for you. Be ready and be clear with your explanation and delivery!

 

DIFFERENTITATE YOURSELF TO THE HIRING TEAM BY BUILDING A WRITTEN SUMMARY IN PRESENTATION FORMAT ANSWERING WHY YOU SHOULD BE HIRED FOR THE ROLE

Do what thousands of successful job candidates have done to get noticed and nail their interview for offers – use the WTV tools to guide you through the creation of a powerful marketing document that directly correlates your abilities and successes to the hiring specifications. Built by sales and executive search professionals, WTV follows a consultative approach to articulate your value as a job candidate. Just follow the online guide and design your personalized PDF document for excellent preparation, use to guide the conversation during the interview and get your key points across, or as a powerful leave-behind for each of the hiring team members. You will create a “buzz” within the hiring team and stand out among other candidates. This assumes of course that you are in fact a good potential fit for the role. WTV helps you market yourself to be selected among the competition.

 

BUILD A POWERFUL CUSTOMIZED ONLINE PORTFOLIO TO SHOW THE HIRING TEAM SPECIFICALLY WHY YOU ARE THE BEST CANDIDATE AND NAIL THE JOB OFFER!

The WTV online portfolio feature gives you the ability to build a customized web page that clearly communicates who you are and highlights the skills and accomplishments you bring to the table. It also addresses key concerns for hiring managers and recruiters so you can make their job easy in selecting you and advancing your candidacy. If you don’t yet have a specific opportunity in mind, then use it to create a powerful networking and career branding portfolio. After you develop the content, you simply select the tabs to be published on your portfolio. The WTV system will generate your own personal URL which you may use as you wish. You may publish a customized and unique online portfolio for each opportunity you wish to pursue.

Content for your online portfolio will come from tools found in the development center of WinTheView including accomplishment story development, interview presentations and a video elevator pitch. Other content may be entered as needed or uploaded from your existing documents to complete your personalized page. You have the option to select which tabs will be published on the page where your build your online portfolio.
