One of the most difficult tasks when trying to land a dream job is convincing the hiring manager that you are the right person for the job. With more people searching for employment, fewer available positions, and a limited hiring budget, these individuals need to make every job placement count.
Lead with your best characteristics and quantify your achievements when the hiring manager asks you to describe yourself. Unseemly pictures on Facebook or embarrassing posts on social networking sites should be removed whenever possible. Prepare for any questions the hiring manager may ask, and practice your interview skills before meeting with them.
The hiring manager will see you as a responsible job candidate if you come to the interview well prepared and enthusiastic. When asked, give the hiring manager correct contact information for several solid references, including past employers, mentors, and others familiar with your skills and experience. Explain to the interviewer how you can help with the challenges specific to the position you want in order to highlight your own achievements and work ethic. If the hiring manager is impressed with your credentials and believes in you, they will be more likely to recommend you for the job and also be willing to negotiate better benefits for you.

How do you get in front of hiring managers?

- Referred to.
The goal of your resume is to highlight your accomplishments and achievements, and get you in front of the person responsible for hiring.
It is time that people who are looking for employment go directly to the source (Hiring Managers and Recruiters) as opposed to throwing their resume in the black holes called applicant tracking systems. Send your resume and Pain Letter to the person responsible for hiring once you connect with them. Most hiring managers won’t mind qualified candidates contacting them in reference to an open position, so my answer is based on the idea that some people may not like it. The key is to make sure that your approach is professional and the marketing materials you send them highlight what you can bring to their organization.
Many qualified applicants are sent to a reject file due to minor technicalities because these computers aren’t very smart. Most hiring managers try to fill an open position with internal applicants and employee referrals. Cash incentives are offered to current employers to refer qualified candidates for positions. Referred from a current or past employee is the best way to get your resume in front of the person responsible for hiring.
If they don’t respond to your resume and pain letter, you can move to the next company on the list. If you need assistance with getting your resume in front of the hiring manager after reading this article, please send me a private message.
Is it OK to contact hiring manager directly?
If the hiring manager conducted an interview with you, you should contact that manager. It’s not appropriate to reach out to a hiring manager at a company if you interview with someone at a staffing firm. It could backfire if you work around a staffing company.
What do you put in a message to the hiring manager?
