CompleteMarkets
The purpose of this blog is to help guide those who struggle to find employment in the Insurance and Financial Services industry. Every week I will post blogs to help job seekers through the hiring process. The blog posts will focus on; resume building, what words you should and shouldn't use on resumes, staying active in the job search, how to be successful on CompleteMarkets and get in front of recruiters and employers, providing relevant information regarding employment etc. It is my goal to take you from being a job seeker to an employed insurance professional.
Struggling to Find a Job

As a single parent, I know the importance of finding a job that will support not only a healthy work/life balance but also pay the bills at the end of the day. I am sure you have a family member, friend or know someone that is struggling to find employment.

 We all understand that the job market is cluttered. However, do you know what the average amount of resumes recruiters and employers are flooded with on a daily basis? According to Jacquelyn Smith of Forbes.com, the average number of people to apply for a job is 118; with only 21% actually receiving an interview.

 It’s no surprise that job listing sites contain over hundreds of thousands of resumes; which may or may not be industry specific. Clusters of that size create issues for recruiters and employers, especially those in the insurance industry. Does it now make sense why it sometimes takes months to hear back from potential employers?

 How do you make your resume stand out from the others? How do you search for a job? The first step is for you to understand how to find the right job. This doesn’t mean your dream job, but the right job that matches your skills, location, desired salary and position. This is not easy, especially those in the insurance industry. Most jobs boards are designed to blanket the job market so the filters used for jobs searches often do not apply to you. Don’t panic…CompleteMarkets has a jobs board that is EXCLUSIVE to the insurance and financial services industry. We have tailored the search tools and the job postings because we know exactly what you are looking for when it comes to jobs. You can find the job category that fits your skills in the perfect salary range and right location all in one step.
