Work with your recruiter and follow these guidelines to develop a profile that demonstrates to hiring managers you are the right fit.

Introduce yourself using a persuasive value proposition.
Demonstrate that you will provide the solution to solve the hiring manager’s challenges. This overarching statement should drive the employer to pick up the phone to speak with you.

Pull three to five relevant examples from a master list, specific to the role you are applying for.

Describe your position within the company.
