4 tactics to be called for a job interview

  • Think beyond the mere traditional curriculum: Especially if you want to become part of a startup or your industry is especially creative, say goodbye to the classics - and increasingly outdated - traditional curriculums in black and white. You can bet on an online portfolio, an interactive CV or an original alternative that goes through the clouds of words, online video games, comics or graphic art.
  • Create a tailored proposal for the company: Even if your resume usually reflects your prowess with companies, what employers really want to know is the concrete value that your presence will bring to your company. Try to answer that question in advance and create a plastic and dynamic presentation tailored to the specific needs of the company, providing your own specific ideas to solve them - for example, in the financial section you can suggest a cost development plan.
  • Put yourself behind the camera: Video archives are a rising format that allows you to introduce yourself, use body language in your favor, show a bit of your personality to employers and above all, synthesize through speech and various graphic elements your worth. You can embed it in your personal blog, in social networks or on YouTube, providing specific ideas for the company and including your personal data or professional social media. It is important that you transmit passion for your sector and advocate for personalized content.
  • Create your own campaign: If you want to exceed all possible expectations, you can create your own campaign by launching your own website in which you can prove that you have no rival for that position, by sending a flipbook by post to capture a project proposal or innovating with totally differentiated proposals. For example, Ed Hamilton turned over his CV on Google Maps in 2010, Philippe Dubost designed an identical website to Amazon in which he sold himself as a Product Manager - including even a buy button! - and Sumukh Mehta got a job in GQ presenting a magazine with 20 pages maquetadas about itself.
