Week Three- Application Tips...and Go Live with your resume!

Here is my favorite (not)application received of the week:
Sender Message:
looking for insurance adjusting work. live in xxxxxx.
That's it in it's entirety!
No name...and the only thing I have changed on this response was to xxxx out the city to protect any identity to the sender.

Those of us posting for jobs on job boards receive many such responses regularly to our job ads. This is a reply to an ad on one site. The Ad clearly states "Do not reply to this AD" and goes on to specify what is needed to submit your name for consideration for the opening?

What kind of message are you sending to an employer by sending such a reply to an ad?

1) They know nothing about you ...not even your name!
2) You have given no contact information other than an email address?
3) How well would this potential employee do at following assignment directions?
4) Should I follow up with this bare information and activate this person for cat assignments(the job posted)...would he be able to take induction center packets of material and be able to follow much more detailed instructions than required to send a resume?
5) What kind of report writer would he be on claim reporting guidelines?

You often don't get a second chance to make a first impression!
Make it a fantastic one!.......Speaking of this.....

Have you seen the new LIVE resumes where you can introduce yourself on a video-info-mercial via a link on your cover email or cover letter so the employer can visually see how professional you come across? Talk about standing out in a crowd! These are awesome new tools for going above and beyond the average candidate..or as an employer drawing interest to your firm ..imagine the surprise when they enter your website and get to know YOU..not just a routine website!
