Looking For A Job? Apply As Directed!


All job ads include the potential employer’s preferred method for you to apply for the available position.  Some prefer a resume by email, others still prefer fax, while others request you apply via the company’s website.  Whatever the stated method, you should apply as directed in the job ad.  Applicants who call a recruiter when a job ad requests another method do not necessarily appear as go-getters who “make things happen”.  They can actually appear disrespectful, unprofessional, and unwilling or incapable of following instructions.

When applying for a job, thinking outside the box doesn’t always help, however you can never go wrong when you apply as directed.
