Top of the Food Chain
An email marketing resume’ structure will vary by employer and role, but it’s always going to have 3 crucial parts:
- An introduction pitching the job responsibilities
- A summary of the candidate’s relevant work experience
- A short profile of the candidate
This is usually followed by a section on education and training, which will include any relevant courses and/or degrees the candidate has obtained. After that comes a list of the candidate’s skills and capabilities – both relevant and desirable. Finally, we have a short section on personality and additional information about the candidate (e.g., LinkedIn profile, Facebook, or Twitter profile).
You’ll usually find that the more senior the role, the more experience and industry-specific knowledge the employer is looking for. For example, you may find that they’re seeking a Senior Manager with 8-10 years of relevant experience, or they may want to hire an experienced Marketing Director with a Bachelors in Advertising.
Finding the Job You Want
Now, let’s assume that you’ve applied for this job and been selected for an interview (you never know – it could happen!). The recruiter will now be in the position of trying to convince you to join the company. Remember, they have to sell you on the opportunity and show you why it’s a great fit for both you and the company. So, it’s important to them that you feel that you’re making the right decision and that you understand what they’re offering. Here’s where your skills and capabilities come in handy.
The recruiter will usually start by talking you through the responsibilities of the job – both the good and the bad. They’ll do this by relating it to your experience and mentioning any potential challenges that come with the role. During this part, you’ll need to actively listen and ask questions if anything is unclear. You should also prepare a list of questions about the job, and make sure you ask them during the interview. This will help you get a sense of how well you’ll fit into the company culture and if the position is a good fit for your career. You should also research the company beforehand – familiarize yourself with their annual reports, press releases, and other publications. This will help you make the right decision and avoid any potential pitfalls. You don’t want to join a company that is going through a rough patch, as these can be very toxic to a business.
The last thing a recruiter wants is to send a candidate to a company that is already experiencing serious issues. As a recruiter, it’s my job to know the pitfalls and give you a sense of whether or not you’re going to be fit in with the company culture. If I think that you’re going to have a hard time adjusting to the job, chances are, the company is going to have a hard time adjusting to you.
In some cases, they may try to play on your emotions by saying things like, “Oh, you’re going to love working here, we have such a fun lifestyle,” etc. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘smoke and mirrors’ strategy’ and it is incredibly misleading. The recruiter is trying to make you feel good about the job – in this case, they’re trying to up-sale you on the opportunity – but what they don’t want you to do is fall for their strategy and think that everything they say is true. Always remember, when it comes to a job interview, you’re talking to an HR representative and not the CEO.
The Interview Process
Now, let’s get to the fun part: the interview process. Recruiters are in the unique position of having to convince you to join a company, while the company is trying to convince you to join their team. This is why interviews for this type of role tend to be fairly informal – you don’t need a job interview to tell you whether or not you’re going to fit in with a company, you just need to look at their website, social media profiles, and any other available information about them. However, as a savvy recruiter, they may try to trick you into thinking that this is an actual interview just to get you to relax and open up — it’s not always like this, but it’s often a grey area.
The Negotiation Process
Once you’ve been on the job for a while and gained some experience, your wages will be determined through a negotiation process. Typically, the company will put up a job offer, and you’ll have some leeway in how much you want to ask for (this is sometimes called’salary negotiation’). Always remember: you’re in control of your own destiny and it’s never easy deciding to change jobs, but in most cases, you’ll be glad you did.
When it comes to your next career move, make sure that you’re prioritizing your interests and making decisions based on what’s best for you. If you’re passionate about digital marketing and want to make the right decision, apply for this email marketing job today!
