What if I told you there is a way to stand out and get hired out of the thousands of applicants with practically no experience? Interested?
We all know how hard it is to get a job nowadays. It seems that for every opening there is bloodshed. Usually the guy with bunch of experience gets the job. So how is the fresh graduate with practically nothing to put on the CV to get the interview, let alone job?
Let me tell you how!
The concept of competitive advantage according to Wikipedia describes “attributes that allow an organization to outperform its competitors”. It is usually created or obtained, and it is hard to be copied.
Although a business term, it can easily be applied on all aspects of life.
While there are many articles that tackle the topic on how to gain that competitive advantage, most of them suggest tweaking your CV to be visually appealing, or using power talk and persuasive body language to get hired. While not bad advices per se, do you really think a pretty font and sitting up straight will do the job? And more importantly do those tricks really help you gain competitive advantage? I mean, after all anybody can copy that.
What you put on the CV matters. What you can get to the table matters. As a fresh graduate only thing you can put on your CV, or bring to the table is what and where you studied. So the university where you got your marketing degree has to be the source of your competitive advantage.
Quite simple. Right?
