Evaluation of Experience

JobPreScreen.com evaluates you resume for experience against the requirements of the job description.

This is important for several reasons:

  • To ascertain suitability for the role.
  • An applicant with relevant experience is more likely to possess the knowledge and skills required for the job, reducing the onboarding time and associated costs.
  • By assessing the depth, breadth, and quality of a candidate‚Äôs experience, employers can make informed decision.
  • Your experience tells a story of your professional evolution.

JobPreScreen.com then provides suggestions for making your experience stand out on your resume. You may have experience that you did not highlight on your resume. These suggestions will help you do that before you apply.

Evaluation of Hard Skills

At JobPreScreen.com, we evaluate your resume for hard skills against the requirements in the job description. The evaluation includes suggestions on how you might strenghten your presentation of hard skills in your resume.

Never lie on your resume. Sometimes your resume does not adequately cover the skills you have acquired in your career by experience, training or education. This evaluation will help you fix that.

Here's a few things to keep in mind about hard skills:

  • Hard skills are specific, teachable abilities or knowledge sets that are easily definable and measurable, such as data analysis, programming, or machine operation.
  • They're often essential prerequisites for performing specific tasks or functions in a job role.
  • When a candidate already possesses the hard skills required for a role, the company can significantly reduce time and resources that would otherwise be spent on training.

While soft skills and potential are undeniably essential, hard skills ensure that a candidate is equipped with the fundamental tools and knowledge to perform their job effectively from day one.

Evaluation of Potential

Your potential is often crucial to a hiring decision. JobPreScreen.com creates an evaluation on your potential in context with the job description and provides suggestions for improvment.

Here are several reasons why it's essential to assess potential:

  • Your ability to adapt to new situations, learn new skills, and take on challenges can be a decisive factor for a recruiter or hiring manager.
  • In an era marked by rapid technological advancements and unpredictable market shifts, your adaptability and potential for growth can be as vital.
  • Potential is indicative of long-term value, including leadership potential or the ability to become a key player in the company's future growth.

Recognizing potential allows organizations to be proactive in their talent management strategy. It captures a candidate's future promise, providing a holistic picture of what they might bring to the table not just immediately, but in the years to come.

Evaluation of Soft Skills

The evaluation performed by JobPreScreen.com includes soft skills. These are often referred to as interpersonal or people skills. They encompass the non-technical attributes that you possess.

Soft skills include:

  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Problem-solving
  • Adaptability
  • Empathy
  • Leadership
  • Time management
  • Creativity
  • Conflict resolution
  • Emotional intelligence

While soft skills are essential, remember that just listing them isn't enough. Wherever possible, provide concrete examples or achievements that demonstrate these skills in action. Such an approach makes your claims more credible and shows potential employers the tangible value you bring to a role.

Evaluation for Cultural Fit

evaluation for cultural fit

JobPreScreen.com evaluates your resume against the job description for cultural fit. Not all job descriptions include much about company culture, but generative AI does infer culture even without it, so your results in this area may vary.

Here's why cultural fit is important:

  • Employees who fit well within a company's culture tend to collaborate more seamlessly with their colleagues.
  • This cohesion leads to improved teamwork, better communication, and a positive work environment. If you resonate with the company's values, work style, and environment you will typically enjoy higher job satisfaction.
  • A good cultural fit can significantly reduce the likelihood of employees leaving the organization in a short period of time.

Before tailoring your resume, research the company's values, mission, and culture. Websites, annual reports, and company-related news articles can offer insights. If a company emphasizes innovation and you've consistently sought out innovative solutions in your roles, mention this in your resume summary.

Evaluation for Red Flags

JobPreScreen.com evaluates your resume for red flags and provides suggestions for improvement.

Here are a few common red flags and suggestions for handling them:

  • Gaps in employment: A clear explanation can be helpful.
  • Frequent job changes: If you are a job hopper, this can be difficult to overcome. Consider offering reasons in your cover letter.
  • Vague descriptions: Be clear and specific about your skills and experience.
  • Overqualification: If the job is a step down, clarify your motivations in your cover letter.
  • Grammatical errors or mispellings: Carefully review and edit. Ask a friend or use a tool like Grammarly.
  • Unprofessional: Don't use an email like partydude91@email or anything else that does not convey professionalism.

Always be genuine in your resume. Present yourself in the best light but do not misrepresent. Doing so can have long-term negative consequences. Highlight your strengths and align with the job requirements, but remain truthful.

Cover Letter Draft

draft cover letter

Included with your resume evaluation for a given job description is a draft cover letter. The letter is written specific to that job description. Be sure to edit the letter to your tastes.

Do not use a generic cover letter that does not address the specifics of a job for which you are applying. It can be spotted easily by the recruiter and hiring manager and may create a negative assessment.

Here are few hints for writing a good cover letter:

  • Make a personal introduction and set the tone.
  • Express why you're interested in the specific role and company, demonstrating genuine enthusiasm.
  • Pinpoint experiences or qualifications from your resume that make you an ideal candidate for the position.
  • Address potential concerns or red flags in your resume with a brief explanation.

A unique and tailored cover letter can make your application memorable and set you apart. It's your chance to tell a story that your resume may not communicate on its own. Crafting it with care can significantly enhance the impression you leave with potential employers.
