5 ways to be an exceptional employee

be exceptionalIs there a way to become that employee your boss can’t possibly live without? Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you might be an irreplaceable employee.

Are you willing to go the extra mile? Employers expect you to do your job, but are you the type of person that goes over and above? Employers love when someone picks up the slack where needed, pitches in when necessary, and stays late if required.

Are you flexible? An adaptable employee is willing to adjust when companies make changes. They don’t insist on doing things their old fashioned way. Employers know they can count on them to make adjustments when necessary and keep the company moving forward.

Are you progressive? Offer creative new ideas to save the company money and/or time. Be sure to promote the company to others so it gains profits and remains steadfast.

Are you developing new skills? An employee that learns new skills and applies them to their job is an asset to a company. By staying current in your industry, you improve your performance and become invaluable to those you work for.

Are you a problem solver? A company does not have much use for an employee that causes problems. But, an employee that is adept at solving problems – well now that’s someone an employer wouldn’t want to lose.

Although this list is not all inclusive and doesn’t determine who will earn or keep their position, these tips can help you become an invaluable and possibly irreplaceable employee. Be sure to examine your work ethic and how you operate within your organization. If you are lacking in any of these areas, polish up and improve your performance.

What a professional resume writer can do for you.

mck logo2In today’s job market, a number of factors affect whether an applicant is hired or not. Anywhere from using the proper key words in a resume to wearing the right outfit for an interview can determine whether or not you are considered for a job. In this economy, it is vital that you pay attention to the details. So, while creating a resume might seem a fairly easy task, perfecting it may require hiring a professional.

Always think of your resume as being a first impression of the professional you – since most often it is what a company will see before you land an interview. A professional resume writer will know what language businesses are looking for and how to ensure all your skills and job experiences are effectively communicated. That’s their job.

Technically, a resume writer falls under the category of “ghost writer”. Hiring professionals need never know that you chose to have someone help you craft your resume. But, in so doing, you may increase your chances of getting noticed by HR professionals and hiring managers and ultimately move up in your targeted career sector.

Just as you would probably hire an electrician to rewire your home or a plumber to fix a leaky faucet, hiring a resume writer means having a skilled professional help you create a marketing document that best represents you.

I welcome the opportunity to help you improve your chances of finding the perfect job. Check out my services page to see just what MCK Resume Service can do for you and your career.
