5 Tips to Help Your Job Application Stand Out

As a campus recruiter, students are often asking what they can do to stand out among the sea of applicants. While nothing is foolproof, here are 5 tips that will improve your chances of landing an interview with a prospective employer:

  1. Complete the full application. Due to the need to track applicants in two systems (both the school’s career site AND the company’s applicant tracking system), you’ll often need to complete two applications for one job. The application may also call for a cover letter, letter of reference, or completion of an online assessment. Oftentimes if you don’t complete all steps, you’re automatically out of the running! Completing every step demonstrates that you’re detail-oriented and that you really want it.
  2. Know your audience. Tailoring your resume and any other documents to the company, industry, or role you’re applying for shows that you’re serious! If you’re blanket-applying to many different organizations, create a template for each industry you’re applying for and the fill in the blanks. Warning: don’t forget to swap out the generic “Insert Company Name” for the actual company you are applying for.
  3. Keep it short, sweet, and scannable. Seeing a two-page (or sometimes three!) resume from a college junior is frustrating. While I know that you only want to show your success over time, recruiters often have thousands of resumes in their queue. My recommendation when it comes to your resume is to demonstrate key deliverables you completed and how you contributed to the team or organization. You also need to ensure that your resume is easy to scan through for the highlights. If you’re applying for a marketing role, highlight marketing-specific tasks or roles you’ve had in the past. And it’s okay if you don’t have the experience yet – you can use a cover letter to demonstrate how your skill set will translate into the role you’re applying for!
  4. Show that you can deliver. Metrics are a huge deal these days, and your resume should use metrics to show your success and impact. While it may be easier to do for some experiences than others, you know more than you think you do.  For example, if you were a camp counselor for 5 years, use metrics to demonstrate your loyalty to the camp and how you kept your campers coming back year after year.
  5. Lastly: the devil is in the details. I learned this from the CEO of the first company I worked for, and it’s never truer than in the application phase. I’ve seen candidates send in cover letters with the wrong company and resumes with the wrong phone number or no email address. To avoid this, have as many people as you can review your resume. You can also print it out and read it aloud, line by line, to catch errors (trust me, it works). Also ensure that the attachments you’re uploading online aren’t labeled with another company’s name; it’s a dead giveaway that you’re not truly interested in a company. It also makes it easier for recruiters if you clearly title each document you submit. An example of this is titling a document with your first and last name, followed by the item description (i.e., “John Smith_Resume.pdf”).

Employer Perspectives: Nan Fisher Entertainment

A chat with Taylor A. Hopkins, NYU: Tisch School of the Arts Class of 2013, BFA Dramatic Writing about his experiences at Nan Fisher Entertainment

How would you describe the role of a Production Intern?

The job description of a Production Intern depends a lot on where and for whom you are working. If you are interning for a large production company, studio, or producer, your job will probably consist of a lot of “grunt” work, i.e. filing, getting coffee, answering phones, and doing pretty much anything that the producer and your other superiors may need. It is rare that you would get a chance to do any work directly on projects or initiatives, although you would be in the environment and get to see the inner workings of a large production.

What are some responsibilities of an intern at Nan Fisher Entertainment?

Myself and the other interns have had the chance to work hands-on on multiple projects. We’ve been involved in every step of the development, pre-production, and production process, from helping conceptualize ideas, to contacting investors, to creating marketing plans and social media campaigns. We do anything and everything needed in order to get a production on its feet, which is why I have learned so much being here.

What is it like working at Nan Fisher Entertainment?

It’s been such an incredible experience! The work environment is open and comfortable, where everyone has a voice and gets a chance to give their input and express their opinions. We work as a team, where everyone’s voice is taken into consideration and everyone’s strengths are valued. If someone doesn’t know a whole lot coming into the job, everyone is ready to help and bring him or her up to speed. It’s a learning experience for everyone, and we’re constantly getting better at what we’re doing.

What are you working on now at Nan Fisher Entertainment?

The America’s Amazing Teens™ Project is an online competition that will identify, honor and mentor exceptional teens whose discoveries will change the world– think “Shark Tank” meets “American Idol” for the best and brightest teens in America.
 We are one of the first online competitions that will provide a platform for young scientists, researchers, web developers, inventors, and entrepreneurs to help share their ideas with the world. We are also in the beginning stages of a few other projects, which will all be picking up in 2014.

We are always looking for new interns and fresh ideas! If you’re interested in joining our team at Nan Fisher Entertainment, check out our job postings in NYU Wasserman’s CareerNet by searching for:

A Peek Inside Mashable

David Chen, a first-year Film and Physics student, attended last week’s Welcome Week site visit to Mashable. Below is his account of the visit and the “mashed” tech and journalism outlet that is “the next evolution of tech media”:

Everybody knows The New York Times. It is a Goliath of an organization – with almost 8,000 employees producing approx. 900,000 issues a day that are consumed by many Americans: it is a news force that only a few can rival.

But many also know Mashable. In fact, they are ‘liked’ by 3.4 million Facebook and Google Plus users, followed by almost 3.5 million Twitter users, and attract countless views on their homepage everyday from all over the world. Using the connectivity and networking of the Internet, Mashable has grown into an influential ‘frontpage’ of the news world. In just eight years, it has attracted virtually 8 times the readership of the NYT. But compared to the Times, Mashable is a diminutive David; its total employment numbers just 115.

As a student interested in journalism and multimedia, I jumped at the opportunity to tour its headquarters organized by the staff at The Wasserman Center.

How does such a small company amass such an incredible readership? What makes Mashable different and why does it work?

Stepping into the Mashable headquarters on Park Avenue, I immediately sensed something was very wrong. The cutest dog I’ve ever seen was rolling on the carpeted floor playing with its kibbles, begging for belly rubs. Blue jeans, attractive hairstyles, and Boho fashion dotted the room. No cubicles. Macs and PCs living in coexistence. This office has a personality.

Kamilla greeted our group at the door. Her immediate hospitality, candid answers, and frequent reference and praise to her colleagues created an aura that Mashable wasn’t a company composed of individual entities, but an eccentric family dedicated to constantly evolve the company into something greater. Its collective and collaborative infrastructure allows an open forum for fresh ideas to be discussed, suggested by both the most senior employee to the greenest intern. Mashable is company where the person sitting next to you is not just a co-worker, but a friend who admires your work and values your contributions.

This unique work model breaks from the traditional bureaucracy of large news companies where hierarchy and obedience is imperative. Its open nature combined with its extensive online presence allows for an immediate, fast, and reactive handle over various news sources – it’s maneuverable. While Mashable continues to grow at an exponential pace, far larger corporate media companies are scrambling to replace the dying print form with a fresh online presence, copying many techniques that close knit startups, such as Mashable, have pioneered. Already it seems that Mashable is the next evolution of news media.
