Tory's Top 10 Tips to Get Your Resume Noticed

9) Follow up with a call or e-mail to the recruiter responsible for filling the position. Never say, "Did you get my resume?" Instead be ready to reiterate your strong qualifications and interest in the role. You'll have just a brief moment to sell yourself, so rehearse before making the call or sending the e-mail. To reach the right person, cold-call the company and ask an operator to put you through. If that doesn't work, Google the term "recruiter" or "HR director" along with the name of your employer of choice. The results may reveal the name you're trying to find.

10) Stay at the top of their mind. Every recruiter is different, which makes this a challenge. Some say you're welcome to follow up weekly. Others say every other week is enough. And then there are some who'll tell you to never call. Find the right balance so you're politely persistent without crossing over to a pest.
