Ask Amelia: What are the core criticals for applying for a job?

What are the core criticals for applying for a job? What are some of the things that you’ve seen people do when they apply that really annoys you?

The best advice I can give starts with always sell yourself and tell the truth. Also, make sure you share what results you achieved through measures and statistics that show how you made an impact. I prefer not to see hierarchy listed as an accomplishment, detailed work history without any mention of impact made, or naming all the key stakeholders without the proper context to why it matters.

Thanks to LinkedIn user Stephen Landry for the great question!
