Be straightforward when promoting yourself to a potential employer. Don’t expect someone to piece together all of the information you’ve given them about your skills and experience and try to figure out whether you’re a good fit for the job. When developing your resume or cover letter, be sure to connect all of the dots for the hiring manager and make a clear and convincing and straightforward case for why they should hire you. There are no rewards for subtlety in the job search process.
