Culture Fit More Important Than Ever in Resumes, Cover Letters, and More


BrainDayReport.jpg This post is the first in a series of posts excerpted from the white paper, Findings of 2010 Global Career Brainstorming Day: Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Careers. The brainstorming day was held in December 2010 by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium, publishers of the white paper.
As recruiters and hiring managers work tirelessly to identify the right candidates for their organizations, one of the most important criteria they use today is culture fit. They want to know if a job-seeker will perform well within their company, within their management structure, within their communications infrastructure, and so on.
Thus, your resume, cover letter, interview responses, and other job-search communications must convey “a strong message of culture fit.”
