Dr. Donald Sonn: How To Make Yourself a More Desirable Candidate

As part of his role as the head of a recruitment company department designed to find talent for clients, Dr. Donald Sonn often comes across candidates who are almost the complete package in terms of what a company would look for in an employee, but are missing one or two vital elements that can really help them to stand out from the pack. He points out that having any or all of the following on your CV can make you a much more desirable candidate.

Volunteer Work
If you are willing to volunteer your time for a cause that you believe in, you demonstrate to a potential employer that you are a person of conviction who is willing to go above and beyond to work towards what you believe in. This is an extremely desirable trait for employers, as they will always be looking for people who are willing to work as hard as possible on the tasks they are given.

Initiative
If you are applying for a managerial role, or the job offers the potential of advancement into such a role, it is vital to demonstrate how you are capable of showing initiative to help a company advance in its aims. Make sure to talk about what you have done in previous roles to help the companies you have worked for, highlighting important ideas and achievements in the process.

Get The Résumé Right
A lot of people make the mistake of loading their résumé with every piece of information they can possibly think of. However, Dr. Donald Sonn notes that employers will be looking only for what is relevant to the role they are offering, so take a little time to make your résumé as succinct as you can, tailoring it for each job you apply wherever possible.
