By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter
This #short highlights a classic mistake job hunters make–thinking a job description or job ad is accurate.

Interested in a Job with the US Government? You’ll Need a Federal Resume

Do you think an ad or job description you’ve seen is accurate and what it is that they’re really looking for? -Job descriptions are at best 80 percent accurate. Typically, they’re some institutional document used to fill previous positions like this one, and are rarely updated.

You need to find out about the position early in the interview or early in the screening call to understand what it is they’re really looking for. Otherwise, you could wind up barking up the wrong tree and never know it.
