Are there things that you can do to ensure that you will get a call back from a potential employer. What types of things would you definitely put on your resume or application.

My opinion here is that it is both simple and hard.  Simple in that there are no tricks you can play - you just need to focus on a well written and presented resume which is as relevant as possible to the position you are applying - and hard coz there is nothing clever you can do to get the resume noticed.

I agree with Seb, trying to get an employee to call you for an interview can be very tricky.  My suggestion is to take the time to create a very professional resume.  Have family and friends look it over.  You may even want to attend career workshops.  Sometimes libraries or high schools offer worshops for the general public in the evening.  Check with your local high schools and libraries to find out more details.

Before or after the interview? Smiley I'm joking. Yes, there are such ways. You can do some things in order to ensure yourself a feed back. Starting with handing him a well written resume and a strong motivational letter...or a cover letter. Then, mesmerizing him during the interview. Then, a thank you note after the interview (also known as follow-up).
I can get into details and speak to you about keywords which are really really important both in resumes and cover letters. But this can take a while. Wink
