Best Practices for Working with SMEs
Working with subject matter experts (SMEs) – we have all done it and it’s a necessary part of the instructional design process. But what about when you’re dropped into a project with SMEs with whom you have never worked before? We asked some of our consultants and clients to share their best practices for maximizing the relationship with a SME.
Obtaining Professional Certifications and Joining Professional Associations
Professional certifications demonstrate a dedication to your field and to the clients you serve. With certifications you will acquire additional knowledge, be able to incorporate new methodologies and technologies in your work, and gain credibility in a specific field or subject.
Creating a Strong Cover Letter
When developing your cover letter, it is vital to demonstrate how qualified you are for the job. An easy and effective way to illustrate your qualifications to a recruiter is the “T Cover Letter.”
Creating a Job-Specific Resume
Each resume that you submit should be targeted to the specific project you want to land. Recruiters scan resumes quickly to see if they contain the experience required for a project. If your relevant experience is not clear on your resume or not related to the project at hand, you may not be contacted.
