FOUR WAYS TO GET YOU NOTICED AND HIRED
If you are still waiting to be hired, it is time to think about why. In an ideal world, the best jobs should go to the most qualified candidate, but that is not always the case. Finding the right job can be difficult. In order to find that perfect job, you first have to be noticed. Then, your potential employer must like what they see.
To boost your hire-ability, you need to take a good look at your personal brand. Employers will not only look you up on social media sites, such as Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn, what they see may also affect their hiring decisions. Before going to your next job interview, check out your online presence. You will want to look as good online as you do in person. Make sure your profile reflects your best self and keep it updated. Are you someone, you would want to hire?
SPRUCE UP YOUR LINKEDIN PROFILE:
- Make your LinkedIn profile clear, organized and easy for employers to read. Most hiring managers will review your profile page prior to your interview. They will use it to explore your background, skills and how you present yourself. They may also check other social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to see what you are posting.
- Update your professional photograph in your LinkedIn profile so that you appear to be as polished and professional as you are.
- Adding a line to your professional summary will show you are open to new opportunities and that you are interested in new roles.
- Know your personal brand and own it. Make sure that your online profile and presence are portraying you in your personal light.
