We shared a lot of valuable tips in 2014, but the three posts below were the most popular with job seekers. If you didn’t have a chance to review them, be sure to do so before starting the job search process.
Are you using LinkedIn to find your first “real job”? If not, you’re missing out on a valuable opportunity to connect with potential employers. According to LinkedIn, more than 39 million college students and recent graduates have a presence on the site ─ making you the fastest-growing demographic. We offer four valuable tips to optimize your LinkedIn profile, to ensure you get noticed by all the right people. Don’t let your peers pass you up for your dream job!
Social media is everywhere these days ─ including in your job hunt. If you’re having difficulty attracting the attention of employers, it’s time to let your social media presence work for you. PrideStaff North Dallas suggests a variety of innovative ways you can incorporate social media into your job search, to gain a competitive edge on other candidates. Sometimes you just have to get a little savvy to pass up the competition.
Are you sending the same standard resume out for every job you apply to? If so, you’re probably hearing crickets. We wrote this post to help you carefully craft a resume that stands out to hiring managers. Most open positions have dozens and sometimes even hundreds of applicants, so if your resume doesn’t have the necessary “wow factor,” it will be quickly passed over. Don’t sell yourself short by submitting a subpar resume.
