How to Succeed in Your Job Search

Today, a successful job search is more complicated than having a good resume! You MUST use the right keywords for you in your resumes and LinkedIn Profile (a.k.a. Personal SEO) to be found by recruiters, regardless of how well qualified you are.

Being professionally and positively visible in social media, particularly LinkedIn, is essential now. Resumes are still very important and effective (when they contain the right keywords for that job and for you).

If your personal online reputation is good, your LinkedIn Profile and resume get you in the door for the job interview. Prepare well, meeting today's high standards, and you might receive a job offer. To understand what recruiters want and how they are thinking, read the Guide to Working with Recruiters, written by a recruiter, for insight.
