How to Succeed in Your Job Search

In 2016, a successful job search is much more complicated than having a good resume! Start here: The Guide to Finding Jobs Online Today to launch your job search.

  • Being professionally and positively visible in social media, particularly LinkedIn, is essential now. Done right, you're next job will find you on LinkedIn. No more job searching!
  • Resumes are still very important and effective (when they contain the right keywords for that job and for you). But they are not very effective without a supporting LinkedIn Profile.
  • Keywords in your resumes and LinkedIn Profile (a.k.a. Personal SEO) are required today to be found by recruiters, regardless of how well qualified you are.
  • Presenting a clear message to the world about who you are and what you do best (a.k.a. Personal Branding) is essential today. Offering vague or generic ideas about what work you can do are useless now because of the requirement for keywords.
  • If your personal online reputation is good, your LinkedIn Profile and resume get you an invitation to a job interview, assuming they support each other and present a clear personal brand.
  • Prepare well to succeed in your job interview, meeting today's high standards, and you could receive a job offer. Read Winning Negotiation Strategies for Your New Job for help.
  • To understand what recruiters want and how they are thinking, read the Guide to Working with Recruiters, written by a recruiter, for insight.
