Numerous clients say they have never needed a resume, let alone a professionally written one. They obtained their first job through a contact or they were recruited directly out of school and they advanced through job positions ever since. Today’s job market is becoming increasingly competitive and expanding one’s job search is becoming a top priority. One form of expansion means considering social networking as a potential medium for exploring opportunities.
You are already probably a member of a social networking site like MySpace or Facebook. Even the least experienced computer users take advantage of these kinds of media to keep in touch with family, friends who have moved away, old classmates or find new connections. Why not exploit the power of social networking to your advantage and use it to open up new job offers, make new connections and build an online resume?
For me, this is the heart of the resume writing process – we aren’t just putting facts and figures, phrases and sentences, timelines and contact info together in a document! We are telling a story in such a way as to capture someone’s attention. We want to tell a story that is interesting, clear, descriptive, as well as comprehensive with all of the necessary facts and figures.
Sites like LinkedIn In allow you to connect with former and current colleagues, professionals you have done business with and even discover new clients. You have the option to join professional groups that could open new job opportunities. You can acquire recommendations that speak volumes about your skills, abilities, and achievements. You can even request introductions through existing contacts to individuals who work for companies or in fields of interest to you. In short, being a member of one of these websites can create opportunities for you that traditional networking simply does not offer.
Having a professional networking profile created or tweaked by a certified resume writer guarantees that you will have a web presence that tells your potential employer how much value you offer and offers a convenient format for their reference.
Want to know how professional networking works for you?
It provides employers a result you want them to see if they search for you online. It offers you connections – the more, the better. It opens doors that would remain closed if you did not have a LinkedIn profile. Statistics show that people with more than twenty connections on LinkedIn are thirty-four times more likely to be approached with a job opportunity than people with less than five. If you are going to use it, you need to maximize its value.
Tips to Follow:
Be sure that your profile aligns with your resume! You do not want there to be any discrepancies.
Focus on your headline and summary to describe your main goals since they are the first thing a viewer will notice.
Don not forget to add the new sections for projects, patents, honors, and publications among other things to enhance your profile.
