In these times we live in, where the market is more competitive than ever if you want to succeed in a job search, you need to stand out. Here are five tips that will help you.
The key in the process of getting a new job is to optimize your resources to make the most out of it, to keep track of all the information you gather, and to stand out from the rest of the applicants.
1 - Glassdoor
The app's search filter scans through millions of listings on the site to find potential jobs for you based on location, salary, company size, and job title. Find something you like? You can apply directly from the device. Those are standard features in job apps, but Glassdoor goes further than many in helping you understand a company that has an opening that interests you.
2 - LinkedIn Resume Builder
LinkedIn has a feature that allows you to create and update your resume without spending hours and hours doing so. You just load or update the information and export the file. Simple as that.
3 - Check your resume score
Use Resunate, web-based software that will allow you to check how your resume is scoring in a particular job search. This is extremely useful to avoid the uncertainty of not knowing if a real person actually saw your CV.
4 - Create a short link to your LinkedIn Profile
When you export your resume, you’ll notice that the link to your profile is long and full of letters and numbers that make no sense. This doesn’t look professional, so remember to change the URL on the app. You can determine your profile URL and keep it clear for your potential employers.
5 - Track your reputation
Social Mention is an app that allows you to track what’s being said about you on social media. While you are looking for a job, you need to make sure that your reputation is clear.
