3 Easy Steps to Maximize your Social Resume
In an age where connecting, personal branding and technology are transforming the recruitment process, job search strategies need to evolve. One of the popular trends in personal branding is creating a social presence. Creating a social presence not only stops on LinkedIn or Facebook but extends to your social resume as well. If you have never thought of, created, or used a social resume, learn how to create one and maximize it with these 3 easy steps.
Step 1: Select the Right Mediums
Making an impact will not work if you are using mediums your target market – potential employers do no use. When selecting mediums for your social resume, make sure you know and use the ones preferred by your potential employers. Some popular ones are LinkedIn, Career Builder and Indeed.
Step 2: Personalize and Brand
There are thousands, wait, millions of candidates out there in the job market. Not only do you need to have your social resume out there, you need to make it unique, different, creative and scream ‘Hire ME!’ When filling out your profile on job boards make sure to add your ‘X’ Factor as prominently as possible.
Step 3: Manage your Social Resume
Like any asset, you need to ensure it is continuing to be an asset and not a liability. Make sure to review your social resume often, update as required and review the type of attention it has been getting. Cease the opportunity to see who has been showing interest and where in the market your skills are in high demand.
Maximizing your social resume can help you make huge strides in your job search. Use it to your advantage.
