Job Search Tips: 5 Tips To Digitalize Your Job Search

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:

Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be.” - Jack Welch

I just read that the last company to manufacture typewriters just announced they are ending production.

"Typewriters? What's that you may ask (ancient history).

In one way, it is a little sad for those of us that grew up in the days of pre-computer typing days but in another way it is just another step in leaving the past behind. For those of you fortunate enough to never have had to type your resume on a typewriter, you don't realize how difficult and manual job hunting was in the pre-digital days.

Job Search Tips: Get A Job By Targeting The Hiring Manager

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

In the past, candidates could self-submit their resume to job postings, post a resume on a job board or just wait for the phone to ring. A small percentage would actually try to network their way into a new job -- which is the single best way to land a new gig. Well here are some tips for you to be able to target hiring managers and therefore allow you to network and even send a resume to them directly. My goal is to help you locate key Human Resource professionals, recruiters and hiring managers at targeted companies within your industry, and at third-party recruiting firms. You want to be able to find leads to emerging opportunities and place your resume with your best prospects, and one of the only ways to do so is to have the hiring manager's contact information to begin self-targeted resume submissions, so you can increase visibility and enhance chances of obtaining employment.

4 Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your LinkedIn Profile

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:

LinkedIn is one of the best online resources for professionals looking to network with other professionals, find employment, or be discovered by hiring managers.  If optimized, LinkedIn could ensure you don’t spend too much time unemployed since you’re likely to attract the best of the best in the hiring world.

Interested in improving your profile?  Here are just a few things you could do the next time you’re signed in that could help strengthen your page:

Customize your profile URL: This may not seem like a big deal, but personalizing your LinkedIn URL (e.g., www.linkedin.com/in/johndoe) lends to your credibility and strengthens your brand.  It also makes you easier to find on the site, especially if recruiters want to conduct a quick search and are hoping that typing your name in the URL will do the trick.  What do you have to lose?  The quick change could make a world of difference.

Link to your other Web sites: In order to make the most of your profile and build your brand, it’s important to add links that point to your other professional ventures.  Whether you’re linking to a blog, your Twitter page, or your professional Web site (www.johndoe.com), it’s important to show visitors that you’re more of a dynamic prospect than what is seen on your LinkedIn page.

Job Search Tips: Are Niche Job Boards For You?

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

You may have pondered the idea of jumping onto a niche job board to conduct your searches but wonder if it’s good for you.  While everyone is definitely different in their approach to conducting a job search, when comparing the niche job board to larger boards that spread across all industries, the answer to whether it’s good for you is “Yes!”

If you want more details as to why the niche job board is a good option for just about every job seeker, here are some reasons to consider:

Sometimes Large Job Boards Are Too Broad

While it is undoubtedly beneficial to use numerous tools available to you while job seeking, you might notice that some tools are not as helpful as others.  In the case of the larger job boards that cover all industries, you may have a difficult time being found by recruiters who have to sort through many applicants.

By using a niche job board, you have the opportunity to look for jobs and be exposed to recruiters in a smaller environment.  You know for sure that the jobs you’re looking for are directly related to your profession, and recruiters can find you more easily because the number of seekers who have posted resumes is fewer.

Resume Tips: Is Your Resume Too Unconventional?

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:
 

As you work to write an amazing resume, you want to make it unique enough to have it stand out from the others that will be sitting in the same stack.  But how far is too far when trying to make yours different?  Is it possible to be too unconventional in resume writing?  Here are some signs that you may be pushing the envelope more than managers would like.

You’ve Created a Searchable Resume

Some job seekers are quite skilled at developing online resumes that work like impressive Web sites.  They’re configurable and searchable, allowing managers to type in keywords within the resume to locate the skills they hope the job seeker will possess.

The candidate with a variety of skills and professional backgrounds may be tempted to take this route if he or she doesn’t know how to target his or her resume to one specific profession.  But a targeted resume is exactly what hiring managers are looking for.

Jobs May Appear Closer Than They Actually Are

The following post is courtesy of the Recruiting Blogswap:

"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." - Bill Cosby

How many times have you felt as if you were so close to getting a job and then it just doesn't happen?

Sometimes it's a recruiter leading you on, sometimes you go on a few interviews and then hear nothing and sometimes you get caught in the "only applying online" syndrome.

And then there is the very frustrating situation where you get all the way to the finish line, only to get a lousy offer.
