Almost every professional person has a job profile uploaded to the internet because, accept it or not, online world is the most effective way to reach out to millions of recruiters. These recruiters are on the lookout for the best talents and you might be the one they’re looking for. But wait, did they notice you? Or did they just passed by that dull-looking profile which co-incidentally belonged to you?
There are hundreds of jobs that might be of your kind but failing to be noticed might let that lucky opportunity slip from your hands. Here are some simple ways to make you be seen among recruiters at online job portals.
Fill out maximum details
Job portals have a fixed format of CV in their website apart from giving you the option of uploading your CV in word format. It is suggested that you fill out the details and leave no section blank. The more the details you share, the more confidence recruiters develop on you. (More information means higher transparency of the candidate).
Link your profile
It is not always work that companies look at; social interactions also matter a lot for some jobs such as those related to HR and marketing to name a few. This has become possible to verify your social prevalence and behaviour by various social sites. So if you have a Facebook page or a Twitter handle, it is a better idea to link them to your job profile.
Always keep it updated
Job portals have a lot of new CVs coming up on their sites ad all these CVs stack over your CV that has not been updated since quite a long time. Updating your profile not only helps you showcase transparency but also makes your profile jump over these new profiles to make it visible.
That’s right, keywords matter a lot. Many job seekers don’t pay attention when filling out the ‘keywords’ section and this is the biggest blunder they make. Keywords are the words that recruiters enter when looking for a specific skill or job profile and when you don’t put the right keywords, you are far from getting seen.
Recommendations always help, offline or online. Portals such as LinkedIN have recommendation option that allows your colleagues and recruiters to recommend you. Use this tool to make recruiters develop trust on you.
