How to Help Jobs Find You
It’s easy to find a plethora of job openings posted online to submit applications for. What’s challenging is getting certain of those job opportunities to find you amongst a very competitive global pool of candidates. To resolve at least some of the challenges, here are 3 ways to help jobs and the recruiters posting them to find you:
- Enable LinkedIn to share with recruiters that you’re open to new opportunities. If you’re currently employed and don’t want to tip off your boss or colleagues that you’re seeking something new, LinkedIn has you covered by taking great measures to NOT show your current company that you’re open.
- Share your full profile with the job poster on LinkedIn when you’re taken off of LinkedIn to submit an application. This greatly increases your chance to be viewed by whoever posted the job opportunity. While you’re at it, you might as well send a brief InMail to the job poster and get their attention more expediently. Your message should basically read as a one-paragraph cover letter (don’t forget to attach a copy of your resume).
