Speaker Bio & Topics
Job searches can be shortened from months to just weeks or even days by positioning yourself to be easily seen online through a few simple steps:
1)Develop your own career brand that takes advantage of the specific key words an employer or recruiter might be using when searching online to find an applicant for the job you want.
2)Post your resume (using those same keywords) online on a custom website or blog, and then share the URL link on other sites across the Internet, through blogs, forums, as well as social media sites.
3)Use the social networking site LinkedIn to strengthen and build out your brand (again, using strategic key words) by building more than 500 connections with others in your desired industry, guaranteeing you access to an exponentially growing list of key influencers who will help you get seen online.
Remember that in the same way you might use online search engines like Google to help find a restaurant that's in your neighborhood, and within your budget, employers are using the Internet to help find the right people with the right skills to meet their needs. They are not physically going through a pile of resumes!
It’s through the use of these SEO techniques and social networking, that my followers and clients that implement my job search methodology are positioning themselves to be found online by potential employers, building important industry connections and increasing the likelihood of landing the most appropriate interviews. I've had success in raising my clients potential of being called for an interview by 80% with a several being hired within a few weeks because their résumé was found in an online or applicant database search.
