As we all collectively wave goodbye to long year that was 2020, many still feel uncertain about what the job market has install for us. Here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative on how to prepare your 2021 job search efforts.
Highlight Your Achievements On Your Resume
Under each role you have listed on your resume, be sure to outline any notable achievements which clearly summaries your results and accomplishments. This will help your resume to stand out from the crowd and preparing multiple copies (depending on the job you apply for), will help customise your application.
Clean Up Your Social Media Profiles
Employers and recruiters will often take a look at candidates social media presence. If there is something on your social media that you wouldn’t want a future employer to see it would be a good time to remove it. In addition to this, having a professional profile picture will help tidy things up. Especially update your LinkedIn profile, making sure your career history is current, any inconsistencies between your LinkedIn and resume are rectified and have a clear and well-written summary displayed.
Have Referees Ready To Go
There is nothing worse than coming towards the conclusion of an application process and having things drag out even further or even fall through because you don’t have referee’s available. Take time to determine who your references will be. Contact them in advance to see if they are willing to be your referee. Have more than two up your sleeve in case some fall-through.
Set up job alerts for the industry and job roles you are seeking to apply for on Seek, Indeed, LinkedIn, recruitment agency job boards, etc. This means you will be able to apply quickly for the roles you are most passionate about. Be sure to have these alerts set up on your phone and desktop so you don’t miss a beat.
