  • Opening Intro -

    Job hunting and techniques used in landing a job have changed in recent times.

    Thanks to technological advancements and emerging networks, we now have platforms to make career-defining decisions with minimum fuss.

-------------------------------------

In spite of this advantage, a good number of us are still overwhelmed by the prospect of choosing the right career path and landing our dream job.

Unlike in recent past, job seekers now have access to vital intel through several social media channels, including Glassdoor and LinkedIn. Through these channels, they are able to do background checks on companies they intend to work for and also make contact with employees of such companies.

Finding the right job and standing out in a tough market like we currently have can be a daunting task. Well, the good news is that there are new tools and systems you can use to make finding your dream a lot easier.

Here are some tips and useful tools to help you get a head start using today’s technology.

1. Create the right online reputation with SocialMention

While searching for your first job, it is important that you know exactly what is being said about you online. SocialMention helps you monitor your online reputation and also provide you with the platform to polish it up if there is a need to do so.

2. Create a twitter job list

Twitter remains a grossly untapped resource by most job seekers. Recruiters are constantly twitting about jobs they want to interview candidates for.

So to make sure that you are right in the mix of these happenings, all you need to is to create a job search list that includes recruiters, job search websites, HR managers, etc. Then you ensure that you review their tweets daily for latest opportunities that may appeal to you.

3. Add a Personalized LinkedIn URL to your resume

LinkedIn always provides you with a profile URL that most times contains a combination of letters and symbols. Take out time to customize your profile’s URL and make sure that it bears your name and the field you are looking to go into. You can do this by clicking “edit profile” and then click on the “edit” option next to your LinkedIn URL. This way, recruiters are motivated to want to learn more about you.

4. Design a standard resume with Novoresume

While building your LinkedIn profile has some advantages, sometimes you may need to build up your resume to match up with an urgent opportunity. Novoresume helps you do this by making use of your already updated LinkedIn profile. All you need to do is to export your LinkedIn profile into a Novoresume template and you are done!
