Stand out from the crowd to get the job you want

SHARE:



The economy is tough, and every trend line that an economists graph seems to point towards it getting tougher. Jobs overall will be harder to come by, not to mention career-oriented employment. However, the Internet provides many resources for young graduates that were not available in previous generations. It is time to monetize that penchant for self-promotion into a pay check. Below are a few ways that you can stand out from the crowd in order to get the job that you want.


Make sure you have a LinkedIn account

If you have any experience with a Facebook account (who doesn't), then you know just how convenient it can be for your personal life. LinkedIn gives you the same kind of convenience for your business life.

Although there are paid programs on LinkedIn to participate in, even a basic profile on the site will help you to stand out from the crowd. You will be able to upload a cover letter, list your work experience and update your resume in a format that is easily recognizable to employers. Imagine never having to worry about whether to put your education or your experience first!

Most importantly, you will be able to easily connect with mentors and employers who could ease your path to employment. You will be able to communicate with these decision-makers via interests and be able to easily search for jobs and people that can facilitate your entry into your preferred career. The search engine on LinkedIn is incredibly precise; make sure that you take advantage of it at every opportunity.

Perform a little search engine optimization for yourself


If a potential employer is truly interested in your resume, the first thing that he or she will do is type your name into Google. If the first thing that appears is your Facebook or Instagram profile full of compromising pictures, odds are that you will probably not get that job.

In order to ensure that the first impression employers receive of you is positive, you can start a personal blog for free on WordPress ,Blogspot and Tumblr.By creating websites for yourself, you control the information that people see. By tweaking each of these websites you could showcase yourself to the employer of your choice.

Use these resources to flaunt your creativity in a professional manner

One legendary story of creative ways to attract employers involved a highly qualified candidate who was somehow not getting the attention he deserved. This candidate created a Facebook page listing his accomplishments and experiences; however, the hook was the hunger strike that he promised to uphold until he got a job. Needless to say, his chutzpah attracted many employers.


Although, you do not have to take your search for employment that far, you should create an online persona for yourself using the same kind of creativity. What exactly makes you different from the thousands of other graduates across the world? Remember that you are competing in a global economy. Make sure that employers know exactly what makes you different and showcase it proudly (but professionally).
