new job. But that doesn’t always mean success especially
when you’re job searching for 2018 to 2019. It’s a lot
different. Worst case, every $10K you wish to earn will
mean an extra month of searching so expect that ahead of
Applying to dozens of jobs online is a huge time waster.
Studies show only 3 percent of the applicants ever get
called for an interview. If you’ve applied for hundreds of jobs
online and gotten only a few calls, that’s why. You need a
strategy and you need a plan. Don’t do what everyone else
is doing if you want faster results.

SO DO EMPLOYERS!
More and more employers are starting to realise that reactive
recruitment is not the way to go. Increasingly, companies are
spending time to build a network of potential candidates they
can tap into when the right job comes along. And, the most
switched on employers groom talent to get to know them – so
they get to know you. Often, they use LinkedIn to contact
you. But, there are other tools and channel.
Other common ways of engaging with future talent are via
newsletters, social media pages, apps, and blogs. Followers
are often first to know when new opportunities come up.
HIRING HAS BECOME
LinkedIn has over 400 million users and is
set to remain the most powerful professional
social network of the future. Most hiring
managers and recruiters still check out
LinkedIn as their first port of call when they
have new roles to fill, vetting candidates
using keywords or specific qualifications tied
to job requirements. Don’t miss the boat, get

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE
POWER OF LINKEDIN
Cross-checking a candidate’s LinkedIn profile against their resume and
conducting social media checks across digital footprints – such as Twitter,
blogs and even dating apps has become the standard protocol for recruiters
and hiring managers who have to hire for top end positions.
CROSS CHECKS AND
EMPLOYEE TESTS ARE BACK
Hiring Managers are fed up dealing with inflated or fake resumes and falsified
credentials and increasingly take preventive measures to screen and check
Get ready and expect tougher social media screening and personality tests.
“It’s crucial the details on your CV and your online profile are synced –
because if they aren’t, you’ll appear untrustworthy,” Google yourself to see
what your online footprint looks like and clean up if necessary.
Research by US company Classes & Careers found that a third of
all hiring managers make up their minds about a candidate within
the first 90 seconds of an interview.
“The power of that first impression is trendier than ever; make
sure you look the part at every step of the process, from your
application documents to your personal online branding to your
dress and appearance when you interview.”
Technology and more rigorous selection methods look set to be
the key trends in 2018, so potential recruits need to be consistent
in how they appear online, on paper, and in person.
YOU ONLY GET 90 SECONDS
– DON’T WASTE THEM.
LinkedIn recently identified this list of the most promising
jobs. So, if you want to make your pitch believable, check the
skills that are required to succeed in those roles. Project and
account management, communication, software development
and coding languages such as Java, SQL and Python, sales,
customer service and relationship management, design and
product development, marketing, manufacturing, engineering,
data analysis, machine learning and an ability to train others.
If you have these skills in your background, highlight them in
your resume, cover letters, LinkedIn profile, or wherever you
get the opportunity.
HIGHLIGHT THESE SKILLS
No one likes wasting their time, so show that you are ‘Job Ready.’ How? Check
out the list of abilities you need to showcase below to be as classed ‘job ready.’
Prospective employers need to see that you are
confident in your own communication style and that you
have the maturity to verbally communicate at a
professional level, as well as in writing.
The way professionals present themselves to the
business, both online and offline, will be key to
identifying whether they will meet the expectations and
culture of the business.
Time managements skills are best demonstrated by the ability to work
part-time whilst committing to studies, attending sporting events, or
even juggling with volunteering. Most of all, effective time management
is clearly demonstrated when you turn up at the interview on time and
actually come prepared.
Not everyone is a leader and that is okay. However, the need to work
with others is imperative throughout your career so being able to
demonstrate the ability to work in a team and collaborate is crucial.
PROOF THAT YOU ARE JOB READY
Hiring professionals are increasingly tired of dealing with
candidates who show signs of the “entitlement
syndrome”. So, be sure to demonstrate that you are
honest with yourself, that you have taken time to self-
analyse, and that you are not wasting their time.
Good Luck and always remember to hunt wisely!
