Not in your father's job market: looking for work in the 21st century

Simply sending a wave of abstracts is not enough to attract the attention of the employer. Given the increasingly competitive job markets, the traditional approach to hunting is no longer relevant

This means that an amazing picture of you living this year probably harms your chances at work, but it also means you have to do more than to adverts that you are well-adjusted and reliable. You must be a candidate

Build your personal brand

You need to determine the effect of the hiring manager when viewing your profile. Yes, the ultimate goal is to get out of pictures, posts and heads, but they still have to be relevant

"When you're looking for a job, make sure you have cleaned social media pages," says Sean D' Souza, a talent acquisition manager at the Workshop. "It is also important to keep track of the social network profiles of the companies you are interested in and share the materials they might be interested in."

Integrity is also promoted. Using the same name and profile is a good start. This will allow the recruiters to easily use your digital presence. To make it simple, essentially, you want to present yourself as an agreed package on different social media platforms

You should also explore and connect to people who have common values and philosophy

You can use all tools, such as

Another good clue is not to limit the presence of social networks in companies. You should also explore and connect with people who have common values and philosophy. This is the network communication form, and it can help you find jobs later

Use the telephone to find jobs

With the help of mobile nodes, job alerts, social media and applications, to find the last open positions, you can be one of the first to know when an interesting post becomes available

"Mobile can be very handy in finding a job, but when you're looking for a location, it's better to set up a cover letter and get back to work that you are using, and it's a lot harder to do on your mobile," says D' Souza

Education is not as important as experience, skills, or

The recruiters are wasting their time searching for the same old, same old age. They also spend an average of about 10 seconds on the skimming. You have to stand down, and you have to make it quick

The market is now crowded with a highly educated workforce, making education less and less relevant. " Paid your resume with volunteer experience, internship, joint use, as well as side giBets are different interests and experiences that can make you a stronger candidate than someone who has only a diploma

You, as an employee, are consistent with the company's values? Does it seem that you wanted gel with the current company culture?

Finally, the race is an extremely important factor for employers. 'Fit' is what it sounds like. You, as an employee, are consistent with the company's values? Does it seem that you wanted gel with the current company culture?

" When you are invited to the interview, you should study the culture and clothing of the company to make an impression-wear your colors and conduct some research on their signature character. The way you approach is a very important aspect for employers these days, " said D' Souza

use online portfolios

If you are a creative type, the Internet portfolio must be absolute. It gives you the opportunity to show your chosen works and it is incredibly easy to share. The connection to the résumé or the cover letter is a long way to get traction in the eyes of the recruiter

WordPress, PortfoloBox and Square are all costs-efficient, tested and true platforms for building clean, professional portfolios, online portfolios

Look for industry communities

In addition to such boards as the Workopolis, an efficient approach to finding work can be to find industry communities and message boards

Just keep it, you don't want to get into an erotic bakery board, unless it's you

The video killed the star

Whether it's a recently launched Workopolis, or just a Skype meeting, the video interview is becoming more and more popular. The video interview gives employers the opportunity to see and hear statements before meeting them in person

You need to be clear about what you can bring in companies. Therefore, ask questions you cannot find answers to interactively. What is a company's fight? How can you help?

It may seem strange, but you have to treat it like any other interview is more than just talking about yourself. You need to be clear about what you can bring in companies. Therefore, ask questions you cannot find answers to interactively. What is a company's fight? How can you help?
