A Social Media Job Search True Story

Posted by Richard Yadon in Featured, Job Search | 0 comments

A True Story of Social Media Job Search Success

In his article, Holmes talks about how social media is making the job search process easier for both job seekers and employers.  I would agree.  There are more ways than ever to connect with people and companies today through social media. While reading an article by Ryan Holmes on LinkedIn about social media tips for job hunting, I was reminded of a true story that happened to me a few months ago. Social media isn't just useful if you are looking for a job. It is also one of the best ways to stay on top of your career field and to gain recognition and influence as a thought leader.  That by itself can connect you to opportunities you would never have known existed. Of course if you aren't connected at all then you need to get started.   I have provided my personal social media links below if you'd like to expand your network.   Just Friend Me, Invite Me, or Follow Me, depending on what network you want to connect.

No More Networking Excuses

Posted by admin in Featured, Job Search | 0 comments

Networking is a critical part of your job search. Often, job seekers will admit that networking is their least favorite part of looking for new opportunities. Networking, like all other uncomfortable tasks in life, can be avoided with a variety of excuses. These excuses need to be addresses, evaluated and then overcome. Networking is absolutely necessary if you want to secure employment within a reasonable amount of time. The following are a few of the most common excuses given when a job seeker doesn’t want to network:

  • I’m too busy – first define what “busy” means. We can all be too busy to avoid doing things that we don’t want to do. You need to prioritize your day and see where your job search falls in order of importance. If you are seeking employment and need a new opportunity now, then you need to be “busy” working on your job search! If you are unemployed, you should make searching for a new opportunity your full time job. If you are currently networking, one way to drastically increase your job leads is to make increases in your number of contacts. Even small increases can have very positive impact on your search. If you make only one new contact every day, that is 30 new active job leads every day! You are not too busy to meet one new person!
 
  • I’m too shy – this is a very common statement. The truth is that most people feel that they are not outgoing enough to network. If you attend an event focused on networking, you need to remind yourself that most of the professionals there are also uncomfortable. You need to stay focused on the reason why you are at the event. It is not necessary for you to make friends or to talk with numerous people. It is more effective to watch, listen and then make your move. Attempt to target those professionals who can advance your search! One additional approach is to talk with others with the idea that you might be able to assist them. Keep in mind that quality contacts are better than a quantity of contacts.
 
  • I really don’t need help from others – this excuse doesn’t really count as an excuse! If you are in a job search, you need help from anyone who will help! It is your responsibility to tell everyone you know that you are looking for a new opportunity. Go a step further and ask them to ask others if they know of any job leads. This is networking, it is as simple as asking others to keep their eyes open for you. Many times resumes are passed on, interviews are scheduled and jobs are offered because a name was mentioned by the “right person.”
While the word “Networking” may initially seem like a lot of work. It may also seem intimidating. The truth is; it necessary and it is extremely effective in your job search. Once you practice the skill of networking, your confidence will build and your results will positively impact your overall search!  

30 Minutes to Unlock the Power of LinkedIn

Linkedin Website

by Richard Yadon

Don’t Miss the Powerful Career Acceleration
Potential of LinkedIn

Last week I was talking with someone about where they wanted their career to go and we got on the topic of how to use social media as a networking tool.
"You mean like Facebook?" the person asked.

 

"No", I said, "I mean like LinkedIn. In case you haven't noticed, there are over 400 million business and professional people on LinkedIn. You can't ignore  something that that and be serious about your career."

 

If you spend anytime on Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, etc... you probably don't need just another social network to waste your time. I agree. However, LinkedIn is not a waste.  It is not a waste to employers. It is not a waste to executives leading corporations. It is not a waste to business people looking for your skills and experience! In fact, when you list skills on your profile you get 13 times more views!

 

IT'S JUST STRANGE!

7K0A0021

Not having an up-to-date presence on LinkedIn is like a business without a website. It is just strange!
Like a business website your profile needs to be optimized. It needs to be engaging to encourage people to reach out to you. You can be a passive member on LinkedIn and still get a lot of value. Optimizing your profile is not hard. It takes a little thought and time. There is a right way and a wrong way to do it as well. You can find a lot of information on the web about optimizing your profile.

 

One way to gain a high level of engagement on LinkedIn is by adding some video to your profile. This is very easy to do. Just draft a quick, 30 to 60 second personal value proposition and record it with your mobile device or webcam. Save it to YouTube and paste the embed link into your LinkedIn profile.

 

Here's a short tutorial I did about how to add this to your profile...

30 MINUTE CAREER INVESTMENT

 

There are some other things you can do to increase egagement and your network on LinkedIn. It doesn't take hours a day to be Active on LinkedIn. It does take a focused effort and setting aside perhaps 30 minutes each week. Most busy professionals can squeeze in 30 minutes a week to keep their careers on the fast track.

 

Here are three simple things you can do on a regular basis to stay tapped into the career building power of LinkedIn:

  1. Keep your profile up to date. Don’t wait until you need a job to update your profile. You never know when the perfect opportunity is trolling the LinkedIn directory looking for a profile just like yours. This can’t happen if you haven’t updated your profile in the past few years.
  2. Write a reference for people you work for. Not only is this highly appreciated, but the odds are very strong that you’ll get a glowing reference back from them. Give and you shall receive.
  3. Join and participate in groups. Answer one question a week. Comment on a link someone posted. Be sure to answer it in such a way that clearly demonstrates your area of expertise or profession.

 

As soon as you finish reading this look at your calendar and decide when you are going to spend 30 minutes this week to proactively manage your career. Make the appointment with yourself and write it down. Image the network you could build in a year’s time by spending an accumulated 26 hours on LinkedIn.

 

You’ll be amazed at the opportunities that come your way and new connections you will make.

Are you ‘Attractive’ to Employers?

Posted by admin in Candidates, Career Management, Featured | 0 comments

Employers want problem solvers, not workers

shutterstock_90694780Today’s hiring authorities want to attract and hire individuals who will provide them with the greatest return on their investment. In addition, they want someone who can help them solve challenges, issues or problem areas. Most industries or professions have universal problems that they face. Take time today to think about the problems you have solved for past employers. Review what actions you took and the results that were achieved. Now make a list of potential employers you feel would be facing the same kind of problem and directly market yourself to the person who would be your bosses’ boss. Stress the problems you faced, solutions you implemented and results that were enjoyed by past employers. This will encourage the hiring authority to envision you as a problem solver who would be at asset to their current team. Most employers would like to upgrade their team and solve current issues or problems. Position yourself as that person, and you will greatly increase your chances of scheduling an interview.

The Myth of Job Security

Posted by admin in Candidates, Career Management, Featured | 0 comments

In today’s job market, there is really no job security.

The only way you can achieve job security is to keep your knowledge and skills current, to consistently improve your marketability and value. Employers will do their best to attract and retain entrepreneurial overachievers. Commit to a lifetime of learning starting immediately. Executive Search If you want to be successful in your job search, you must articulate your value. You must conduct research beyond the job description and understand the needs, challenges and expectations of your potential employer. It is only then that you can explain your value to an employer. Often reading trade publications or press and media will reveal this information. It is always wise to read what others are saying about your prospective employer. If you are not working, then you may convince yourself that you can’t afford training or education. The Internet offers an abundance of information and there are many courses offered for free. Research which skills and knowledge would enhance your resume and make a commitment to acquire the training you need. Obtaining additional training also helps explain what you are currently doing, if you are not employed. A lifetime of learning will GUARANTEE your job security. MUST READ The ideal situation in any job search is that a potential hiring authority reaches out to you. The only way to make this happen is to be extremely visible and perceived as an expert. There are a few things you can do that don’t cost any money but will provide you with great exposure. These include: submit articles and get them printed in a Trade Publications, start a blog or comment on blogs written by others, tweet important facts or post videos on you tube that display your knowledge.
