Key Strategies to Get Traction in Your Job Search
PERSONAL BRANDING | NETWORKING | LINKEDIN
Why are Personal Branding, Networking & LinkedIn Key to Your Job Search Success?
The job search market has changed considerably in the last few years. Thanks to platforms such as LinkedIn, employers and recruiters are now overwhelmed with applications (LinkedIn reports an average of 250 applicants per job opening). This has triggered the use of various software aiming to screen out and reduce the number of potential candidates, namely the so-called ATS which makes it even more difficult for candidates to screen in and get noticed.
So what can job hunters do to navigate the realities and challenges of this competitive job search market? This is what you will learn in this 3-part workshop in which I will present the key personal branding, networking and LinkedIn strategies that job hunters need to leverage for job search success.
This workshop will provide you with practical and step-by-step approaches to:
- Build a solid brand allowing you to stand out of the crowd, show how you add value and thereby position yourself as THE candidate of choice and claim your worth
- Build and expand a solid network that will give you access to the hidden job opportunities (that's 60-80% of opened positions not advertised online) and most importantly, how to convert your networking activities into concrete job leads that will lead you to your next job offer!
- Masterfully use LinkedIn to propel your job search using the latest strategies (and some touches of digital marketing) to further build and establish your professional brand, get visible and find hidden jobs!
