Description

If you are still looking for a job and not able to find one for you, may be you need tips to find one. Here’s what the experts said are seven keys to a successful job search in today’s competitive environment.

Hiring managers (and the computers they use to sort through resumes) are in a rush. So you need to format your resume to be read quickly and in small bites. These days, a typical resume is scanned for just six to 10 seconds, often on a mobile device.

Want a way to distinguish yourself from the crowd of applicants? Many job seekers are supplementing their resumes with collateral leadership briefs, blogs that establish their robust online professional identity and, among senior-level managers, one-page executive summaries.

More employers are relying on Skype for long-distance and initial screening interviews. As a result, more job seekers are using coaches to help them excel in video presentations.

Over the past few years, using LinkedIn network to find jobs has gone from a good idea to essential. Having a sharp LinkedIn profile may be even more important than having a great resume.

Personal websites, social media presence, development of subject matter expertise and a well-defined personal brand will be the requirements for gaining the attention of prospective employers.

To maximize your chances for success using job boards, focus on smaller, regional and industry-specific job boards, as well as aggregator sites, like Indeed.com and Simplyhired.com.

The hiring process has been growing longer, with more steps and delays between the time people apply for jobs and receive offers. So start today.

The AMCAT is India’s first employability assessment test that help fresh graduates to get their first job quickly and efficiently.
