15 Job Search Strategies
Today, you can no longer send off tons of résumés and expect a job! I call it “Spray and Pray”. You need better Job Search Strategies…
I found a great article that gives 15 Ideas on making your LinkedIn Profile POP.
This is Part 2, ideas 4 – 6…
Next 3 Strategies and My Takes
4. GET CLEAR ON KEYWORDS
❝everybody knows about SEO, but how do you get it right for your personal profile?
…list keywords that can make a difference
…a search for “Product Manager” yields 12M+ results & 640K+ people with that phrase in their job title❞
MY TAKE: Enter a role, get the Top Skills for it and work them into your profile
5. SPEAK IN NUMBERS
❝Wherever possible, write about outcomes and results, and avoid adjectives (unless they are supported by results)
…anybody can say that they are customer-focused,
but hard numbers testify that your profile isn’t fake news.❞
MY TAKE: 💯! 🤪
6. BEEF UP YOUR HEADLINE
❝describe the service you can provide in a way that’s authentic and not over-the-top
…Look in the direction of service, solutions and impact
…Elaborate on how you can help others, and you’ll help yourself in the process!❞
MY TAKE: Search your keywords – with and without them in your headline. Take full advantage of the 120 characters!
