7 Tips for the Job Seeker

  1. Beef up your LinkedIn – Employers will look at it. In fact, we as recruiters will find and get people jobs just off a LinkedIn resume. Bonus points for asking a former employer or colleague for a recommendation.
  2. Don’t post about your job hunt on your Facebook – if you must, make sure the posts are private
  3. Make time to interview– This is key is you’re still employed somewhere. You can’t make a good first impression if you never show up.
  4. Keep track of who and/or what companies you are sending your resume to– The last thing you want is to get a call from AOL and accidentally tell them how excited you are to work at New York Magazine.
  5. Keep your resume simple and concise – don’t worry you’ll get to brag plenty at your interview.
  6. Make sure your voicemail message is PROFESSIONAL. I once called a very promising candidate back in hopes of setting up a phone interview for a social media position. I got his voicemail. As entertaining as it was… I just couldn’t schedule an interview with someone who just drunkenly sang me “I’m Sexy and I Know It.”
