Steps to Completing Your Candidate Profile
HOW TO ENHANCE YOUR CAREER PROFILE
What does that statement mean? Essentially you want to make yourself more visible. But what does that mean?
In todays tech based world, companies are using analytics more than ever. In one area where analytics have not been used as seldom is the employee hiring process, where in its traditional format is very unscientific.
As more Tech, IT, Accounting and Finance jobs are steered into remote based positions, companies are also taking the opportunity to measure employees beyond an interview and a resume. Employers are looking for quantitative ways of measuring skills set.
As a result the resume in todays contexts will be soon obsolete. Candidates will need to brand themselves and their skill set to match company needs. The rise of professional training sites and recent purchase of Lynda.com for 1.5 billion by LinkedIn, in April of 2015 verifies the employment trends that will affect your career.
Dont be left behind; Candidate branding is not just for candidates starting their careers or older candidates trying to show that they have kept up with the times. It will be a norm of the hiring process soon, displaying your career growth, achievements, and specific skills set values.
Dont tell companies you are a master at Quickbooks, or can pickup any system fast, or you are an Excel Wiz ! Show them ! So they can hire in confidence.
Its simple and many times, it just takes a little time. Put in the time and see the fruits of your labor as you watch your career open up to new opportunities, a salary which you desire and a position fitted to your strengths and likes.
