Whether you find yourself looking for a job or want to find a better opportunity, your career goals and resolutions should be no different. At VIP Staffing, our Executive Vice President, Andrew Himoff, has identified several resolutions to help you land that new position.
- Update your resume – In today’s market your resume must really stand out, especially when employers spend five to seven seconds determining if you are a good fit for their company. Update your resume focusing on accomplishments, instead of responsibilities. Create a tailored resume for each job you apply for, and showcase items detailing why you are the best fit for that particular position.
- Clean up your social media – In the digital age, it is not uncommon for employers to browse social media accounts. Employers could decide not to call you back based on your social media posts. Remove posts that may show incriminating behavior or behavior you would be embarrassed for your Mother to see. Update your LinkedIn profile with your current resume focusing on accomplishments.
- Expand your network – You never know when you might meet your next employer. Join a professional network that will help develop you professionally and that will keep your specific skill set up to date. Join groups focused on the industry you want to advance in or that promote the skills you wish to develop. These groups will expand your network and just might put you in contact with your next employer.
