Agenda:

Meet Beverly R Daniels a career growth expert with over 25 years of career coaching. Learn the new secrets of how to get a job.

Topics: Linked in, networking and keeping up to date.
Keep your LinkedIn profile up to date. The most important aspect of LinkedIn is that recruiters monitor your profile on a daily basis. Having a good profile in your professional field will provide recruiters with your background so they can reach out to you whenever they have an appropriate opening for which you qualify. We have discussed this in previous newsletters (How to Work Effectively with Executives Recruiters) and this information should serve as a guide. Also, internal recruiters will look at LinkedIn profiles for their openings as well. Of course, all successful career professionals know that using LinkedIn as a tool can be effective for building one’s professional network.
Keep your resume up to date. Do people still ask for resumes? Yes they do. Certain clients of mine do not want to have an up-to-date LinkedIn profile. They worry that a LinkedIn profile visible to all means that their bosses will become suspicious that an employee wishes to leave. The confidential nature of a job search can make a discrete job search too openly visible just because they have a LinkedIn profile. Also, LinkedIn allows an individual only one profile. My clients are often looking at 2 or more roles and have at least two or three separate versions of a resume highlighting different strengths/core competencies.
Make in-person networking a Way of Life. This means joining professional groups (i.e., CFA Society, Women in Development [WID], the New York State Society of CPAs [NYSSCPA]), participating on committees, appearing at professional conferences and appearing on professional panels. While many clients move forward to new roles through people they know, people often find it advantageous to make new contacts and forge ahead to new opportunities.
