It’s no secret that the job market is completely restructuring itself thanks to the “new normal” through COVID-19, which is why doing your due diligence online ahead of time is one of the most responsible things you could be doing today. Certain industries are lagging, others are pivoting online, and others are popping up in relevance more than ever before if they provide a product or service that helps with a post-coronavirus world.
When you’re ready to be employed, you want to already be in the know so you can snag the job of your dreams immediately. That’s why we’re going to provide for you in this e-book today.
Positioning yourself as an ideal candidate and standing out from the competition can seem overwhelming at times. You may be asking yourself these questions:
- “How do I ensure the company picks my resume and not the other candidate’s?”
- “What if my ideal job isn’t available anymore because of COVID-19? Are there related ones that are going to make me feel fulfilled?”
- “How do I begin the online career search process? Are there special details and nuances I need to know about?”
- “What if I don’t know how to find the job that is right for me? What should I do?”
- “What if I can’t identify my passions and skills? Am I going to be unemployed forever?”
These are all questions I hear from students on a weekly basis. It’s completely normal to have fear and anxiety about the job searching process. You want to pick a career that is going to be rewarding and fruitful for your future. No one wants to waste time at a job that they hate, right?
Thanks to the internet and availability of technology today, you can do some serious research before you ever agree to a job out of college. In fact, if you do all of the due diligence I am about to provide you in this e-book, you’ll be sitting strategically, ready to take on the world without a single fear. It’s all about your preparation and willingness to learn the process.
Therefore, in this e-book, we are going to look at defining your own skills and passions, building a personal brand, leveraging LinkedIn, using online career search tools, sprucing up your resume, and finally, standing out from the competition. You want to ensure that your profile is one that catches recruiter’s attention. That’s exactly what I am going to provide for you.
