It’s the 21st century, we all have a personal brand and an online presence is a must. The world we live in is evolving. People will be googling you. Best that YOU are in charge of curating what they find.
LinkedIn is a highly effective search engine. This means you can be found by employers (rather than you doing the searching).
LinkedIn is also a professional networking platform (that’s right, networking online from the comfort of your own home, in your PJ’s – glass of red in hand).
Networking is vital to your career success… you know the age old saying “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. This doesn’t mean that your only chances of scoring a new job is through Uncle Bob in the family hardware business. It means people recommend people. Once there is a face to the name, some conversing happening, and aligned skills, then voila Bob’s your Uncle! Foot in the door (not the hardware store) but the company and department you are interested in, through your targeted approach on LinkedIn.
Formalities next, “can you please send your résumé to the HR department!”
Résumés (CV’s), Cover letter’s, Selection Criteria, LinkedIn Profiles….. they all take time and cut into your time! We all lead busy lives and our time is precious. Whether it’s precious moments with your family, your busy work schedule, the small pocket of time you were going to squeeze in the gym, a catch up with friends on the weekend, Netflix & Chill with yours’ truly or some much-needed self-care.
If you are stuck at a fork in the road and unsure which way to go.
Perhaps you’ve even had a successful career and suddenly you’ve realised this is not what you want to be doing for the next 20, 30 or 40 years’ of your working life.
Maybe you’ve gone through a major change in your life such as redundancy, job loss, time taken to raise a family. These circumstances often give us the opportunity to reflect on our career. We take stock and realise the career I’m in is not or no longer my passion.
Or you’re at the point where you are tired, overworked, underpaid and frankly bitter in your chosen field and want/NEED a change.
