A job search can feel like a race against the clock, and all too often jobseekers busy themselves with the process rather than focusing on the results, says Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart, the leading provider of next-generation outplacement solutions. Sathe offered his thoughts on four key strategies to shorten a job search – strategies he says many jobseekers fail to use.
“The goal of a job search is to find a job quickly, so rather than getting entrenched in the process, it’s vital that jobseekers focus instead on efficiency,” Sathe said. The RiseSmart CEO offered these four strategies:
“Jobseekers aren’t the only ones using social media. Companies are also working to build their online presence and often post openings on their social media sites. Connecting with companies via social media can be an effective way to learn about the company and their opportunities,” says Sathe.
Personal websites are another outlet to create a professional online presence. “Creating a website with your bio, your portfolio and your detailed contact information can give recruiters a one-stop shop for learning about your professional life,” suggests Sathe. “Using a personal website along with your social media can ensure that you are completely represented on the web.” Using these technologies will not only save time in areas such as networking, but it allows recruiters to reach out to candidates.
