DENVER, CO -- For those of you fortunate enough to never have had to type your resume on a typewriter, you probably don't realize how difficult and manual job hunting was in the pre-digital days. We (yes, we are now all in the same boat) now have different challenges that the digital age poses. Now the name of the game is leveraging digital tools. And to those who master these skills, the job market is all yours. Here are some tips to help you in your 2018 job search:
Tip #1: Make your current resume accessible online. Upload your resume to company websites, niche career sites, job boards and professional network sites like LinkedIn. Tip #2: Use job search engines. Job search engines have the ability to deliver personalized job search results to your mailbox. The advantage is that you can set up very specific search criteria.
Tip #3: Leverage social media networking sites. You should leverage these to both, cultivate your professional network and to look for jobs. Tip #4: Do your homework and research companies. You need to have a good idea about where you want to work and about the kind of companies you want to target. Tip #5: Know your interviewer -- have you LinkedIn today? -- LinkedIn is not only about your network, you can also use it to find out lots of information on your interviewer. Good luck in your search.
