3 ways to demonstrate your value in a job searchAbridged: MSN Careers

LOS ANGELES, CA -- To really stand out from the rest requires that you demonstrate the value you can bring in the future, not the past. Remember that you are being hired to solve someone's problems. Here are three easy ways to help you demonstrate your value with a potential employer.

  • Have something to say. Even if people don't agree with you, they will respect you for being brave enough to voice an opinion. No one likes to hire a "yes" man. Having something to say shows that you are motivated.
  • Have a place to say it. Today there are thousands of bloggers, and many of these bloggers are job seekers. In fact, these days many job seekers find work based on their blogs. A blog is a wonderful platform to show the world that you have something to say. It shows that you can write and are tech savvy. It shows that you're not afraid to take a stand. You might document your job search. You might follow a topic.
  • Be a leader, start a group or community. Encourage people to comment. Comments shows that you, as a thought leader, are provoking discussion and that people care about what you have to say. Having comments also tells Google that you are special. And with your name on the blog, your smart articles will soon begin to dominate Google search results for your name.
