While some still believe that writing a good resume and sending it to every possible business email is a good strategy; this may be the easiest way for a presentation to end up in the deleted messages folder; and knowing which paths to take is fundamental so that those looking for a job can be successful and attract the attention of the most varied recruiters.
With that in mind, check out four special tips so that your search for a new opportunity has more chances to succeed – and keep an eye out for mistakes you might be making when you’re playing in the job market:
Bet on who knows your work
Avoid texting job openings to recruiters you’ve never had contact with. This type of ‘uninvited’ email does not yield many results, and trying to be introduced to someone who has some influence in the company can be much more likely to succeed.
Keep a good network of contacts
Vacancies called invisible are the best friends of those who have contacts within a company with opportunities, and maintaining a good and active relationship with former colleagues and work partners can open many doors.
Forget impossible opportunities
Search for vacancies that suit your profile and forget about unattainable opportunities that will only waste your time.
Expose yourself in the right way and don’t get lost on the web
Signing up on all job sites and forgetting to check your profiles is a common mistake and can decrease your chances of getting good exposure – so stay tuned and up to date on all contacts with opportunities available on the web.
