Job seekers, I know that you have probably already received endless advice on social media. You read articles on how to set up social media sites, how to create a personal brand, which sites you should be using, and what you should and more importantly should not be sharing on social media sites.You’re told that potential employers are searching for you on social media sites and that it can make or break you landing an interview, so since we work in the recruiting space we decided to conduct our own survey.

A job search is not easy. That’s no secret. Like many job seekers, you may find yourself frustrated. You are applying to dozens of jobs and are receiving little or no response to your submissions. Even though a high-volume of submissions can increase the odds of a response, you may actually find much more success with a strategic search. Here are 3 commonalities that lead to an ineffective job search and ways to overcome them.

These days, the most effective job seekers find opportunities not only by using the traditional resume, which is still a necessity, but by also building a strong social brand. What is social brand? We constantly hear how important it is for companies to have a social brand in order to create a strong online presence, as well as a loyal customer base and community. However, it is equally, if not more important for job seekers to create a social brand, and by this I mean establishing an online identity that effectively communicates who you are as a professional and as an individual.

If you are actively looking for a job, whether you are just starting the search or have been looking for quite some time, you should know what people are looking for. Notice how I wrote, ‘people’ and not ‘companies’ – that was not by coincidence. Companies do not hire people, people hire people. And we tell all of our candidates and clients that ‘people buy from who they like, and people hire people they like.’

If you can believe it, it’s that time of year again where recent college graduates are now becoming alumni and entering the work force. Many are in the same boat, trying to figure out their next move and start their professional career, but some may find themselves thinking “what career path is best for me?”

Identifying top sales professionals can sometimes be a difficult task. I have met many talented individuals, but sometimes they fail to truly represent their skills and successes on their resume. In many cases, it’s after speaking with the candidates that they learn they are more talented than they realized; they just never kept record of their accomplishments.

As a Sales Recruiter, I interview hundreds of sales people a year. Most are good at verbalizing what they have done throughout their career but can't necessarily create a resume that reflects that information accurately on paper. Many claim that they have tweaked and rewritten their resumes over and over again with the same results - a resume that is getting them nowhere.
