Changes in recruitment means you should too
Changes in recruitment means you have to adapt to survive
It’s imperative to have a strong online professional presence
• Add a professional photo in line with your target market.
• Add a punchy USP and key-worded professional headline
• Showcase your skills, achievements and experience using metrics. Don’t get trapped in job description mode.
• Network and interact online in an appropriate way.
Head hunter Dorothy Dalton says “Although LinkedIn has dumbed down in the last year, it is still a major data base for all recruiters. Many women can be intimidated by the changes in recruitment and don’t fully understand the implications. They don’t participate or engage and can get left behind. They have to maintain their visibility even if they are not actively looking for a job. You never know about the job opportunities that you might miss because recruiters are not calling you.”
Keep up or risk being left behind
Dorothy suggests that it’s important to have a good understanding of your goals, but many women forget or don’t have time to do their inner work. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses and what industry sectors you want to target is critical. Research companies especially about the conditions that make them attractive for women to work. There are new platforms springing up to offering social proof on the benefits and conditions available to women, as well ranking of the corporate culture.
