Always keep track

You should always keep track of the information you’re collecting and write it down in one place when you start applying for jobs. This should include important details like the name of the companies you’ve applied to as well as the positions you’ve shown interest in pursuing. This will help keep track of and evaluate your job hunting efforts as a whole.

Promote by building reputation

It’s not a bad thing to promote yourself, and you can do it without coming off as an egotistical person. Create a portfolio of your work and then share it on social media. It will showcase your skills and hopefully help you land a job that matches your qualifications. It also shows potential employers that you are self-assertive and proactive.

Build out your LinkedIn profile

It’s important to have a professional profile on LinkedIn as it give employers an easy way of reaching out to you because they can see what you have to offer them right there on your profile page. We can help you build out a profile that will showcase your best qualifications.

Create an impressive resume
