Finding the perfect job… Now there’s an adventure.
You’ve heard all the clichés and read all the memes – the do what you love and never work a day in your life types. But in reality how many times a day do you come across the hashtag #dreamjob?
We want to land not just any job, but a job we love and enjoy doing. But where should we begin?
Back in the day when our parents looked for work, they put on strict corporate attire and roamed from one office building to another while they distribute copies of a typewritten (gasp!) resume. Thankfully, in today’s world we can do all that networking online.
LinkedIn has firmly established itself as the top social network for professionals in the world. It’s the simplest (if not the coolest), fuss-free and most efficient way to find relevant leads in your job search without even stepping out of your house. And like all other brilliant solutions of today’s digital world, LinkedIn has the answer to every job seeker’s prayer – a mobile app! So whether you’re a fresh grad or would simply like to explore if the grass is greener on the other side, seeking career opportunities takes only a few taps.
So the first step on Project #dreamjob is to download the LinkedIn app on your cellphone and create your profile. As a Smart postpaid subscriber you are entitled to a 3months FREE Job Seeker Premium Plus subscription so make sure you avail of that to enjoy super perks like Featured Applicant status to help you stand out among other applicants. Don’t forget to also upload your best professional looking photo (Tip : a well taken photograph increases your chances of being found on LinkedIn 14x!) and build an engaging profile that communicates your skills, experiences and the unique value you’ll bring to your future employer.
Done? That was easy. Now you’re officially a candidate on the LinkedIn network and you’re well on your way to landing the job you want.
Good luck! Hope to see your first #ilovemyjob tweet real soon.
