Create a LinkedIn profile.
This is one of the main social networking sites used by employers looking for future employees.
Crafting a profile is relatively easy and LinkedIn provides online instructions and prompts to help users.
After you’ve filled out your profile, start to send out connection invitations to friends, family, and professional associates.
You can also ask your LinkedIn connections to introduce you to other people, which will expand your potential job pool even more.
- It’s important that your profile be 100% complete. Spend some time filling out all of the website questionnaires and uploading any professional documents that you have available.
Every time that you make a major update to your resume, go ahead and upload the new document to your page.
- As you see who is viewing your LinkedIn page, don’t be afraid to reach out to them for advice or assistance. This is how many online connections are made.
- ZoomInfo is another site that can be beneficial for an online job search. If you create an account, it will give you access to updated contact information for companies.
