Can you believe that spring is here? It’s the perfect time to take a look at your job-search tactics and give them a thorough cleaning. For those of you who are job seekers, the importance of getting found by your target audience on SkillPages is equally as important as it is to engage with that member once they find your profile.
Here are the tips you need to make your profile visible and engaging so that messages start flying into your SkillPages Inbox!
1. Enhance Your Network
Like joining a gym it’s wise to mix up your exercises regularly and your profile is no different. Update or rearrange your information to showcase the most relevant experience and qualifications. Your skills are truly areas where you have confirmed experience, and better yet, expertise. Therefore, to stand out from the crowd keep your profile current and relevant.
2. Replenish Your Network
Now’s the time to plant the seeds for new connections by activating your existing networks from your social networks, in your email service, on Twitter and more. Simply activate your existing networks and we’ll show you people you are connected to, who are already on SkillPages. This will only increase your chance of getting found by people looking for your skills, sooner.
3. Find New Recommendations For Your Skills
Lastly, accumulating a high number of recommendations for your skills is an effective way to boost your credibility on SkillPages. It allows your connections to validate your skill and simply gives your skills a little more exposure to others and puts your name back on the radar of those you are connected to.
We look forward to seeing your updated profiles. If you have any questions or feedback, please leave them in the comments below.
At SkillPages we’re utilizing our innovative technology to help you find the right, trusted people. With our constantly growing community (over 12 million registered members!) we have developed a unique technology, Skill Matcher™, which allows you to see in real-time how many people will be notified about your opportunity.
Make Sure Your Opportunity Gets To Right People
In order to make sure those are the people you’re looking for there are a couple of simple steps that will help you achieve that.
First of all, enter the profession or name of the skill you’re looking for. You can pick from one of suggested skill names in order to increase your chances of finding the right person. Skill Matcher will do all the calculations and show you how many people you will reach. If, for example, you’re not happy with the number of people you’ll reach, you can always adjust the location and Skill Matcher will do all the necessary calculations in real-time. Remember to be as precise as possible to increase your chances of finding the right person with the right skill!
