Unfortunately, summer is just about over. (After all, it is September 1.) As we head into the fall and winter months, perhaps you’re thinking about changing jobs and seeking out new employment opportunities.
If you decide to strike out in search of “greener pastures” at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2022, then you’ll need to stand out from everybody who’s doing the same thing.
And that’s exactly what you don’t want to do: the same thing as everybody else. You’ll want to stand out to potential employers, and below are four tips for doing just that:
You can’t wait around for employers to post job openings. The best companies should always be on the lookout for great workers, whether they have an opening or not. That’s why you must be proactive in your quest to show your value as a worker and an employee.
#3—Utilize ALL of social media.
Finding a great new job isn’t just for LinkedIn. If you apply a strategic approach, you can use the other social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) to show employers your unique value. Each of these platforms have different tools and resources, and each should be researched and then implemented for maximum effect.
In order to stand out, you have to do something that most job seekers do not. That is the very essence of standing out. (If you do what everybody else does, then you’re NOT going to stand out.) Put yourself in the shoes of an employer. What would make you sit up and take notice?
5—Play to your strengths.
Remember, you want to illustrate the value that you can bring to a company. So it only makes sense that you’ll use your strengths in the form of skills and abilities when attempting to stand out. Your message should be, “This is how I could bring value to your organization.”
And value is what it all boils down to. Companies want candidates who will bring them tremendous value as employees, so you must show that value before you’re hired and use the way in which you show it to stand out and grab their attention.
