After a year, have you changed your mind about how an online presence enhances your job search?
There are no tricks involved. No tight rope to walk. You’re not putting on a show for others to see other than work. It would help if you created a demand for your work.
People who found work in my private group increased their chances of finding a job after investing time in their online activities. Posting, commenting, networking, creating articles and videos, participating in group chats, and more.
If your goal is to impress future employers, recruiters, and referrers, creating an online reputation helps. It would be best if you tried to impress friends who are working where you want to work. Or people you want to collaborate with on projects to advance or solidify your career. Or how about impressing someone who knows someone working in the industry who is hiring.
You can’t do it without networking or a two-prong approach of people getting to know and demand the need for your work.
If you’re not doing this, or haven’t started, then you’ll be behind.
You should bet on yourselves if you’re satisfied with your current job. Very few people are happy with the job they have for years to come. Stop waiting to lack job satisfaction. It might be too late.
You must keep your fishing line in the water to catch fish. But you must know the best spot to catch fish, and others will tell you where they saw a bunch. You’ll go where others are catching fish successfully. Or you can play the long game, which is finding where the vacant spots where there’s much fish. My wish is for you to play the long game.
It’s not too late for the 2023 job search. You’ve got a lot of work to do for 2021. Let’s go.
