5 Ways The Internet has Changed the Hiring Process
If you are looking for a job you need to know the five ways the internet has changed the skills needed to get a job today:
1. PAPER vs. ELECTRONIC RESUME: Custom Keywording Your Resume. In the 1960’s you would send in a paper resume, today your resume is electronic and scanned by software. You must have the right keywords in your resume to get a job interview.
2. NEWSPAPER vs. JOB WEBSITES: Navigating Job Search Engines. You used to circle a job in the newspaper, now you search for a job on websites on the internet. You need to know the techniques for using job search engines.
3. RESUME vs. ONLINE PROFILE: Creating an Online Business Profile. Hiring was a one step process. Hiring managers looked at a stack of paper resumes and made their choice of who to interview.
Now hiring is a two step process with the resume as the first step and going online to learn more about the job applicants as the new second step. If you don’t have a business profile online and they can’t find you, you get left out.
4. IN PERSON vs. ONLINE NETWORK RESEARCH: Networking Online, Networking to find a job has always been one of the best ways to get a job. Now you can use the internet to turbo charge your networking making it many times more effective.
FIRST IMPRESSION IN PERSON vs. ONLINE: Making a Great First Impression Online. Before the internet first impressions were made in person, now the first impression a hiring manager has of you is your headshot online. Studies show that no photo means they are 17 times less likely to check out your profile.
