Set Your Job Search Up For Success In The New Year

As you know, now is a great time to look for a new position. Great talent is in high demand, and employees have more bargaining power than ever. If one of your goals for 2022 is to land a new job, here’s how to set your job search up for success in the new year.

Refresh Your Resume

Wow, a lot has changed over the past year, hasn’t it? Maybe you got a promotion, or added new skills, or completed a big project. No matter what you accomplished in 2021, it deserves space on your resume. And in order to put your best foot forward in the new year, your resume needs to be up to date and reflective of your recent achievements. Remember to include measurable results and customize it as required when applying to specific jobs.

Ramp Up Your Online Presence

You would be surprised at the impact your online presence can have on your job search. One thing to consider in this candidate-driven job market is that employers are hiring fast. So, the quicker you can stand out, the better! Include a link to your updated LinkedIn profile on your resume and in your email signature. Share relevant industry content on the social media site so that when prospective employers visit your profile, they see that you’re actively engaged in the community.
