DEAR COLLEGE STUDENT, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING 10 LINKEDIN TIPS
My oldest daughter is off to college next year, so I hope she heeds my advice. Pinterest is fine, I tell her, communicating on Twitter is even better, but it’s LinkedIn that will help her network online. I haven’t seen LinkedIn offered as a core course at her school, but maybe I’ll make a strong suggestion.
Career Development Carnival: March 2013
Welcome to the Career Development Carnival hosted by Hannah Morgan and Lynn Dessert.
Here’s how a blog carnival works. Each month, we invite career experts to share their top career related tips and advice.
As a carnival host, I organize the posts so that you can find what you need quickly and give you a snap shot of each author’s content. Each blog title is linked to the article so that you can read and visit their site. If you like what you read, help promote the article through your favorite social channel – LinkedIn, Twitter, Google +, Facebook or email it. When you share their articles it is a way to communicate your appreciation.
5 Things military retirees and vets get to decide about their career now
As you decide what you’d like to do for a living in your next job, the type of company that you’d like to work for and the location and salary that your skills can warrant, you have made a start in answering some very important questions for your career outside of the military. You are a capable, confident and interested career changer. Companies are dying to have former military persons on their team. It is incumbent on you to decode your military experiences into readable, understandable skills that can be appreciated by the civilian human resources representatives. As you begin to merge through, keep in mind that your job seeking materials (resume, cover letter, bio, web resume, LinkedIn profile, association membership and networking) is a tool that you will use to network to locate the hidden job market. These are jobs that are not advertised but are certainly waiting to be offered to you build relationships and demonstrate your skills, accomplishments and values to your network.
Does your resume anticipate where you are going?
Resumes need to tell a calculated, specific story. Hiring officials appreciate it when job seekers take the time, energy and investment to understand who they are as a professional and communicate that to them. You will be able to gauge if your resume does this by the number of interviews that you have arranged after submitting your resume within thirty days. If you do not get an invitation to chat – your resume is deleted and you receive the ‘thank you for your application – at this time we will not invite you to continue in the application processes’.
