CFCC CAREER DEVELOPMENT SERVICES CAN HELP WITH YOUR JOB SEARCH
Finding a job is a full-time job. It’s more than looking on-line. In fact, that is the least likely way to land a job! Remember, your first professional job may not be the “dream” job, but is launching you in the right direction. CFCC Career Development team members are available to assist with:
- Creating or revising your résumé
- Preparing for an interview
- Researching employers
- Gaining work-based experiences
- Reviewing your on-line presence
- Networking with professionals
- Strategically managing your job search
- Effectively using social media
USING LinkedIN TO HELP YOU NETWORK
Another site many employers will post openings is LinkedIN. When using this, remember it’s a business networking platform. So, keep it business – not social! A few tips when setting up your account. The “free” version is sufficient for many to get started.
- Upload a professional picture.
- Include accurate data that is edited for punctuation and grammar.
- Update it routinely when you add to your professional skills/experiences.
- Tap into the power of “who you know”…on LinkedIN.
