April 3, 2018

In Careerbuilder.com’s website, Adrienne Erin writes about how Twitter can help future employees find a job.

Many employers are snooping around future employee’s social media sites. One sure-fire way of finding a job can be good branding, and by advertising your standing and prominence in your field. Making a list of people you would like to follow helps potential employers see the people and popularity you are pursuing. Another point to note is to share great content. In addition, while doing so make sure to add your thoughts and ideas to what you have read. Share breaking news related to your industry and articles of what you have been reading. This shows that you are continually learning and growing. The third and final point is to establish a following. This indirectly establishes you as a leader in your industry.

Re-entering the Workforce After a Long Break

February 8, 2018

Getting back to work after a break in your career can be quite daunting.  Here are a few tips that may help you with your job search:

Research roles and companies as they are continually evolving. They may have changed over the period that you have been off from work. Updating one’s resume is another good thing to do. Many times we feel that we have not done anything while we were on a break from work.  However, try to include projects, volunteer work, or classes you have taken during that time on your resume. Another important tip is Network, Network and Network! Make sure to go to events within your industry. The website suggests sites like Meetup or Eventbrite for such events. The website also gives tips for navigating networking events. Also make sure that your family and friends are in the loop about your intentions to enter the workforce again. Last but not least, keep abreast of all the changes that are taking place in your industry. Read relevant books, articles, videos, blogs, and other industry-relevant resources.
