I remember 2009, in a course of Compensation and Benefits were proudly listed the “unique” benefits with which some organizations pampered their employees. Among the most fanciful, especially for certain fields of activity, was “work from home”. At the same time, in the world, many companies had already made a practice out of it, but in Romania, in order to be able to implement such a facility you needed some imagination to be able to accommodate first of all the legislative and then cultural aspect of working from home.
IT’S NOT JUST A RESUME
It’s 2020 and the importance associated with the traditional resume is decreasing. However, statistics are showing us that having a strong LinkedIn profile become more relevant nowadays as the number of users is continuously rising with a rate of 2 new members per second. In March the total number of users registered was 675 million with 70% coming outside of the US. From recent college graduates to senior-level experts, it is important to generate professional content as LinkedIn represents more than a platform to get a job. For example, it generates several opportunities for professional networking and building a brand that sells you. Time is the rarest resource we got and therefore just the thought of building a standout profile can lead to a headache. But it is not that complicated, and your professional experience can be related efficiently by following some tips & tricks. Allocate a specific time for working on your profile, an hour when you are not disturbed, and you can travel through your past in order to deliver an accurate and specific map of your professional development. Your mindset must be to always speak the truth! Find out what differentiate you from others and highlight your unique qualities and accomplishments, not duties. Try to show your reader the employer’s benefits.
What if the employer was a customer and you were the product. Why would the employer buy the product (yourself)?
