As you resolve to look for a new job in 2015, make sure you have all the tools you need to make it efficient and effective. Is your resume fresh and compelling? Is your LinkedIn profile optimized? Have you downloaded all relevant job search apps to your smartphone? Are you tweeting? Employers will spend more time and money on mobile and social media this year in an effort to find and recruit talent. Make sure you mobilize your job search so you can be found.
LinkedIn and Indeed have iOS and Android apps to help make your job search easy and accessible. You have a lot going on and these apps allow you to use your small bursts of downtime during the day to execute your search. Waiting for your oil change? Train delayed? On your lunch break? There are a dozen opportunities throughout the day to check out these apps and keep on top of new job postings.
If you don’t yet have a Twitter account, start one and download the app. Follow employers, associations, executive recruiting firms and industry experts. Post tweets that demonstrate your genius using these best practices. Did you know you can also tweet your resume?
Bottom line, most of your favorite job search sites and social media platforms all have apps for your smartphone. Mobilize your job search in 2015 to make the most of it. Good luck!
