A friend showed me About.me this week. What a great site and a way for everyone to have their own splash page. This is a great new site that allows the person to display their background, specialities and contact information. (My page is here)
Job Seekers – Recruiting is evolving and we search the internet for candidates before we even put ads on the job boards. Why not have your background, specialities and contact information all in one place, easier for us to contact you? In a paragraph or 2 explain your background and tell your story. Everyone has a story and you need to tell yours. As a Job Seeker you should make it as easy as possible for recruiters and hiring managers to find you and contact you.
Recruiters – We are a dime a dozen, there are recruiters everywhere. I try to differentiate myself to my client companies and the people who I represent. This helps me do just that. This gives them a background of me and how to contact me. I plan on using this as a personal brand tool. Not all recruiters are the same and work the same. I want everyone to know what to expect from me and what I expect from them, if I am their recruiter.
Question – What do you do to separate yourself from the pack?
