"How do the talent seeking companies and talented find one another?"


Replay from Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Group on LinkedIn conference call

Tips for Job Seekers

It's tough out there. But according to surveys, companies are seeking to boost their Spend Management talent in 2010. The top tips for seekers:

 

  • Keep your head up. It's not personal. It takes time to find the right fit and faced with an abundance of applicants, many companies are taking their time to make decisions.
  • Network, network, network. Stay in touch...even when you are gainfully employed.
  • You are now in sales. What makes you the best applicant for a particular job? Your resume and cover letter must answer that question.
  • You are also an expert. Social media platforms, from Ariba Exchange to LinkedIn Groups to Twitter, provide excellent opportunities to share your knowledge and build your brand. You can guarantee a potential employer is going to Google you before your interview. Wouldn't some well written content showing your expertise be a great thing for them to find?

 

Any other tips you'd add to the list? Post them is this thread and we'll share the best of them here.
