Are you a Wallflower on LinkedIn?

Stop being a wallflower. Our last blog article we discussed innovative ways to job search in 2015. This article will go into how to have your LinkedIn profile stand out from the whitenoise.

Written by Lilly Segura

By now we are all pretty familiar with social media and the ways it allows us to communicate with one another. Thanks to various websites we can now reach all corners of the earth and share information with the click of a mouse. Social media websites can not only be used for sharing the latest pictures of your cute new puppy but you can also use your profile pages to get noticed by employers. For tips and tricks on revamping your resume click here. There are a great deal of ways in which you can tweak your profile (or profiles) in order to get your name out there as well as get more traffic on your pages. Posting your resume on career builder and or monster are great ways to begin but there are other websites you can also use to your advantage.

 

Your Picture

A professional picture is very important and taken seriously on linked in. Make sure you post a picture from a work function, the latest company conference, or anything where you are dressed professionally (or at least decent). You might want to hold off on posting pictures of you and your silly friends at the local watering hole aka the local bar. Unless of course you are looking to land a bartender position.

Your Profile Page

At first glance your linked in page can seem like a professional online profile– which it is! Treat your page like a second resume and be sure to include as much information as possible. Use your current job description as well as a job description for the type of role you are looking to land as inspiration for your content. Google job descriptions and look at what types of qualifications and skills are required for the job you would like. LinkedIn is also a vast database for employers. Think of the site as a search engine and think about the key terms you use when searching for job postings, chances are employers are putting the same terms in their searches.

Don’t be afraid to be humorous or inject your personality into your profile. When scouring through hundreds of resumes all day it is refreshing to come across a resume in which candidates list their hobbies and or activities outside of work. If you make your own beer and like to go to star trek conventions every year put that on your resume! You never know, your next boss or hiring manager might be an even bigger Trekkie than you are.

Connections

Connections are to Linked in as friends are to Facebook. On Facebook having a great number of friends is a reflection of your popularity; on linked in your network/connections create connections to the people they are linked to as well. Linked in works in degrees. The more people you add the more traffic you will receive on your page because by adding one person you also gain their connections, and in a way their connection’s connection’s as well. Add everybody and build a professional network!

Following groups and companies are also excellent ways to get noticed. You’ll be able to find out about the company culture, as well as the characteristics of individuals whom are already working at the company. You can also get to know all the right people such as Hiring Managers, Supervisors, and HR. All of this information can be useful to you when contacting the right people online.  You can even see how and if your friends are connected to a company that you have perhaps been eying or are interested in applying too. Don’t forget about the way that someone can help you in real life as well. If a friend is connected speak with them about what you can do to get in and perhaps they can also assist you by speaking to the right people. A connection on LinkedIn can be a connection in real life.

Activity

Liking, posting, and sharing things on linked in is also a great way to drive traffic to your page. Not only do your connections see it on their feeds, but when they like or comment, their friends can look at what you post as well. Make sure your comments are positive and professional. Employers are looking for energetic and positive employees. The last thing you want is to come across as a Debbie Downer or a trouble maker.

 

There are endless resources available to you right at your fingertips and it is a shame not to use them. Linked in has replaced the need to walk into a place with your resume or to call places for information on their HR departments. LinkedIn is an online resource but it is also useful as a short cut in real life. Big things can happen for you if you take full advantage of these tools.  Make sure to keep all these points in mind and happy hunting!

Social Media Job Hunting

Written by Nick Curtin

You are on the hunt for a job. You have reached out to recruiters, searched through the job boards, and scoured website’s career sections, but have you tried social media job hunting? Each passing day social media platform’s influence not only grows within our personal lives, but the business sector as well. The professional world looks toward social media to increase brand recognition, drive inbound traffic, improve customer insight, increase conversion rates, and most importantly humanizing their company. As such, more and more companies are leveraging their established positions in the social world to post their job openings. So ask yourself, have tried job hunting with any of the platforms below?

LinkedInLinkedin

Numero uno on the list for job hunting through social media – it is a professional networking site after all. LinkedIn doubles as a stage to promote your business acumen and a search engine for job advertisements. Be certain that on your profile that you have listed all of your experience, skills, education, and philanthropic activity. Food for Thought: Search other professional’s profile for a position you want to be in the immediate or near future and then look at their career path. Does it mirror yours? Maybe you have to alter your path.

 

Twitter

Twitter

Tweets, retweets, hashtags, hashtags, and hashtags…over the past few years twitter has been refining and improving their search, such that it has now become a very reliable and easy to use tool. Your job search can start by typing in desirable keywords into the search engine or exploring companies twitter pages. Hint: Many companies favorite their important tweets so their followers can track and advertise their openings without having to constantly repost it. Also, it cannot hurt to tweet out that you are in fact search for the job. Additionally, write a concise and informative description for your profile listing desirable job keywords.

 

 

FacebookFacebook

Facebook is often viewed in a much more personal light; however, having said that, companies have several sections on their ‘Pages,’ many of which include a career section or under their notes they list open positions. Also, while you are on the prospective company page write a complementary post on their wall that includes your desire to one day join their team. Very similar to the other platforms, you can always crowdsource opinions by posting on your wall about your job search.

 

Pinterest

Pinterest

It is the Pinner’s of Pinterest for the pin, I mean win, well fourth place really, but nevertheless has become another avenue for exploring job openings. Companies are creating Career Section Boards where fellow pinners cannot only find out about job openings, but share with their pools as well. There are also aggregate boards that attempt to capture all the job openings and sort them accordingly.

 

 

Instagram

Instagram

Unconventional, yet creative, users can utilize the Instagram search engine for pictures pertaining to open job orders. You may also try taking a picture of your resume/creative picture and post it @companies you would like to work for in the future.

 

 

 

Snapchatsnapchat

Really, really unconventional. Some major corporations have snap chat accounts. Send them your 10 second elevator pitch about why you should work for them and post to the general public so we can all enjoy your brave approach.

 

 

Go forth! Invade all social media platforms with your job hunting strategy – after all you now have the knowhow – turn it into positive action!

 

Good luck on your social media job hunting!

The Job Hunting 2015 Revision

Written by Nick Curtin

Job hunting 2015 style is a little different than it was 10 years ago. You may have posted your resume online and as the weeks go by your left wondering, “Why don’t I have awesome job offers sitting in my inbox already?” Posting your resume online is no longer enough to get the job you want, only to get the job that pays the bills. In order to avoid merely shouting into the void and to have the job market universe recognize your existence you have to build your brand. Yes, that is right, you are now a brand and you should be marketing yourself accordingly.

 

Platform Consistency

Your presence online occupies more than just the website that has your resume. Think about Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and LinkedIn. While you are job searching you want to use the same profile picture for all of these accounts. Also, it is important that all of the ‘About Me’ and information you are sharing in aligned with all your other platforms. Brand consistency builds brand credibility and allows you to share yourself on another level with an employer.

Professionalism

If a company reaches out to you and you are not interested, let them know. Do not just leave them out in the wind and while you are emailing your appreciation, but lack of interest, invite to connect with them on LinkedIn. Make your professional world a smaller one. In life it is good to have options and the more bridges in your network the better the options.

Resume

Make sure your resume looks great. Do not pay an exuberant amount of money to have someone do it for you, there are plenty of workshops and tools online that can help you create your resume. Another tactic can be to Google “Award Winning Resumes” and copy formats that resonate with you. Your resume will never get you hired, a company hires a person not a paper; however, a resume introduces the features of your brand, it gets your foot in the door, so make it a strong foot.

Keywording

When a recruiter or hiring manager finds your resume or LinkedIn, they got there by keywording. Typing words in the search engine that they feel are important for their potential candidate to have on the profile/resume – these words range from soft skills, specific software, standards, industries, etc. The point being, whatever field of expertise, research the keywords that are often used within it and incorporate that into your resume and social media platforms (platform consistency). The brands with the right words often find the ears and eyes to take them in.

Launching a Website

What better way to aggregate all the information about yourself than a website dedicated to your brand. There are many sites that can help you build them for free. Having a website increases your “searchablilty” via the major search engines, thereby increasing your chances of being found by a prospecting company.

 

Digging

Job boards are becoming increasingly expensive, so many companies have taken to their own websites adding career sections and placing job openings there. You know your brand, therefore you should know what companies can best utilize your brand. So you are going to have to start digging for future company. Google “best companies to work for,” or “strongest performing companies.” You may also utilize sites like Glass Door that act as a Yelp for reviewing a company (although take ratings with a grain of salt, as they are entirely subjective). Also, reach out to your LinkedIn network or look at successful people’s career paths on LinkedIn and implement that into your plans.

Embrace YOU!

Whether that means your hobbies, passions, philanthropic pursuits – make sure that is evident on all of your platforms (I would not advise placing those items on your resume, but that’s just my opinion). You are more than just a worker bee and most companies do not want to just hire a worker bee. They want a real person, so show them what you are all about! A brand with personality is much easier to identify and connect with as a manager/recruiter.

 

The job hunting industry has gone through several revolutions into evolutions over the past 15 years. Hopefully, following these key aspects into building your personal brand will help get you that job! Be sure to check out our openings, along with our Facebook and Twitter.

Taking a Chance on a Contract

Taking a Chance on a Contract Written by Lilly Segura

Contrary to popular belief a contract position can be a great opportunity. Traditionally, most job seekers prefer a position where they can remain with the company permanently. However, there are some instances when a contract position can be beneficial to your career, or simply beneficial in particular places in life. Many companies like to employ temporary work for various reasons such as special projects and peak periods.The following are reasons why you should definitely keep an open mind when conducting your job search.

 

Contract Positions are Excellent for Entry Level

Many clients like to hire fresh young faces out of college with appropriate degrees and extra curricular activities. A contract position that would last around 1-2 years is perfect for entry-level candidates. This is an excellent way to get your foot in the door with a company that would get you familiarized with industry terms, techniques, applicable laws, and standards.

When You are In-between Permanent Positions

Job seekers typically hope to find direct and long-term employment. However, there are employers who are looking to hire professionals for special projects. These projects generally call for specialized skills and offer the opportunity to become cross-trained and involved within various departments. This would be an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about the field that you will be working in and will help you understand the work of others. It is important that you do not rule out an opportunity simply because it is short in duration. It is better that you take a position rather than having a six-month gap in employment. You may even end up with a permanent position!

When You are Looking to Make a Transition

A contract position is an excellent way to make a transition from one industry to another. Sometimes companies have an immediate need and if they do not find the right candidate, they begin to look at similar roles in different industries. This could definitely be your shot at landing a role that would help you transition into a different field.

 

When you only consider permanent positions you are limiting your possibilities. Take a chance and apply for contract positions as well! When the right fit comes along, you should definitely take the chance and make that career move. Happy hunting!

Greg’s Top 10 Rules For the Job Hunter

Written by Greg Johnson

You see it on the news every day. You hear it on the radio and in conversation at the coffee shops. You do not have to go very far to hear negative news about the world and US economy. But the problem is, everyone is so focused on the millions of Americans that are unemployed that they aren’t looking at the 94% of Americans that DO have jobs.

With over 320 million people living in the US and the unemployment rate just under 6%[1] – what makes you different from the millions of other people looking for work? There are jobs are out there and this article is going to equip you with the arsenal necessary to make sure that you stand out from the crowd.

 

Greg’s Top 10 Rules

 

Rule #1:

Decide TODAY that you are going to get a job and eliminate all other options. While filing for unemployment might seem like the smart thing to do, more often then not it kills your drive to get a job. Once your drive is dead, you will stay unemployed longer, which makes your chances of getting a job decrease dramatically with the passing of time.

Rule #2:

Change the way you look at your situation. You are not unemployed. Your new job is getting a job. Spend as much or more time replacing the lost job than you spent at the job you lost! Have an attitude that if you have to spend 40+ hours a week doing that, you will get a job!

Rule #3:

Even if you have to take a job you consider beneath you, it is better to stay connected in the workforce with less pay than disconnected from the workforce with unemployment benefits (see step #1)

Rule #4:

Do not listen to the hype and gossip that no one is hiring! There are always companies looking for hard working, solutions oriented people that can help their company grow. While there are millions of people without work, most companies have not gone out of business. Keep the attitude that you will find a job and stay away from other negative, unemployed people because they could contaminate your attitude.

Rule #5:

Do not rely solely on your resume. Just because you have your resume on CareerBuilder, Monster, Dice, or any other number of job sites, a resume will not get you a job. A resume will never get you a job. Companies hire people, not resumes.

Rule #6:

Do not rely solely on others to get you your next job. Staffing companies are an incredible source to place your resume in front of hiring managers; however, whether or not the recruiter can help you – the task stills falls to you to get your job. Take matters into your own hands and remember Rule #2

Rule # 7:

The fortune is in the follow up. Make sure you are always following up; whether that is with a recruiter or directly with the company. This communication will make you stand out immediately because it shows that you are excited and that you actually want the job. After an interview take 5 minutes to write a thank you email (not a letter because speed is crucial).

Rule #8:

In the interview, do not just talk about what you have done in the past – talk about what you can do to help the company grow and achieve their goals. Sell yourself and your skills.

Rule #9:

Never. Talk. Smack. There is no bigger turn off to a hiring manager than someone who is negative about their past employers or bosses. On that same note, do not tell them a story about how you were let go because your boss or co-worker had it out for you. You do not want to ever mention anything negative about your last position.

Rule #10:

Get Engaged! Check the Apollo website and connect with us through our social media profiles regularly because we are ALWAYS posting new and exciting positions throughout the United States.

How to Negotiate Salary

Written by Nick Curtin
How to negotiate salary is a process that everyone should learn and know how to do properly because we will be negotiating for it our entire professional lives. We will go through the 5 key aspects of negotiation: knowing your value, knowing the market, research, impression, and dealing with offers/counter offers.

Know Your Value

Everyone wants to be a millionaire, but to go into a negotiation with that mentality is irresponsible and unrealistic. Before you enter into any discussion about salary, know how much your services are worth to that client/company. Knowing your value will provide a foundation where you are able to ask for more and keep you from settling for a lesser offer.

Know the Market 

Part of knowing your value to a company, is understanding what the market is willing to pay for those specific talents. Search the  job boards and salary sites, reach out to people in  your network to gauge their opinion, and read financial news to acquire how strong is the overall market.

Research the Company

The internet is filled with information, so leverage it.  Research the company/client through Glassdoor – a site that provides reviews on a business from past/present employees on company culture, salary, and overall direction. Expound from there, utilize a search engine to scourer all the media articles – what have they been up to, have they won awards, have they treated their employees/customers properly, what are their future exploits, etc. Sift through the employees via LinkedIn – go over their career paths, responsibilities, and time duration.

Impression 

When you are in that room. I am not talking about this room, I am talking about THAT room. The door is shut with your potential supervisor positioned across from you, staring into your eyes and firing a litany of “Forbes Best Interview Questions” in your direction. Yet, even with their questions and their beady eyes starting into yours – you are as chill as a cucumber. You have a grammatically-correct and beautifully designed resume, you are in your best attire, you played your pump-up jam on your drive (cue Katy Perry), you already read “Forbes Best Interview Questions,” and most importantly you read Apollo’s “How to Negotiate Salary.” Two more tips for a great impression: 1. Always hold that firm hand shake. 2. When looking at your interviewer – always look them in the eyes and when you do so,  switch the focus of your sight from one eye to another. This shows that your more attentive and interested in what the other party is saying. (It’s science, Google it)

The Offer and the Counter 

Always ask them and make them give you the offer. i.e. “What are you willing to offer me for my future services to your company?” If they attempt to side-step and ask you what you are looking for, then clearly there is room to operate within the salary. To pivot it back to them you could say,”I appreciate your interest in my opinion on your salary structure, but it’s now about what I want, it’s about what your company can offer a man/woman of my talent.”  So comes the offer and now the ever pleasant-counter offer. If it is below your value then the counter is the obvious next step; however, if they have met or exceeded your estimated value you may feel awkward or uneasy about countering. Always counter. The worst that happens is the amount offered is all the company budgeted and you decide to take it. The best that happens is you make more money and you show your interviewer that you know your worth and you are willing to back it up.

Your Job Search Could Be Maligned By Your Resume

Your Job Search Could Be Maligned By Your Resume

Written by Nick Curtin

In today’s job search, people seeking employment are judged by their digital presence. This presence covers a myriad of areas, but is mainly encompassed by your resume. Whether it is posted in a job aggregator, job board, or emailed into human resources – that digital piece of paper will be scanned, scrutinized, and settled in 60 seconds. The resume is a double-edged sword – it can be the key or the obstruction to the doors of opportunity. In 2014, there are some key aspects to keep in mind before sending out a resume: location, key wording, grammatical errors, technology, achievements, and formatting.

 

Location

Every open space on a resume is a valuable piece of real estate. Take advantage of it! Do not bother with your address or the address’s of your places of work. These are often only negating factor, as it will be ASSUMED that certain job sites are too far of a commute for the individual. In my experience, I expect that when a candidate applies for a position, they know where the job site is located and are prepared for the commute. Therefore, do not give a recruiter a chance to deny you based on your location. If you are a qualified candidate, the unknown location will only fuel them to follow up with you.

Key Wording

Before you hit the ‘Apply’ button be sure that you have incorporated the job description within your resume. Not only should you have read the job description you are applying to, but  other company’s descriptions of similar positions as well. Then use their key words against them and immerse them within your resume.  This tactic is especially important when you are posting the resume on a job board. The more industry related keywords you use in your resume/profile, the more traffic that will be driven to it.

Grammatical Errors

How can you say you are ‘detail oriented’ if your resume is abound with grammatical errors and nonsensical phrases. I have worked with many hiring managers that will throw out your resume on the first error.  Your resume is an extension of yourself.  Have it reviewed by your family, peers, colleagues, etc. Opinions are like butts elbows we all have them. You do not have to heed everyone’s opinion, but the important part is that you are now cognizant of many points of view dealing with your resume. Thereby allowing you to make informed decisions on the content.

Technology 

As technology goes, so does the world. We are obligated to be familiar with certain softwares as a foundation block for most position. Upon which, we build and familiarize ourselves with the specified technology that is incorporated within our given fields.  Be sure to list any all and technology that you were exposed to, along with your level of expertise. (You can gain degrees of competency for many software programs if you watch YouTube Tutorials on them – food for thought).

Achievements

As important as listing your duties for each job may be, writing out your achievements for each position is just as important. No matter how small, if you are proud of a contribution at your past employment, list it! Preferably, with data/numbers aligned with your achievements to reinforce it.. Recruiters/Hiring managers love numbers!

Formatting

Unless you are applying for a Graphic Designer position, we would recommend sticking with the traditional black typeface on a light sheet of paper. Furthermore, you should only use one size typeface throughout the whole resume (except for your name), emphasize your job titles – not the companies you worked at, and align everything to the left. Many, but not all, are taught to read left to right, thereby streamlining your resume to those natural tendencies will only aid your resume review.

 

There  may be different opinions on the key aspects of building a resume, but these 6 should provide a solid foundation for you to build upon. If you would like to debate any said points, please feel free to tweet at us or post on our Facebook. We would be more than happy to hear your opinions!

A Unique Interview Results in a Better Hire

A Unique Interview Results in a Better Hire

Written by Nick Curtin

A unique interview is the key to hiring a great candidate. Many employers make the unfortunate mistake of not utilizing the interview process to really get to know the interviewee.  Apollo works with each individual as they prepare to interview and prep him or her with the upcoming expectations. Most times, the hiring managers can become overly concerned whether or not the person is qualified for position. Understandably so; however, this candidate interviewing for the job is not a robot; they have feelings, beliefs, routines, future goals, etc. The interviewer must never underestimate the impact on a company from one individual – good or bad.  Therefore, as the interviewer, you should take the time to explore questions outside the qualification realm.  Specifically, you should explore questions related to self-improvement, behavioral tendencies, personality, and “turn-arounds” of classic questions. The English Journalist Lynn Barber best known for her interview prowess described that her best interviews were “– like the best biographies — should sing the strangeness and variety…” You heard it here, break away from the traditional and get to really know your interviewee.

 

Self Improvement

It is not enough that the candidate is capable of performing the job today. The person that is hired should want to increase their level of acumen within their field – continuously learning, keeping up with the latest trends, seeking certifications, etc.

Have you noticed any blind spots in our business and how would you improve or eliminate them? Assess candidate knowledge of your business and industry and business acumen with questions like this, while also looking for an honest approach.

What was the last class, seminar, course, or workshop you attended, and why did you take it? Do you plan on continuing your education within this field, if so, how? This reveals where candidates are in their level of commitment to keeping skills and knowledge up to date.

Behavioral

Oft times there are several characteristic descriptions on candidate’s resumes, take advantage of them and inquire about it. Not only will you be able to gather a keen understanding of their integrity, but you will learn how the candidate works as well.

Describe your system for planning and organizing your work? A candidate that maintains that they are a  ‘detail-oriented’ should be able to relate their process and direction quite seamlessly, whereas a less-organized person will take much longer, and provide a disjointed response.

When have you motivated others? If leadership is listed as a quality, then this question will drive right to the point where a person took the initiative and inspired others. A candidate should not only reaffirm that they are a leader, but the question should elicit a confident response that details the situation and how they led: whether from the middle, in the trenches, or leading the charge.

When have you changed someone’s mind about an idea you supported, but the other person did not? A person that states they are an effective communicator should be able to draw on some examples of persuasive endeavors or building bridges of collaboration between parties.

Personality

Every interviewee has on the model interview game face. In order to break the façade of perfection, you can enlist the assistance of the questions below.

  • What is the last movie you saw?
  • Tell me about your favorite book, movie, and game? Why does that sticks out to you? Tell me about a role model and why you look up to them?
  • What are your top three values?
  • If you could be doing anything, what do you do?

To discover a candidate’s true passions and interests, will allow the company to play to them in order to get the best out of the candidate.

Turn-around Classic Questions

Given the immense fountain of knowledge that is the Internet, most candidates will have reviewed the traditional interview questions and create premeditated answers for them. Therefore the following questions are classic questions with their very own spin them.

Start the Interview off with: Do you have any questions for me?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you tried really hard, but couldn’t accomplish your goal? Why did this happen and what did you do? (Old Translation: Describe a time that you failed?) This questions drives at one of the most important qualities a person can possess, perseverance.  As the hiring manager, you should be looking for a detailed response rather than a deflecting, mechanized answer.

Where don’t you want to be in five years? (Old Translation: Where do you want to be in five years?)

 

Keep in mind personalities and behaviors do not necessarily have to match that of yours or the current employees.  After all friction creates sparks so it is essential to analyze all the aspects that the interviewee will bring to your team and how it will mesh. When you integrate these 4 fields along with the qualification bit of the interview, you will have a much better understanding of the quality of candidate that sat before you.

What are the Fastest Growing Industries?

Written by Nick Curtin

 

What are the fastest growing industries? In 2014, there is an average job growth rate nationwide of 10.8 percent among all industries. Slowly, but surely America has been climbing out of the recession of 2009; however, there are some industries in our economy that have taken off with growth rate percentages over 20 percent.

Apollo Professional Solutions is not only responsible for putting Americans to work and providing quality service to our clients, but also keeping a weather eye on the mercurial nature of the job market. This past year we have noticed huge hiring increases in each of the following industries:

 Healthcare

As the populations continue to grow and more people have access to affordable health insurance the demand for jobs within the field has soared. Specifically, we have noticed a rise in hospital administration, management, customer service, and suppliers. These people “behind the curtain” are playing a critical role in the healthcare environment making sure everything is running smoothly.

Project Management

The recession of 2009 caught a lot of companies off guard and exposed the inefficiency of their operations. There has been a great rise for project managers to come into companies and ensure efficiency, producing under budget, all while meeting deadlines.

 Pharmaceuticals

In accordance with the rise of healthcare professionals and affordable healthcare has granted access of more medicine to a greater part of the population. Not to mention, there is the constant evolution and progression of science breaking new grounds in medicine.

Information Security Analyst (ISAs)

Information security has been in the headlines the past couple months, or lack there of because people have been having their information hacked. Individuals and business’s alike are at risk and that has led to the rise in hiring ISAs to acquire as much protection as possible.

When an industry’s job growth is exponentially increasing, the qualified candidate pool will discernibly begin to decrease in size. Job seekers within these markets have more opportunities than ever and they will take their time to find the best one. Therefore, as important as it is to provide solid offers, it is paramount that companies have a way to find and source qualified talent.

Make no mistake; it is a race to find the top talent and most times the company that gets to the candidate first will win. To get a leg up on the competition, all a business would have to do is contact Apollo here.  Each and every recruiter at Apollo is a treasured commodity as they share in the value of submitting qualified candidates to our clients while leveraging their expertise in varying fields. We take great pleasure in contributing to the success stories of both our candidates and clients.
