Nurture your network!

Your Linkedin profile is more than a web page; it is your face, your mouth and your brain on the Internet, especially when you are looking for a job!

If you read the past articles, you now understand:
why you should not be afraid of social media,
how to create a complete Linkedin profile,
why displaying full contact information is essential,
– and finaly, how to build your professional community.

This is once they accept your connection request that the real job starts. And the real job is nurturing and optimizing this new growing network!

He saw me. He liked me… He called me!

Hello everyone!

I hope your week started well. Ready for the second part of my story? Here it comes!

As I wrote last week, I was contacted by a recruiter after he saw my profile on Linkedin and Viadeo (French platform). Why did he call me and how was he able to do so?

If he had not been able to call me right away, with my page open right in front of him, I am pretty sure he would just have closed the page without even trying to send me an email.  This is why being public and reachable is essential.

For those of you who created and completed their profiles on professional online networks, here are today’s steps: being public and reachable!

But wait, there’s more!
