10 Big Differences Between the Job Search of Today and Yesterday

10 Big Differences Between the Job Search of Today and Yesterday | Job Interviews | Scoop.it

Recruiters are now using Google and LinkedIn searches to find talent, instead of paying for job-board or talent databases, like they used to do. In fact, many companies are even mandating that every new application go through a Google screening process. So that means the first page of your Google results matter much more than they ever did before.

The problem is that what Google delivers on a search for your name isn’t regulated and is very difficult for the user to control. After all, background checks are very carefully regulated in order to avoid the types of misunderstandings happening now, online. Furthermore, Google’s algorithm changes several times a year. So what can you do about it?

 

The last thing you should do is ignore this reality. So the job seeker has two courses of action. First, you become a publisher of your own content and flood Google’s spiders with lots of great keyword rich content, my post on finding keywords. Second, you control the results on a Google search with Vizibility.com.

I love to ask the question, "Describe a mistake you made in the past few months and what did you learn from it?"  It is similar to the question that is in this article "Describe a time you failed."

 

What I look for in a candidate's response is someone who is honest, who has learned from the mistake, ....and most importantly has adapted their appraoch to prevent the same mistake from happening in the future. 

 

The question about the weakness is similar.  When a person is asked, "Describe one of your weaknesses."  Individuals who respond with statements such as an area of opportunity that I identified this year to work on is ____.  What I have done to develop in this area is ___, and the results are ___.

 

Gaps in employment are tricky.  My advice is to demonstrate that you have been making valuable use of your time.  It could be volunteering, taking care of an ill family member, developing your skills through continued education, etc.

 

I hope you find this article helpful.

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

A fantastic article and a MUST read for anybody looking to hire someone or anybody who needs to write a Position Description / Job Description.


The key is Performance based Job descriptions and rather than skill based descriptions, what does your new hire need to achieve in the role to be successful rather than what stuff do they need to know. 


Great advise from Lou Adler, advise which will make all of our lives easier.
