Upgrade your knowledge and skills

One of their first actions is to make sure your knowledge and skills match the requirements of a position you want. Therefore, you should update your profile to emphasise your strengths such as your working experience and your new skills which don’t need to be a part of your current job. They could be what you have learned, practiced, and achieved during your self-learning. Of course, it would be better if you can show recruiters the proof such as your trial projects or certificates.

Improve your digital footprint

In the technology era, your digital footprint can be the first impression for recruiters as well as employers. During the hiring process, your online activities which show your knowledge as an expert in your realm could be considered an important factor to make you stand out among the talent pool. It will be ideal for you to build your personal brand on the internet.

Grow your network

Don’t hesitate to connect to recruiters in some LinkedIn groups or at a professional event. They will reach out to you when they make sure they can bring you a great opportunity matching your experience and skills.

Be honest about yourself
