Jump Start Your Career With These Helpful Tips

May 18, 2016

What does it take to jump start your career?

If you’re thinking a stellar resume, a lot of networking and a degree in a desirable field, you’re on the right track. But if you want to stand out from the crowd, consider the useful tips in this infographic. For example, does your resume tell your story? Does it showcase who you are professionally and what you can do? Do your social media profiles put your best face forward, without anything negative that could reduce your chances of being hired?

To get noticed and boost your career, build an expert reputation online, through blogging and discussion. Show the world (and potential employers) what you know and why you’re the best at what you do. 80% of jobs come through networking, so network extensively, in-person and online. Start with friends and family and don’t be afraid to ask for referrals. Offer your help for free to get exposure and experience. Interact online in your field, but always be kind, as 70% of employers have rejected applicants due to online behavior.

When you get called for that interview, do your research before you go. Be confident, adept, and concise. And don’t forget to negotiate an offer, as 100% of employers expect to negotiate, yet only 25% of applicants try it.

Check out this infographic for even more advice on how to stand out and get noticed, no matter where you’re at in your career:
