Q: As a job seeker, how can I "market" myself?
There are a few things you can do. Develop a one page professioanl profile. Not to be confused with a CV or resume, a profile will contain:
- A photo (headshot)
- short intro about yourself
- dot points covering the last 3 - 6 jobs you've had or projects you've worked on
- Your achievements
- Short list of quals, Awards and distinctions
- Volunteer work and interests. Use this to accompany your resume when applying for a job or sending an introduction out to a Recruiter or HR Manager. Just make sure it isn't just a repeat of your resume.
