most of you
well you're good at what you do but
you're not good at the job search
process and that's where i come in in
that regard to my coaching so
again the big game hundred dot us
and schedule time for a free discovery
call now today's show is one where i
talk about or i respond to a question
can i submit my linkedin profile instead
of my resume
hope you find this helpful and given an
honest review wherever you listen to the
show subscribe share wherever you like
and we'll be back in just one moment
whenever i talk about flex jobs i want
to do the old music from batman
flex jobs okay i'll spare you the
singing and just say flex jobs is a site
with flexible employment opportunities
throughout the united states
you know it's a paid service
but it's a very good service for lots of
different types of work so use the link
in the show notes check out flex jobs
make your own decision about its value
to you i think you will find it very
helpful if you're looking for flexible
employment and we'll be back in just one
moment
can you submit your linkedin profile
instead of a resume or cv when applying
for a job
yes
if you're submitting a resume through
linkedin you can use your profile but
there's a problem with that and the
problem is your profile is like a
generic resume it's not tailored for the
specific job you're submitting it for
it's
you know it's a good profile i'm sure
you wouldn't be asking this question if
it was a bad one
but the problem is it's not targeted
this specific job you can modify it
before you submit it
but that modification has to stay in
place you can't just submit that
and then change it for the next job that
you're submitting it for
it remains a static thing that's
submitted
so
can it be used
yes is it ideal no
and maybe you're just lazy and you don't
want to submit a resume and do the
customization that will hopefully help
you actually get the interview
don't be lazy do the work
if you don't do the work you're not
likely to get the interview so yes you
save time but you could have saved even
more time by not submitting it because
it didn't make a case for your candidacy
and that what you could do for this job
that's normally the reason people get
turned down it's not that the resume got
there late it's that the resume doesn't
make a case for why they fit the job
so that's today's show i hope you found
it helpful and if you did here are a few
things i can do to help you with your
job search beyond simply being your
coach
first of all i've got a new book out
called the right answers to tough
interview questions it is like a
cookbook
with answers to
tons of interview questions that you're
going to be asked on interviews
and if you pair it up with my other new
book the ultimate job interview
framework they are a terrific pair of
books to help you with interviewing in
addition to a new service where you can
practice mock interviews
if you go to the big
u gamehunter.us

inexpensive like 99
where
we have mock interviews set up i'm going
to be adding more to it very soon but

then i can critique them and help you
perform better on them
