What’s the Best Way to Get Hired for a Job?
Q. Between LinkedIn, job boards, recruiters and company websites, which is the best way to find a position?
A. The correct answer is none of the above.
I got this question asked of me and started laughing to myself because it indicates that this person really doesn’t know what they’re doing.
You see, ultimately with LinkedIn, yes, you can be a magnet for organizations. You have to SEO your profile. You’ll have to have skills that are demonstrable in your profile. You’ll need a track record of success and keyword optimize your profile page.
Company websites. Job boards. Same issue. You run into the applicant tracking system. Why would you ever want to apply for a job through an applicant tracking system?
Recruiters. Usually, don’t know if this one is competent, do you? You don’t know if they are trustworthy.
All four avenues are not really desirable.
What’s the best way to find a job question? Networking.
