نصائح لبناء هوية إلكترونية قوية لزيادة فرصك في الحصول على وظائف

1. احرص على استكمال ملفك ومعلومات سيرتك الذاتية على مواقع التوظيف الالكترونية كأخطبوط

يزداد التنافس في التقديم للوظائف عبر مواقع التوظيف الإلكترونية كأخطبوط، فأنت من بين مئات أو حتى آلاف المتقدمين الراغبين بالحصول على نفس الوظيفة. وسيرتك الذاتية هي التي تميّزك عن المتقدمين الآخرين والمسؤولة عن وصولك إلى المقابلة، لهذا عليك الاهتمام بسيرتك الذاتية خاصةً عند التقديم للوظائف عبر الإنترنت.


ومن الجدير بالذكر بأن عملية اختيار الشخص المناسب للوظيفة عبر مواقع التوظيف الإلكترونية ليست كما تعتقد، حيث لا يطّلع مدراء التوظيف على كل سيرة ذاتية على حدى، بل يعملون على تصفيتها وفقًا لمتطلبات محددة وكلمات بحث رئيسية.

لا تشعر بالإحباط إن لم تحصل على الوظيفة التي تطمح إليها بعد، واستثمر وقتك في تجديد شكل ومحتوى سيرتك الذاتية!
