HOW TO DEMYSTIFY YOUR JOB SEARCH
Last time, we invited two recruiters for a transparent and intimate conversation on demystifying your job and internship search. We have summarized the webinar into 3 digestible points below!
1. LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF A RECRUITER
Tailor your LinkedIn profile with the relevant keywords and experiences your company or job you're applying is looking for.
For creatives, make sure your portfolio stands out. You can use one of these free resources to build your portfolio: Behance, Dribbble, and Carbonmade.
Your portfolio landing page has to be eye-catching. It is the make or break for recruiters!
2. BE A CULTURAL ADD, NOT A CULTURAL FIT
Another thing that is the most important is your soft skill. An outstanding portfolio but no professional attitude, it means nothing.
Be yourself! Be honest when asked about your experiences. Don't make up those strengths and weaknesses.
3. CREATE BOUNDARIES & BE INTENTIONAL
Set boundaries! Don't push yourself too hard when applying for jobs. Take breaks and time yourself.
It is important to be in the hustle culture, but always avoid burnout.
Quality over quantity. Instead of applying to 100 easy-apply jobs, try focusing on 10 jobs that you really like.
