Questions on sourcing

  1. 1. Questions Frank AlanizMissouri Workforce Regional Liaison SLATEMCC
  2. 2. I have skills ~ Why don’t I have a job?
  3. 3. Rules of Job Searching Regardless of age, being out-of-date is a very common problem and not, fortunately, an insurmountable one. 1. Focus 1. One of today’s “problems” is too many opportunities! 2. How many of you are sending out more than 3 or 4 resumes a week? 2. Bring your “A” game 1. The way you handle this whole process of applying and interviewing for a job is viewed as an example of your work – which it is! 2. How many of you have Career Portfolios?
  4. 4. 1. Resume 1. Resumes have changed substantially with the availability of technology 2. How many of you have an object statement on your resume?2. Networking 1. Studies show that the person who is referred by an employee is hired 5 times more often than the stranger who simply applies 2. How many of you have a current LinkedIn profile?3. Be Visible 1. Being invisible is like an OUT-OF-DATE stamp on your forehead! 2. How many of you have “Google” yourself?4. Pay Attention 1. Pay attention to what is visible about your name when someone does a search. Workcoachcafe.com
  5. 5. What does Sourcing mean to me?
  6. 6. Chirag Nangia, CEO of Reppify With the advent of social media, companies have more information than ever on job candidates, and the process of evaluating those candidates can be lengthy. In the past, companies tried to determine candidate fit through their résumés. Today, employers perform web searches on candidates, learn more about them from social media, and examine their work samples.
  7. 7. Chirag Nangia, CEO of Reppify We do think the use of social media by employers will continue to be the trend; and while there will be instances of Facebook password requests of candidates by potential employers so they can examine their profiles for objectionable content, these will likely remain edge cases. Most employers will pursue intelligent policies that effectively leverage relevant information from social media, such as project work on an open-source engineering site, to select the top qualified candidates.
  8. 8. Chirag Nangia, CEO of Reppify Leveraging your network wherever possible is key. The average user on a network such as LinkedIn, for example, has around 200 connections. With hiring on the rise again, job seekers will need to use their connections to help get ahead of the competition and get through to those jobs where they are most qualified. Soon, this will also begin working in reverse – as employers adopt new technology and tools, those right jobs will begin to find you. Lisa Quast, Fobes Contributor Smart, strategic, and sometimes sassy career advice for women.

  10. 10. Recruiting by the numbers
  11. 11. Facebook Understanding Facebook  Facebook is the #1 Social Recruiting Source in 127 of 136 Countries.  As Facebook approaches 1 billion users globally, it’s estimated that 25% of the users are company/business pages.  Also, while the percentage of Facebook users are business might be relatively small (for the sake of argument, let’s say 25%), given the nearly 1 billion profiles, that would be almost 250,000,000 global business profiles.
  12. 12. Facebook Have you ever seen your own profile from a friends prospective?  Facebook has a feature that allows you do view your profile.  Profile Page: click on the image of the settings cog wheel with the downward pointing arrow  Click view as  On the next page, type in a friends name in the top left If your are uncomfortable with the information available, you can control your privacy settings here: www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=privacy
  13. 13. Facebook Set a reminder  Every thirty (30) days to make sure that your privacy settings are up to date. Why does this matter  25% employers have a policy of how their employees can represent themselves online.  People who need to make a decision about you -- whether that person a future employer, date or co-worker – maybe influenced by what they find online. Make sure your online reputation is yours!
