Tips to get an "edge" in an employer market 👏


3 important things job seekers can do to give themselves an edge in an employer market: 

1️⃣ Apollo.io + Lavender πŸ’œ

Sign up for Apollo for free to get some verified emails of hiring managers at companies you want to work for or applied to a role. Send them a note, a video, etc. 

And use Lavender for free to analyze some of your emails, make improvements, and get better responses to your outreach. 

2️⃣ Join relevant communities (both free and paid). 

There are great communities for your industry, profession, and interests. Many companies and recruiters are hiring and posting jobs there, which makes it easier for you to strike up a conversation and set up interviews faster. 

Tech Workers Club is a perfect example, with 20k+ members getting access to jobs, resume and career workshops, networking, and more. Use REMOTE15 for $15 off your first year. 

But there are others out there in your specific field too. Get active in these, as you never know what opportunities might be there or where the networking can take you. 

3️⃣ Clean up your LinkedIn profile and utilize all the settings you can. 

For most people, they let their profile details and content lapse. Then you scramble to update when needed. 

Give it a dedicated refresh and review it on some recurring basis. Everything from profile picture, banner image, your headline, about summary, experiences and the outcomes of your work, skills on profile and experiences, if you are open to work, etc.
