You Can Showcase Your Digital CV on the CareerinPM Platform
When was the last time you updated your traditional CV or received a call from an employer because of a paper-based CV you submitted a long time ago?
A lot of job seekers in Nigeria still don’t understand the value of creating an optimised and updated digital CV. They still focus so much on moving from one place to another submitting their traditional CVs. It’s not a bad idea though but most times those CVs end up in the trash cans or get misplaced.
“Social channels are some of the best ways to show potential employers the results and evidence which back up what you say during your application. It’s what we want to see.” – Lauren Gambler, HR department at Jellyfish
Nowadays, recruiters and employers are now moving towards digital hiring or online recruiting models because it streamlines their hiring process and offers them updated data on potential candidates. It’s also easier for them to store and retrieve digital CVs than traditional CVs.
A candidate’s digital CV is more than a CV. It’s an accumulation of every information or data that an employer or recruiter can find online about the candidate. Most employers now Google candidates and follow them on various social media networks to learn more about them. They are also getting more interested in proactive candidates who are showcasing their personalities, skills, interests and thought processes through creative ways.
“Twenty years ago, the resume was a piece of paper. Now, it is a collection of all [candidate] data that can be found online, like participation in online communities, conferences and meet-ups. Recruiters can assess whether a person will fit, and learn if he or she has the right skills for a job.” – Jon Bischke, CEO of Entelo
Creating a Powerful Digital CV
Creating a powerful digital CV is not about having a dormant profile on each of the top social media networks and it’s beyond just uploading your CV on a job board. It’s about having an updated, well-written, optimised, well-focused and ACTIVE profile. If you can manage just 2 or 3 profiles, go for it as you don’t need to be everywhere, online. Your data also need to match across all your social profiles.
“Tools such as Facebook and Twitter enable employers to get a glimpse of who candidates are outside the confines of a resume or cover letter. And with more and more people using social media, it’s not unusual to see the usage for recruitment to grow as well.” – Rosemary Haefner, chief human resources officer of CareerBuilder
