Selling Yourself as a Job Seeker

Posted by Rob Riggins

How you present yourself is critical in a job search.


Typically the first point of contact you’ll have with a potential employer is through materials such as your resume, email, cover letters, etc.

Make sure these materials are clear, focused, truthful content, that is easy to read and error free.

Online Brand

Search your name online and know what recruiters may find when they search you. Put your best foot forward online, assuming a potential employer will see everything you do, and be consistent across your social media platforms.

Personal Presentation

First impressions matter, so make sure you are comfortable, prepared and appropriately dressed for the situation.

Think of yourself as en entire package for a potential employer. Sell yourself throughout the job search process, whether it’s your materials, online or in person.
