Snap up your ‘Dream Job’ this new year

02 Jan
A very happy new year to all of you from the Parietal gang. We wish you all lots of joy, health and success in this year. Talking of success, how about preparing yourself for that coveted job interview for your dream job? And when one talks of interviews and jobs, can resume be far behind? Its important to crack that perfect resume which will get you what you want. But hey, we are not talking about some dull , boring word document; its 2012 !! So here’s a brand new way to look at your resume.

The new Timeline profile format on Facebook has made it more job-search friendly than ever. It is effectively your resume. That’s right. From the giant cover image at the top to the chronological organization down the line, your Facebook profile is a resume for your life, not just your career.

With Timeline, employers can learn more about users by searching specific time frames and seeing how the details mesh together. Ultimately, Facebook is going to become the go-to site for more curious employers and clients. Personalized and manicured Timelines are simply going to be more attractive.

So how can you use the timeline to your advantage?

  • Organize your business contacts into a list so that they’re the only ones who can see your industry-specific content. Personalizing your profile to fit the crowd will make your Timeline look so much better.
  • Customize your timeline with a good enough cover photo. Pick one which works for everybody who check your profile.
  • Prioritize the information you think is important so that it can be seen by the right people.
So how are you going to optimize your digital resume?
