These Tools Will Inject Life Into Your Career

Are you struggling to move forward with your career? You’re not alone. When people finish their university degree, it takes on average, one year for them to find a permanent position in their chosen industry. The good news is that there are ways to give yourself a helping hand. One possibility is to use some fantastic tools to either draw more attention to you or just give you a head start against some other candidates. So, what tools are we talking about here?

Social Media


Social media is vital for anyone who wants to get a to paid position in the modern business world. One of the first things employees do when they get your resume is search for you on social media. Hopefully, they like what they find. But to be honest finding something bad is better than them finding nothing at all. If employers can’t find any information about you online, they will a) assume you are inactive or b) assume you don’t have any industry contacts. They might also think that you are remaining hidden for a reason. None of these ideas are going to benefit you when applying for a job. So, make sure you have as many professional social media accounts up and running as possible. The main one to focus on would obviously be Linkedin. This works as a digital career history for employees and can lead to you being headhunted. That way, you don’t even have to search for the job yourself.

Resume Builders



If you are trying to create your own resume without any help, you will already have a handicap. Other applicants will have used resume builders to ensure that their CV looks professional, stylish and eye catching. With a resume builder, you can make sure that you have a killer CV that looks like it has been designed by someone who knows what they’re doing. The design can also help you highlight certain aspects of who you are such as your unique selling point and bring attention to them. It’s also best to pay for a resume builder as well. There are lots of free resume builders that you can use online. The problem is that everyone’s going to try this and as such your resume will end up looking the same as hundred other CVs that have been sent into the company.

Log Into Blogging


Last but not least, you should think about setting up a blog for yourself online. It can be useful for an industry that you’re thinking about entering into. But obviously, it’s going to be particularly important for those hoping to find a position in the entertainment industry or creative sectors. A blog allows you to share more information about who you are and what you can offer. It also demonstrates initiative, and that’s one of the key traits that business owners are always looking for in new recruits.

Using these tools, you’ll find that your application makes it’s way to the top of the pile, and you get through the struggle of finding your dream position.
