Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 17, 2006
Over a fifth of the Fortune 500, including top companies such as Microsoft, Pfizer and Sony, use online people search services, such as Ziggs and Zoominfo, to find and recruit professional candidates for the positions they seek to fill, according to CNN Money.
Savvy job seekers today are beginning to recognize that recruiters, hiring managers and more conduct searches for candidates on the Web, to identity new candidates or to learn about existing candidates. As a result, a job seeker’s online presence continues to increase in importance as a professional necessity.
Experts at Ziggs, an online directory of global professionals, say that even when one is not actively seeking a job, it’s important to maintain an online professional presence to ensure accuracy and control over one’s online image. Creating a free online profile is the most effective vehicle for this effort.
To give oneself a competitive edge online, Tim DeMello, Founder and CEO, Ziggs, makes the following recommendations:
1. Get listed online – with a professional profile in professional directories where recruiters hunt.
2. Get profiled online – professionals can differentiate themselves from other job seekers by creating a comprehensive online profile that gives a 3D view of themselves.
3. Get alerted online – professionals can take advantage of a new free service at Ziggs that emails search alerts every time a recruiter or potential employer reviews them online.
All three of these services are available at Ziggs for free. Ziggs offers a professional directory of millions of profiles of business people from thousands of companies located around the world.
For professionals who need online visibility for daily business or for the job hunt, Ziggs delivers that competitive edge. For professionals who are not actively seeking a job, but are open to being recruited for a better opportunity, Ziggs is the place to hang one’s online hat.
