It is hard for job seekers to get a foot in the door by using conventional means. LikedIn provides a way to use relationships to do just that
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
In this competitive job market, job seekers need to stand out from the competition. Utilizing social networking websites and video resumes can really give job seekers an edge in their search. As social networks gain in popularity, job seekers need to learn how to leverage them and discover how to get "inside" connections at their target companies when they're looking for a new job. With the launch of VideoHeadHunter.net, the Staff Financial Group teaches candidates the power of LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com) and how to connect with people on the "inside" of companies and how to expand their network of contacts.
When Gus Cawley, President of Staff Financial Group, a specialized Atlanta financial staffing firm, began using video resume technology to help candidates get more exposure in the marketplace, he thought there must be other technology tools that could help job seekers market themselves. After attending a technology conference, Gus learned how to unlock the door into companies and to expand his network beyond his own personal contacts. He quickly realized that anyone in a job search needed to know how to get on the inside of a company.
"It is hard for job seekers to get a foot in the door by using conventional means. LikedIn provides a way to use relationships to do just that" Cawley said. "And let's face it--by applying on-line through a company's website you may become just another resume buried in the stack of hundreds. Wouldn't it be nice to have a way into a company through a relationship from someone in your network?"
VideoHeadHunter.net provides members with step by step instructions through the use of short "how to" videos. Now, job seekers can learn the secrets of how to build a network of thousands of people at hundreds of companies in order to assist job seeking candidates with their job search. LinkedIn strengthens and extends an individual's existing network of trusted contacts.
"As the job market gets more competitive you will see an increase in the use of technology including tools like LinkedIn and video resumes by jobseekers that are looking to get an edge over their competition," Cawley said.
