4 Tips on how to stand out from the rest of the job seekers?

With the start of a new year, there is no better time to make an exciting change towards a better career and a better life. Whether you’re looking for a new job or reached the interviewing process, one of the most important things you can do is stand out from the crowd. Competition for jobs is incredibly fierce these days, and getting noticed takes more than just having a stellar CV and cover letter. Here are some tips on how to make yourself stand out from the rest of the job seekers:

1. Network.

You need to network. The best way is through LinkedIn, but you can use Facebook or Twitter as well.

Use your network to find out about job openings and see what jobs are available, you might even end up with a job that isn’t advertised. Also, ask for introductions and referrals. You want to get to know people at places where you want to work – reach out! Keep in touch with people you’ve met through networking events, volunteer opportunities, etc. too – they might be able to help you down the road when it comes time for a job search.

2. Have a killer LinkedIn profile and use Twitter.


LinkedIn is an extremely powerful tool to use to network with other professionals in your industry, but it’s also an excellent resource for learning more about the companies you’re interested in. You can search for company pages, check out their employees’ profiles, and see how they demonstrate their skills. If you want to increase your chances of getting an interview after applying online, it’s worth checking out how these people use social media as well (because who doesn’t love following along with what their potential future coworkers are doing?). They may even be active on Twitter or Facebook posts that could give you insight into what life at that company would be like!


Twitter is another powerful tool for job seekers—especially if you’re applying for a position that requires customer service or sales skills! Check out any hashtags associated with the company name; this will usually lead back to other people tweeting about the same thing. You might learn more about what kind of work culture exists within this organisation; and if there seems like enough interest from other potential employees who share similar interests as yours do now too then maybe think twice before turning down an offer!

3. Work with a recruiter.

If you want to land a job, work with a professional recruitment company. Recruiters work closely with their clients that are hiring and you will have the upper hand If you’re looking for work at a specific company. Follow and do research on the recruitment company – you can identify who’s responsible for hiring for your dream job by looking at their feed or following them on social media.

If there are several people who fit the profile for the position, go ahead and send a direct message, If you get lucky enough to find someone who is currently hiring, they could even give you some advice on how best to present yourself in an interview!

Be consistent. You don’t have much time to get your foot in the door when applying for jobs these days as it is such a competitive industry, so make sure that any social media profiles or websites where people can see your work are up-to-date, professional and accurate at all times. If something changes in your life (a new job title or position), update those profiles immediately! It’s also worth spending some time making sure all of your information is correct on each site; if someone checks out one page on LinkedIn and sees incorrect information there, it could cost them some trust in you as an employee or potential candidate later down the line when they find out about what happened before moving forward together professionally.

4. Be a problem-solver and show your personality.

Be a problem-solver. You know what the world needs? Problem-solvers. You know what the job market needs? Problem-solvers. So be one!

Be personable, friendly, and professional while networking online. When communicating with potential employers or recruiters, it’s important to remember that they want someone who is professional—but also someone who is genuine, enthusiastic and easy to work with. Showing your personality in your communications shows that you’re a great potential candidate who will be able to fit well into the workplace culture.

Do all these things and you’ll be top of the candidate list.

Finally, don’t go around applying for jobs without trying to get them from the source first.
