5 TIPS TO OPTIMIZE THE VISIBILITY OF YOUR RESUME ONLINE

You want to optimize your CV online? And wondering how to make your resume visible to recruiters? Follow the guide…

Social networks, especially Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Viadeo, bring job seekers and recruiters closer together in a significant way. This proximity is double-edged, if it can help you land the job of your dreams, it can also eliminate your application if your e-reputation is not mastered.

No matter what format your resume is in, whether it’s classic (pdf, web, via an online resume site) or a little more original (video, infographic…), our tips below will give you increased visibility to help you land a job.

Be transparent…

Indicate on your curriculum vitae the links to your various social networks, Twitter, Facebook and especially Linkedin and Viadeo. Put them prominently, insert them in the top left corner, for example. Thanks to this, employers can quickly learn more about you.

Check your e-reputation regularly…

Make sure that the information about your professional background is up to date everywhere. It can be confusing for a recruiter to find information only on one of your profiles. Your online presence should be consistent, keep a list of links to all of your accounts and check at least once a month that each of your profiles is up to date.

Updating all your profiles regularly is also very good for your visibility. Whether it is on Viadeo, Linkedin or job boards, each time your profile is updated, it will rise in the search results and employers will more easily come across your resume. Have you ever noticed that recruitment agencies often contact you 1 or 2 days after an update?

Don’t copy and paste…

Your CV is full of interesting information that can be reused to feed your different profiles. Don’t hesitate to use it, but be careful to select the content to share. Avoid copying and pasting, and adapt the content to the format of the social network. Why not put forward anecdotes that reflect your skills. The important thing is to make sure that the relevant information is relayed in the best possible way on all your online presences.

Arm your profiles for search engines…

Most social networks are indexed by search engines. So make sure you optimize your profiles to stand out on the right keywords and capture the attention of recruiters. To find the right keywords, study the profiles of people who stand out in the results or make a semantic study by following the advice in the previous article: How to choose the right keywords for your natural or paid referencing. Once you have your keywords, integrate them in the texts of your profiles.

Get in touch with potential recruiters…

Social networks also have the advantage of facilitating contacts. You can thus get in touch with recruiters of the companies you are targeting. If you are applying for a job and there is a specific contact, why not search for the person on your favorite network and start a conversation with them. The recruiter will remember your profile better, and this may help you to make your CV stand out. The contact can also be made after the first interview to follow the recruitment process with the person more easily.
