Why is there a need for a programme of this type in a job search context?
The days of job postings, applicants applying and organisations hoping the right talent will connect with them are over.
Over 70% of all executive positions are now unlisted (the Hidden Jobs Market). Today, recruiters are using analytics, sophisticated search tools and social networks to proactively find and evaluate specific candidates for specific roles. This presents a tremendous opportunity for leaders to not just find a new placement, but find their best placement, by actively demonstrating their thought leadership and capabilities via their social and digital activities, and you can start to do this now.
This is what our ‘Be Found’ approach is all about. Make no mistake, this is a paradigm shift in career management: what senior level job candidates do in social/digital will bring opportunities, particularly the hidden job opportunities, to you. This is about establishing your visible credibility, being found, and being recruited; think of it as ‘pulling’ opportunities to you vs. ‘pushing’ for the advertised roles that most other candidates will be chasing after.
To demonstrate how being prepared and in touch with the market is, our independent research showed a disconnect between recruiters’ and senior candidates’ perceptions of how well prepared they were. It also appears that there is a blind spot with many executives around embracing – truly embracing vs. dabbling – social & digital as job search strategies.
We want to help you position yourself as a visible, credible candidate, to rise above the competition and demonstrate your leadership through social, rather than focusing on the advertised jobs market – the frustration around which is all too evident from the many conversations we have with candidates.
How will this help you in your job search?
You will get concise step-by-step guidance.
We realise this will involve a learning curve and a mind-set shift for many people, so this program will give you practical steps and support you to learn and maintain a strong social presence. You’ll find out how to use social media platforms, why publishing is so powerful, how to be found, and more, including daily reminders with actions for you to maintain the social momentum you’ll discover here. The shorter term aim is to help you land your next senior level role, faster.
