"Find a job," they said. "It'll be easy," they said.
Ahh, if only. For most of us, though, finding a job is pretty darn difficult -- especially one we're passionate about.
It doesn't help that competition is on a global scale. Jobvite found that 69% of all HR recruiters expect hiring to become more competitive in 2015, especially regarding social recruiting on LinkedIn and Facebook. In fact, 93% of all recruiters consider reviewing a candidate's social profile before coming to a decision.
Nowadays, it's not just your resume that needs to catch a recruiter's eye. It's your online profile, your connections, the content you're choosing to relay online, your personal website, and examples of previous work that show hiring managers you're an awesome fit.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, you're not alone. But thankfully, there are things you can do to make the job hunt easier and increase your chances of landing a job you're really excited about.
