Digital Profiles: The New Résumé: How To Search Online Profiles For Recruitment Success

About This Course:
Is the traditional résumé dead? It may not have fully disappeared yet, but its importance seems to be waning.

Nowadays, savvy hiring managers are finding that the best source of information about job candidates’ qualifications can often be their LinkedIn profiles, what they post, comment on, or blog about, and the social media groups to which they belong.

Today’s sophisticated jobseekers understand that they’ll be “checked out” online, so they are likely to establish searchable profiles to attract employers. In fact, the latest advice to jobseekers is to make sure that they have a good online presence to show off their skills, work history, and passions.

Make sure you know how to find and evaluate this valuable online intelligence.

Join us to find out how employers are using accessible online profiles to determine whether to hire job applicants and what legal and practical pitfalls you’ll encounter if you kick traditional, paper résumés to the recruiting curb.
