The research is clear! Workers who are volunteer leaders and thought leaders are the talent of choice.
45 percent of employers use search engines, such as Google to research potential job candidates, with 20 percent saying they do so frequently or always.
In this same survey by CareerBuilder, they found that 51 percent of employers who research job candidates on social media said they’ve found content that caused them not to hire the candidate.
Marketing yourself and your personal brand is more important than ever before. You have to stay up to date with what employers are looking for and be sure you have your best foot forward on all fronts.
