How to Create an Attention-Grabbing Profile on a Job Board

Smart employers understand the importance of their job offer in attracting the best talent for the position. Bob Wheeler, a veteran, former recruiter, and net account manager for ClearedJobs, shares tips on how to create a profile on a job board that will draw the attention of recruiters. Job boards are invaluable tools for recruiters and hiring managers looking to find and attract new talent. Most job boards are user-friendly and designed with the candidate in mind, allowing applicants to complete the process quickly with simple tabs and buttons.

Additionally, job boards typically display resumes with the most recently updated profiles first. When creating your own profile, try to integrate your work history and skills into the qualifications listed in the job offer so that you appear to be well-suited for the position at first glance. In addition to including relevant information about your work experience and skills, make sure to include a professional photo of yourself. This will help you stand out from other applicants and give recruiters a better idea of who you are.

Additionally, be sure to include any awards or certifications you have received that are related to the position you are applying for. Finally, make sure your profile is up-to-date and accurate. Recruiters may contact you if they find your profile interesting, so it's important that all of the information is accurate and up-to-date.
