Beginning a successful career includes developing a good resume and placing it in some social network to make it visible for recruiters. If you want your resume to attract attention, it should be properly composed.
Following a couple of helpful tips can help to avoid common mistakes while making your LinkedIn profile more effective!
Choose a suitable photo.
Appearance makes the first impression. That’s why it is important to choose a good photo, one which you look pleasant, confident, and professional. Avoid selecting a photo with pets or toys or ones where you look shy or funny. Remember, if you want people to take you seriously, you should look serious, and friendly.
Compose a descent heading.
A suitable photo should be accompanied by an excellent, well-composed slogan (Garriott, 2015). Think carefully before placing it on your profile, though. It should reflect your motivation and express your future goals and willingness to accept career challenges! An example is, “Well-trained marketing expert is ready to take a position in a successful international company.” Don’t be afraid to sound too self-confident. At this stage, it’s important to grab the attention of the hiring manager or recruiter and evoke curiosity to find out more about you.
Modern society is obsessed with computer technologies. Adults and teenagers, especially youngsters, seldom write even a few notes in their notebooks. Instead, we send emails and texts. In a word, we’re texting on any possible occasion, considering it to be quicker, more convenient and most of all, more modern than old fashioned hand writing.
Communicating via sending short messages has already transformed into a separate communication style.
Terms such as ‘textese,’ meaning sms language, and ‘textisms,’ which refers to mnemonic devices or word-shortening are widely used via cell phones and on Internet social networks.
Obviously, one should make use of all modern communication trends and devices, but one question arises: whether such an influence of technology is positive or negative? So, is texting harmful or beneficial?
