Not all jobs are advertised. Sometimes organizations choose to directly approach a person it deems fit for a vacant position directly or through emissaries.

Are you looking to move forward in your career? Well, applying for jobs can be a challenging experience for most people especially if recruiters are unresponsive. This should no longer be a problem to you if you market yourself to the point that organizations approach you for jobs. Here’s how to increase your chance of being headhunted.

1. Brand Yourself

Personal branding will help you stand out especially if you establish yourself as an authority in your professional. Sharing thoughtful information on issues affecting your industry or your achievements such as awards or education achievements on social media will make potential employers or clients notice you.

2. Network

Not all jobs are advertised. Sometimes organizations choose to directly approach a person it deems fit for a vacant position directly or through emissaries. However, not all people are approached but only those that are considered the best. You can stand a better chance of being headhunted by an organization through networking. Networking is about connecting with people in your industry. You can connect with other professions through online professional networking sites such as LinkedIn or by attending professional events like workshops.

3. Update your online profiles

Most recruiters nowadays look at a person’s online profile as part of the evaluation process. Therefore, you need to ensure that your online profiles reflect who you are accurately. Never let a bad profile deny you the chance of advancing in your career.

4. Update your CV

Just like a bad online profile, unimpressive CV can make the recruiters look the other way. Therefore, to boost your chances of being headhunted, make sure that you have a well-written CV that is up-to-date by including the latest conferences or training that you have attended. Don’t forget to upload the updated CV on platforms like Fuzu.
