Job search is happening more and more on the Internet today. If you're not seen on the web, you don't EXIST!
To get seen on the web today, companies hire SEO (Search Engine Optimization) firms to help strategize methods to ensure that they'll be seen on searches. This is important for you also, because hiring managers and recruiters expect to not only find their candidates on the web, but to have positioned themselves as experts in their particular field or industry.
What better way to find out how we can accomplish this than talk directly with an SEO expert? So today I spoke with Jacob Lebo from Firedrum in Scottsdale, Arizona. They are an SEO company whose expertise is positioning their clients high on the web search rankings and in higher the minds of their customers. This applies to you as a job hunter today because you are actually marketing yourself as a product competing with hundreds, perhaps thousands of other competitors.
After listening to Jacob, you'll discover some of the many ways you can use social media and search engine rankings techniques to not only widen your Internet exposure but also to establish yourself as an authority. By employing some of these techniques, you'll be seen more often where hiring managers will find you.
