With more people than ever vying for the same executive job opportunities, it’s important that you take every unique step possible to make sure that recruiters can find your resume among the many others out there. But how exactly can you get this done?

Here are some tips to make sure to help your resume stand out among the rest.

Make LinkedIn Your Friend

It’s hard to over-stress just how great a tool LinkedIn is for those who are pursuing opportunities in the professional realm. As an executive, it works well in a number of ways.

First, it allows you to connect with individuals within your professional networking online, which is always great. Then you can connect with individuals who are connected to their professional networks to create more opportunities for yourself.

Also, because the site allows you to garner and give recommendations, you can build up your references right on the site.

But what’s best for you in regards to helping recruiters find your page is the ability to build your resume and add links to any websites or blogs you have. By making yourself findable on this great site, you give yourself access to thousands of recruiters looking for the next great executive, so why not take advantage?

Build a Blog

Another great way to make yourself findable by recruiters, especially those in your field, is to create a blog that reflects your professional interests. Many bloggers draw in huge audiences by not only offering great advice for those interested in the topics the author is blogging about, but also by creating edgy and catchy topics that can stir up good discussions.

As a blogger, you can really focus on any aspect of the field you’d prefer. However, it’s good to keep two rules of thumb in mind while doing so. One, you want to make sure that you really know what you’re talking about when coming up with discussions so that follow-up in the comments section will be easy.

And two, it’s good to come up with ideas or topics of discussion that no one else is talking about. Of course, this can be pretty difficult with all of the topics that get discussed on the Internet. But even if you’re able to find a regular topic and put a new or funny spin on it, you will find that many readers will be excited about coming to your site for the reads they don’t get anywhere else.

Just Put Yourself Out There

Probably the most important aspect of making yourself findable by recruiters is taking advantage of the Internet as a whole, whether you’re using LinkedIn, creating your own blog (which are easily obtainable via email, by the way), or just making yourself easy to find on Google. The more you put yourself out there on the Internet, the greater your chances will be of getting found by recruiters.

Your best bet is to avoid taking the Internet for granted right now since so many recruiters make it their home. By sitting yourself in the center of the action, you’re bound to place yourself in the right place to find the next position of your dreams.
