- Don’t be too technical or industry specific in your profile
- Don’t jump on a social networking site and give the perception that you’re desperately looking for a job — just “taking” and not “giving”
- Don’t wait until you’re laid off before building out your social networks and staying active
- Don’t forget to check out your “online presence” or “personal branding” to make sure nothing embarrassing shows up when you Google your name
- Don’t forget the No. 1 goal is an in-company referral and you must be willing to take action outside your comfort zone to get one
- Don’t spend too much time in front of the screen. Phone calls and face-to-face meetings are vital
- Don’t be afraid to reach out to anyone on the Web in your targeted area — ask questions, suggest products, share information
- Don’t expect to log on and find a direct lead, because the best tips often come from someone on the network who is several times removed from you
- Don’t forget to stay engaged in your field, keep up on the latest news, products and services. Check out start-ups, which can be a great place to find a job if you act fast
- Don’t try to make friends or contacts with everyone you can on the networks; make sure it’s someone you know or have something in common with
788 Employers are currently recruiting on Irish Jobs web site. Quit a few of them have a long list of jobs as well. From the employers list of 788 companies the majority has a few or more jobs advertised. The calculation shows quite simple that thousands of jobs are available in Ireland today.
Is it a Celtic Tiger all over again? It certainly does not feel so, with even the property prices ‘frozen’ for more than a year now. The unemployment rate is as low as it can be, so if there are thousands of vacancies in Ireland today it is clearly the serious shortage of workers currently in the country. How will that impact the Irish economy? Would we benefit from the increase of the import of “Brain Power”?
