Your Profile

Now that your Resume is completed and is a veritable work of art, the next step in your successful job search is to prepare your Profile.

Your Profile supplements your resume, and is meant for use in networking meetings and networking groups.

It succinctly states core competencies and qualifications.  It communicates what you are looking for, and puts your network in a position to help you achieve it.

It is especially helpful to your network because it specifically identifies your target companies.  For that reason, it enables your contacts to refer you to individuals they know within those companies.  Once you have penetrated a target company through a personal reference, your odds increase of eventually landing there.

Your Profile should contain the following:

  • Personal Contact Information
  • How You Add Value to Businesses
  • Job Objective--  Title / Industry
  • Key Accomplishments
  • Areas of Expertise
  • Work Experience--  Specific Companies
  • Target Companies
  • Education

Keep your Profile to a single page, and bring multiple copies to all of your networking meetings.  It tells your contacts what you want and enables them to help you look for it.
