Self Promotion Fridays
2019 CV / Resume Database open for submissions
Welcome to 'Self Promotion Fridays' - an idea we have been working on for awhile.
We want to give YOU the opportunity to be seen by recruitment consultants and to tell them a little bit about yourself. How will we do this? We came to an agreement with hundreds of employment agencies around the world: Every Friday they will have some of their recruitment consultants monitor our Facebook pages.
So how does this help you?
Every Friday we encourage you to use our Facebook wall to tell these employment consultants a little bit about yourself. Status space is limited on Facebook so try and cover as much information as possible - but don't give out private information or your email address. If they want to contact you they can leave a comment or contact you through your profile page.
Some examples of what you could post (and watch the spelling please):
Hi, I am John Smith and I am looking for any banking / financial sector positions. I have worked in these fields for the past 20 years and have extensive experience. My highest qualification is a MBA.
Name: Sandy Jones. In 2010 I qualified as a theatre nurse and I am looking for a position with a large hospital. I am comfortable working shifts and have my own transport.
I just finished school and I am prepared to start at the bottom and work my way up. Please consider me for any entry level position. You are also welcome to contact me for my CV.
The above are a few examples and we urge you to write your own 'advert'.
Every Friday you will have the opportunity to tell these recruitment consultants a little bit about yourself and what you are looking for. Hopefully a few might look at your 'advert' and contact you.
Want your advert to stand out? Ask your friends to visit our page and then to LIKE your wall post.
Do you follow more than one of our pages? Make sure that you post your information on each page's wall.
Do you want to see what other cities we have on Facebook? Go to our homepage and click on the city of your choice - you should now see the Facebook 'LIKE' button.
Remember, 'Self Promotion Friday' is around the corner so you better start planning your 'advert' (and remember to ask your friends to LIKE it).
