At at time when the energy sector is laying off and new students graduating are not finding jobs, people need to change both their expectations and their approaches to finding work.
An MIT study on the future of work says your future is probably not a permanent job, but a contract for services for specific deliverables. They predict that in the next 10 years that 30-50% of the workforce will be "just-in-time" contract talent & employers will find people through social networks based on people’s reputation & ability to deliver targeted results. In other words, just telling people what you know on a resume is not going to be enough to get you work in the future.
Companies are already starting to shop for talent the same way you shop for hotel rooms; online, matching their needs to people’s skills. LinkedIn is the primary resume holder, but it doesn’t hold content that truly demonstrates a person’s skills, or provide feedback you can trust from someone who has actually paid for their services.
GOmentr.com is the perfect content bolt-on tool to use with LinkedIn for finding work by making it easy to SHOW & SELL yourself online. Create Resources that show what you can do (evidence); which you use for content marketing through LinkedIn to get attention; then connect & sell them on you being the right person to help them solve their problems, deliver results & succeed. Through GOmentr.com they can try you for hours, before they buy you & give real feedback so people know who to trust.
The attached presentation also gives you tips and tricks on online marketing and how to promote yourself through LinkedIn to get yourself noticed.
