Job search 101: How to get recruiters to approach you

If you're looking to make your job search experience more effective and efficient, there are a few things you can do to get ahead in your job search journey and appear as an attractive candidate for a position.

5 ways to get recruiters to approach you for jobs

  1. Optimize your resume with keywords

Make sure that your resume is optimized according to the recruiter's preferences. This will ensure that your information stands out from the competition and gets an interview invitation.

  1. Use job boards

A job board like Kibbi can be extremely helpful in getting your first job in Canada, which can add to your Canadian experience. Kibbi makes it easier to find jobs locally, allowing you to reach more recruiters in less time. With Kibbi's advanced search capabilities, you can target specific recruiter roles that are most relevant to your career objectives.

  1. Be proactive

Make sure to contact recruiters even if there are no postings listed on the job board, as they may still be looking to fill positions.‍

  1. Follow up regularly

A recruiter may not be able to get back to you straight away, so make sure you keep your resume and contact details updated, and follow up on applications regularly.‍

  1. Be flexible

Keep an open mind about the types of positions you're willing to consider, as this may make it easier for recruiters to match you with suitable openings.

Tips to make your resume more searchable by recruiters

  1. Use keywords related to the job description

When you're writing your resume, be sure to use keywords that are relevant to the job you're applying for. These keywords will help your resume appear in search results when potential employers are looking for candidates with your skills and experience. To find the right keywords to use, look at the job listing and identify the key qualifications and requirements.

  1. Keep the formatting simple

When it comes to resumes, simpler is often better. Stick to a clean, straightforward format that is easy for employers to scan. Include essential information such as your name, contact information, education, and work experience. Avoid adding unnecessary details or fluff.

  1. Use an online resume builder

If you're not sure how to create a resume that is keyword-optimized and easy to read, consider using an online resume builder. Resume builders can help you create a professional-looking resume in minutes, with no need for design or formatting expertise. Simply enter your information into the builder and let it do the rest!
