When you need to find stuff on the internet, you use Google’s search box, right?
So how do you think recruiters find you on TheLadders.com?
Well, they type stuff into our search box.
So if you want to get found (and Readers, I want you to get found!) you ought to fill out your bio with search terms that are relevant to your career and experience.
To help you do just exactly that, I’m going to give you a little unfair advantage. I’ve listed the 100 most popular searches by recruiters on TheLadders.com below. These are the words that recruiters type into our search box thousands of times each week as they’re looking for candidates for their open positions. When we shared this list with our subscribers 4 months ago, we found that it worked quite well for people to get noticed.
So, Readers, are you helping recruiters find you? Incorporate words like these into your bio and get found!
|12||Product Manager||62||Financial Analyst|
|31||Tax Manager||81||Chief Financial Officer|
|34||Medical Device||84||Plant Manager|
|35||Sales Manager||85||Account Executive|
|40||Regulatory Affairs||90||Call Center|
See words on that list that apply to you? Be sure to get them into your bio!
And did you know that we’ve added even more features to help recruiters find you? Recruiters can now search for candidates by your salary range, the city you live in, zip code and a radius of miles from that zip code, your willingness to travel, and a lot more!
But, before they can find you, you need to fill out your bio to make this information available to them. The more info and detail you put into your bio, the better your results on TheLaders.com are going to be!
Have a great fourth quarter, Readers!
