If you’re looking to secure your dream tech job, there’s no better time than now. The sector is rapidly evolving, and with tech roles accounting for 7.9% of the US workforce and 14% of the UK workforce, there are endless opportunities to enter and excel in the industry. At the same time, competition is fierce for jobseekers – so it’s vital to set yourself apart and stay on top of your job search.
Don’t know where to begin? Our expert recruiters have you covered! Here are some top tips for finding and landing that perfect role.
Take advantage of LinkedIn
In today’s job market, online networking is crucial to your search. That’s where LinkedIn comes into its own. It’s one of the most powerful and often overlooked networking tools that can help you progress in your career. Something as simple as setting up a new profile – or ensuring your existing one is up to date – will open the door to more employment opportunities.
Once your profile is complete, it’s essential to let recruiters know that you’re open to work by enabling the ‘Open to Work’ feature. You can do this by clicking ‘Me’ > ‘View Profile’ > ‘Open to’ > ‘Finding a new job’. Of course, your work isn’t done when you’ve finished setting up your profile. You need to stay active on LinkedIn by regularly searching and applying for jobs, posting or interacting in relevant groups, and connecting with tech recruiters.
