You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? By adding a professional photo that represents your personality, employers are more likely to message you back. Although your photo should be professional, it should also represent your personality, so make sure to smile and have some fun with it! Having professional headshots taken is worthwhile. However, if you don’t want to break the bank, click here to learn how to take your professional photo in the comfort of your home.
By adding specific skills you excel at, the Wavely AI will do a better job of matching you with available positions that align directly with your particular skill set! The more skills you add, the more likely you are to find a job that interests you. You can add up to 18 skills, and don’t hold back. The more you add, the better off you will be when selecting jobs to apply for.
One of the unique things about the Wavely profile is that there is an area to upload your sample work or any documents that highlight your work in action. Whether it be your creative portfolio or past presentations, the Spotlight area is available to show your capabilities within any given field.
It’s time to put your thinking cap on and create a clever headline that will draw employers in. The purpose of your headline is to summarize who you are, what you do, and how you do it, but fitting all of this in one sentence can be tricky! Rather than just highlighting “what you do,” consider writing about “what you do” plus “how you do it.” By doing this, you will better communicate your experience in action. You have a 280 character limit, so clear and concise with a tad bit of spice is nice!
Last but definitely not least, let’s link up those social media profiles. The Wavely app allows you to add a link that will direct employers straight to your social platforms, making it easy for them to look into who you are off your resume. Before linking these up, be sure that you are comfortable with your future employer seeing everything you are offering up. If you think your profile will enhance your chances of getting a job, then go for it. The more information you can provide, the more likely you will be seen and selected for a potential job.
At Wavely, we genuinely believe that you are more than your resume. That is why we developed a platform that allows you to show employers all the incredible things you wish your resume could say.
We got you. With Wavely, you can match, chat, and get hired. Yep, that’s the whole thing.
