Encore Webinar! Social Media

The importance of Social Media as it relates to your job search has increased in recent years. Last November, Brilliant hosted a Webinar titled, “How to Effectively Use Social Media in your Job Search,” and we will be hosting an encore presentation next month. The webinar will cover various topics and specifically how to navigate your job search on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and job boards. The webinar also covers the following:

  • The Do’s and Don’ts of social media
  • What recruiters are searching for on social media
  • Why to use social media

The encore presentation will take place in mid-May, so make sure to look out for future emails! 

Candidate of the Month

Dan West is a Manager of Business Development in our Downers Grove office and has been working at Brilliant since December 2015. This month, Dan recommends Jan S. for candidate of the month.

“Jan has been working for us with a new client since the beginning of January. In little time, he has been able to turn around their Accounts Receivable function and has added value to my client's team. He continues to receive praise for the flexibility he provides them and even has received compliments from other managers within the accounting team. Thanks Jan for a job well done.” – Dan West

Hot Topic

The faster something gets done the better. However, it is important to be efficient, especially when you are about to submit your application for a position. Take a deep breath in and out and take the time to review what you are about to submit. Before someone gets to know you, they are going to evaluate the application being sent to them. And, this is all they have to grade you on! Your excitement for the role, knowledge of the responsibilities, or overall charm will not even be considered if you cannot get through step one of the application process. The article below from The Muse titled, “Your 5 Minute Checklist for Submitting a Perfect Job Application”, points out the subconscious on what you should be reviewing prior to clicking submit.
