How to boost visibility as a job seeker

Are you wishing you could boost visibility to employers? Feeling invisible is far to common to job seekers. You continue sending out resumes or submitting online applications but it feels like no one is listening.

What can you do to boost visibility?

How do you stand out in a field of job seekers vying for the same job? What will make you visible?

Job search is all about differentiation. This means making yourself different than the crowd. When you differentiate yourself, you become more visible because you don’t look like everyone else.

One of the biggest fears that job seekers tell me is that they are afraid to do things differently because they were told that there is only one way.

Let’s look at that a different way. If you write your resume just like everyone else and have the same LinkedIn profile, how will employers know you are the right one for the job?

You boost visibility by being different


My goal as a professional resume writer is to delve deep into your career stories to capture what makes you different.

  • How did you create value for the company?
  • Did you improve operations?
  • Write about how you helped cut costs
  • Capture the story about how you increased employee engagement
  • Describe the change management process you led
  • Explain how your new marketing initiative helped the company gain visibility

Don’t regurgitate your job description in your resume

While employers need to know that you can do the job, they don’t need you to echo the job description. They need you to tell them how you fulfilled the job description.

The resume stories take you beyond the job description as you illustrate the difference that makes you a valuable new hire.

Everyone has a story from new hires to top executives. Capturing the stories will catapult your value for the hiring manager.
