Company Page on LinkedIn: Create unique content (Tip #5)

#5: Create unique content

How do you make your content interesting and readable? Worry not, we’ve got you covered!

It may seem obvious, but you’ll have to make sure that your content is original and engaging. Even if you’re re-working something someone has said before, make sure to put your own spin on it.

Spark a conversation, make people compelled to engage with your content, and make sure that they do not regret clicking that follow button. Ask a thought-provoking question or run a contest. Make your audience thirsty for more. And answer all comments to make your followers feel that they really are interacting with you.

Why traditional CVs don’t work – and how to fix it (incl. CVs for ATS)

Free session for experienced managers & executives in Europe who are currently looking for a job (or getting ready for it): “Why traditional CVs don’t work – and how to fix it (incl. CVs for ATS)”.

Let’s face it: your current CV is the product of updating a file that you started 10-20 years ago. While the format you used as an ambitious junior was great, it most probably doesn’t reflect your USP, your personal brand or executive presence.

And even if you decided to upgrade your resume by using a template, chances are that you chose one that looks nice, but isn’t really user-friendly – neither by humans nor by ATS.

During this interactive meeting we’ll explain:
– how an executive CV should look like (with real examples)
– how to go about writing your profile summary
– why a “normal” CV won’t work with ATS
– how to prepare and adapt a CV to job ads
