Marketing of You = Jobs Search

Marketing is a general name given to all the steps that lead to final sales. In jobs search you are the product!

Yes, you must sell yourself!

It sounds simple. Marketing is how to get YOU as a product into the hands of customers who are ready to buy i.e. job recruiters, employers, recruiting agents, HR consultants, headhunters etc.

The reality of marketing is not so simple. Companies are receiving huge numbers of CVs and resumes. Many human resources managers receive more then 500 job applications a day.

It is tough out there!

Marketing which is critical to your success involves all the different stages from getting an idea to delivering. Those include:

  • explanations on how customers operate and why - your customers are job recriters, headhunters and employers.
  • how to create advertisements / marketing materials, which are your CVs, resumes and cover letters
  • where and how to send your advertisements / marketing materials
  • and finally, how to close a deal - obtain interviews and jobs you want.
