How to get yourself noticed as a job seeker CHICAGO, IL -- Become more visible: It's a big world out there! One of the best ways to get noticed these days is to make your self as visible as possible to potential employers. The first thing you can do is to ensure your online resume includes keywords that are related to your particular field. Without the correct keywords your information is far less visible to any one searching online.

Social media: If you're not leveraging the plethora of social media tools at your disposal, you're missing out on a huge opportunity to get noticed and make connections that could result in an offer. Your first move should be to get on LinkedIn and start expanding your network by joining groups and working through your existing contacts. It's a good idea to either set your Facebook to private or at the very least ensure nothing potentially discouraging to potential employers is visible.

Gaining influence: Harnessing the power of Twitter and other online mediums to become an industry influencer can be a great asset. Influencers are not just popular, but are seen as connected, passionate and knowledgeable individuals who have the ability to affect change. This is a powerful asset to potential employers. Employers want to know they are hiring someone who can have a positive impact not only for the company but also those around them.
