Just’ve found a nice article on how to get hired. No, not Just Another One Clever Article, but a really interesting one – it’s about the IT:

If you’re like many other IT professionals, you may feel like you’re a little fish in a big ocean.

You are.

With so many people seeking jobs today, you cannot afford to be just another John or Jane Doe who’s looking for a job in IT. You’ve got to stand out. Here are some things you can apply immediately to help differentiate yourself in your next job interview or when it comes time for a promotion, or just to win over those who matter…

As having some experience as being hired as IT-specialist I could advise points of strength for jobseekers:

  • Get listed in professional social networks.
    …as being seeking a job (I’ve been hired after my account and professional info was found at LinkedIn).
  • Get certified.
    Invest in your education instead of wasting your time while seeking for a job. Certified workers are more preferable compared to all the others.
  • Tell your friends.
    Being hired by recommendation of a friends is the olderst method 🙂
