The demands of the corporate world are changing every day – so are the ways in which job seekers look for jobs today. Keeping the pertinence of the subject in view, today, we will be discussing a few ways in which job hunt is going to evolve in the coming year. Here’s a list of the job search trends 2017, going through which you will be able to prepare yourself for the job hunt better.
Job hunt trends 2017: Everything you should find out about
What does 2017 have in store for job seekers? Should they ideally adopt a different approach to job search this year from what they had been doing all these years? We will find out answers today.
The evolution of career communities
Career communities are very popular today. Till all these years, general job sites were actually a rage since job hunters could actually find all types of jobs there. Career communities, it is expected, will soon take the place of these job sites primarily because of the fact that they facilitate “specialized job search”. Do make sure you are looking up these communities that are tailored for your field or job preference. Taking help of the forums, meetups and articles of these communities means that you are growing your network as well.
It can well be said that 2017 will be the year of career communities.
Make sure you are focusing on your skills
It is your skill set which is going to take precedence over your degree. Yes. Your degree will continue to be a valuable addition to your resume for years to come but recruiters will definitely go on to put more emphasis on hard skills and experience than on your degree. Additionally, you should remember that online degrees are becoming more popular as well. Even a top educational institution will not necessarily be regarded as a surefire draw in this case.
While discussing your experience, make sure you are highlighting your ability to excel in multifarious work environments.
Expand your job search across multiple devices
Kindly ensure that you are not limiting your job search only to desktop and laptop. As has already been indicated above, “mobile” is the way to go. Try the mobile job apps and the search aids that your smartphone has to offer. A standard web browser might not as well offer you the opportunities that a smartphone or tablet can do.
