YOUnique4Europe - Mapping and presenting your unique personal and social competences for better employability in a digital world
ERASMUS+ : 2019-1-DE02-KA202-006119
   

There was a time, not so very long ago for most of us, when job hunting involved scanning newspaper advertisements or actually knocking on the door of a desired employer. It involved selecting just the right heavy parchment on which to print your curriculum vitae (CV), complete with your credentials and long list of experience. And it involved carefully folding that parchment, putting it in an envelope and sending it off, with all your hopes and dreams, at the nearest post office.

My…how things have changed. The digital age in which we live has forever altered the means in which we seek employment. As job seeker, we have gained much more control over our search, a great deal more flexibility in presenting all sides of ourselves and a much broader overview of the jobs available. As an employer, we are able to access a global talent pool, see beyond the cover letter and even target potential candidates who are suitable for positions.

Today you are competing with people from all over the world. Thanks to the internet, location is no longer a factor when hiring, which means that you need to seize all the opportunities our digital world has to offer in order to stand out. In Telenor, we evaluate hundreds of thousands of applicants every year, and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two about what differentiates a candidate and makes us want to talk to them. I’ve put together a list of the top ten things that job seekers can do to boost their chances of getting through the door.
