4 passive Job Search tips you did not know about

Are you not excited about your job? Do you hate it? Do you want to change jobs but cannot seem to bring yourself going through the tedious job search process? Help is at hand! The brand new Monster Mobile app provides a customised job search experience, which will keep you constantly updated with industry insights, company news and job openings. Companies are actively seeking out talented and experienced candidates even when there is no indication of a job switch intention on the other side. You need to stay on the radar.  
 
 
Monster Mobile app never lets you miss out on an opportunity which is best for you! Being “actively” passive in your job search ensures that you are well equipped for such a transition. 
 
 
Here are the top tips for passive job searching:
 
Get Smart
In this information age, we are swamped with communication clutter. Who has the time to dig through pages of irrelevant data to land a good opportunity? Even less so when you are seeking passively. Monster Mobile app allows seekers to assign themselves an Avatar which represents their current career status from 5 pre-defined classifications. Once you set your career status, the app personalizes the job search experience, bringing you only the most relevant content - be it jobs postings or search results, amongst others. This is great news for the passive job seeker as you get relevant alerts even when you are not actively hunting for a job.  
 
Be Aware 
To identify good opportunities, you need to constantly stay in touch with industry information; be it hiring trends, salary information and/or available openings. As you get into the passive job search mode, you will need to remain updated on such important insights to make the right decisions. Monster Mobile app is tailored to do just this. It seamlessly integrates with Monster’s Professional Networking for Jobs so you can follow recruiters and/or companies you like. The app will then provide you real-time updates of company news, job openings – so you are always mindful of any new opportunities! 
 
Be Connected 
In today’s workplace connections matter, so stay in touch with professional contacts and nurture the relationships to keep the best prospects at hand. Monster’s Professional Networking for Jobs seamlessly integrates with the Monster Mobile app to leverage your contacts for the smartest and most customised job search experience. Tap into the vast Monster database to connect with companies and recruiters. You can search and network with your peers, mentors, alumni and also import external contacts to your professional network. The app will make sure you are always just one message away from them! 
 
Be Relevant
Keeping your CV and profile updated is extremely important to stay relevant in the market, and this is exactly what you need to do with your profile on the mobile platform as well. The Activity Meter in the Monster Mobile app picks up your usage statistics; such as profile completeness, activity within the network (recommendations, endorsements etc.); activity with other users (peers, companies, recruiters), job search history. Based on your activity, relevant information is delivered to you. The Activity Meter will keep you active in your profile, thus keeping you engaged with the best prospects! 
 
 
Changing jobs is a major career move. Something that needs to fit in with your long-term goals. And for this purpose, job search must become a seamless part of your career path itself. So be ‘Active’ with Monster Mobile app and Monster Professional Networking for jobs even when you are not looking for an immediate job change. You never know when you meet your ideal job!
