Gerri recommends that you 1) get connected, 2) be Google-able and 3) target your search.
She says “boosting your visibility online is more and more important, and there are companies out there that can help.”
“Check out Ziggs.com where you can post a free professional profile on the site. If a recruiter is looking for a job candidate online, your name may just pop up at the top of a Web search. [With Ziggs] you’ll even be sent an e-mail alert if someone clicks and views on your page [your profile].”
Gerri is referring to Ziggs Real-Time Search Alerts. Every time your Ziggs Profile is viewed, you will receive an email alert that tells you from where you were viewed, what time the visitor viewed your profile, as well as what search terms were used to find your profile. This free service helps you keep tabs on how often people are finding and viewing your Ziggs Profile.
New for Search Alerts, Ziggs now offers a global map with a red pin point for every location in the world from which you’ve been searched and viewed. To see the power of this hot new feature at Ziggs, click on your Search Alerts link in the Message Center of your Hub.
