Here are the CMSE Recruitment teams 3 Top CMSE Recruitment Tips for Contractors!

  1. Make sure you have a professional profile picture

While your wedding and holidays pictures definitely depict you at your most happy and confident self, they don’t have much to do with your professional career. LinkedIn is not Facebook, so keep the family photos for friends and take a good quality headshot against a white background in the office to represent your professional career.

  1. Point out contract roles in your employment history

It can be a red flag for hiring managers when they see you’ve had consecutive short term roles (under 1 year) in your employment history, especially if they can’t see any obvious reason for it. This can be easily avoided if you mention with each job that it was a fixed term contract (6-month contract etc., or a maternity cover contract for 9 months).

  1. Make the most of your profile

Avoid getting endless agencies reach out to you with the wrong jobs by simply updating your status or ‘About’ section with the kind of work you are looking for. “Current contract ending in October, looking for a new 6-12 month contract in the Munster region starting in December”
