TIP: "About my (work) experience" section | How do you enter this correctly?
Let's get started
In January 2019 we started with L1NDA Connect. Since then we worked with companies and job seekers who together help improve L1NDA Connect. The most common feedback we've received is that companies see the `About my (work) experience` section as the most important information about the candidates. After reading this information, they often make the final choice to hire someone or not.
This feedback therefore influences the selection process. Applicants who enter their skills and experiences in the "About my (work) experience" section are 60% more likely to get hired. Yes, 60% more likely!
What to do?
The purpose of L1NDA Connect is to connect job seekers and companies who are passioned about the quality and enjoyment of work. Something you are part of as well! That is why we would like to share 4 elements that you can add to the "About my (work) experience" section to make your profile stand out. You could consider this part of your profile as a "mini resume".
- Profile picture: A great picture increases the chance of being selected. No, you really don't have to hire a photographer, but simply make sure your photo is sharp, light and energetic and show your best! Above all, be critical and consider yourself whether you would hire yourself based on your photo,
- Work experience: companies are curious about what kind of experience you have in hospitality , so that they can offer you a position that fits your profile best. Therefore, sketch a clear picture of what you have to offer. For example: Bartender @ Cafe Ana | 6 months Strength: Customer-friendly, tapping beer and making cocktails,
- Language: Let us know which languages you speak and in which language you would like to communicate,
- Describe yourself: It's not all about work. Companies want to know what type of person you are and what you are doing. Briefly describe your personality and whether or not you are engaged in a nice study (or other ambitions).
Now it's time to apply these tips to your profile and increase your chances of getting hired!
