How to Create Your Mentern Profile
Your Profile is a career marketing tool, not an autobiography.
Two pages is more than enough.
You should also leave something to talk about in the interview.
Put the most important information at the top of the page. Lead with a career summary so your key credentials appear at the forefront of the profile. On the second page, include a page number and include your name and contact information.
Something to consider: Are Infomercials the new way to present yourself?
You deserve to continue your career, or find a new one, so just when is it going to happen? It's not for lack of trying - you've put in the time polishing and peddling your resume, pumping up your online profiles, building professional relationships and applying for jobs, but no golden ticket yet. It's a jungle out there and no easy task catching a potential employer's eye. But if your resume and networking aren't winning interviews for your dream job, consider distinguishing yourself from the competition with an infomercial and you're the star!
It may sound outside the professional box and definitely beyond your comfort zone, but consider doing this. Develop your own personal infomercial and attach it to your killer profile when sending out to prospective employers and you'll substantially increase your chances of finding a position that suits your skills and personality, and for the Business the right person for the position.
"An infomercial educates the employer about who you are, the kind of people you work best with, and how you resolve conflict, and what a perfect working day is for you. Businesses can determine whether they need your talents and know who you really are, not who you want them to think you are.
Infomercials are the perfect complement to a resume.
Tips on how to prepare for your video
Be sure your infomercial answers the following questions:
What should people pay you for that will make them money and save them time?
Think about the best work you've ever done and the best things anyone has ever said about you.
"Make a list and back it up with examples, anecdotes, and achievements,"
Who do I work best with?
Make a list of the people you have worked with seamlessly and look what characteristics they share.
Include bosses, clients and co-workers. Where were you most productive?
How do I like to resolve conflict?
Take into account both you and your potential employer. "Is your conflict-resolution style compatible with the conflict-resolution style of your potential employer? They have to be if you're going to be happy."
