Hey, it’s rough out there … Nothing can bring down your sense of self and self-worth like a modern-day online job hunt.
Your search can become vastly depressing as you peruse perfect positions that aren’t in your geography, or try to tailor your qualifications to the jobs that are. Long lists of requirements and preferred characteristics in employer listings can make you feel unqualified and inadequate. And the thing is … you might be. For that particular job.
That’s why it’s so important to look in the right place for jobs that are the right match for you. Most online job sites prompt keyword/location searches and give you lists of hundreds of jobs that may or may not fit your interests and qualifications. Don’t waste your time, annoy employers and become discouraged by applying for jobs that aren’t the right fit.
ITJobMatch.com uses a powerful skills matrix to match tech job seekers to jobs that require specific technical skills. By matching your IT skills to the skills employers are specifically looking for, you’ll not only find the perfect job for you, but you’ll maximize your income potential simply by being the perfect fit.
Create your profile on ITJobMatch.com and identify your IT skills by choosing them from our skill taxonomy. Fill out self assessments to give employers further insight on your unique skill sets. After you have a complete profile, click Search to find all the jobs that match you.
You are not a keyword.
Two people with the same title (or keywords) often have completely different skills. Consider two DBAs with different database technology backgrounds. Or two web developers who utilize different web frameworks. Their value to an employer is not their job title; it’s the unique combination of IT skills that makes a job seeker an important asset to the right employer.
Less than 15 percent of job openings are filled by job boards that rely on keyword search. Don’t waste your time on old school job boards – set up your profile on ITJobMatch and cut through the sea of postings that aren’t right for you.
