While you’re immersed in the many aspects of your job search, you may want to reach out to other types of service providers.

Ensure that what you write is flawless

For the assurance that everything you’ve written is error free and grammatically perfect, I highly recommend Susan Rooks, known as the Grammar Goddess. She’s my go-to copyeditor who helps professionals look and sound as smart as they are. www.GrammarGoddess.com

 

Make your LinkedIn profile pop with a professional headshot

Is a professional photograph strictly necessary? Not at all, and most people are fine with using a clearly focused headshot taken on their mobile device. Just never use a selfie, or crop a photo with a distracting background. Your profile headshot creates an all important first impression of your professionalism, so chose it with care.

That said, there are instances where having a professional take your photo can make a huge difference. I recommend talking to Nathaniel Welch, a New York City-based photographer whose portfolio is pretty impressive.
