"I was really impressed with the volume and quality of applicants for a job posting I put on Worky. I was also contacted by an individual with experience very specific to my business and may end up doing some work with him. Although it's not what I was originally looking for it shows that people will use your site for business development above and beyond regular staff recruitment."
What is a Worky CV?
- It's your online profile minus some of the personal details you want to keep private like your address, phone number and date of birth
- It's stored at your own personal worky URL and you control privacy and access in terms of who sees it and when
- It's always current as the minute you update it online, the PDF version updates
Promote yourself by creating a good online profile. Your worky profile could
help you get that next promotion. Fill in as complete a profile as possible
focussing on previous work experience and projects. Add a headline and In Brief
and links to your blog or Twitter feed if they are work related. Use relevant
keywords in your Headline and In Brief sections and customise your Worky url
with your name so it ranks well in Google.
Connect with colleagues, classmates, customers and business contacts. Discover
business development opportunities. Import in existing contacts from Facebook or
your email address book. Request recommendations from fellow staff, previous managers
or from suppliers or customers. Their recommendations could help you land that next
promotion. Follow companies that are related to your business - competitors, customers
or suppliers to receive updates and news from them.
Share your thoughts, links or expert knowledge with your connections or
participate in Worky groups. Joining a Group related to your industry is a great
way to make new connections and find new opportunities including new customers or
