HIRING MANAGERS ARE GOOGLING YOU And they aren't finding your resume. So what are they seeing?

February 4, 2016

It's 2016, so it's time we all agree that your resume is important, but only a small part of what will get you hired. Your online presence is now just as crucial as your resume. For good reason—it's where employers go to actually find out who you are. Like, the *real* you. 

And honestly, do you really want hiring managers judging you based on old tweets or a LinkedIn profile you haven't updated in five years? Of course not. How about a beautiful, sleek personal website that makes you look like a total boss? That's more like it. 

And thankfully, needing some serious technical skills to have your own website (that doesn't look like a '90s blog) is a thing of the past, thanks to our creative friends at Squarespace, who make designing personal (and professional looking) sites easy. And actually really fun. 

Trust us: This a real career game changer, so don't put it off any longer. And to help you get a jump-start, Squarespace is giving Musers 10% off a year-long subscription Why? Because we all know how important your career is to you. Now, go create something awesome, and watch the hiring managers start lining up.

  • “The decision to leave my former firm was difficult, but the thought of conducting a job search in Chicago while continuing to practice in Indianapolis was simply overwhelming. Fortunately, I was referred to Alan Rubenstein by a friend. Alan’s knowledge of the Chicago legal market and the different cultures within various law firms was invaluable. The information and resources Alan provided gave me a competitive advantage and allowed me to negotiate a superior arrangement, but most importantly, he helped me select the firm best suited for my personal and professional goals. I have since referred several of my friends to Alan and they have each had equally rewarding experiences.”
