The Art of the Looksharp Profile

3 reasons an employer would rescind a job offer

Completing your Looksharp profile is actually pretty straightforward. Done right, the entire process should take you no more than 15-20 minutes. Plus, the payoff is huge: employers look through hundreds of profiles each day and are much more likely to contact you about applying to open positions if  your profile gives them a sense of who you are and what you’re all about. So here it goes, our 3-step process to profile perfection:

Step 1: The Picture

I know what you’re thinking: why does a picture have anything to do with my ability to work at XYZ job? Well it doesn’t. But it does have a large impact on whether or not employers will contact you in the first place. Think about it, would you rather look at this:

Step 2: Courses 

You know those class projects that have been taking over your life for the past 1-4 years? Now is the time to apply those to your job search. What skills have you learned while in school? What group projects did you work on or lead? If you don’t have a ton of professional work experience, this is an excellent way to supplement. Make sure to relate it back to the industry you’re trying to break into.

Step 3: Work Experience

This is the resume section, a chance to expound upon internships you’ve had or positions you’ve held. Even if your work history doesn’t exactly relate to your field of interest, it can be helpful to list. Sticking with a company for over a year shows loyalty and commitment, working at any job while in college shows time management skills.
