How do you impress overseas employers as an immigrant jobseeker?

Usually, career consultants will advise you that you can impress a future employer during an interview.

So, you literally will have to wait until you get an interview, right?

Wrong!

There are 3 main ways in which you can impress your overseas employers – even from a distance – without waiting to get to an interview

Note – most of the VIP clients we work with, find their jobs without ever setting foot in their destination country, and so can you.  Just by applying some of the methods which I reveal in videos like this.

1  – Become visible to impress overseas employers – even from a distance

As an immigrant, you probably have a fantastic CV, with fantastic skills, qualifications, and experience on it.  You cannot get better.

But, you know what – you are completely invisible to employers overseas.

Yes, invisible…

You might be a rockstar and have a rockstar CV, but you are playing your songs in a dark corner somewhere.

Nobody knows about you and your great CV.

Even if you throw that CV to job ads online, applying for jobs constantly in your destination country – you are still mostly invisible.

That great CV has a chance of about 1-2% to get through to overseas employers – from your destination country.

The reason for this is the many obstacles that immigrants face, who are applying from offshore – like ATSs, the Catch-22 situation, etc.

So, if you cannot even get through to employers, how do you expect to impress them?

You cannot bank on the 1-2% chance of getting an interview.

The first way to impress an employer is to stand right in front of them, many of them -there where they are searching for people like you.

So, do you know where they hang out, do you know what they want, do you know how to spend time in their presence, engage and interact with them?

In other words, do you know how to become visible to them, without waiting for an interview – and even from a distance?

If so, you are in about 0.44% of candidates and at the front of the queue.

The candidates who can figure this out, do not have to apply for jobs – they are shoulder tapped.

These employers will snap you up if they know about you.

You MUST find ways to become visible.

And these ways are in unique strategies like our Influencer Strategy, Direct Approaches Strategy, Initial approaches, Relationship, and networking, etc.

Sending CVs to job ads online is not one of these strategies.

Our VIP clients, who use these strategies are on a different level than those with just CVs.

And they are clearly visible to overseas employers – even from a distance.

Visibility is currency.

And it is a must to impress overseas employers.

2 – Use Quantifiable Information To Stand Out And Impress Overseas Employers

Quantifiable information provides proof of your skills.

You know, the worst mistake people make is to create a generic CV or resume.

Then, they take it online – in a LinkedIn Profile – just an online CV or resume.

Then, they list their skills.

Anyone can list any skills on a piece of paper or online.

But, who says you can actually do the work and apply these skills to achieve a great outcome of excellence for your career or more importantly, for the employer?

Quantifiable information is in projects, achievements, etc – saying – “this is what I have achieved with these skills”.

And, what is more – it provides the things they want – as an employer.

It is what they are looking for.

So, first, you need to know what employers need, then provide quantifiable information on your CV or resume, in your LinkedIn profile and even take it further, like a STAR Profile.

This is a great way to impress overseas employers, providing proof of your skills and how you can deliver the same value to them.

3 – Building Credibility, Likeability, and Trust To Impress Overseas Employers

No employer, not even a local employer in your current country, will employ someone based on skills and qualifications alone.

It makes up about 15% of what they are looking for.

The other 85% are factors where they are looking for the person behind the skills and qualifications.

To impress overseas employers, they need to see your character, personality, passion, enthusiasm, communication skills, etc.

This is why they do interviews – after they have looked at your skills, qualifications, and experience on a CV.

Then, they will make a hiring decision, based on the other 85% of factors.

You cannot wait until an interview as an immigrant – because your chances of getting to an interview just by sending CVs to job ads online, is about 1-2%.

You must build that likeability, credibility, and trust in other ways – before you get to an interview.

And bypass the masses who are waiting to get to an interview.

And also impress overseas employers, even from a distance, without them ever meeting you in person.

How do you do that?

Again – visibility, coupled with proper networking and relationship building.

For that, you need to know who they are, what they want, and where they hang out.

Then, you need to be interested in them, when you are engaging with them.

You cannot expect to be trusted by someone who does not know you.

It is like dating – you need to be interested in the other person first.

And that is a great way to impress overseas employers – if someone is interested in them, instead of just landing a job.

I hope you found this video helpful.

Use visibility, quantifiable information, and creating trust to impress overseas employers, become the preferred candidate, and beat your competition to land an overseas job.
