So, back to part II – The tools that you will need to get into the pools of overseas employers:

The first job search tool that you will need is not as most people think, just a CV.

It is actually information or intelligence which is gathered from research.

In our Q Jumper Factor VIP Program, we perform this research for our VIP clients.

Job Search Tools – Initial Research

Research is the most important part of your job search tools.

How can you give someone something, unless you know what they want? Therefore, you must do your research about the requirements very well.

Here is the research you must perform and the intelligence you must gather:

1. What are your job targets? What are they called, or what are the titles in your destination country? What are all the requirements in terms of pay, tasks, hard skills, soft skills, certifications, affiliations, registrations, etc. You must look at 50-80 job description of your job in your destination country and according to your eligibility, to gain this information. It can take quite a lot of time!

2. Second, who are the employers who employ people like this? Where are they located, what are they looking for in people, where do they get their people from? Do they advertise, if so, where? What are their values etc. Are they allowed to work with immigrants? This will give you a clear picture of several employer targets.

In this final piece, finding the employer targets is extremely important. Here you should uncover a list of 50-60 employer targets. They will become the employers you will be targeting and get your profile into their pools of candidates.

Other Job Search Tools

When we perform this research for our VIP clients, it takes around 3 weeks per client and we utilize this information to create their job search tools.

#1 – a Strategic Immigrants’ CV – this part of the job search tools will match the requirements of the jobs and the employers. In other words, it is not just a CV with your stuff, it matches what the jobs and employers require.

If you look below this video, you will see a link to a free course, where I give away the steps to create this Strategic Immigrant’s CV, with the templates of the CV and cover letters that go with it

#2 – The next part of job search tools is the cover letter to use to get into the pools of overseas employers, is called a Letter of Interest. It introduces you to the employer, tells them why you want to work for them, and gets you into their pool

#3 – Another important part of job search tools is a Unique Immigrant’s LinkedIn Profile, STAR Profile and resume videos: The LinkedIn profile will link you with the employers, and you will become visible. Here you should be following them, and then through STAR examples, give proof of your skills and abilities and rise above your competitors. With your resume videos, you can display more than just the skills, qualifications, and experience, which is what is on your CV and what others are displaying. A Resume video will display your character, personality, and communication skills, which is actually what employers are looking for.

So these make up all your job search tools to get into the pools of overseas employers.

When you have all these job search tools set up, watch the next video in this mini-series to take the steps to actually get into the pools of overseas employers.
