If you're in search of a new career opportunity, it's time to make the most of your journey. Now that you've created a TPE candidate profile, optimize employers' chances of discovering you and all that you have to offer.
Update Your Candidate Profile
- Complete every field in your profile. Employers depend on the information stored in your profile to get to know you more and to determine if their institution is the type of workplace that you're looking for.
- List previous positions held. Provide employers with an understanding of your skill set and level of experience in specific work areas.
- Upload your résumé, cover letter, and portfolio. Let employers hear--from your perspective--the reason you're a potential match for their available roles. And if you're registered for TPE Onsite, remember to have your résumé reviewed.
- Set your Profile Search Visibility field to "Public". Employers cannot discover you if your profile is private. You want to make your profile public after you have successfully completed your profile so employers see the finished profile and not one in progress.
Your TPE candidate profile is your first line of entry to connecting with the employers who seek year-round to fill their positions with the right people. In addition, your complete profile brings you one step closer to employers who have registered for TPE Onsite thus far--and the many more who are sure to do so in the weeks/months ahead!
