When you’re creating your Magnet.me profile it can be hard to know how to optimise it right away. You might wonder what to include and how. What do employers find important? What should I mention to increase my chances of landing the perfect job or internship? Here are a few short pointers to make sure that you’ve got everything covered.

The basics:

  • A clear, well-lit picture of yourself that shows who you are.
  • A clear and personal headline.
  • Up-to-date availability settings
  • Previous work experience


Your summary card (a.k.a. the first impression)

Summary

The most important part of your profile is your summary card. Recruiters will get a first impression from what you put in this card. Make sure that it’s complete, that it shows who you are and that it contains the most relevant and up-to-date information about you.

Describe what you did and show personality

For all the sections where you can provide a description (education, experience) it’s important that you describe what sets you apart from other candidates in your area of expertise. Tell something about your individual contributions to a project and share some personal interests to express some personality.
