Job Boot Camp Preview - Being Ready for a New Job

Updated: Tuesday, February 26 2013, 09:17 AM EST
GAHANNA -- When you're looking for a new opportunity, job search consultants say it starts with a good impression online.
 
ABC 6 / FOX 28 spoke to career strategist Marcy Depew, owner of Teal-Noir, a job search service. Depew specializes in resume writing, but she also helps spouses find a job if their significant other has to move.
 
One website that narrows down jobs according to zipcode and speciality is indeed.com. Job candidates can post their resume and see if it matches what employers are looking for.
 
Getting a job may depend on what you post on the web. Depew says job seekers should avoid tweeting or Facebooking anything questionable or derogatory.   Facebook users should always utilize their privacy settings.

Depew says something as simple as posting pictures of your grandchildren can bias an employer by telling them who you are.

If you have a Linkedin, or online resume profile, you should never say you're looking for a "new opportunity" if you already have a job.
