SINGAPORE (Jan 17): Jobseekers this year will need to demonstrate the unique value they can potentially bring to a business, on top of their willingness to adapt to change in the face of multifaceted disruptions, according to recruitment experts Hays. So, here are seven ways to land that coveted role:

1. Build your personal brand
A great way to begin moulding your personal brand is through defining your unique selling propositions (USPs). Your USPs are a list of unique ways your skills and experience bring value to a business which other candidates may not possess. By communicating your USPs to hiring managers and recruiters, chances are you will be more memorable and held in higher regard than your competition.

2. Manage your online reputation
Do a quick search for your full name on Google and various social media platforms to suss out the type of results that may appear. Letting your personality shine on social media will allow hiring professionals to understand what you are like as a person and gauge your suitability with a role at hand. Consider having a portfolio website or a blog that showcases your expertise, or even contribute commentaries that are relevant to your niche on renowned industry blogs.
