WEEK 1: JOB SEARCH TOOLS AND SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE
The entire month of May in 2022 we organised the Work in Barcelona! month. (sponsored by Telus International AI Data Solutions).
This month was all about providing you with the ultimate guide to working in Barcelona, where we dived into a different topic every week.
We shared our best tips on how to improve your employability through CV writing and your social media presence. As well as, how the Spanish work culture works, what kind of paperwork and documents you’ll need and lastly living in Barcelona.
In the first week of the ‘Work in Barcelona Month!’, we touched upon job search tools, a Barcelonian style CV, how to present yourself on social media.
Monday, May 2nd - Barcelonian style CV
Whether you are already living in or considering relocating to Barcelona, the first thing on your to-do list will probably be finding the perfect job!
However, there are two other important steps you should take before starting your job search and applying for your dream job. First, we would advise to making sure that your CV is ready.
What a CV or resume should entail, differentiates per country. Before applying for a job in Barcelona, it is essential to adapt to the local format. Not only is this the professional thing to do, but it could also possibly increase your chances of being selected for the job.
Tuesday, May 3rd - Social media presence/ LinkedIn
Your LinkedIn presence should be the second step with regard to your job search.
Nowadays, LinkedIn is the most important social media platform to present and market yourself online.
Companies are more often posting their vacancies on LinkedIn, and recruiters are looking at your account and approaching job candidates via their LinkedIn profile. Moreover, companies tend to look at the LinkedIn profiles of their job candidates.
