5 Tips To Attract The Job You Want Using Your Jobstreet Profile

5 Tips To Attract The Job You Want Using Your Jobstreet Profile
Jobstreet content teamupdated on 13 April, 2022

Amidst the current situation the world is in, companies have comfortably eased into the digital way of things. This ranges from shifting to work from home arrangements, skeleton manning, and propagating personal profiles online through social media and the like. 

This also applies to ways of recruitment. Gone are the days of physical interviews, walk-in applications, and the like. Most hirers are digitally searching for their next candidate, and are utilizing online platforms to display their vacancies.

In fact, most expect the US online recruitment market to grow by $3.52B until 2024. Couple that with the fact that 86% of organizations there have ditched physical interviews entirely for virtual correspondences. The same shift can apply for the Philippine market as well.

What does this mean? The best place to catch the job of your dreams is through the World Wide Web. Take this as a sign to build your online jobseeker presence. Luckily, we at JobStreet can help with that. It all begins with signing up and creating your jobseeker profile.

Already got one? Good. It's time to update it. Having the profile activated is one thing, but an updated profile shows relevance and movement within your career path. It gives hirers a snapshot of your work capacity and what you can bring to the company.

But most importantly, you can find your dream career quicker and stand out better. How? Here are five ways to maximize your JobStreet profile.


This is the most important step of all. If you still have the dummy icon as your profile photo, it's time to upload one of your own on the site. 

Since employers cannot see you in person, it is important that you have a decent profile photo to go with your achievements. It gives employers a glimpse of the person behind the impressive profile. 

Aside from the above, make sure to upload a clear photo in 150x150 pixels. If you have old photo files, you can upload them too. To be on the safe side, you can use ID photos of you in corporate attire preferably. 

Lastly, make sure to dress appropriately and have professional poses only -- leave the goofy ones for social media. There's a reason why this adage rings true: "A picture speaks a thousand words." Be sure that it only speaks in positive volumes. 


We at JobStreet believe that employers should pay their employees fairly, especially for roles that require taking on bigger responsibilities. This can reflect in the Expected Salary tab of your JobStreet profile, and is a prominent display on the profile's upper center tab as well. 

As above, price yourself based on two factors: your worth and work experience. This is a point of negotiation you can bring in during your interview, but make sure to also look at the other points you can contest should the price you fight for is rejected. 


This is especially important if you are on the lookout for new opportunities. Work experience is a crucial point for employers to look at. Not only does it give employers a glimpse of what you have done, it also summarizes movements within your journey.

Whether there are gaps in your resume or not, it is important to be transparent, and let your employers know how capable you are.


The pandemic has given companies and their colleagues opportunities to explore other roles or take on more responsibilities. During a period of downsizing, transferable skills have allowed retrenched colleagues to shift to other industries. 

While roles that are specific for the job you want are important, it is also just as important to highlight the transferable skills you have. 

Not only do employers get a good indication of your work capacity, but they can determine if you can take on bigger responsibilities or roles in the future. Click the Skills tab on the left-hand side of your profile and input at least three to five there. Need examples of such skills? Here is a comprehensive list


While your profile is a good enough summary already, employers still want to download a "physical" copy to keep on file and review further offline. Make sure that your resume aligns with the information you laid out on your profile. 

As above, stick to 1-2 pages at most and put the most relevant information on the first page to grab their attention immediately. Keep the resume neat and straight to the point, for the convenience of your employer.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and usually it is a very easy one. Updating your JobStreet profile is a simple action that can make a world of difference for your career search. Step up and update! Your dream job awaits.
