It is true that your profile can take you places and help you achieve your dreams, but there are steps you must do to ensure that you don't miss out on the many opportunities available on the site.

To keep yourself on the hirers' radar, it's important to keep your profile updated.'s SiVA Recruitment Centre prioritizes fresh and newly-updated resumes, so you are sure to find yourself at the forefront whenever employers search for candidates on the site.

No need to wait until you're unemployed before you update your profile, in fact it's easier to update one's profile while employed as you can immediately record your accomplishments and successes while it's still fresh in your mind.

Here are a few more reasons why updating your profile is a must:


1.  You'll never miss out on an opportunity again

Hirers are always on the lookout for talent, so you don't want to miss out on that chance. Remember, we've designed our system to show employers the freshest and the latest resumes, so make sure yours is on top of the pile by regularly updating your profile. It's not just a matter of updating your accomplishments and skills; make sure to double check your personal details (contact numbers, email address) so hirers can easily get in touch with you wherever and whenever. It's a great strategy to make if you want to be sure you get scouted and invited to great opportunities offered on the site.

3.  Helps you see the job trends and developments in your chosen industry

It's best to keep one's self updated to the goings-on in the job market or chosen field. It keeps people on their toes, and helps even passive or monitoring candidates stay tuned to the needs of their chosen industry. Because an updated profile exposes you to a wealth of opportunities, jobseekers in turn can see how their skills stack up against the demands of the market. In turn, it makes employees stay competitive and marketable.


4.  Ensures you stay on track with your accomplishments

It's easy to get into a routine once you start working, and it's fairly easy to forget your achievements once you do. Having an updated profile makes it easy for you to keep track where you are, and where you are heading in your career. Don't wait until you're out of work and looking for a new job to update your profile.

Active and passive candidates alike can benefit from regularly updating their profiles, so make it a habit. And if you haven't started a profile with then what are you waiting for, start one today!
