Being the #1 service job app in Denmark, Workee is a very intuitive and easy-to-use application, but you will be able to optimize your job search even more if you also follow this series of steps:

Step 1. Take a self-assessment

There is nothing better than knowing yourself, and this also applies to the workplace. Identifying your strengths and weaknesses will be essential in finding the most suitable position for you. Regardless of the time of year, it is vital that your profile has objective and well-presented information. This will allow you to differentiate yourself from other candidates and help employers know you better.

Step 2. Create a profile that will catch the attention of employers

Did you know that 92% of all shortlisted candidates on Workee had a completed profile? Employers tend to look through registered candidates, and having detailed and thorough information will surely make your profile stand out among others.

  • 1.Choose a nice Profile picture with optimal quality. The first thing that will catch employers’ attention will be your photo, so make sure it shows what you want to convey.
  • 2. Indicate your Location. By displaying this information on Workee, you will see jobs in your area. It will also facilitate the search that employers carry out based on this criterion.
  • 3. Add links to your Facebook and LinkedIn profiles. Nowadays, social networks play a very important role in recruitment, so don’t forget to review and optimize your personal brand on the Internet. It is very likely that if employers take an interest in your Workee profile, they will check your other profiles as well.
  • 4. Fill in the blanks with information about your Previous jobs. Add your position, the name of the company and the dates you worked there. If you haven’t got any working experience yet – no problem! There are a lot of companies hiring people with no previous experience.
  • 5. Add information about your Birthday, Education and knowledge of Languages. In order to speed up the hiring process, choose your preferred working hours, note if you have a Work permit and choose the type of your Driver’s license, if you have one.
  • 6. Make a quick self-presentation. The About me section is one of the elements that ends up tipping the balance towards a possible interview or towards the rejection of a candidacy for a job, so do your best to describe the professional traits you believe are necessary for your ideal employment.

Step 3. Search available careers using Workee’s filters

Once you’ve identified your skills, qualities and experiences, take some time to search for currently available jobs. The best option when looking for a job on Workee is to do it by selecting categories. After getting a good idea of the available jobs that may be a good fit for your background and interests, narrow your search by using more specific filters like keywords, hourly wage and location.
The New Year is a very exciting, yet stressful, time for finding a new job. So as to enjoy this process to the fullest and avoid burning out, remember these simple tips:

  • Maintain good momentum. Searching and applying for jobs can be a full-time commitment, so set aside a certain amount of time for your search and do it on a daily basis.
  • Be patient. As a lot of candidates want to get a new job for the New Year, companies may be slow to respond or may not respond at all. If you don’t get a response, keep your chin up and keep applying for new opportunities.
  • Attitude is everything. The job search process is difficult, so you must recognize the emotional ups and downs that can arise in this period and work on them. Remember that a good attitude will always be beneficial when finding and applying for a job.

We hope that our advice will help you start the year off well with a new and exciting career.
