Tech Pros Social profileWith the advent of new technologies, the process of finding a new job is changing rapidly, and is very different now to what it was even 5-10 years ago.

Social media, online job boards, mobile apps and so on have all made the job search process far more interactive and transparent. Employers are now able to find out a lot more about you, and have little difficulty with distinguishing between what is true and what is embellished.

No longer are you restricted to two sides of regular-sized paper to try and convince recruiters and employers that your vast experience and complex personality are well suited to the position.
