The unemployed or freshers can seek volunteering opportunities within their area of your knowledge and can avail the opportunities of working with some of the professionals who can further help you with your career choices. And if you are a working professional, volunteering within in the area of your expertise can provide you with opportunities to network with experts and professionals who can further help you with providing the right kind of push to your career.

If you wish to attract the targeted viewers, it is important to put in time to develop quality content.

5. Write White Papers in your Knowledge Area

Researches are something that attract recruiters big time! If you have conducted any kind of research, then writing white papers can be one excellent tool to do the trick. A white paper is basically responsible for doing two things: educating and persuading. So, if you wish to persuade your potential employers into believing that you are the most suitable candidate for their company, you must pen down some white papers within the area of your knowledge as well as technical expertise. This will help the software recruiters in assessing your skill set pertaining to the understanding of a problem, analysis and the most appropriate solution. In addition to this, the manner in which you communicate with your audience will also get conveyed.
