3. Write Blogs In Your Area Of Expertise

With blogs getting popular amongst techies, many recruiters these days make use of the web to find the right candidates. By digging your way via different kinds of technical blogs, it can become easy and quick to get noticed by the recruiters.

So, create a blog and start penning down good articles to demonstrate your skills and expertise. If you wish to attract the targeted viewers, it is important to put in time to develop quality content. A good blog post does not only help the recruiters to assess you on your knowledge but also your style of communication.

4. File Patents

Try and conduct some research in your area of expertise and if you have that big idea, get it patented. It can secure your position in your dream software company. The software community is known for its fast moving pace, thanks to the inventions that happen on a continuous basis. So if you are able to conduct a strong research in any of the important areas, be assured that you are going to get noticed as a person who is serious about his profession. The companies out there are preferring to hire people who deeper understanding of their specialty and are at pace with the current technological trends.

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. Hence, all you are required to do is to write a good white paper and you will be in a win-win situation.
