Hello, my name is Riaan and I am a Recruiter here at Incepture. I recently received an invitation to join the Incepture Blog team. I am proud of this membership, which I predict will last until my first Blog is published. I look forward to sharing some helpful information on the entire process of finding your dream job, and believe me, dream jobs do exist and are within everyone’s reach.
I’m originally from South Africa and I have lived in the United States since 1999. Since then I have been involved with all different types of work like Project Management and Operations Management, but recruiting is my passion. I’ve been in recruiting for 8 years now and I love what I do. I wouldn’t say it’s my dream job but it comes pretty close. My dream job would be anything where I would be paid astronomical amounts of money for doing almost nothing! Since those positions are all taken my next best choice is recruiting and I do it because I love helping people especially through the stressful process of finding employment.
Over the next few weeks I will be blogging about basic and creative strategies to incorporate in to your search for that dream job. Together we will walk through successful interviewing, job searching and how to make you more visible to prospective employers by using the Internet and social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. (There are more but these are the most popular in my opinion)
You can connect with me on LinkedIn at http://www.linkedin.com/in/riaanvanrensburg and follow me on Twitter at @_riaan. You can also use these links to reach out, connect and provide feedback to share your own experiences with me and all of us here at Incepture.
