1. Verification that you are a premium member. Membership to professional associations indicates that you stay current and you are able to make informed decisions.
2. Impression management, online identity management, online reputation management. The global marketplace is an intensely competitive environment, where specialized knowledge is a matter of survival. You have to develop a personal competitive advantage, a personal brand. More than ever, firms and organizations look for qualified professionals.
The Qualified Employee / Median Employee Pay Ratio has changed dramatically. A personal brand could be as important as a company brand.
Online reputation management has become a very important aspect of recruiting. When investigating a person, the first place most headhunters and employers go is Google. What will they find?
Many professionals hate the idea that they are a "product" and what they can do is a "service", but if you do not establish yourself as an expert in your area, employers and headhunters will not find you. It is that simple.
Understanding an employer's expectations is very important. One of the top five skills employers and recruiters want is business acumen (knowing how a business or industry works, what an organization wants to achieve, and how it competes in its marketplace).
Employers ask for evidence that you have the skills and competence relevant to the job. Your primary concern should be to present evidence of the skills and qualities that the employer is seeking.
Qualified professionals change jobs, employers and geographic locations more frequently, so they constantly have to educate others on their capabilities and experience.
