Teachers Taking Action #008 - 87 reasons to make a video

Happy Saturday to you and 3881 motivated Teachers Taking Action in our community.

Here's one short tip on how to grow your network and land your dream job.

Today's issue takes about 2 minutes to read.

Enjoy!

87% of teachers that include a link to an intro video in their resumé and have a video on their LinkedIn profile get called for an interview. 

The results are in. Video is 87x more likely to engage your audience (who are Principals and schools).

To communicate your value to Principals and schools (and get hired) you have to create a situation where they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST you.

Video is the fastest way to do that.

People can get a much greater understanding of who you are compared to looking at words on a page, or just by your photo on your LinkedIn profile. They connect with you on a much deeper level. They feel like they are meeting you in person before they call you for an interview.

If you don't have a video on your LinkedIn...

Happy Saturday to you and 3751 motivated Teachers Taking Action in our community.

Here's one short tip on how to grow your network and land your dream job.

And the way that you do this is by creating a strong PERSONAL BRAND.

Personal branding is not just for marketers, people in the media and influencers.

It's for everyone.

The goal is to get people to KNOW, LIKE...

Here's one short tip on how to grow your network and land your dream job.

Today's issue takes about 2 minutes to read.

Enjoy!

Today we are going to talk about your LinkedIn profile picture!

Your picture is the first impression that Principals and schools will have of you.

We want you to take a serious look at your profile picture and see if you meet all of these criteria:

1. Do you look like you are going to an interview?

2. Choose a photo that looks like you - if you normally wear a head scarf, glasses or a beard, have a photo that looks like that.

3. Wear professional clothing, as you would wear to school. Don't wear a tie if you don't normally wear one. Make sure your shoulders are covered.

4. Make sure the photo is high resolution. The ideal size is 400 x 400 pixels.

5. Take the photo in soft, natural light. You can use the "spotlight"...
