The Use of Testimonials and Endorsements in Your Job Search

by admin on March 26, 2014

EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes discusses the significance of testimonials in our job search.

Harrison believes that reality is something that is quite subjective and providing testimonials can be of tremendous benefit to convince someone of your way of thinking. In fact, all of us are somewhat confused about the actual state of reality and how to judge various things. We are always looking for the opinions of others, in most cases, to help us make up our mind.

The same philosophy can be applied to our job search. Harrison talks about ‘proof’ as a tool for success to be used in job search. If you employ this tool, you will have many more interviews than your competitors. Your entire career can be built upon a steady stream of outstanding testimonials. The more testimonials you have, the stronger your applications will be.

If you do not make use of testimonials, references and so forth in your job search, you are straining to get work and convey your specific virtues in a way that makes no sense. By using testimonials, you can have people do the heavy lifting for you by talking up your various virtues. This is not a job you need to do yourself. Others can easily make your case, and this is a lot more effective than if you try and do this yourself.

The power of these testimonials, references, implied endorsements and so forth is like gold. You should use them every single chance you can possibly get.
