Importance of Having a Harri Profile

As we all know, job hunting and hiring is not what it used to be. Away with the traditional paper resumes, and into the future of online profiles, with the creation and help of the Internet. Nowadays, job recruitment has transitioned into applications and submissions completed on the web, so it is highly important that you have a virtual resume.

Here are a few reasons why having an online profile, like Harri, is important as we move forward with the times:

Paper Resumes Will Be Obsolete

Recruiters have a lot on their plates already, so it is very likely that they may not want to hassle with more papers and material. They may even possibly misplace your resume under all their work. Instead, you should make a note to the hiring manager that you have an online resume. Make sure to provide him/her a link to your profile via email before your actual interview.

Polished and Professional Portfolios

Creating a Harri profile is relatively quick and easy, and results in a polished, professional portfolio. You can showcase not only your work and experiences, but also other things, such as your personality, skills beyond the workplace and what you are passionate about, including hobbies and talents. For example, with the Gallery, you can display photos and videos of your craft, whether you are a pastry chef or barista.

Easily Customizable

Online profiles are highly customizable to suit your choice of field/industry. You can quickly update and make modifications to your resume on Harri. If you have a new job or want to add more pictures, you can, and with just a few clicks of a button.

Greater Exposure and Online Presence

Internet usage and social media consumption continue to grow year after year. When employers are looking to hire, they can easily browse through online profiles and resumes, and reach out to you, as a job seeker, without much effort if they are interested. Additionally, with a Harri profile, you have far greater reach and exposure, thus meaning a greater chance of being hired than someone that does not have online presence.

  As a professional in the competitive industry of hospitality, it's important to understand the influence your personal brand will have in helping you stand out to employers. The truth is the resume is dead, and as a hospitality professional you need to discover unique ways to showcase your skills and personality. That's where Harri comes in. Designed by HR Managers from the country's top restaurant establishments, your Harri profile allows you to seamlessly present information such as your skills, personality, strengths, and work experience.

To make the most of your Harri profile, here are five tips to help you put your best foot forward:

1. Take a dynamic photo.

A picture is worth 1,000 words, so make sure yours tells the right story.  While professional head shots aren't a requirement, keep this in mind that selfies, group photos, unclear or inappropriate pictures will not portray you the right way and come off as unprofessional.

2. Create a strong headline.

The first thing about you employers will see on your Harri profile is 'Three Words About Me'. Make sure you select three strong, dynamic words that compliment your personality. Remember, you can only make one first impression.

3. Compose a passionate (yet short!) description of yourself.

This is your chance to truly shine! Why did you choose to work in the hospitality industry? What are your career goals? What are your biggest accomplishments? These are great examples of how you can create a unique story behind who you are and why you would make a great addition to someone's team.

4. Develop a list of your professional skills.

Harri gives you the ability to tag skills on your profile. Not only does this allow you to display your talents in an organized fashion, but also employers are able to search, filter, and connect with members based on the skills tagged on your profile.

5. Optimize your job descriptions.

Expand on your work experience through strong, concise descriptions of your role at each company. Keep in mind there should be a connection between your job descriptions and top strengths that you want employers to remember you for.

Want to know the best part? Once you create your Harri profile, you will have your very own personalized URL. You can share this URL whenever and wherever, whether it's with employers outside the Harri environment or across your own social media pages. It makes showing off that much easier.
