So. You’re an engineer on Whitetruffle and you reeeeeeeally want to talk to some exciting new startups. You may think that all you have to do is advertise yourself as an engineer, sit back, and wait for the offers to start rolling in… Not necessarily. We’ve got a lot of great companies (Milk! Asana! Visually!) using Whitetruffle, and they are looking for the best. Let them know that *you* are the very best there is!
Here are some tips to help you you make your profile work for you:
Choose your specialization, skills, and location carefully and accurately. What you enter into these fields (along with other factors) help our system make good matches for you. If you leave them empty, it gets confused. :o(
Complete work history and school information. Companies want to know where you’ve been and what you’ve done.
Create a well-written description. Companies often look at these to see if you’re a good cultural fit. This is also the place to let them know what you’re looking for, what you’re proud of, and gives you the opportunity to talk more about your background. This can be particularly helpful if you are fresh out of school, changing careers, or want to shift your professional focus.
