U.S. employers reportedly created 325,000 new jobs in the month of December, an eye-popping improvement over prior months! The job market might finally recover in 2012, but how to ensure U.S. employers can find you?

Based on employer feedbacks, myvisajobs is making some major changes to help employers and foreign workers find each other easier. For example, employers will be able to search and invite candidates to apply for jobs or submit resumes, smart engine will notify employers when newly updated career profiles match their preset criteria.

The employers also ask us to provide more information about candidates, for example, their most recent residence, core skills and visa status, etc. 

It is very important that update following information, so the employers can reach you:
  1. Personal Profile: name, country of residence, visa status and work authorization.
  2. Career profile: occupation, skills and job title.
  3. Education and working experience.
  4. Most recent version of resume: some employers tell us they prefer them in Word format
  5. Profile photo: U.S. employer do not like to see your birthdate or photo on resume! However, a professional photo on your web profile will certainly help!
  6. Privacy setting: while contact information will always only be available to employers, you can choose to hide or show other information.
We are also updating all employer profiles with 2011 visa job information. Make sure you check them out! 

Not all jobs are created equal!
