Starting from that premise, the most accurate way to be the person they call, is in following the next steps:

  1. Be careful about the way in which you have structured your Résumé, and the keyword configuration that stand out in it, about what you do professionally.job search plan
  2. Another important point to focus your Job search plan, is to make a planning of the dates of contact with companies, interviews and portals to which you signed it up, to follow up.This is a good technique to motivate the search, since you visualize your efforts as a job seeker, taking into account a relevant point to highlight, the job search, is a job in itself!.

  3. Do not forget to be present in a consistently manner, in professional social networks, and those where you sell your personal and professional brand.This is necessary, and also we could say, that it is mandatory nowadays, since that, is where the Recruiters will go to get to know you better, than in a sheet where the person expose what he/she knows that the reader wants to see, and many times, not how really the person is, as is the case of the Résumé.The professional network par excellence, is Linkedin, so it is one of the profiles that should be better configured, so that the Recruiters, to whom you send your Résumé, confirms who you are, and so that others who search without knowing that you exist, can find you.
