Andrea Mitchell-Khan, a Senior Technical Recruiter at Blackmere Consulting, has earned the Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE) certification from the National Resume Writers’ Association (NRWA).
This training and certification helps professional resume writers unleash the power of LinkedIn for their job-seeking clients.
“Prior to the pandemic, online profiles surpassed both the paper resume and the digital resume as the official introductory handshake between a candidate and the recruiter or hiring manager,” said Mitchell-Khan. “Resumes have taken a backseat to the online profile when it comes to making a great first impression. Most decision makers will scan the online profile and decide within a matter of seconds whether or not they want to take time to review a candidates’ resume. That means that the same care, time and energy that goes into creating that perfect resume, must go into developing a fascinating online profile. The online profile has the same impact as the trailer of a movie or the preface to an incredible book. It gives the audience brief highlights of the best parts of the candidates’ life story. This online profile is multidimensional, blending words, pictures, endorsements and proof of accomplishments onto one dynamic dashboard in a way that the resume can’t. The pandemic is impacting how Americans work, pushing more of us to work from home than ever before. I am excited to help candidates explore and update their brands via online profiles, so that they can utilize this social media tool as one of their most powerful ways to get noticed by the right people at the right time as they step into their fresh new career or attract new customers to their existing businesses. The NCOPE (Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert) certification presents me with the opportunity to help candidates optimize the showcasing of their potential during this era.”
Blackmere Consulting is proud of Mitchell-Khan’s dedication to earn this certification, and is pleased to offer these services to clients.
