Congratulations, you’re a LinkedIn member!
You are one of more than 467,000,000 people on LinkedIn? (1) [Post written January 31, 2017]
Before you pop the cork on your champagne, realize it takes more than membership to attract Hiring Managers, Recruiters or anyone else to your LinkedIn Profile.
The great thing about LinkedIn is there’s so much you can do to attract people to your profile and tell your story.
You’re not the first person to travel this path, my former employer gave me many opportunities to learn all about landing my next job. These posts should help you optimize your LinkedIn Profile so you can land that job.
To start with, don’t be like,
Most job seekers who think recruiters spend 4 to 5 minutes reviewing their LinkedIn profile.
According to a study commissioned by TheLadders,
Recruiters spend about 6 seconds on their initial “fit/no fit” decision.
How do you pass the 6 second test?
What will they think when they see your photo?
What will they think when they read your headline?
Will your LinkedIn Summary win them over or put them to sleep?
Will your recommendations get hiring managers interested in you?
Are you using the Jobs section of LinkedIn?
Is your LinkedIn Experience section making your phone ring?
Should you spring for LinkedIn’s Job Seeker Membership?
Are you using every section of your LinkedIn Profile as effectively as possible?
Are you new to LinkedIn?
Are you using the 40+ spaces in the Name field to your full advantage?
