LinkedIn is the business and employment-oriented social networking service, where 85% of recruiters search for job candidates. It also serves as the online home of your professional brand.
Follow these steps
Have a profile photo where you look approachable and professional. Add a branded banner photo too.
Have a strong headline. Include your target title, areas of expertise and value offerings. I know. Tricky to do with 120 characters but very possible.
Write an attracting “About Me ” section. Don’t copy/paste the summary or profile from your resume. Make them crave more!
Don’t disregard the skills section. Click the target job posting to see what skills you’re missing and add them to your profile before you hit Easy Apply.
Don’t neglect your experience section. Complete it and tell your career story as it relates to your target. Whatever you do, don’t enter “See Resume ” or leave it blank.
Network like no tomorrow. Build relationships with people you don’t know but need to know.
