In order for recruiters to find you, you need to understand how recruiters search.
Linkedin statistics show that is the largest professional network in the world. When using LinkedIn IT recruiters and hiring managers have the ability to pinpoint skillsets largely by keywords.
The wording that you use in your profile determines where you will show up in their search.
Searching for people on LinkedIn is the same as using SEO (search engine marketing), making sure that you have the right keywords and phrases for Google so that you show up at the top of the results.
If no one can find you, then no one can hire you. With a few easy LinkedIn profile tips you can find yourself, and so can others, at the top of the list.
Make sure to complete your LinkedIn profile
- LinkedIn offers guidance on how to build a profile for new or inexperienced users.
- Having a completed profile will help those searching find your information easier.
- Add your picture, connect with fellow coworkers, and create a headline that will attract employers and recruiters.
Make sure that keywords or points in your profile are present that match the positions you are looking for during your job search.
Don’t just use a list of words, make sure to back them up with examples, otherwise, there is no added value.
Content is Key
Ensure that the person reading your profile has examples of your background and experience by including business impact at your current and previous companies, quantified results you have delivered, and personally focused areas.
In tight markets, details can set you apart from the rest of the competition. Have at least 3-5 lines describing what you have done at each company you worked at.
