In order for recruiters to find you, you need to understand how recruiters search.
When using LinkedIn IT recruiters have the ability to pinpoint skill sets largely by keywords.
Your 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, 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 simple steps 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.
- Use Keywords
Make sure that keywords or points in your profile are present that match the jobs you are looking for. Don’t just use a list of words, make sure to back them up with examples, otherwise there is no added value.
Ensure that the person reading your profile has examples of your background and experience by including Business impact, results you have delivered and personally focused areas. In tight markets, details can set up apart from the rest of the competition. Have at least 3-5 lines describing what you have done at each company you worked at
- Put yourself in their shoes
Look at your profile as if you are the recruiter; understand what will help your profile to stand out. Add the types of software or CAD systems you are using.
