As the workforce continues to go digital, LinkedIn stays at the top for your professional online network. Since it has continued to stay at the top, that means your profile needs to be top-notch. We’re going to talk about a couple of ways you can revamp your page and make it stand out!
When starting your job search, make sure to update your education and work experience. Recruiters and potential employers will be looking at your profile to see what you’ve been up to so make it as concise and engaging as possible. Highlight what you did and the impact you made at the company to the best of your ability. Depending on what you’re applying to, be sure to include relevant certifications and skills that would fit job descriptions on potential jobs. Be sure to also work on your headline and summary section, they’re very important!
It may seem obvious but your profile picture is an important aspect because it’s the first thing a recruiter or potential employer will see when they find your page. Make sure your face is clear and visible in the picture with a non-distracting background. If you want to be in a suit and tie, go for it but it isn’t necessary, you can also wear a nice shirt that looks good in a headshot.
Cover the basics of a strong LinkedIn profile and you will be on your way to landing that job!
