Did you know 79% of recruiters have hired someone by using LinkedIn? In fact, LinkedIn is the top choice for finding candidates by 94% of recruiters. According to a recent study, 55% of recruiters changed their minds about a candidate based on something they saw on their social media profile. If you’re not on LinkedIn, then you may be missing out on major job opportunities.
Following is this week’s tip on how you can utilize LinkedIn to search for a job:
Develop a great Headline – Your LinkedIn headline shows up just below your name on your profile and represents your online brand. Since your name and headline are all a user will see when conducting a search on LinkedIn, make your headline count so the user will want to click on your full profile. “Marketer seeking opportunity” is weak, but “Consumer Products Marketer Seeking a Small Brand to Make it Big” tells your next boss that you plan to deliver.
