Examine your LinkedIn profile is correct as says it below. then you have 99% chance to get job in your core industry.
LinkedIn is a social networking website specifically for companies and job-seekers. It functions a little like an online resume (with tons of other features as a bonus). You can use it to showcase your skills, find new job opportunities and even connect with potential clients.
Add Search Keywords to Your Linkedin Profile
- Adding keywords to your LinkedIn profile helps recruiters and companies find you.
- Focus on keywords that match your strongest skill sets. For instance, if you’re a web designer, make sure to include “responsive design” on your LinkedIn profile.
- If you’re stuck on which keywords to include, there are several helpful keyword and trend tools you can use including Google Trends, KeywordSpy, and SEMRush.
Join Relevant linkedin Groups and Contribute your ideas and messages.
- You can join groups on LinkedIn in a range of fields and interests. While groups can vary on privacy and settings, they all help bring people together.
- Add content to groups when possible and relevant. Share relevant news to the group. Get updates. However, avoid spamming groups with links to your websites or bragging about your skills. (Nobody likes shameless self-promotion!)
- Contribute to ongoing conversations in these industry-aligned groups will not only help you learn more, but it will also position you as an expert in the field or, at the very least, a passionate player in the space.
And who knows; being active in a group could lead to a job opportunity down the road.
Recommendations from our seniors and Heads
Recommendations are like a testimonial to your work and skills that everyone can see.
The most common way of getting a recommendation is to recommend someone else. Seek out recommendations from people who know your work well and can speak highly of you.
- Endorsements are like recommendations, but less involved, since all an endorsement takes is a single click.
- People can endorse you for individual skills. It’s your job to add your skills to your profile first.
- Like above, it helps to endorse others first; then your own endorsements will start to pour in.
Remove Unnecessary or Outdated Information From Your Experience Section
- Just like on a resume, don’t include your high school job.
- You want to format your LinkedIn profile in a way that is relevant to the jobs you want in the future, not to previous endeavors. (Unless that experience is applicable to your new goals.)
- Having a concise, pertinent resume is better than an info-dump of unrelated experience, so scale back previous experience that may not contribute to the role you are currently seeking. However, be careful: gaps in work history can sometimes be a red flag. So clean up wisely.
Follow Your Dream Companies
- On LinkedIn, you can follow companies and receive updates from them.
- So follow companies you’d love to work for and stay ahead of the game. Stay on top of the latest happenings.
- These nuggets are the kind of thing you can mention in a cover letter or in an interview down the road.
Set Up a LinkedIn Vanity URL
- LinkedIn allows you to customize your profile URL.
- This option is cleaner than a URL string of random letters and numbers, and URLs can be customized to include your first and last name.
- Furthermore, having a LinkedIn URL with your full name is also important from an SEO perspective -- it makes it easier to find you on Google.
Update Contact Information
- If you’re in a job search, you want your contact information on LinkedIn to be easy to find and up-to-date.
- Make it as easy as possible for recruiters and hiring managers to find you and get in touch.
link your resume with LinkedIn profile.
- When you apply for a job, the employer might also check out your LinkedIn profile to learn more about you. A ResumeGo study reports that resumes that include a link to a comprehensive LinkedIn profile have a 71% higher chance of getting an interview than a resume without a link or a resume with a link
- For all these reasons, it is important to make sure that your LinkedIn profile is complete and detailed. In fact, you can consider your LinkedIn profile as your online resume. It should have the same information that is on your resume and, if you're looking for a new job, you will want prospective employers to be able to review your credentials for employment, including your qualifications, experience, and skills.
Add a professional photo.
- Unlike a resume, which often does not include a photo, LinkedIn users expect you to include a photo. Include a professional headshot. You can also change the background image to make it appropriate to your interests. Don't include a photo that's too casual. LinkedIn is all about professional networking, not socializing with your friends and family.
Use appropriate language.
- A resume is usually quite formal. You can be a bit more casual on your LinkedIn. For example, many people write their profiles in the first person (“I have ten years of experience in healthcare marketing”). It’s okay to be a bit more casual or personal in your LinkedIn profile – in fact, it can help engage a recruiter.
All of you wish your success on dream job thank you. Please share so that your friends can reach their goal with your help.
