Top Takeaways:

  • Before creating/amending your profile decide what type of a role you are looking for.
  • Always include a LinkedIn headline with the job title you want e.g. if you want to be considered for Marketing Manager roles, have Marketing Manager as your LinkedIn headline.
  • When writing your professional summary, be sure to answer the following questions:
    • Why are you different?
    • What value can you add to an organisation?
  • Use keywords to make your profile more searchable for recruiters looking for candidates.
  • Link your Twitter account to your LinkedIn and if you have a blog or a personal website, be sure to include a link to it also.
  • Regularly update your status. It shows that you are active on LinkedIn and serious about finding a job. Status updates can include linking to interesting blog articles and posting your own.
