How To Write A Killer LinkedIn Profile

LinkedInHaving a good quality LinkedIn profile is as important these days as having a good quality resume. In fact, I think it is more important to have a quality LinkedIn profile especially if you want to tap into the unadvertised job market for those top job opportunities.

Employers, HR managers, headhunters and recruiters use LinkedIn to help identify top quality candidates. Technology developments in the HR & Recruitment industry mean that many recruiters now have the ability to import your LinkedIn profile into their talent database, so your profile needs to be presented well.

There are 4 key elements to writing a killer LinkedIn profile and this will dictate where you show up in the search engine, determine how many views you get and ultimately it will dictate how many approaches you receive based on your online profile. The key elements are a combination of an excellent headline, the number of contacts that you have, the number of recommendations you have and the content within the profile itself. Key words within your profile are also very important.

I strongly recommend that your LinkedIn profile needs to be developed in conjunction with your resume, as these two important profiles need to compliment and support each other when you are considering making a career move. Many employers will use LinkedIn to verify aspects of your resume and there is a growing trend towards approaching candidates that have a LinkedIn profile with recommendations.

Don’t miss out on a fabulous opportunity. Embrace LinkedIn and use the tool to enhance and protect your online brand. Consider getting a professional LinkedIn profile writer to update your LinkedIn profile and professional resume, to help you attract business leads and new career opportunities. I offer an exclusive LinkedIn Profile writing service designed to get you noticed and appearing in all the right places!
