LinkedIn Helps You Find a Job
Of all of the social media sites out there, LinkedIn is the best for presenting yourself to possible employers. Think of LinkedIn as an online resume, complete with recommendations. I know, I know…people can lie on their LinkedIn profiles and all of the recommendations are full of fluff. But, isn’t that true in real life as well? Can’t I lie on my resume and only offer contact information for people I know will review my work performance in a positive light?
Here is what you need to do so that your LinkedIn profile is ready for prime time:
- Make sure you have a good quality headshot.
- Fill out as much school and employment history as you can.
- Contact people through LinkedIn that will give you a good recommendation.
- Keep your profile as up to date as possible.
Following those steps will help keep your LinkedIn profile looking sharp.
