5 Tips to Maximize Your Career Profile - EP078
What does your personal brand on LinkedIn say about you? Does it quickly express who you are in a way that positions you to make the right connections?
Recently, I've been in hiring mode, and I've received an influx of applications.
When I looked at all those resumes, there were some whom I wanted to reach out to immediately to set up an interview. So, of course, the next thing I did was check out their LinkedIn profile.
What I found there surprised me. Some had a bit of a profile, some had nothing, and some impressed me. And I thought this would be a great thing for us to talk about on the show today.
Sometimes I think we get stuck in thinking LinkedIn isn't worth it. Or we think, well, I have a presence there, that's enough. But neither one of those things is true.
Your LinkedIn profile is a great way to position yourself and your personal brand to get to the top of a recruiter's search results and network with the movers and shakers in your industry.
