LinkedIn Boot-Camp

 

When you come up in a recruiters search, LinkedIn will be the first place they will go to look you up. 

Here are some steps to get the best out of your profile and ensure a recruiter or hiring manager is not put off of by what they see. 

Firstly ensure your display picture is professional and presentable. Does the name on your profile match your name on your CV?

Under your name should be the title of your latest role, if you are looking for a position you could add that in for example 

"Project Manager - Looking for a new opportunity"

The top of your profile will display your most recent employers logo and your last educational institute so make sure these are up to date. 

About 

Use this section to describe your latest position with past skills and achievements. This is the first section that will be read so try to keep is short and flowing. 

Activity 

This will show how regularly you engage on the platform. If you are not looking for a new position its likely you won't check your linked in everyday. However if you are, try and make a conscious effort to share, comment and like on relevant posts by fellow connections. You can always use the search box to search a topic relevant to your industry and engage in conversations. These will all show up on your activity on your page.
