Having a LinkedIn profile is essential whether you are searching for a job or not. LinkedIn is a favorite site for headhunters!
Don’t ignore these 4 must do activities for LinkedIn.
These four activities are synergistic. They help you get the most out of your LinkedIn profile.
1. Make sure you complete your profile in a way that complements your resume. You don’t want your LinkedIn profile to duplicate your resume—just agree with it. Remember, LinkedIn profiles often come up high in the list when someone Googles your name. So you want your profile to make a positive first impression.
2. Make connections. When you first start out, look for people you already know on LinkedIn. Don’t just ask any and everyone to connect with you. You could be seen as a spammer. Once you’ve connected with a few acquaintances, you can start looking for individuals with whom you want to connect who are “friends with a friend.”
