Looking for an internship or hoping to land a permanent job? Your LinkedIn profile can come in handy when you are on the hunt to get the perfect job.
Here are a few tips on how you can utilize your LinkedIn profile to the max:
Focus on the headline
LinkedIn makes headlines easily searchable, therefore it is recommended to use industry keywords to describe your role, talents and company.
Upload a Professional Photo
Unlike other social networks, LinkedIn requires a professional approach to everything. This includes uploading a profile picture that is close to how you look while reporting for work.
LinkedIn acts as your professional network. This requires you to stay active on it and share whatever career related activities you are currently engaged in.
The summary section of your profile can make or break your impression on potential employers. Add your expertise and details of your current role but ensure you don’t exceed 8-10 lines. Always include your contact details at the end.
Have a positive outlook
Praise the good aspects of your current job and don’t sound negative anywhere in your profile to avoid drawing away potential employers.
It is beneficial to spend 20 minutes a day, 4 times a week on your LinkedIn Profile to get the best results out of it. An active LinkedIn profile attracts more visitors than an outdated inactive one.
Update your status message, clean out your inbox and direct reach outs to get the most out of LinkedIn!
