LinkedIn Coaching Session
What We Will Cover
As a candidate in search of employment in 2017, it is crucial that your resume is coupled with a strong LinkedIn profile to give you the best chance of landing interviews. I can help you convert your final resume into a dynamic LinkedIn page, teach you how to uncover and research potential job openings, and how to strategize towards better visibility. We will cover your choice of photo, how to write a summary that stands out, and how to reach out to potential employers.
Every year, the means for exchanging information changes, improves, and most certainly speeds up. This is no different when it comes to the methods in which human resource departments work, as they too are always willing to hasten a task while achieving the same goals. In order to remain efficient but get through resumes faster, HR departments are turning their heads to the increasingly popular business and employment-oriented social networking platform – LinkedIn.
Put yourself in the recruiter’s shoes. If you had to choose between reading a stack of 100 pages and ten URLs to visit, you would certainly choose the latter. LinkedIn makes a recruiter’s decision easy because not only does it represent the exact same information as a hard copy resume, but it perfectly displays photos, links to websites, and allows the recruiter to easily keep track of a candidate over time.
With a user base of 400 million, LinkedIn has made its mark, and now, most companies will either use it to recruit future employees, or they will use it to evaluate them before they come in for an interview. A total of 92% of recruiters use social media to vet talent, and LinkedIn is ahead of the pack with 87% usage. There are currently more than 6.5 million jobs posted, making LinkedIn a hotbed for career advancement.
If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, I will certainly help you create one that mirrors your persuasive resume, and together your tools will be enough to land you interviews. I guarantee it.
