So if you are reading this you are probably pretty tech savvy or you have a Linked In profile or at least have heard of Linkedin. If you haven’t, I’ll just simplify it and say it’s like a professional person’s Facebook.
But much like Facebook went from being for college kids to chat and connect about classes and socializing, now anyone who wants to connect with family and friends to stalk their every move can and has a profile (yes, I’m being overly dramatic…we know facebook is just to share pictures and business ideas.) Linkedin is becoming much the same.
It is definitely a great tool to keep in touch with past co-workers and network, but it’s fast becoming the tool of choice for many recruiters. Why is this a big deal? Well just like the binge drinking photos of you out with friends on the weekend, your Linkedin profile should be considered something that prospective employers will be viewing.
Much like a resume, if your Linkedin profile looks messy and convoluted then folks looking to hire you might just pass you by.
So make sure your titles are descriptive, your headline is inviting and you are open to connect with folks who could benefit from your connection today, and you might benefit tomorrow. Also, don’t forget to include some contact information!
