How To Make Sure Your Linked In Account Thrives
So we all know how important it is to have professional social media accounts to stay connected and network and even possibly help you land a job. How do you truly use a site like Linked In to your advantage? It's great to follow various companies that you are professionally interested in, and even groups that can help you with interview questions and so forth.
I.E social media.
Employers often hesitate on recruiting a potential employee if their objective on Linked In is to find a career in a completely different field. In their eyes, they see that you have the expertise and experience to qualify for their open position but they also see that you are looking for something else. Unless that field is your only option and you are not open to taking any other opportunities, you have to broaden up that range.
Linked In is unlike when you're manually applying for jobs and have the opportunity to change the objective on your resume to fit each job you are applying for. Do not close out any potential opportunities that may end up being the job you always hoped for.
Hopefully with my experience you can check over your Linked In profile and make sure you look at it from the employers perspective. Remember, jobs will google you and look at your profile!
