Wow Recruiters On LinkedIn

 

Recruiters constantly use LinkedIn to find potential employees. How can you ensure your LinkedIn profile stands out from amongst the crowd? Social Check recommends five ways to attract recruiters to your profile.

1. Have a professional profile photo

A professional photo is a critical component of your LinkedIn profile. A face always leave a longer lasting impression than a name. First Impressions Count, so upload a professional photo to your profile.

2. Customise your LinkedIn URL

Stand out on LinkedIn by having your own URL. This strengthens your online presence, and makes you searchable on Google. A customised URL is easy to create, and has many benefits.

3. Use keywords

LinkedIn search is a powerful tool; people can be found easily by their name, skills, and other words in their profile. Make sure you choose your words carefully, to take advantage of this.

4. Create a summary of yourself

Your summary is a snapshot of you. It is the first section a recruiter will read about you. Use it to tell your story, and attract recruiters.

5. Get recommended

LinkedIn Recommendations gives recruiters a reference of you before even getting in touch. Get recommended by first recommending someone else.

Follow these five tips to attract more recruiters to your LinkedIn profile. Be active, engage with others, and maximise your opportunities.
