The more people who view your LinkedIn profile, the better your chances of connecting with the person who can lead you to your dream job.
Use keywords in your LinkedIn Headline and Summary to make it easier for people looking for someone like you to find you!
Write your LinkedIn Headline for your ideal reader. Focus on what you have to offer a prospective employer, not what you want.
Prospective employers do judge you by your social media profiles! Nine out of 10 hiring managers will look you up online!
Absence of information about you online can be as damaging as negative information. Manage your online reputation carefully!
