I say to job seekers - Is LinkedIn creating valuable job opportunities for you? It certainly should be! When recruiters search LinkedIn looking for candidates in your line of work, you want them to find you - and then choose you.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Research carried out by The Resume Center shows that 99% of job seekers are not using LinkedIn to their best advantage. LinkedIn has now become one of the most important websites for finding a job. LinkedIn is different than Facebook and Twitter, largely considered the two giants of social media, because instead of focusing on social interaction, LinkedIn focuses on being a resource to place job seekers in contact with job creators. When used to acquire a job, LinkedIn contributes to the old saying, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.”
LinkedIn is where HR managers and recruiters are able to headhunt potential talent to bring into their organizations. LinkedIn gives job seekers the opportunity to connect with a company or a person within that company directly, thus assisting in the getting a foot in the door of the business. Companies are also looking for the right job seekers – so the job seekers who stand out from the crowd are the ones who will get the jobs.

Knowing that employers are looking for the best applicants, it is important to have a strong resume that will help job seekers stand out from other applicants. This is perhaps the area most underutilized in LinkedIn. A resume should be custom written for every position to which an applicant applies; therefore it is important to have a strong, versatile resume uploaded to LinkedIn for when an employer accesses a job applicant’s profile.
