What is your Linkedin profile and usage saying about you, and who is it saying it to?
Recruiters, both companies and agencies, now use LinkedIn as much as, if not more than, your CV. LinkedIn now has over 400 million users. So within a few minutes employers can do a search of hundreds of thousands of profiles and narrow them down to a handful.
Your LinkedIn profile, when optimised, can get employers attention 24/7.
We start by talking through what you are trying to achieve on Linkedin - a role, a sector, a location etc then we can reverse engineer your profile to be found in those markets more often.
We talk through your career history to build content. What you did, how did you do it etc. We do this purely from your memory with good, open questions to get you thinking. Don't worry about remembering things, it will come back to you with good questions! At this stage we don't want you to be looking at your CV or Linkedin because we want new information from you, not just what you remembered last time you wrote your profile.
Once we have that understanding we can start identifying keywords and search criteria we need to optimise.
You now have the tools - content and skills to re-write your profile. Don't worry we aren't shooting for perfection just yet!
Once you have re-worked your Linkedin profile to deliver to the likely keywords we walk through the pro-active side of Linkedin. You can use Linkedin as a pro-active recruitment tool to get people to come to you. We work out how you can do that and put a plan in place so you can be visible in the markets you want to be and make a positive impression to get your "brand" out into the market.
