LINKEDIN PROFILE An increasing number of employers are using LinkedIn to search for candidates and make direct approaches, post jobs and accept applications directly. They also use it to informally vet potential employees and shortlisted candidates. Remember you are judged by the company you keep, so choose your connections wisely. While statistics are hard to find specific to Australia, a recent social recruiting survey found that 89% of hiring companies use LinkedIn for recruiting purposes. Your LinkedIn profile is NOT your CV, nor should it read the same way. While your CV is a fairly dry, factual chronology of your career history to date, LinkedIn allows you to give prospective employers a chance to get a feel for the real you, your personality and flair. It should tell a compelling, interesting and open story about you, in a conversational tone, without being unprofessional. Your LinkedIn profile also needs to be key word rich, have a customised URL so you can be found in searches beyond LinkedIn, and prompt readers to reach out and contact you.
