One of the first places recruiters and employers look when searching for candidates is your profile on LinkedIn. That's why having an up-to-date profile that includes all the information potential employers would be interested in is so important.


Even though your LinkedIn profile alone won't get you the job, it can help you get noticed by potential employers and recruiters. At the very least, it will demonstrate your valuable skill set and some of your personal attributes.

Your profile is also an excellent opportunity to showcase your professional achievements and highlight your unique brand. When someone searches for your name on Google, your LinkedIn Profile is usually the #1 or #2 result. Therefore, your profile is an opportunity to express how you want to be seen professionally.


Here are 4 Tips To Get Your LinkedIn Profile Noticed By Recruiters and help you land your dream job:


1. Use a clear, good-looking headshot.

A successful Chicago-based professional photographer, Kyle Bondeson, wrote in his article LinkedIn Photo Tips 2021, “Rather than doing a half-body shot, focus much more closely on your face. The photo you choose shouldn’t show more than the top 1/3 of your chest.” Because LinkedIn is a professional and business social platform, no photos of friends, family members, or animals should be included in your profile picture. First impressions are important, so I recommend investing in a professional headshot instead of a selfie. This will show prospective employers that you are serious about your career.

2. Write a compelling summary.

Your profile's "About" section is your opportunity to tell your story and highlight your unique skills and experience. Write in the first person and include keywords that correspond to the skills that employers are looking for. Use this section to explain why you are passionate about the work you do and what sets you apart from the competition.

3. Fill out your entire profile.

LinkedIn profiles that are 100% complete get up to 7 times more views than those that are not completed. So, make sure to take the time to fill out your profile completely! Information about your work experience, education, skills, and anything else that would be relevant to potential employers and recruiters should be included.


4. Seek out recommendations and endorsements.

Past employers, clients, or colleagues may recommend or endorse you, which is a great way to show off your skills and experience. If you do not already have any, I would suggest reaching out to your network to see if anyone is willing to write a recommendation or endorse you for the skills you want to highlight.

You are likely great at what you do, but if your LinkedIn profile isn't written correctly, you may miss important connections, perhaps even the job you want.
