Are you using LinkedIn to its full potential?
Are you confident about your LinkedIn presence? Do you know how to make the most of this powerful professional networking tool?
If you think LinkedIn is just for stacking up resumes and connecting with potential employers, then it's time to reevaluate. The social media website can be an amazing tool in your job search arsenal that will allow YOU access to different companies (and opportunities) without ever leaving your home or office.
But, if you're not using LinkedIn to its full potential, then you are missing out on numerous opportunities.
Consider this: according to Earthweb.com, an independent technology research outlet, the percentage of recruiters using LinkedIn in 2022 is 87%! There are now 58 million companies listed on the networking site for various purposes, mostly for recruitment and business-to-business networking - which means there are plenty out there looking at your profile!
Here are five signs that you need a LinkedIn strategy session:
1. You're not getting many profile views, and you don't know why. You're not certain your profile isn't showing up in search results.
2. You have a small and inactive network that isn't growing. Likewise, you're not getting invitations to connect, and you don't know how to reach out to potential contacts.
3. You're not certain how to use LinkedIn for job searches.
4. Your profile isn't as strong as it could be, but you don't know where to start.
5. You're not using all of LinkedIn's features to their full potential.
If you're experiencing any of the challenges listed above or simply want to make sure your LinkedIn profile is working as hard as it can for you, we encourage you to book a LinkedIn Strategy Session with an expert.
