How to create LinkedIn profile for IT Computer Support Specialist in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Using LinkedIn can be very beneficial to you.  There are several strategies that can assist you in making you profile noticeable and appealing to a future employer.  One big thing that you can do to make your profile stand out is include a professional looking picture of yourself.  Employers can then associate you with a face.  Another good strategy is including any training or certifications that you may have obtained along the way.  The more relevant information you can put into your profile the better you will stand out as a good candidate compared to the rest of the field. The headline of your profile is one of the first things a visitor will see.  Use this to your advantage.  It is a good way to sell yourself immediately.  Put professional accomplishments in this section, you don’t have to go into major detail as you can do this later in your profile with the summary section.  Putting your achievements in this section can help hook the reader into reading deeper into your profile and learning about your professional background and give them an idea if you will fit into their company.  Remember to keep the information that you put in the headline strictly professional and relevant to the type of job that you are seeking.  Think of your headline as the first chapter to your profile. LinkedIn has various sections that you can add to your profile you don’t have to use them all however.  My first suggestion to use is use the sections that are important to what you are searching for and that you can provide the...

How to Create Quality LinkedIn Profile for Milwaukee based Information Technology Professional

Social media has effected some very big changes in how we search for jobs. It has broadened our networks, increased our visibility, and allowed us to expand our job searches far beyond what newspaper want ads would allow. One of the biggest and best tools for job searchers within social media is Linked In. As of the end of 2015, LinkedIn reported 414 million users. That’s a lot of people which means that’s a lot of potential for landing the job you’ve been wanting. But, just signing up for LinkedIn isn’t enough. You have to make sure that the information you’re sharing on your profile is relevant and memorable. You also have to know when your profile alone is sufficient and when a resume is also necessary. I will now guide you through the process of starting and creating your own LinkedIn profile. The first step is, of course, creating an account. You will want to point your web browser to http://www.linkedin.com. The very first page you see will allow you to sign up. All you need is your name, an e-mail address, and a password. After entering that information, you will be guided through a series of questions meant to help shape your profile. This is when you will need to start asking yourself some questions about what type of job you are seeking and what information is relevant to that job search. For instance, if you are applying for a job as an IT tech, you probably won’t need to include your part time job as a line cook. But if, like me, you worked as a...

How to fill out an Application and pass Skills Test for IT Computer Support Job

How to fill out an Application and pass Skills Test for IT Computer Support Job Before you can get a job, you have to apply. When applying for a job you have to fill out a(n) application. An application is a paper or a document that contains information about you. This information can include but is not limited to name, email, phone number, schooling history, work history (if any), volunteer work/hobbies, and references information. When filling out applications there are a few basic rules that apply. Always use a pen when filling out an application. Blue or black inks are the preferred colors to use. Never use a pencil when filling out an application. A pencil can smear and any information you put down can be easily erased or tampered with. Next when filling out an application, you want to use your best penmanship. If your handwriting is sloppy or loopy, try practicing writing a few sentences before you start filling out an application. If the potential employer cannot understand your handwriting your application might get tossed out. No outside marking or doodling on your application, if you need more room or have additional information use a piece of paper. Never fold, crease, or crumple your application, you want it to remain neat and clean. Since a lot of applications are done on the internet now, some of the pervious rules do not apply. Even though those rules do not apply, there are rules you still need to follow. Things like the font size, color, and styles apply. The typical font color is black. Do not us loud bright...
