They will be also looking at you, so it is very important that your profile stands out from the crowd.

If you don’t currently have a profile photo of yourself then make that a priority. Always make sure to dress professionally in the picture and smile. Your picture may be the first thing that the potential employer sees, and you don’t want to create a bad impression.5 Headline: Here you will have 120 characters to create a headline that makes you stand out.

This paper will examine how to create a viable LinkedIn profile. It’s likely if you’re looking to obtain a job that you’ve run into the term or even the website itself at one point or another. Maybe the name of the website was uttered by one of your colleagues at work or mentioned by a classmate in school. Regardless, if you’re looking to get a job or advance yourself in some profession, it might be a boon to you to use the website LinkedIn. LinkedIn will enable you to meet various individuals of each profession who may be interested in hiring you. LinkedIn is primarily about getting acquainted with the idea of networking. Networking is about connections, and the people you know, be it if you’ve worked with them in the past, currently do so, or intend to do so in the future. It’s possible that the person you might be interested in working with will seek you out after observing your profile, or you might take the initiative and seek them out. In the end, the more individuals that you connect to and associate with, the more likely it is that you will either find a position that benefits you, or someone else will see your profile, and if done professionally, will be interested in it. In many regards, it’s a lot like other social media platforms. Another important thing to remember is to always try and keep your LinkedIn profile up to date if you’re going to use the website. Consistency is key, and nothing shows that more by keeping an up to date and professional page....

How to Create LinkedIn Profile – Step by Step tutorial

There are dozens of social media sites out there and dozens of new social media sites coming out all the time. However, most of them are not used for professional use they are used for personal use. There is a social site used for business use and that site is called LinkedIn.            LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking service. Its main use is for professional networking meeting new people and possible job opportunities. Although, employers may also look you up on other social media sites as well such as; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. so it is very important not to post just anything online. Your employer doesn’t want to see a picture of you on Facebook doing a beer bong or partying. You want to keep a clean image on social sites because you don’t know who is going to go and look all that information up someday when you are trying to get a job. But, it is better to have that posted on say Facebook than LinkedIn.            When creating your new LinkedIn profile, you want to pick a profile picture that is professional, and you want that picture to be a recent well-taken picture of you. You want to do that because if you are at a networking event or a job interview and an employer looks you up on LinkedIn you want them to be able to find you easily and they can look at your picture and clearly tell that it is you.   Secondly, on your profile on the top header under your profile picture, there is a header you can put...

Tips on Writing Resume

Writing a resume for a job opening can be a very difficult and nerve-racking thing to do. From deciding what type of resume you wish to use, to deciding the word choice you will use. However, there are some excellent tips out there to help you with your new resume you are creating. I’ll discuss a handful of tips here that will hopefully help when writing a new resume.            The first tip that I have is to start your resume out with a branding statement. Rather than beginning with a traditional objective statement, consider using a branding statement to make your resume stand out. This is the first thing that an employer will see so you want them to want to keep reading.            The second tip is to use key words that match the job description. This is very important because if the employer can tell that you sent this same resume to 30 different companies they will stop reading and throw it away. You want to personalize it to that company. Another good tip that may sound simple is to just be honest. They will be able to tell if you are lying and nobody is going to want to hire someone that just lied to them on their first impression. There is the saying that a first impression lasts a lifetime, you don’t want your first impression to be lying.            Another great tip is remembering not to overshare. It is great to tell them all about your achievements and personal accomplishments, however, you want to try to keep it as brief as possible. You...
