Add LinkedIn to Your Job Search Strategies

   LinkedIn is a professional networking site that can be a boost to all aspects of your career development, including job search.  A quality LinkedIn profile provides a forum for the following:

  • Building your professional brand
  • Connecting with prospective employers
  • Enhancing your online presence
  • Posting recommendations
  • Highlighting your professionalism

 

 Make Your Profile Work for You

  • Be thorough.  Include relevant internships, jobs, skills, and volunteerism.  Use key words of your field.  Focus on the value you bring to a potential employer.
  • Use a professional headshot.  View profiles of leaders in your industry to see what is acceptable.  Avoid casual or group pictures.
  • Write like a professional.  Use full sentences and correct grammar.
  • Ask for recommendations.  These add instant credibility.  Ask past employers, internship supervisors, and professors to endorse or recommend you.
  • Network.  Connect with groups and businesses related to your field and career plans.
  • Connect with Viterbo University alumni via LinkedIn to make and sustain social/professional contacts and networks.
