If there’s one thing you can do to enhance your employability, it’s making a name for yourself within your industry.
Whether you’re just starting out in your career, or you’ve got years of experience, it’s never too late to push your personal brand out there for the world to see.
LinkedIn has fast become the platform for industry leaders to share their ideas and network with like-minded individuals. It has also become the hub for recruiters to search for suitable candidates, making it the ideal place to start pushing out your name if you’re looking for a new challenge.
Think about it this way – you have your CV, and your cover letter. You send these out individually to numerous companies, and look to follow up with them via email. LinkedIn has a lot of this covered for you. Your profile can be the place where you demonstrate your skills, include a summary of your role and experience, and you can also activate a tool which allows recruiters to see that you are looking for work.
Although the old fashioned applying for a CV is still the best method (in our opinion), if you’re looking to move somewhere quickly, having another avenue available to talk to recruiters is always a bonus.
