LinkedIn has become a major part in the job search market. And by that I am not just talking about the job listing feature on their website, but also how important it is for you to be found on LinkedIn.
Let’s face it – your next job interview could be the gateway to landing your dream job and a salary you always wanted to have, but never imagined you could get.
But, before you get there you will need to land that next job interview and that is not so easy these days. After all – the Internet has made it easy for everyone to mass-submit resume to all kind of job postings. There could be hundreds of resumes and job candidates between you and the hiring manager/recruiter
LinkedIn to the rescue. Being on LinkedIn can open doors to opportunities you did not even know they exist, but there is a catch.
LinkedIn is not just a social network that allows you to stay in touch with peers and former co-workers or business partners. LinkedIn has evolved into job opportunity machine for those that know how it works. Having the right skills combined with a killer LinkedIn profile and opportunities will be knocking on your door in no-time.
Side note: As of Spring 2016 LinkedIn has about ~433 Million users.
It will NOT!!!
No ifs, ands, or buts about it – you will need a highly optimized LinkedIn profile if you want to get something out of LinkedIn. This is where the “Interview Playbook” comes in. In our membership area you will gain access to our complete profile optimization guide.
