Of course, you are looking for new positions in your industry’s trade journals and online. You are talking to recruiters. You are discussing your plans with people you believe can help you.
Most people who want to find a new job put a lot of energy into the above activities but they fail to pay enough attention to their LinkedIn profile. This is a mistake.
- When you apply for a job prospective employers will look at your LinkedIn profile which is available online 24/7.
- When you speak to recruiters, they will check you out on LinkedIn.
- When you contact people you hope will help you they will look at your LinkedIn profile.
This means that, as well as actively searching for your new job, you must ensure that your LinkedIn profile is interesting and engaging and that it presents you positively to people who take the trouble to seek you out.
