LinkedIn has become the main way both recruiters or employers see your experience, education and everything else your profile has to offer. You could look at it as your virtual CV and you wouldn’t hand over an outdated CV during a job search so your profile has to link up. Regularly updating your page not only gets you appearing on potential employers timelines but will also keep you in the loop for any relevant job searches that could apply to you.
