LinkedIn has more than 135 million members worldwide and is great way to be found by many, especially recruiters. You can use LinkedIn as an active document to raise your profile and interact with others. Using content, examples and recommendations you can pick out highlights from each job and not be constrained by a two page limit like a CV.
Maybe - many recruiters are now searching for potential candidates through LinkedIn so you could be missing out! LinkedIn should be used as part of a job seeking strategy; you aren't constrained by two pages and you can include additional content such as links, presentations and videos. To use LinkedIn effectively • Write in the first person, include insight into your personality and character • Include key words throughout your profile. • Take account of your company confidentiality policy, and do not include any confidential details. • Aim for five to eight recommendations but get as many as you can. • Improve your visibility by asking questions, providing answers and joining relevant groups. • Join groups related to your background and desired goal so you can identify relevant jobs. • Include a link to your LinkedIn profile on your CV
