LinkedIn is one of the most important parts of your personal branding and is regularly used by head-hunters and corporate recruiters to ‘pre-screen’ candidates. It is also the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with more than 1 billion members in over 200 countries and territories.

It is a very effective tool in a job search, in particular:

  • Raising your career brand and profile in your market
  • Finding and being found by employers and recruiters – including setting up automatic notifications for advertised roles
  • Researching employers to target speculatively, their reputation, services, and products
  • Researching employers prior to interview
  • Developing networks and staying in contact with colleagues and external stakeholders

If you are not already networking on LinkedIn, you probably should be.

If you need to set up or update your LinkedIn Profile, we can help you create a powerful summary that captures who you are, what you do, and what you want from your career. Career Matters know exactly what to include to ensure that hiring managers can find you easily, whilst showing your personality and demonstrating your professionalism.

“Julie was fantastic at quickly identifying what I wanted to get across from my LinkedIn profile but just couldn’t seem to convey myself. Now my profile clearly tells connections what I do whilst also allowing my personality to shine through. Julie was a pleasure to speak with and I highly recommend her.”
Max Beckett-Ward
Commercial Manager, Outright Games

“I would highly recommend Julie’s services. She helped me to review both my CV and LinkedIn profile. She was able to do a deep dive into my career and draw out the skills I’d acquired over the years to form an updated CV. Her insights into what employers need to see from your CV and LinkedIn profile helped me to build my confidence and put myself out there. After working for the same company for 20 years, it was scary to think I was going to be back on the jobs market, but Julie was able to put my mind at rest through her reassuring approach. Thank you so much Julie I really appreciate the time you spent working with me!”
Claire Dunbar, Assoc. CIPD
Head of Learning and Development, The Fostering Network

“I had a really productive 1hr session with Julie where she gained an understanding of what I was aiming to achieve with my LinkedIn profile, gave me feedback on my existing profile, and ideas for how it could be improved to achieve my goals. I’m really pleased with the results, and would recommend a session with Julie to support you in achieving your goals.”
