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 660 million 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.
