  • Connect

You cannot go far on LinkedIn if you do not have the right connections. Connect with company owners, employers, influencers, human resources managers, and top content creators. Sometimes these people hold the key to the dream job you are searching for. That way you learn, exchange value and meet quality people.

  • Have a good CV

While you are job hunting or attracting top companies with your content, ensure you keep a quality CV on standby. Your potential employers are most likely going to ask you for your CV. You would not want to waste so much time before submitting one to them. However, ensure that your CV is in a form in which it can be adaptable. This is so that you can immediately adjust it to fit the job description of the company.

  • Attractive Headline

Headlining is as important as other aspects of utilizing the LinkedIn platform. Use a headline that immediately calls the attention of a potential employer. Avoid using something too basic or too complicated. Remember, your headline is not a one-worded phrase. It could be a compilation of what you do and the skills you have. It could look like this – ‘A creative graphic designer with a passion for visual storytelling’.

  • Fill out the 50 skills.

LinkedIn gives you an opportunity to list out the list of skills that you have. They give you enough space to list out at least fifty (50) skills that you are good at. It is advisable that you utilize all fifty (50) skills because you do not know exactly what your employers are searching for.

  • Turn on the Job Notification.

How would you know when there is an available job for you or when a client is hiring if you do not turn on the notifications? It actually makes things easier for you cause this way you do not need to be on the LinkedIn platform all the time to know which company is employing and which jobs are available.

  • Show your experience, volunteer work, community involvement, and/or internships.

Both in your profile and in the contents you share, make sure you share the work experience that you have. Also, share the volunteer work you have done and where you volunteered, and what exactly you did. If you have ever done a project in your community or participated in any group project in your community, do not hesitate to share it. Also, if you have done any internships, state it there and state the company where you did your internship and what skills and experience you acquired during the course of the internship.
