How to Transform Your LinkedIn Profile Into a Powerful Magnet for Recruiters & Opportunities

Full article: http://bit.ly/1IXkwUJ

With 380 million members worldwide, #LinkedIn goes way beyond just profiles and status updates. But if you're not even doing the bare minimum and haven’t even set up your profile properly yet, let’s catchup today!

Recently I was invited by the Georgia Gwinnett College and Women in Technology #WIT   to teach young students how to transform their +LinkedIn profile into a powerful magnet for recruiters. Here's a little sneak peek to our workshop: https://youtu.be/kIxgDn8pbE0

So, to attract recruiters to your profile, you're going to have to think as a recruiter! They are busy. They have an agenda. They are looking for something very specific. Want them to find you, reach out to you, and offer opportunities to you? Follow these steps!

Profile settings.

Ensure your profile settings indicate "public" so recruiters can find you.

Profile picture.

Your picture is worth a thousand words. Show your face, be professional, have a friendly smile, don't look mean or angry or even indifferent, and please make sure it's just a headshot, not your full body! Oh, and no other people should be present on your LinkedIn profile picture, please!

Headline.

This is your story in 120 characters. Who are you? What do you stand for? What value do you add? What's different about you? Are you an author? Have you won awards? Do you rescue abandoned animals? Are you certified in something cool? You have 120 character to communicate it, and please include keywords.

Custom URL.

You don't need a long default URL LinkedIn assigns to you. You can customize yours in 30 seconds. It's free. Include your name and then print in on your business card, embed it in your email signature, Twitter, and About.me.  

Contact information.

Do you want recruiters to be able to reach out to you? Make it easy for them! Include your website or portfolio URL. Your Twitter handle and link to it. Your Google Plus link. Your phone number. Your email of course. Your blog. 

Summary.

Have you ever seen profiles written in the 3rd person? Don't do it, please.... Who wrote this about you? Your momma? You write this about yourself, so use “I” and don’t refer to yourself in the 3rd person, it's a bad practice. Whom is your summary addressed to? A recruiter! So, ensure that in 2,000 characters you communicate what they want to know - the value you add. And provide your email address and other contact information there as well. Embed media files, such as videos, PDF files, SlideShare presentations, etc. 

Experience.

Here you have 2,000 characters for each section in this category, so explain the results you've accomplished and the value you delivered, not the tasks you performed. Mention any spacial projects. Software. List bullets for an easy read. 

Awards.

Have you been recognized for some extraordinary accomplishments? Don't keep this a secret. Recruiters want to know. I promise! List them all in this section. 

Certifications.

Are you an expert in some kind of cool software? Tool a project management course? Got certified in negotiation? That's your competitive advantage, too.

Education.

Where did you go to school? What's your GPA? Leading any groups? Got a scholarship? Was featured in some special project?  Tell the world about it!

Endorsements.

These are your skills. Type them, see what LinkedIn offers in autofill, and choose from the list. These are skills recruiters list as the ones they search for. Salesforce? Negotiation? Compliance? Governance? Project management? Here are some hot IT-related skills for 2015. 

Recommendations.

People have so many good things to say about you! Don't believe me? Just ask! Each recommendation has a room for 3,000 characters - all about you. Make it your regular routine to request recommendations. They can make a difference.

Volunteer experience.

Life is bigger than just us. There's our community, there's our country, and the whole world. How do you make an impact? Do you save animals' lives? Do you fundraise for a homeless shelter for your birthday and donate? Do you entertain seniors on Saturdays? Do you lead a small group at your church? Share what makes you YOU! Show recruiters that you're not self-centered. You care.

Interests.

Here you have 1,000 characters to list the kinds of things you enjoy doing: hiking, technology, cooking, skydiving, ice skating, skiing, and the like. 

Groups.

Joining 50 groups boosts your ranking on LinkedIn. Make sure groups are relevant to you. Stay active and participate in conversations in your groups.

Influencers.

Follow influencers whose ideas you want to hear, especially in your industry.  Share their content in your status updates. Show recruiters that you are in-the-know and you are aware of all the current industry trends. 

 So, you watched the video and read the article. I listed many action items for you in the 16 sections described above. Was this a helpful read?

Comment below and let me know how these tips work for you.

At some companies #CEO may respond to #Glassdoor reviews himself, at others each review response may to go through stages of approval by the executive who’s responding, then #Legal, then #HR, etc. The process will vary. #EmployerBranding

AJ and Shannon are the reason why I purchased my car at Sandy Springs Toyota. Not only are they VERY personable and have pleasant personalities, but their approach is CONSULTING rather than SALE. They both listened well and advised me and at no point did I feel pressured. I had to come back several times and asked plenty of questions, and I have to say they both were there for me. Highly recommend this place! Now I'm happy with the follow-up, too. For example, AJ stays in-touch and checks periodically upon how well I got used to my new car. Very helpful and very unique! I would never imagine buying a car from another dealership! Thank you, AJ and Shannon!

There are no perfect home, apartments, or people. What's important is how imperfections are handled. AMLI at Perimeter Place is my home now, and I state it with confidence! When I moved here, there were several things that did not satisfy me: from washer and dryer to wall paint. AMLI handles its service requests within 48 hours, which I never had to experience, because they took care of my service requests almost instantly. As of yesterday, all of them have been completed and I'm all set at my new home. Now let's talk about what my life is like here. I used to drive 55 min to work and 55 min from work - only 17 miles, by the way. Now I leave home at 8:50 am and at 9 am I'm already at the office making tea and starting my day. That's incredible! From my bedroom I see the Manhattan building, Bank of America, and blue sky. It's so inspiring! When I need a bottle of wine or a bulb, I walk 1 min to Target and don't have to drive anywhere. Want to go out? Italian, American, upscale dining or fast-food place - everything is within 2 min walking distance. It saves me and my husband valuable lifetime and allows both of us to have less stress and more joy. Last week we had a friend over. We had wine at home, walked to Regal 10 movie, bought tickets, went to LaMadaline cafe, ate and had more wine, and went to a movie. Then we simply walked home. Nothing can compare to this type of a city-lifestyle! We love it here!

I loved their work ethic and prices! Raheem was the one who helped me under critical circumstances to get a unique ring made of ROSE gold. It was a wedding band. I needed it ASAP, and I got it even faster. Even though we had to pay twice as much as we originally agreed, the price still was the best in Atlanta. Those guys made my day! The ring is absolutely perfect!

Grand Oaks in Savannah is a nice SPA-resort type community! First of all, it is beautiful, clean and quiet outside and inside. Very pleasant environment! Secondly, the staff is amazing! So kind, nice, helpful! I was suprprised, when I had to call about some manor problems we had in our apartment and just 2 hours later everything was taken care of! That is like a magic, don't you agree? Very good quality service. Thirdly, the convenience of everything is unbelievable! Dog poop stations are everywhere so are picnic-tables etc. Very nice! Fourthly, the neighbors are very friendly - I was skeptical in the beginning as I read some unpleasant reviews on-line regarding this matter, however, everyone we met so far has been smily and nice, and people do greet each other and they do talk unlike the feedback you may find on-line. So that was kind a concern of mine, but not anymore. Fifthly, inside the apartment the wall isolation ensures you have your peace. I was yelling from our bedroom to get the kids' attention as I couldn't get up, but..... no one could here me :-) We don't hear anyone in a hallway, nor outside. What a big difference can it make on a day-to-day basis! Great place to be! These are all positive things to share with you, guys. The only negative comment is that despite promising free WiFi at the club, the business-center and the pool, Grand Oaks does NOT have any WiFi there at all. They do have 2 Mac computers, but if you are like me and need your own files to work with and your work is on-line, you will be let down as I was. I live in Atlanta and moved with my husband to Grand Oaks. I am a consultant and everything I do is on-line. I need WiFi 24/7. Because Grand Oaks has no WiFi and Comcast said they needed 7 days to come to hook the Internet up at our home, I had to go to Stabucks, which is 6.9 m away. However the Internet there is very slow as there are tons of people using it. So.... after all the struggle, I had to go back to Atlanta as I couldn't keep missing work for not having WiFi. Overall, I wasted $150 on gas both ways and was disappointed and separated from my family. That is unacceptable in the 21st century, when WiFi is a given at modern places such as Grand Oaks. Other than that, we are pleased with everything there. Thank you.
