If Facebook and Instagram have changed the way we socialize, then LinkedIn has changed the way we look for jobs and meet/evaluate other professionals.
With more than 660 million members, LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network. More than 675 million users actively use LinkedIn each month and 40% of them use it daily. An estimated 61 million are senior level influencers, 40 million are in decision-making positions and 87 million are millennials. It is the most-used social media platform amongst Fortune 500 companies. Over 80% of today’s recruiters use LinkedIn. A significant portion of LinkedIn’s $6.75B+ in annual revenues comes from hiring solutions (employers and recruiters) and it is regularly used as a recruiting research tool to proactively identify and evaluate candidates as well as to follow-up on the initial impression created by resume submissions.
Why you should have a stellar profile
If you are submitting your resume for a new job, you should know that a review of your profile is now a standard part of any candidate evaluation process. There is no easier way to assess your credibility.
A strong, optimized LinkedIn profile is a must and a definitive standard for an executive seeking networking, career and business development opportunities. Far more than a way to “collect connections”, it is an opportunity to put those connections to work for you by placing your resume, skills, career value and potential-to-contribute in front of everyone in your network, every contact in their network, and so on.
According to Forbes, LinkedIn is especially helpful when it comes to landing higher-paying jobs. It can be a serious career booster. If your profile is weak and incomplete, you will never fully leverage LinkedIn and you will miss out on opportunities to attract opportunities and build your network every day.
