Power Up Your #LinkedIn Profile [Slideshow]

LinkedIn is one of the absolute best resources online for pursuing a new career, advancing in your current career, networking or exploring partnership opportunities. There is no greater business focused, social media platform that allows you the opportunity to connect with such a wide range of business people.

I recently spoke to a few young people that were looking for new employment opportunities and they were ALL unaware of the potential lurking behind this powerful career platform. So, I started explaining to them how important it was for them to have a presence on LinkedIn.

Anyone that is in the market for a job or even if a person is just thinking that they will be searching for a new job or opportunity, LinkedIn is the BEST place to start their search. With most employers using social media as an avenue to search for employment candidates, chances are that these employers will start with LinkedIn. So, it is imperative that one should make sure their LinkedIn Profile is up to par and powered up!

LinkedIn can often be overlooked as a part of the jobs search process, because it is rather business oriented as compared to traditional job boards. This platform should be used in addition to traditional job boards. I would even go so far to say that LinkedIn should be used as the primary source for job search because it adds a social and networking aspect that traditional online job boards just do not have.

One of the benefits of LinkedIn is that employers tend to pay way more to list jobs on LinkedIn than a traditional job board. This is an indication that they are willing to do what is necessary to find the best candidate for their available positions.  Companies that are willing to invest more to find great talent will be more likely to offer greater benefits, treat their workers better and do more to make sure that they hold on to their employees because they value them. YOU want to be that candidate and ultimately be the employee that is valued.

So, take a look at the slide show below to give you tips on how to Power Up Your LinkedIn Profile!
