A fundamental part of getting a job interview is having a developed resume and knowing how to position the aspects you want to highlight.
What tools can I use to achieve this?
LinkedIn is a social network that was founded in 2002, for anyone who wants to make themselves known in the world of work. The first objective of this platform is to make it known to people who want to get a job interview. In this platform, you will find organizations and professionals looking for a business opportunity, so it is very important that you know how to promote certain aspects of your facet to get the job of your dreams.
These are eight nuances that LinkedIn can help you improve:
Make yourself known
One of the ways we humans communicate and process information is visual, so you have to let yourself be seen. According to the latest data, more than 500 million users already have a LinkedIn account, and a profile without a photo does not attract attention. Therefore, choose a professional photo (white background, front, and formal clothing) that instills confidence.
When describing your career path, what you need to do is to highlight the areas in which the company has managed to grow thanks to you. In other words, try to describe your functions by making it clear that without you it would not have been possible.
Be clear about what you are looking for
One of the most important things to find the job you want is to be clear about what kind of professional you are. Don’t generalize when describing what you are looking for, be clear about what you want to do and use the right words to describe it.
Know your strengths
In order to have a good CV, you will have to know how to highlight the aspects that best define you as a professional. To do this, focus on your entire career and position the nuances that have made you grow both professionally and personally, always taking into account what your goal is.
Connect regularly. All those users who keep their profile updated and active will be more likely to appear as suggestions to other users. This will result in the popularity of your profile and make it easier for you to make yourself known.
Another way to find your dream job is with LinkedIn groups. Take advantage of this functionality offered by the platform to boost your profile, search for topics that interest you and get advice on matters that you like to continue training.
Save your searches
Learn how to use LinkedIn’s search engine. With it, you will be able to find more specifically what you are looking for. Use the filters (advanced search), it will save you a lot of time and give you better results from companies that need people like you.
Do not accept invitations from people you do not know. Usually, some users of this platform send requests in order to make themselves known. This activity should be done in a subtle way, only if you are very interested in adding an important person, and the text of the invitation should be concise and clear.
