Employers today are increasingly using LinkedIn as a recruiting tool. A powerful resource for expanding your network, LinkedIn is a branding tool that connects you with recruiters and colleagues, helping you to gain access to hidden job markets.
After exploring and identifying your achievements and unique attributes during our in-depth discussion(s), I will develop a LinkedIn profile for you.
Let's Talk About the LinkedIn Profile for a Minute...
At this point, it’s common knowledge that employment competition is fierce. To compete in this “battle,” you need more than a wonderful resume and compelling cover letter. LinkedIn profiles are a must.
Just a few years ago, LinkedIn reported it had 90 million users and was growing at the rate of one new user per second. Think about that — LinkedIn is reportedly growing its users each and every second of each and every day. That’s awesome . . . and it’s overwhelming. Those of you who have been actively networking using your LinkedIn profiles – good for you! But I have to ask: Is your LinkedIn profile good enough for you?
Your LinkedIn profile must attract prospective employers’ attention, engage them in your story, and compel them to read further – all in 2000 characters or less. To accomplish this, you can “steal” from your resume, connecting what you’ve done in the past with what you want to do in the future. Add your personality, your passion, and your plan into your message. Describe your relevant achievements and demonstrate your potential value to the prospective employer.
If this sounds tricky or you simply don’t have the time or energy, don’t fret. I’m only a phone call, an email, or a LinkedIn visit away.
Unfortunately, frequently missing from your LinkedIn profile is your voice, your personality, and your career plan. You need to create a compelling story within your LinkedIn profile. Otherwise, you may be wasting your time. So let’s get started with some basic LinkedIn tips:
I Take The Time
Before I write a single word on your resume, cover letter, or LinkedIn profile, I work with you to create a career development/advancement plan. I identify the stages of your career and I help YOU DISCOVER YOU. Only then can I highlight your triumphs. I align your career accomplishments with those that are relevant to your career. I concentrate on creating documents that “wow” prospective employers.
Let’s do a for instance. A retiring police lieutenant recently provided me with the following list of accomplishments he thought should be included in his resume:
I turned what he wrote into the following:
Although my client’s statements generally touched upon some relevant keywords that belonged in his resume, I honestly didn’t think a recruiter or prospective employer would be impressed with his version of events. On the other hand, I think my version begins to tell his story, on its way to potentially wowing prospective employers.
A Few More Words About Us
I never outsource the writing of your project. When you hire A Word's Worth, you work with me from beginning to end. Although you will ultimately own your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile -- I email the finalized documents to you -- I also maintain both a hard and soft copy of your documents. If, in the future, you are not able to access your resume and cover letter, regardless of time lapsed, simply call or email me. I will email you your documents at no charge. If you need an update, there is a charge involved, although it may be less than you think.
Over the years, hundreds of the resumes and cover letters I have written for clients have been selected for inclusion in 23 nationally published books.
