Are you concerned that you're not getting the most from your LinkedIn profile? Is the content of your LinkedIn profile merely replicating the content of your CV? Did you know that 85% of Hiring Managers will check you out on LinkedIn?
Statistically, once you make it onto a shortlist, 85% of those hiring managers will want to have a nosy at your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn now has over 250 million members so recruiters and hiring managers naturally use it as one big pond to fish for and select candidates. As a consequence, having a great LinkedIn Profile is not optional, it is essential.
As with your CV, structuring your LinkedIn profile in a similar fashion to that of a job seeker in the permanent market is certainly not going to win you any favours with HMRC, and that's before we start worrying about providing clients with something that will compel them to take an interest in your talents.
In order to provide Contractor Weekly readers with high quality value added resources, we would like to invite you to a FREE one-hour online webinar on Tuesday 25th March at 7.15pm all about writing an effective, business-winning LinkedIn profile for the contract market.
