LinkedIn rolled out a new feature in the last couple weeks that you don’t want to miss out on, the ability to signal to recruiters that you’re open to opportunities. Simply navigate to the Jobs tab and click “Preferences” and toggle the option on.
Whether you’re looking for internships or full-time employment, you’ll want to make sure this option is selected.
While you’re there, take a few seconds to update your preferences—you can add locations, types of employment, potential job titles, industries, and company size preferences. This tells LinkedIn what you are interested in and allows them to serve you more useful information and potential opportunities on the jobs page.
Increase the relevance of your profile by completing your profile with accurate, keyword-rich descriptions.
For today, navigate back to your profile and do the following:
- Set your city to the location where you’re seeking employment.
- Choose your preferred industry–you can only pick one!
- Add a headline to describe what you’re looking for. Click through for suggestions from LinkedIn on how to complete your profile.
There you have it—three quick steps to increase your visibility on LinkedIn and provide accurate information to the people looking for you. To keep this short, stay tuned for more info on how to increase the relevance of your LinkedIn profile in future posts!
