What is LinkedIn? Why do I need a LinkedIn Profile?

A professional online profile is an essential part of your personal marketing toolkit in today’s competitive world. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile – or if it isn’t up to date – then you’re missing out on a whole host of opportunities.

LinkedIn is now the world’s largest professional network, with over 400 million users worldwide. In the US alone, more than 122 million people have created online profiles. Almost 95% of recruiters look to LinkedIn for potential candidates. And anyone looking to hire new talent will expect to find you easily in on online search. The fact that LinkedIn is likely to be ranked first in a personal Google search should tell you that it’s time to get your profile up and updated.

What do I need for the best LinkedIn profile?

An effective LinkedIn presence can also help you get noticed in other ways, by joining professional groups and networks, by posting regular updates and by following industry trendsetters. The more active you are, the more you will get noticed – and potentially open the door to your next great opportunity.

Like your professional resume and cover letter, your LinkedIn profile needs to reflect your experience, skills and expertise in a way that maximizes your personal brand – think of it as your online resume, or to be more specific your “LinkedIn resume”. You need to show that are a great fit for all those recruiters scanning the LinkedIn pages. And you need to make sure your profile stands out, is easy to read, and – most of all – accurate.
