You’ve recently lost your job and like any executive, you want to optimize your LinkedIn profile to connect with potential employers, executive search firms, colleagues, and other contacts who can help you in your job search. You may be wondering how to address your recent unemployment to your advantage on your LinkedIn profile.
The following strategies will make a big impact on your job search.
Social network recruiters search the LinkedIn database for candidates that have a specific set of qualifications and/or key words in their Profile.
After searching the database, recruiters get served with "search results" that include a Profile view for each candidate.
As a job seeker, you want to consistently show up in search results for candidates with your set of qualifications, ideally higher than other candidates. This is often called LinkedIn SEO, or improving your LinkedIn search rank.
