If you read the business papers, you know it’s important to have an online resume on LinkedIn.com. In fact, LinkedIn’s stock hit $83 a share during its Initial Public Offering in May. In addition, a survey conducted by bizjournals.com found that 59% of social media users believe it’s more important to have a LinkedIn profile than an account on Facebook or any other social media site. Business people and human resources managers alike will tell you that when they check out a job candidate, they look at LinkedIn.
So how do you get your virtual self ahead of the competition?
With the help of The Resume Place, of course. The Resume Place will:
All of this for a very reasonable price. LinkedIn Profiles, built with the know-how and successful track record that you’ll only find from The Resume Place.
The Resume Place will turn its years of experience in resume-writing skills to writing your LinkedIn profile. This will be written fresh, not a repeat of your private sector or federal government resume. This is because Recruiters, Hiring Managers and Human Resource Directors are looking at your profile, even after they’ve spotted your resume. If you don’t tell them something new, it’s a lost opportunity. The Resume Place LinkedIn profile will highlight accomplishments that didn’t go into your private sector resume.
The LinkedIn profile will also use professional keywords to help your profile turn up in searches. The LinkedIn profile only helps you out if you can get people to see it. The Resume Place pioneered the use of keywords in resumes long before internet searches even existed. We’ll turn this expertise to your profile, making sure it’s filled with all of the current terms that recruiters and hiring managers are looking for.
The great part about this service is it won’t be over, just because the profile is ready. If you want LinkedIn to help you find a job, you need to make it work for you. The Resume Place will email you a two-page printout, giving you easy-to-follow instructions on how to keep your LinkedIn profile current, how to make connections, and how to impress employers once they spot you. Any Executive or Human Resources Manager is looking for employees who are active, on-the-move, and ready to make a difference.
Since LinkedIn tracks all of your activity, it’s your big chance to actually show what you’re doing, instead of just talking about it.
