Candidates with a solid track record and a good LinkedIn brand are more likely to find a job faster than those who do not.
To be clear, one without the other is a big negative when you are trying to stand out to recruiters and search firm consultants.
If you have not started to construct a digital brand, do not despair. It is never too late. In fact, taking the initial steps it is not that complicated. So, stop delaying and get busy. If you do it right it will pay dividends.
Here are four points for you to understand:
Coach’s Note: Your vision may change over time just as a corporate strategy will change. Businesses evolve. So do professional goals and brands.
Coach’s Note: One-hundred words equals about a minute. Your statement can and probably will be longer, but like a politician’s stump speech, you will rarely use it all at one time. You will use bits and pieces to answer questions or to introduce yourself to different groups. Executives who understand their VBS typically do a better job interviewing. They are more focused.
Coach’s Note: Never engage in snarky debate or post political commentary on LinkedIn. We are a divided nation. Do not alienate half the population. The person who may offer you your dream job may have an opposite political view.
Coach’s Note: We all have strongly held beliefs. But we do not all agree. Keep that in mind. Save your political convictions for your personal Facebook page. Think of LinkedIn as a platform for your best self, your better ideas.
