Are you one of those executives who quickly put up a bare-bones LinkedIn profile a while ago and then forgot about it? You keep meaning to go back and fill in all the information, but you never seem to get to it.
And, because you don’t have a complete profile, you figure it doesn’t make sense to actually use any of the many features LinkedIn offers. You may not even know what LinkedIn can do for you.
Whether you’re in a job search, or could be in the near future, or want to increase your online visibility to hiring authorities who routinely search sites like LinkedIn for top talent, it’s time to get moving on LinkedIn.
Aside from job search, LinkedIn is one of the best places to reconnect with your network and build on it with new people.
LinkedIn offers so many benefits, even if you’re in a confidential search, that it just makes sense to take advantage of it.
