What Does the Recruiter Want to See on Your LinkedIn Profile?

March 29th, 2017

Social networking is no longer a way to express each and every thought without any consequence. Even more so, is the importance of using each social platform differently. What you post on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter will most likely differ from what you should post on LinkedIn.

If LinkedIn is a way to connect with others for networking and searching for a job, you have to think about how a recruiter would read your profile. So, what does a recruiter want to see on a profile of a person they want to hire?

4 Things a Recruiter Wants to See on Your LinkedIn Profile

Different Information from Your Resume

Your resume is quick and concise. It almost acts as an “at-a-glance” look at your employment history. With your LinkedIn profile, you can tell more of a story. It’s by no means an autobiography, but you should go into some details of skills, accomplishments, and responsibilities. You can talk about how you worked with coworkers, and different clients or companies that you’ve worked with at each position.

You can also discuss training you have beyond higher education, volunteer and outreach efforts.

Quantifiable Data or Examples

Within your job experiences and responsibilities, it’s a good idea to give examples of your work and even quantifiable data. By what percentage did you increase sales? How many new clients did you bring to the company? This information is very intriguing to recruiters and provides some more depth to your accomplishments. They’ll want to ask you more about it in an interview.

Connection or Activity with Others

Obviously, recruiters want to see that you are connected to people. But don’t go overboard and think that the more connections you have the better that seems. Too many connections can sometimes raid a red flag that you’re just collecting connections instead of actually engaging with (or knowing) them. Similar to other social platforms, the more you engage with your connections, that will be reciprocated and your profile becomes robust with genuine connections and networking efforts.

Writing Blogs & Sharing Content

Sharing content, or producing your own blogs is definitely something that gets recruiters excited. Content should be relevant to your industry or general business and leadership. Absolutely keep it professional. When sharing other’s content, be sure to add something to it. Do you agree or disagree with the article? Do you see these trends in your local area? Don’t just reblog for the sake of reblogging.

The Best Employees All Have This

February 22nd, 2017

Enthusiastic and dedicated employees are key to a vibrant, successful company. These employees add incredible value to the company, outside of their experience and skill set.

Look Beyond Experience

It’s true, you need qualified employees who can do the jobs you hire them to do; you can’t spend all hours of the day training or educating your employees. However, you absolutely should hire a candidate who has enthusiasm, dedication, and love for their work. These qualities aren’t easily taught but a few holes in knowledge or experience can be filled in time and simple mentoring. Because they have drive, they are more likely to pay attention to detail, ensuring their work is done well and not just done.

Through Thick & Thin

When employees love their job and are enthusiastic about their work, they are able to overcome challenging times in the company. Long hours or difficult days don’t dampen their spirits. If they feel excited about their work, they won’t just “punch a clock.” Motivated employees will also lift up other employees with their energy and enthusiasm.

How to Encourage Enthusiastic Employees

There are three things you can do to help spot the employees who love their job and maybe even help your other employees increase their enthusiasm for the job.

  1. Schedule team lunches. Regularly scheduled team lunches are a great way to bring your employees together to have laid-back brainstorming or conversation. These lunches should be mandatory but without an intense agenda. Topics to can include upcoming initiatives or related to team performance. Team lunches are great for bonding in addition to increasing employee morale and enthusiasm for the success of the company.
  2. Communicate strategic initiatives while being a team player. When employees have some understanding of where the company is headed, it can help them find excitement – even in the sometimes boring day-to-day tasks. A good leader will also be a hard worker, not just at giving out action items. Your employees will feel more motivated to help you succeed when they feel you are truly a part of the team, working hard to meet goals or deadlines.
  3. Help employees create a work-life balance. As you encourage your employees to get involved in higher-level projects, it’s also important to help them avoid burnout. Be on the lookout for ways you can help support your employees, especially if they are going through a hard time. By doing this, your employees will feel appreciated which can help improve morale and productivity and also increase their enthusiasm for the company.
