Are you making the most out of LinkedIn?

One thing that I always tell my career coaching clients is that LinkedIn is not optional in your job search. Recruiters and employers are reporting that 80% of their recruiting is conducted through LinkedIn. You can’t just post your profile and let it sit there. You have to make sure that you are actively connecting with people to fully leverage LinkedIn and your networking efforts online.

For example, I asked my career coaching client, Lisa, if she could identify a potential informational interview from her LinkedIn connections. One person she chose was a woman in one of her industry specific LinkedIn groups. Because of their mutual participation in the LinkedIn group, Lisa felt comfortable reaching out to her. The woman was kind enough to give her tips about how to strengthen her position in her job search. This is great example of how beneficial networking through LinkedIn can be.

We recently received some positive feedback about our LinkedIn Consulting. Here’s what they had to say…

“I am thankful for the guidance and clarity you [Stacy] are providing me on our career coaching journey. Your skill at your craft is quite evident in the way that you have transformed my LinkedIn page. These changes have proven quite powerful as made apparent by the number of inquiries I have received since you made the changes.” – R.S., Maryland
