In January, I found myself on the job market for the first time in 10 years. What’s changed? Everything! One must-have now is LinkedIn. Recruiters are increasingly using LinkedIn to identify and research job candidates before they contact you. Is your profile ready?

  • Do you have a profile picture?April's LinkedIn profile
  • Have you written a compelling summary? (The old “Objective” doesn’t cut it any more.)
  • Are you connected with colleagues, former coworkers and others in your industry?
  • Do you have recommendations and skill endorsements?
  • Are your privacy controls set so recruiters can find you?

Need help setting up your profile, and learning to navigate LinkedIn? I’m offering a special job seeker package to professionals in Frederick, Maryland and surrounding areas.

Here’s how I can help you:

  1. Proofread your 1-2 page resume for marketing appeal (including editing your summary), and make recommendations for spelling, grammar and formatting
  2. Meet with you  for 1 hour to configure your LinkedIn profile, and show you how to use key functions to advance your job search
Contact me to learn more, and get started down the road to a better job!
