Your resume helps form an impression on recruiters when they consider your candidacy for a position. However, in today’s digital age, it is no longer enough to simply rely on your resume to help you stand out. So what is another way to stand out? Utilizing your LinkedIn profile.
“Your LinkedIn profile serves as a digital and visual representation of [your career] journey and your unique personal brand. Capturing your professional experience in one place helps you best represent yourself and tell your story. Your LinkedIn profile can be your ticket to a variety of new opportunities like partnerships, jobs, volunteering, or new business.” (Fast Company)
Fast Company offers an excellent article that discusses how to improve your LinkedIn profile to get more job interviews. Additionally, LinkedIn also offers a “Student Job Hunting Handbook Series” that elaborates on ways to use LinkedIn to kick start your career.
