According to news sources, about 92% of companies claim that they have hired through LinkedIn, so how you present yourself in the digital space matters a whole lot more than you may have thought.
As publicists working for a Los Angeles Public Relations Agency, we know that it helps to maintain your manners on social media. But what you post and how you interact with your friends online can also allow recruiters to peer deeply into your personal life, helping them decide whether or not you’re a good professional fit for their company.
For example, recruiters have been found to react negatively to a candidate who posts profanities or posts of a sexual nature. Have you managed to avoid these negative sentiments online? Now push the positive ones.
An important thing to do is to push your LinkedIn to the top of the search results in order to showcase your professional skills and experience. If you don’t have a full profile on that social network you may already be behind those competing for the same job. So get to it!
