SEO for job seekers

Headhunting on LinkedIn is no longer something that only happens to your neighbor. Headhunters and recruiters are out there looking for profiles for exiting jobs every day. Are you making yourself easy to find?

A buzzword today is Search Engine Optimizing (SEO), which practically focuses on bringing something higher up the search rankings by being relevant. Since headhunters and recruiters are searching through LinkedIn, SEO is definitely an important aspect to consider for job seekers.

You can “Search Engine optimize” your profile by defining keywords that describe your professional skills and preferences. A good question to ask yourself is “Which words would I like to be found on, in a Google search?”

After defining your keywords, make sure you repeat them throughout your profile, in order to appear relevant in searches involving these.

And then who knows, maybe you will be the next one to be contacted and landing your dream job?
