You would not believe the number of women I connect with who tell me “I’m struggling to land job interviews” and when I look at their LinkedIn profile my immediate thought is “well, this clearly isn’t helping you…”
And I don’t say that to be judgmental. I say that because I know it can be hard
to make your LinkedIn profile shine.
It takes time & effort.
It takes a second set of eyes to make sure you’re not short selling yourself.
It’s a process of finding where you need to be using keywords and what those should even be so you show up in searches.
And yes, it can be flatout intimidating.
There’s someone out there right now that is not as good at what you do as you are.
But they’re making more of an impact (and probably making more money!) because they are more visible.
So your profile has to not just exist, but stand out from the other people on the platform.
It needs to be found by the people that can offer you great opportunities and that will benefit from your talents (because yes, you are talented!)
Now if you’re thinking “Yes, Toni, I know I should be improving my LinkedIn profile, but I don’t even know where to start . . . ”
Then I want to invite you to my FREE Live LinkedIn Audit Webinar.
LinkedIn is how 85% of my clients get their next great opportunity – yes really! For some, it’s a completely new job, for others, an opportunity has come along that has provided them with the negotiation tools to get that pay-rise or promotion they rightly deserve.
If you want to stand out from the crowd, you don’t just need a profile that is up-to-date, you need to optimize your LinkedIn SEO (yes really).
And if that sounds scary… don’t worry, I’ve got you!
There is no better time to make sure you stand out than when the world needs great talent like you.
There is no better time to make sure you are heard than when the job market is flooded – be the one that is sought after, and you’ll always have great opportunities to go to.
