Put a Resume on Your LinkedIn Profile Page

Most people think their LinkedIn profile is enough to be found online. I want you to take that tool a touch further by putting a PDF of your keyword rich profile as a resume there, too?

Why is that helpful?

Easy. It is downloadable.

It can be imported into an applicant tracking system so that you can be “found” again in the future whena new position materializes.

After all, the person who gets ahead isn’t always the smartest or work the hardest . . . although those are great qualities to have. people get ahead by remaining alert to opportunity whether they are internal or external to their firm.

Hence, placing a resume on your profile allows someone to easily import it into their data base for you to be found in the future, complete with phone number and email address.

To find a resume feature on LinkedIn, go to www.LinkedInLabs.com so that someone who is looking for someone with your experience can search for a particular skills and find you, download your resume and import it into their system.

Another thing that is worth doing is putting your resume on a web site or webpage so it can also be found by recruiters who search beyond job boards looking for free resumes

SnapPages.com offers a free site plus a free resume builder so that recruiters who use Google or one of the metasearch tools can find your resume and contact you.

And isn’t it important to put yourself in a position to be found?
