1. Put a professional looking had shot on you LinkedIn profile
2. Use your profile header on LinkedIn to make yourself standout more
Here’s the header to mine:
Recruiter. Hiring? Ask me how I’ve filled 1200+ positions & have them enjoy working with me.
You can do something to make your profile’s header more effective.
3. Finish your profile. Particularly if you are a consultant, make sure you list many of the firms you consulted to over the past five years.
4. Write a description of what you did at your former employers’ with key words and search engine optimization in mind. The idea is to get yourself found.
5. Add to your connections
