because a recruiter only spends 6 seconds per profile,
In order to select 15 applicants
using 7 keywords.
Firstly: BE PRESENT
Marks tailors his profile to fit the position he is targeting.
He writes his profile both in French and in English, and expands his lexical field – he uses both CFO and Finance Director
In the experience section, Mark fills in all the information that the recruiters expect, starting with a jargon-free job title,
the size of the team he manages,
And the exhaustive list of the countries he covers.
In the summary section, Mark presents his value proposition and highlights his specific skills.
To ease contacts with recruiters, he displays his e-mail address in his summary.
Then he writes a headline below his name.
He publishes and comments articles to increase his visibility.
Mark targets 1,000 LinkedIn contacts, so he joins groups,
and extends his network as a result.
Finally, BE PROACTIVE
To get in touch with the right point of contact in his target company, he reaches out directly
Using the search function, he combines the right key words.
So follow Mark’s example: optimize the way you use LINKEDIN and increase your visibility!
At each stage, be present, be precise and be pro-active.
