There are 55 million companies on LinkedIn and at least 14 million jobs posted on the platform. Beyond that, almost half of all recruiters use the platform regularly. When it comes to job search, LinkedIn is the most effective place to network, apply, and lands jobs if done correctly.
LinkedIn can be so powerful, because you have roles you can apply to directly. You can save roles so you can get to them easily, and you can use LinkedIn's powerful search capabilities to find people. If you're not sure what you want from your next role, you can use LinkedIn to find jobs you already have the skills for! - Elissa Shuck, LYWL EP.21
In this episode, I highlight the benefits of LinkedIn, the importance of finding hiring managers through job postings, exactly what to say to hiring managers when reaching out, how to set up your profile correctly so you can stand out, and how to find jobs you're perfect for, but didn't know existed.
