If there’s one thing you can do to enhance your employability, it’s making a name for yourself in your industry.
Whether you’re just starting out in your marketing career, or you’ve got years of experience, it’s never too late to push your personal brand.
LinkedIn has fast become the platform for industry leaders to share their ideas and network with like-minded individuals. It has also become the hub for recruiters to search for and talk with suitable candidates, making it the ideal online location to promote your skills.
Your personal profile on LinkedIn is essentially a CV. You can include information that demonstrates your skills, a summary of your role and your relevant experience. You can also activate a tool which allows recruiters to see that you are looking for work.
Although the old fashioned applying for a CV is still the best method (in our opinion), if you’re looking to move somewhere quickly, having another avenue available to talk to recruiters is always a bonus.
