How To Create a Great LinkedIn Profile
And Stand Out From The Crowd
Having a LinkedIn profile is almost as important as a resume when it comes to applying for a job.
LinkedIn has increasingly been used as a professional resume online, but is so much more powerful. LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional online network; it has more than 500 million members in more than 200 countries. In Australia alone, more than 9 million people have a LinkedIn profile: this is almost 75% of the working-age population.
Nearly every industry uses LinkedIn to find and vet job candidates, and over 90% of recruiters rely on the site, according to data from the Society of Human Resource Management.
