    Over 90% of recruiters use LinkedInon a daily basis to hunt for talent. The majority of them also check the other social media channels that potential candidates use and actively perform the so-called ‘Google check’ as a standard step in the recruitment process. Sometimes they don’t like what they see and it can cause them to reconsider a candidate for the position. 

    It goes without saying that creating a professional online brand is key when navigating the job market, and a good amount of social media savviness won’t hurt either.

    Furthermore, LinkedIn is not only an excellent accelerator for your job hunt, it is also an efficient tool to build, visualize and activate your professional network (and their network). And, remember, there is no time like the present to start growing your network. That way you will have the right connections by the time you want to shift gears and make a move on the job market. 

    Do you want to find out more about LinkedIn and work on your social media awareness?
