LinkedIn 10 Tick Test

The way recruiters use LinkedIn is always evolving and we are constantly changing the way we write LinkedIn profiles accordingly. We ensure every profile is effective, engaging and optimised – is yours?

Take a quick analysis of your LinkedIn profile and see if it passes the 10 Tick Test;

  1. Have you undertaken keyword research?
  2. Is every section of your LinkedIn profile optimised for search?
  3. Does your profile complement your new CV without repeating it?
  4. Is your profile 100% complete?
  5. Does your profile have a professional photo?
  6. Is your headline attention grabbing? Does it market you?
  7. Does your 2000-character summary provide a perfect snapshot of you, your career and your value?
  8. Does your personality shine through your profile?
  9. Are the right people looking at your profile and seeking to connect with you?
  10. Are the LinkedIn algorithms connecting you to the right jobs?

Every recruiter worth their salt (and most hirers) will go to your LinkedIn the moment you call them or send through your CV. They will also find you through keywords and your connections when searching to fill a role.  So, it’s worth keeping in mind that even with an outstanding CV, you could fall through the cracks if you ignore your online presence.

If you need help writing your LinkedIn profile we are happy to honour our package price of £150 (0-9 years) |£199 (10+ years) |£250 (Executive) if you order within the next 10 days (whilst you are still foremost in our minds).

If you wish to add a stand-out LinkedIn profile to enhance your job search, or indeed some tailored interview training simply contact us or give us a call on +44 20 7100 6656.

Reviews

It was less than a month from completing the CV and LinkedIn profile to getting a role. And the bank found me via LinkedIn. No agent this time, direct to bank. I can’t thank you enough!

Geoff ... Business Analyst and Project Manager

I’m extremely pleased with the service you guys provided and I’m absolutely stoked about looking for my next contract. Thank you so much for the thought and effort you put into my CV and LinkedIn profile, I think you’ve done a wonderful job and it’s been a pleasure working with you. I’ll be recommending your service to my friends and colleagues

Steve

Thanks a lot, this looks amazing! I am really happy with the work you have done so I am ready to update my new profile.

Marco B ... Financial Lawyer

Since uploading my new LinkedIn profile, I hit the top 1% in profile views day before yesterday, #10 out of 1021 contacts and achieved ‘expert’ level status. Number of followers at time of writing has grown to 1071. Contacts have all been targeted and I am using some of the proper recruitment strategies. Couldn’t have done it without you, so a big thanks to the team at City CV.

Chris ... Wireline Professional

Thank you, Victoria, for the clear and brisk trot around LinkedIn’s course. Online profile and awareness raising, so crucial a part of building credibility, is a minefield when skills lie elsewhere.

Madeleine ... Communications Management

Overall, my experience with City CV has been exemplary. I enlisted their help to improve my LinkedIn profile which I didn't feel was working as hard as it might. It's always hard to know who to trust when it comes to business services as there are so many companies all promising the same thing. I was really impressed by City CV's reviews so gave them a call and instantly knew they were the right people for the job. Professional from start to finish, the team delivered exactly what they said they would, on time and to a very high standard. My profile is now one to be proud of; it not only encapsulates my career highlights, it is also keyword optimised, engaging and unique.

I've witnessed firsthand the power of a professional LinkedIn profile as I've gone from a handful of hits to hundreds of views overnight and am forging productive new business relationships daily. My new found visibility on LinkedIn is all down to Victoria and her team and I can't thank them enough.

E.B. ... Nutritionist/Entrepreneur

Thanks a lot for sending across the LinkedIn profile. I am indeed very pleased with the result.

A.H. ... Banking Director

C.W.

Thanks for a rapid turn around and beautifully written CV.

I have just been offered the internal role I have applied for. Knowing my CV and Linkedin profile was updated made me feel I was well prepared and this also contributed to my being able to focus on other preparation requirements for interview.

Thanks again City CV for a great result.

C.W. ... Snr Client Acct Manager, Property Investment Specialists

I am truly astonished by this piece of work. Even I would now want to talk to me based on this. You have done an amazing job for me. I can’t wait to see the LinkedIn after this has floored me.

Marc ... IT Project Manager

Many thanks to you both and the rest of the team for your work on my LinkedIn profile.
I am very happy and I would have no hesitation in recommending you going forward. The process was as straightforward, useful and easy as promised.

N McB ... Commercial Director

I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to my new CV and profile, I got two offers in the same week and now I am working for Xxxxx. Thank you for your big support!

Luca ... Tech Sales

I really appreciate the effort you put into both my CV and Linked In profile, and the quality of the output. Thank you once again for all your help, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

A.C. ... Transformation Programme Director

It was less than a month from completing the CV and LinkedIn profile to getting a role. And the bank found me via LinkedIn. I can’t thank you enough!

Geoff ... Business Analyst and Project Manager

Everyone kept telling me how important a good LinkedIn profile was and I really didn’t believe it until City CV worked on my new one. I’m amazed by my own achievements and apparently so are other people judging by the views I’ve had.

Natasha Royce ... Retail

Thank you for your work. I’ve uploaded your work into my LinkedIn profile and within hours I have been contacted by recruiters, it works

Jamie ... Senior Project Manager

I just want to thank you all, especially Libby, for working on my CV/LinkedIn page. I am very pleased with the result and really glad it’s done. Libby was excellent and captured my CV brilliantly.

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I have been offered the role at the law firm that I was interviewing for. I have no doubt that I would not have got this role without the help of City CV – writing my CV, writing my LinkedIn profile and the interview coaching. Without these things I would have been in the same position as before – getting nowhere. I have already thanked Nick, the interview coach and Rachel for writing my CV and LinkedIn profile. And thank you City CV – money well spent!

T.A. ... Senior Litigation Lawyer

I thought my existing LinkedIn profile was fine but, since Libby has rewritten it, I’ve had more views than I ever did with my old one, as well as two people approaching me with potential jobs.

Nick ... Business Analyst

It has been fabulous working with you on my CV and LI profile. The end result looks terrific and is a significant improvement on my own version crafted many years ago.

Alan ... COO and CFO

Invaluable help and support with CV, LinkedIn profile and interview coaching! Highly recommend- money well spent!

D.M.

I cannot believe the transformation you have done on the CV, exceeded all my expectations. I will highly recommend the services of City CV to anyone I hear looking to do something with their CV and LinkedIn profile.

Clive ... Senior Project Manager

I would like to thank you for your kind support and efforts in assisting me with my CV and LinkedIn Profile. I am extremely pleased with the result and look forward to keeping you appraised of my progress.

R.I. ... Investment Manager

Thanks to City CV’s help, I secured a role as Head of HR Transformation, Operations and Technology at a major bank. I loved working with you and the team but in particular Lauren on my CV and LinkedIn profile.

K.M.

When I needed a new, dynamic LinkedIn profile for a job I was applying for, City CV really came up with the goods. I was sceptical at first about what difference it would make but my new boss told me how impressed they were by it. Excellent work!

Nicola ... Solicitor

Thank you very much, the LinkedIn profile looks great and I’m really pleased with the results. I’ve connected with you on LinkedIn so you can see how I’ve uploaded the materials. I will be back in touch for interview coaching probably sooner rather than later and thank you again for your hard work!

Naresh ... Management Consultant

Just thought you'd like to see my profile views since I went live with the profile you created.

+450% since last week

Impressive.

T.A. ... IT

Love the profile. Have updated LinkedIn. Thanks so much!

Kate ... Investment Banking

Thanks for assigning such a great team member to work with me, my CV and then with my LinkedIn profile. He has great interpersonal skills, adapts well, is fast and does give one the feeling being in ‘good hands’. He must be one of the best in your team! I thank you very much for staying in touch and for coordinating the effort to get me a professional CV and I think a good LinkedIn profile.

Martin ... Senior Executive

It's one of the first times I haven't procrastinated on spending/investing in this kind of support and it's so far given me a great boost to read my history with greater clarity than I could have ever written myself, so you lot, in my book are stars for just that!

S.H. ... Head of Human Resources

I’ve greatly appreciated your services on many levels. Not only have you helped with preparing the CV and LinkedIn profile, but your structured approach and conversations have ensured that I start the job search and interview process with the right approach and mindset.

Naser ... Portfolio Manager
