More than 97% of Recruiters use LinkedIn to search for candidates, and nearly 50% of engaged LinkedIn users have hiring decision making authority. When Recruiters receive your CV, their first port of call is your LinkedIn profile; they will then make their short list decision.
Recruiters have reported that candidates with an incomplete, badly written, or even with no profile at all will be overlooked in the search and selection process. In this digital age, even with an outstanding CV, you could fall through the cracks if you ignore your online presence.
This is why it is now more important than ever to have an active, professional profile. Because your career matters to us as much as it does to you, we will ensure that your profile is:
- As professional and as unique as you are
- Optimised to the fullest extent with the right key words
- Searchable and relevant to your industry / market sector
- A strategically thought-out, personalised, engaging online presence
- Designed to complement your CV rather than repeat it to pique the readers’ interest
- A tool to create an excellent first impression to potential recruiters
