Why You Should Keep Your LinkedIn Profile Updated | Staffing Agency South Florida

As a staffing agency in South Florida, one of the best tools we use to find candidates a job is LinkedIn. We strongly encourage everyone, even if you’re not looking for a ho at the moment, to keep your LinkedIn profile updated. It has never been more important to build and maintain a stellar LinkedIn profile.  Be sure to update your profile whenever you switch jobs, change roles, get a promotion, etc. This makes it easy for HR recruiters and staffing agencies to easily find you, and quickly scan through your resume so you don’t lose out to the next candidate who has a great profile written up about themselves. LinkedIn is your place to brag about your work accomplishments! Add any tools, languages, skills, or certifications you have to your profile. If you need help, here are some tips and tricks to updating your profile. Also, reach out to people in your network and ask them for recommendations. Your friends online can vouch for your hard work, and can say you have strong skills in one area or another. In addition, it’s important to have a good LinkedIn profile photo. We highly recommend having your picture taken by a professional, trust us - this makes all the difference. Seeing you in a suit in front of a good background is much more appealing than a selfie you took on your iPhone. When uploading the your photo ensure you name it yourname.jpg - this will ensure it returns on the first page of Google and also in Google image searches when your name is entered. If you want to update your LinkedIn photo but don’t want to alarm your boss, turn your settings on LinkedIn Recruiter to show HR recruiters and staffing agencies that you are looking for a new role. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us today at 561.512.8989.
