LinkedIn Job Search / 6 Mistakes You Should Never Make

A survey of hiring managers by Bullhorn Reach says 97.3% of those surveyed used LinkedIn as a recruiting tool in 2012.

Having a profile is a great first step, but if you’re like many professionals, you could probably leverage LinkedIn better to help you reach your career and job search goals.

Take a close look at your profile and how you use the network and make sure you aren’t making these mistakes on LinkedIn.

1. Your profile isn’t 100% complete.

2. Your profile lacks compelling details and keywords.

3. You never modify your profile.

4. You haven’t customized your LinkedIn URL.

5. You never post updates.

6. You’re not following companies.
