We often meet women thinking about changing their jobs while not ready to make the actual steps. Others are very ready for the change, but they don’t’ want to be seen as actively looking for a new job. What is common in these two types of job seekers is that if they have their LinkedIn profile neatly updated, they’ve done the first and very important step to connect with potential employers and recruiters.
How your LinkedIn profile should look?
Whether you are actively seeking a job opportunity or just considering a change, getting your LinkedIn in order is equally beneficial. Make sure you have a profile photo, and your previous work and education experience reflect the type of job you are looking for. We rely on our network, our database of Hong Kong professionals and LinkedIn to help us fill the job openings we work on. Often clients will go see your LinkedIn profile to get a second insight in to who the candidates are.
