LinkedIn has over 775 million users, and almost a quarter of them are in the United States. And while not everyone who has an account uses it, of course, almost 1 in 3 US adults say they use the platform. At any given time, there are 14 million posted jobs and 100 million job applications are sent thorugh LinkedIn EACH MONTH. 87% of recruiters say they used LinkedIn. In fact, a study found that 122 million people received an interview through LinkedIn and 35 million people have been hired by a person they connected with on the site. 3 people are hired through LinkedIn EVERY MINUTE. With all this activity and attention, you may be wondering if YOUR profile is positioning YOU for being found and making connections for the right opportunity. We’ll talk about 5 things that every solid profile should have, and 5 actions you should take to make sure you’re seen!
