LinkedIn is a powerful platform for recruiters to build connections with top talent around the world.

Follow these five key tips to optimize your presence on LinkedIn and make the most of the world’s largest professional network.

1. It all starts with your profile

Your profile is your first opportunity to build your personal brand as a recruiting leader.  Some tips:

  • Your picture is a must:   It makes your profile more human, and you more accessible.

  • Get creative with your headline:  Tell people what you stand for.  Your headline will show up in search results, so make someone want to click on it.

  • Feature recommendations:  Ask for recommendations from your team, hiring managers, and people you’ve hired.

  • Include links and downloads: Link to your company’s web site, company/career page, company blog and Twitter feed, or embed presentations and polls.

  • Give your pitch:   Your summary should show what it’s like to work at your company.  Think BRAND, not resume.
