Tomorrow, I am going to the WordPress and Social Media Meet-Up in Denver, lead by Mike O’Neil and Lori Ruff. They are LinkedIn experts, from whom I’ve learned a lot. They also mix in a lot of fun classic rock-and-roll, hence the title of their new book on LinkedIn profiles.
There is no question that social media in its various forms is transforming the way we communicate about many things, including jobs. In March, Facebook surpassed Google as the most visited site in the US.
If you are a job seeker, trust me, you need to make sure your LinkedIn profile is polished and public. It is not hard to imagine that profiles like these might someday replace resumes all together. Even if you are not an active job seeker, I still recommend listing “career opportunities” as one of the things you are open to receiving messages about. A great one might come your way as a result.
