What You Need to Know About Your Résumé and LinkedIn

The résumé was thought to be on its way out with the rise of LinkedIn, but alas, the résumé is alive and well – and very much expected. The system of applying to a job still requires it and it needs to be written for the audience in charge of getting you seen by an actual human being. “They need to be better than ever before,” says ExecuNet Career Strategist Saundra Botts.

LinkedIn is often a key player in how you will get found, especially at the lower levels. “It’s the world’s directory to find professionals. It’s not Facebook and it’s not Snap Chat. My connections are filled with people who understand my subject matter expertise,” says Botts.

Listen to Saundra talk with ExecuNet Master Class host Tony Vlahos about this topic in greater detail in this excerpt from a session of ExecuNet Master Class.
