“The goal of an executive’s LinkedIn profile is to get the interview,” says recruiter Jeff Hyman. He’s not going to hire you off your profile. If you’ve done it well, he will contact you for an interview.
With that mindset, you need to think of your LinkedIn profile as an ad, not your resume online.
Despite its importance, the average profile gets only six seconds of attention by a recruiter! If you want more attention than that you’ve got to have what they want to see. Recruiter Jeff Hyman led a session of ExecuNet Master Class for ExecuNet VIPs on How to Headhunterize Your LinkedIn Profile. In this excerpt from the session, Jeff talks about the mindset job seekers need to have to attract recruiters’ attention with their LinkedIn profile.
