    I appreciate this thread. LinkedIn has been monumental for my career - I know I would not be where I am at without it.

    I think what you are saying works amazingly in attracting recruiters to take a look at your profile.I think it works a lot better when you have good job stability, work at a company and have a desirable/needed job responsibility.

    If you are struggling to get recruiters to hit you up - be proactive. Especially for sales, show that you can do your research and add value. Find the person you think is hiring for any online listings you have, reach out introduce yourself and sell your value to the company. Just being proactive and taking that extra step can help you stand out.

    I was just planning to work on my profile this weekend. Hopefully I'll be adding a new certification to it but I've really never taken the time to fill it out very thoroughly. Do recruiters actually pay attention to what people have endorsed you for?

    I never realized how few skills I'd added on my profile. Just went through and updated that, along with turning my profile on to where recruiters can see it.

    Yes but it is not going to hold the same weight as previous roles. Having your previous roles spelled out with a thorough but concise description is going to be the first priority, but you absolutely want to have the supporting factors like that if you can.

    No they won't think anything of it, Linkedin isn't a tool for job searching, but for networking - this includes existing jobs. Make your Linkedin and put work into fleshing it out, then once it's ready start adding people you have worked with previously, along with employees at your current job too.

    Once you have everything set up you can also enable to feature that shows you are looking for a job. All this does is tag your profile to show up for recruiters when they are browsing candidates for positions. It won't actually show on your page and it doesn't show up for your current employer either, so you don't have to worry.

    LinkedIn is flooded with fake profiles (see all the models and airline stewardesses in their bikinis) and Indians.

    Ive used it for job postings and my inbox was spammed with applications from India from people who have no experience related to the industry, let alone the job description.

    And good luck revealing all your hyped jobs and responsibilities online. Scammers love you!

    It sounds like you don't know what you are doing. If you want a job in a respectable company, esp a fortune 500, you almost have to have a Linkedin. Everyone who is not a potato has one and uses one to network internally and externally.

    This is why we can't have nice things. Made the mistake of sharing my startup on here one time when i had it several years ago, instantly got 1 star Google review. There are petty phaggots on here that will go out of their way to try to fuk you, better to be safe than sorry.

    It's surprising to still see how few folks understand the value of Linkedin. When I had less experience I landed interviews at desirable companies that I would not have been able to get in the door otherwise. I work in a relatively narrow industry that is difficult to get into without specialized experience...that I didn't have. I reached out to recruiters and folks that looked like they worked in departments I was applying to. That got me in the door. I'm a big believer in Linkedin as a tool for career growth. There is no way I would be in my current position without it.

    Just had a recruiter reach out to me about a new job on LinkedIn. Would add 50-100k/yr but going to pass. Happy in low cost of living area now (Dallas) and would have to relocate to Seattle (major competitor of current company). Will always have it as an option later as they frequently hire from where I work, so I'n not sweating it.



    Keep that LinkedIn active, boyos.
