So I just got my first web developer job (junior full-stack role) and start this Thursday. One thing I did during my job search was majorly overhaul my LinkedIn. Actually, I saw this post from FCC’s LinkedIn: https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/how-to-build-an-amazing-linkedin-profile-15-proven-tips/
Highly recommend it in case you missed it. While not an impressive number, after overhauling my profile, my profile views have been at least double what they were before in a given week over the last 6 weeks.
It’s basic SEO and just filling your profile with keywords so that you’ll show up for the searches you want to show up for. Now, I didn’t get my job via LinkedIn, as far as I know, but it will be interesting Thursday to ask our office manager/recruiter what she looked at before deciding to give me an opportunity to interview.
It was probably just my resume! But either way, I felt (still do) way more confident in my LinkedIn and sending it out or listing it on job ads.
