LinkedIn Gold – The Golden Touch of Ivy League Resumes!
What is LinkedIn and Why is it Important?
www.LinkedIn.com is the greatest free professional networking tool ever created. It is an integral aspect of the job application process and career journey which generates significant value-added benefits. Your LinkedIn profile is an essential ingredient in representing your brand publically and professionally, in conjunction with your resume, cover letter, and networking bio. When applying for a position, you become a product, and a product is valued based on its promotion and branding. LinkedIn is your online resume, promotional branding, and agent representative that generates professional engagement and drives profitability when utilized correctly. For the job search, LinkedIn is by far the most important tool to passively engage hiring managers, recruiters, and new job postings. Your LinkedIn profile performs as an independent, passive search mechanism that pulls opportunities that would be otherwise unavailable.
LinkedIn is the #1 site for new job searches because 87%+ of recruiters use LinkedIn to source new candidates for jobs and 94%+ of recruiters utilize LinkedIn to vet job candidates (Jobscan, 2019). Your LinkedIn profile is analyzed by the ATS prior to accepting the resume to ensure alignment with job description/keywords; therefore, it is vital to maintain a properly updated LinkedIn profile for sourcing new positions. LinkedIn offers job recommendations and adjusts your search and shared content based on information listed on your profile. A complete and optimized LinkedIn profile creates a multifaceted approach towards the job search and generates more opportunities with less effort.

What is the Process?
The content will be initially developed offline which is a comprehensive process; you will receive the 1st draft document for review and feedback; based on your feedback, all necessary updates will be applied to ensure 100% accuracy; a temporary password is then required, where I go into your profile and make everything completely private for security and privacy reasons so no updates or profile access are available; all of the on-page optimization is then completed from start-to-finish; you are immediately contacted upon completion for the final review; once your confirmation is received that everything is ready to go-live; your profile is then made public, all of your skills endorsed, and your profile connected with the top groups to maximize networking capabilities.
Why Leverage LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is the Professional’s Networking site and your image matters. Professionally branding your image is critical for boosting your career development and advancement. Perception is reality and you need to control the information that people see about you. We will enhance the best details of your professional history and minimize the unnecessary clutter that can be preventing your success.
What is the timeline?
The engagement takes 1 week to complete when done independently of the resume and cover letter, and approximately 2-3 days when combined with the resume engagement. It is a comprehensive process rather than a copy and paste that other providers offer and everything is customized specifically for you with no two profiles are the same, unlike other providers.
