It’s even more important to have a Killer LinkedIn profile if you are looking to use linkedin or linkedin experts to help you find a new job or contractual work. Why? Because many prospective clients scrutinise your LinkedIn profile as the first step in their hiring due diligence. Talent linkedin has become the new ‘Hunting Ground’ for recruitment, talent spotting agencies and professional head hunters.

Linkedin reports that your potential employers, clients & customers will all be scrutinizing your profile, so you really need to create a ‘Killer Profile’ to make a fantastic impression.

The age-old phrase of ‘It’s not what you know, but who you know’ died out as the digital online revolution buried the Industrial revolution. In today’s busy business world, the buzz phrase is: who knows you, and can you be found?
