Two Actions You Must Take to Match Your Resume to Your LinkedIn Profile

E. Forrest Christian Careers Leave a Comment

Chicagobusiness, a Crain’s thing online, asked the question Is LinkedIn more accurate than a resume? Employers can get better information from checking a prospective employee’s LinkedIn profile because of the extended network of people.

This means two things:

  1. Ensure that your resume/CV matches the experience and the goals you listed LinkedIn profile.
  2. Start using LinkedIn to find a job more than the traditional resume route.

Although I have to ask: who uses paper resumes any more?
