I’m on LinkedIn But Feel Left Out

Just “being” on LinkedIn isn’t enough. I often see people who floundered when setting up their LinkedIn account; they didn’t know what to put so they stopped engaging on the platform. Many even have long forgotten duplicate accounts. Your online profile should be as compelling as your resume, strongly market your unique differentiators, and boost your professional credibility through knowledge sharing and impactful recommendations.

Would they describe your brand as remarkable or forgettable?

Is Your Job Search Generating Analogue Results in a Digital World?

Jobs posted on the Internet are now viewed by a global audience resulting in a massive increase in applicants per job. So, how you do stand out from the competition?
