Job Seeking Guidance



Make sure you have a LinkedIn profile and that your work experience information matches your CV.  Upload a recent photo of yourself to your account. Recruiters respond more positively to profiles that have a photo. In Ireland most recruiters check your LinkedIn profile once they receive your CV.

The LinkedIn platform is primarily used for professional networking and career development and allows job seekers to post their CVs and employers to post jobs. LinkedIn allows members (both workers and employers) to create profiles and "connect" with each other in an online social network which may represent real-world professional relationships. 

With the “Open to Work” feature, you can privately tell recruiters or publicly share with the LinkedIn community that you are looking for new job opportunities.
