Why Should You Update Your LinkedIn Profile With a New Job?
Even if you’re excited about your new job and don’t have any plans to leave soon, updating your profile is essential to keeping your personal brand strong. You never know when you might need your network or if there’s a job you’ll love that comes across your path.
“LinkedIn’s all about the ever-changing algorithm and this does impact your online presence,” Matthew Warzel, certified professional resume writer and former Fortune 500 recruiter, says. “By updating skills, jobs, certifications, etc., you are helping your profile stay ‘active.’ Active profiles will rank higher on recruiter searches in regular search mode, LinkedIn Navigator, and LinkedIn Recruiter.”
Even if you’re not looking for a new role (especially if you just got one you like!), adding your job to your profile can help you build your network and be visible to recruiters when the time does come for another job search.
