Please check out this fantastic article by Military Hire with our president, Matt Warzel, as a contributor – Getting Maximum Traction From Your LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn is an excellent, but sometimes overlooked, resource for military veterans looking for civilian jobs.

It has become a go-to source of information and connections with potential candidates used by recruiters, HR professionals, hiring managers—and job candidates.

I was fortunate enough to be featured by the fine folks over at MilitaryHire for their latest article, “Getting Maximum Traction From Your LinkedIn Profile.”

My take?

I suggest some ways to get insights into the kinds of words and phrases that might best represent your skills—and what recruiters are looking for.

For instance, looking at LinkedIn endorsements on profiles of people in the industry or roles that you’re interested in—or job descriptions directly posted by companies you’re interested in. “These buzzwords can be utilized for your LinkedIn profile,” I said.

In addition, I also recommended focusing not just on achievements and accomplishments—but on value.

What can you bring to a new role? I said, “a teacher trying to transfer into corporate/marketing may be able to discuss training, performance reviews, and documentation handling.”

Keep the focus on practical impacts that you could make based on past experiences. Build these into “nice little quick narratives whether shown through a project or success story,” I recommended.
