Additional Tips for Jobseekers
LinkedIn’s artificial intelligence (AI) tracks when you are on LinkedIn and what you are doing. Company recruiters can actually “see” which candidates have taken an interest in their company — not only creating Job alerts, but also by who is following their company, what content they are viewing and sharing, and the number of connections they have within the company.
The next screenshot of the IBM company page shows you where the links are found to follow a company and locate people who work there. You’ll also see a feed of the company’s recent posts.
While on the company page, another area you may want to look at is found on the About page. The next screenshot is also taken from the IBM company page.
By clicking on the About link to the left of the screen, the Overview will be revealed. If you scroll to the bottom of the page details, you will find a section labeled as Specialties (see the section encased in a red border in the screenshot).
Having the right keywords throughout your LinkedIn profile will increase your chances of being found in a Recruiter search. When possible, work a company’s Specialties keywords into your profile, resume, and/or cover letter when applying to that company.
TARGET COMPANIES LIST
Use this Target Companies List to create a list of companies you are targeting in your search and place an “X” in each column once you have completed the task. Note: Some companies (particularly smaller companies) may not have a LinkedIn page.
When you are logged in to a company page, click the relevant links to follow, create job alerts, and find profiles for people on LinkedIn who currently work at the company. Ways to engage with the company include reading (and possibly sharing) their updates.
