Here are few tips to craft an outstanding profile that would get the conversion rates rolling for you!
An attention grabbing headline
Well to start with, headlines in general provoke reactions, even a subconscious one. How you present yourself starts with your first words. So, the idea is to write a single sentence headline about yourself that is so captivating or creative that it breaks through the clutter and gets read. So, how do you write a one sentence headline and make every word count? Well, the perfect sentence should have a correlation to the job you are applying for, a skill you have established before and how you would use that skill for them.
Strong Keywords/ Buzzwords
It’s a known fact that recruiters and databases search for profiles using keywords. And there is a huge chance that yours won’t be included in the search results if it’s not embedded with the right keywords that suit your needs. So, select and use the right buzzwords to grab attention. Example, if you are into content writing then selecting keywords like edit, CMS should be perfect or if you are into IT then keywords like SAP, C++, and Oracle should be used and could be instant eye catchers. Basically, the idea is to weave in the right functional skills, designation, relevant qualifications and number of years of experience which are all strong keywords.
Completing your Profile is worth it
Most jobseekers complete only 40% of their profile the first time they log in as they are in a rush to complete it. But it is highly recommended that you invest time and complete your profile 100% at the earliest possible. Your online profile is where employers read about your education, certifications, skill sets, and the brands that you’re associated with and how many people have liked your work. And all this information definitely matters to people who are thinking of getting you on board.
