If you are conducting a job search right now, it’s important to have a well optimized LinkedIn profile. However, it can be difficult to know what to include and what to leave off.

One of the biggest mistakes job seekers make with their LinkedIn profile is not providing enough of the “right” information. Many times job seekers fill their profiles with content and information that is not benefiting them in any way. In fact, if you include the “wrong” information you’ll hurt your chances at impressing hiring managers and growing your network.

What’s difference between “right” and “wrong” information?

Let’s discuss exactly what you should and shouldn’t include on your LinkedIn profile.

Here’s what’s going on in the news (related to careers of course):

In the video above, J.T. explains why your resume is probably not being read by recruiters and how our resume template solves for these problems.

Your resume is most likely being overlooked or tossed out if you are making yourself out to be the “jack and jill of all trades”. If you are listing out everything you’ve ever done in your entire life on your resume, you risk the chance of overselling yourself. While you might think it looks impressive, recruiters and hiring managers will not. Instead they will get suspicious and think you are too good to be true.

Additionally, if your resume is full of too much information, it will be impossible to understand. Recruiters and hiring managers won’t be able to pull out key info and skills from your resume. The will get overwhelmed trying to figure out if you have what they are looking for.

To solve for these two issues, we created a resume template that is simple, clear, and easy for recruiters to read. Our resume technique will make you look impressive without completely overwhelming the person reading it. The only way to access this template is through our FREE Resume & LinkedIn Bootcamp.
