Recruiters often head to LinkedIn to find candidates. A great way to help Recruiters is to showcase your work there for them. You can do this by adding some Apps to your profile.
There are many but our top 7 are:
Slideshare: Upload and share your presentations online. Lots of formats are supported including: ppt, pps, pptx, odp, pdf, doc, docx, odt, Keynote, iWork. You can also embed YouTube videos in presentations and add audio to make a webinar. Slideshare is available on LinkedIn and Facebook and you can Syc these accounts.
Box.Net: You can manage and share files on your Profie using Box.Net. It's great for keeping your CV on it if you are a jobseeker or perhaps a job specification or even perhaps a company overview if you're looking for investors.
GitHub Social Coding: This is a great one for technical people. Showcase your GitHub projects on LinkedIn and allow your code to be a vital part of your professional identity. You are also able to see projects your LinkedIn Connections are working on.
Portfolio Display: This is powered by Behance and is aimed at showcasing visual work. Very useful for jobseekers and freelancers !
Google Presentations: Present yourself and your work. Upload a .ppt or use Google's online application to embed a presentation on your profile. Add a presentation to:
- Showcase a recent talk or presentation.
- Display a visual portfolio of your professional achievements.
- Introduce yourself to recruiters and professional contacts viewing your profile.
WordPress: Link your WordPress blog with LinkedIn and it will automatically send updates to your network. You can filter your posts with a special LinkedIn tag. We do not recommend that you add all these to your LinkedIn profile but perhaps add a couple to help differentiate yourself and your profile in a positive way.
