How do I find a job on LinkedIn?
Are you looking for a job?
Well, Everyone wants to have a good job, a good salary, and a comfortable life.
People actively looking for a job and search on Google.
Here you can see in Google search there are millions of searches on just one single keyword.
The thing is not that you have a job or you’re working.
The thing is that, are you in the right job?
I saw many people who don’t have any interest in their jobs still they are working just because of money.
Money is necessary for survival and for living a good life but making sure to fulfill your requirements and your interests is the key to happiness.
If you’re already happy with what you’re doing then you’re doing the right job. No matter if you’re earning tons of money or have just a little.
If you’re not happy with your work then you need to think about it and you should think about something different.
Interest is not by birth, interest develops when you start work on something.
Let’s take an example, Suppose you’re a social media marketer.
You have a number of tasks in your organization and you used to perform these tasks on a daily basis.
If you have a good social presence and you help people on social media to solve their issues, either free or paid it’s up to you then you’re definitely doing the right thing because it makes you feel happy to be a social media marketer.
Revert the case and suppose you’re just selling things on social media and you don’t care about what people actually looking for then you must need to think about changing your interests and need to figure out what, are doing right.
When I was in college, I was confused about my career and all these things.
I just wanted to be extraordinary and for that, I used to study day and night but the thing is that I don’t have that must interest in remembering the facts and figures.
I was preparing for the competitive examinations but all the time I was not getting a good rank and wasn’t able to stand out from the crowd.
Before searching for a job, you always need to make sure that you have mastered a skill that is extremely important.
People want jobs but they don’t have any skills or experience.
They’re randomly searching for a job and expecting they’ll get a high-paid job.
That’s not the right way to land a high-profile job or a high-paid job in a good company.
You need to make sure you have skills that match your interests.
First of all, search for the right thing that better suits you. Nobody is perfect in this world.
While mastering the skill make sure you must need to have expert knowledge in that field.
You need to be aware of all the figures and facts about the industry.

If you’re looking for the right job for your talent then there is nothing other than LinkedIn.
I already covered a lot of things about the platform.
Here, I’m gonna teach you what should you do to become easily found on Linkedin.
Make sure about these points while creating an account:
1. Your headline is everything:
If you want to stand out from the crowd and look for the best job then it’s a must-have thing you should keep in mind.
It’s not Instagram or Facebook so make sure while writing the headline on LinkedIn.
Whether you have a single skill or you have multiple skills, don’t forget to mention each and every detail on your LinkedIn headline.
The LinkedIn headline is the thing that will come into the search results.
When someone searches for the same profile then your skill is everything that comes into the results.
Let’s understand it by taking an example, suppose you’re a Digital Marketer and you have throughout knowledge about all the figures and facts about Digital Marketing.
If you have knowledge about search engine optimization, social media optimization, search engine marketing, social media marketing, email marketing, mobile marketing, online reputation management, content marketing, etc. then you must need to mention it in short in your headline.
If you have multiple skills then you can also consider showing the most expert skill on your headline or currently active skills instead of showing all the skills.
If you already working for some organization then you need to consider that organization in your headline.
On opposite to that if you’re looking for an opportunity then you have to show it in short in your headline.
You can mention “I’m looking for a change or looking for an opportunity”.
Make sure to add this line right after mentioning your skill and currently active company.
Your headline should be keyword-rich so that anyone can easily find you on the search results of your LinkedIn profiles.
2. Make sure to mention each detail:
Suppose you’re a Digital Marketer then it’s nonsense to mention only “Digital Makerketer in this particular organization”.
Instead of that, you should mention your jobs and responsibilities inside the organization.
Suppose you’re working as an SEO Expert and handle various operations in SEO like on-page and off-page, keyword research, backlink creation, etc. Then you just need to mention in your LinkedIn profile each and every detail.
LinkedIn should be treated like your resume that’s why you need to consider it that way.
Just like you take care of your CV.
You mention each and every detail in your CV, you just need to consider adding all the details inside your LinkedIn profile.

4. Endorse other people and good to be endorsed by others:
As all of you are aware the term endorsement.
An endorsement is something that people give to others.
Just take an example if you have mentioned 20-25 skills on your profile then people who look at your profile will give a thumbs up to your skill and that you’re good in that way.
It’s good to endorse other people and it’s also good to ask others to endorse you. The endorsement is something that helps the recruiter to decide whether you’re suitable for the role or not.
It’s good to endorse your connections and there is nothing wrong with asking your connection to endorse you.
When people endorse your skills, it helps recruiters to decide whether you’re suitable for that role or not.
