Impact of having a tech company on your resume/LinkedIn

Microsoft / Eng HiThere9
Apr 4 24 Comments

This is my first week of working for Microsoft. I’m soooo happy and excited!!!! :) I proudly (and loudly :D) updated my LinkedIn yesterday and I received notifications today that recruiters from Snapchat and Amazon looked at my profile. Is this normal? Is this what it’s like to have a major tech company on your LinkedIn/Resume?

    Yep. I get contacted by recruiters several times a week since I passed the 1 year mark at Amazon

    Big names will get recruiters to check you out. I get random requests throughout the week, too, despite not being part of *The* FANG.

    Since I joined Amazon I got significantly less recruiter requests on LinkedIn. And those that I get are from no name companies that have no frking clue. I guess it's because I joined Amazon in Canada and not in the US.

      Write something interesting about your work at Microsoft.
      There is also an option in your LinkedIn account that you can use to anonymously increase your chances of being shown to recruiters, but you shouldn’t really active it unless you are really looking for a job

      You need keywords. This is the same as SEO

    I mean it also depends what you do and how you sell yourself. Keep your description results oriented and have it line up with an area you want to work into and you're golden
