    No use of LinkedIn, have been using it for a decade, not helped in any way. Blind helped but LinkedIn never, got similar response in my network.

      With LinkedIn, you get what you put out.

      Did you try listing out all the languages and technologies you’ve worked with on your profile? If not, that’s probably why you aren’t showing up on keyword searches.

      Just list out all the tech you’ve worked with and put some meaningful content in job descriptions (you can copy paste your resume in that section).

      Treat it like a resume.

    I got a great job from LinkedIn. Recruiters actually do a good job every once and a while.

    A good profile can only help, not hurt, so I think it’s a big oversight to neglect it. And you could get your dream job from it.

    I really like the concept of LinkedIn. I hope it replaces resumes and job boards one day.

    Unless you work in a trade, you should be using LinkedIn. It’s not just a place to look for jobs. You can build your reputation and influence in your field, create advocates and find mentors, and establish relationships with future clients.

    I onboard every employee with social best-practices, teach personal branding, and social selling (on top of my day-to-day role).
