That means they’re missing out on hundreds of potential jobs.

Seven quick tips to help you use LinkedIn to find a job in Australia

LinkedIn is way beyond being just a bucket of business cards.

Never before have we had so much information about companies and the individuals who work in them, available on demand.

More than that though, if you’re looking for a job and are routinely adding people to your LinkedIn network, you may well have a connection who can introduce you to someone who works for your future employer or who is associated with that company.

Here are a few quick tips on how to use LinkedIn to find a job.

1. You can optimise your LinkedIn profile to be found in searches by recruiters, headhunters and employers – many of whom are using LinkedIn as their first place to look for hidden talent.

2. You can use LinkedIn to create a powerful brand and lure people to your profile with content they’ll find useful.

3. You can use LinkedIn to approach employers directly to find a job and bypass recruiters altogether.

4. You can build up your network and approach them to help you research opportunities or make direct contact with employers.

5. You can create a group around a professional interest you have and have your expertise be sought out by others.

6. You can follow company pages on LinkedIn to find out more about organisations you want to work for, and use this detail in your applications.
