Why saying “looking for new opportunities” on LinkedIn means you’ll never get any!

16102010_sOne of the things I see people constantly write on their LinkedIn profile headlines is “currently seeking new opportunities.”

Seeing this drives me slightly nuts.

You may be tempted to do this, thinking that it might help your job search.

The reality is, it can brand you as a bit desperate.

Employers are hiring you on the value you can add to them, not so much on whether you are immediately available.

If they need you badly enough and have to poach you from someone else – they will.

So, before you even start to think about writing your LinkedIn profile, watch my video for some quick tips on managing your online brand.

Then after you watch it, I’d love to hear your tips as well.
