IS IT NECESSARY TO HAVE A LinkedIn PROFILE?

Having a LinkedIn profile is critical to your job search today and its importance is increasing each and every day. LinkedIn has a whopping 250 million members worldwide and is growing daily. LinkedIn combines the old concept of networking (which is typically the best way to find a job); and new on-line technology and social media.

CONSIDER THIS:

Recruiters use LinkedIn as a MAIN tool in finding candidates.

"CAN'T I JUST CUT AND PASTE MY RESUME INTO MY LinkedIn PROFILE?"

No. LinkedIn needs to complement your résumé, not mirror it. Due to the large amounts of characters LinkedIn allows in its various fields; you can highlight information that you just don't have room for on your résumé. This might be the difference in you getting noticed by potential employers. Moreover, there is information on your resume that shouldn't be included on your LinkedIn profile.
