We hear plenty of discussion about how job seekers should optimize their profile on Linkedin and there are many ways recruiters can use that service for sourcing, but what about optimizing your own profile, as a recruiter or hiring agent, for being found BY job seekers in search?

Do you have any tips for being found in searches by job seekers on Linkedin when hiring?

Firstly try and fill all the fields including profile, job history, description, academics etc. Every information you put into these boxes gives you more visibility.

Profile section - this is very important to fill in rightly. This defines what and who are you? What are your specializations? What makes you different? What are you best at? e.g. Project Manager in banking/financial services industry with PRINCE2 certification. Presently working on payments module.

Keywords - put all the unique keywords related to your profile. e.g. payments, banking, financial services, bank, project, PRINCE2

Put your entire history of the career - let it sound like your resume but briefly. Remember LinkedIn is not a job board.

Ask for recommendations - But don't OverDO it.

These are few to list....
