Haven’t created a LinkedIn profile yet? We understand that. Maybe you never really saw the need to make one. After all, you update your resume regularly, you’re diligent in reaching out to companies, and there are online job search websites with their very own pre-formatted resume. So what do you need LinkedIn for?
It’s no question why some people don’t have a LinkedIn profile. To some, it’s just more cumbersome. Resumes are still the most convenient, popular option when it comes to employment reach.
However, technology has evolved and has affected every industry – including human resource. While some companies still accept your printed resume (some will still ask for it, really), but talent scouting and sourcing has gone online. This is where LinkedIn comes in handy for HR personnel.
With thousands and millions of talents that could qualify, it would be a whole lot easier for recruiters to do a quick search online and trim down their sources – and LinkedIn is the best place to easily find qualified individuals.
