Dialing in your skills on LinkedIn can be very useful in your job search. Recruiters use keywords to find potential candidates, and keyword matches can be used to measure a candidate’s qualifications over other applicants. When you sign up for LinkedIn’s premium subscription, you have access to LinkedIn’s Competitive Intelligence assessment. This assessment shows you what specific job-related skills you have or don’t have compared to other candidates. You can take inventory of those skills that are listed and then make adjustments to your skills section within your profile to give yourself a competitive advantage. I’ve created a video tutorial that walks you through how to evaluate and update your skills on your profile.
