Find your SEO Job on Linkedin

Tuesday, 23 September 2008

Finding a SEO job in Australia is getting easier because the industry is more mainstream and the demand for skilled professionals is growing at a high rate. However, it is always better to hear about the best job opportunities as they arise. If you want to be the first to apply, you need to make sure that your job search skills are up to date.

In the previous post how to find a SEO job in Australia published last year, we discussed some of the ways to find your dream job including classified and jobs websites, digital recruitment agencies and SEO companies.

One thing we did not mention is Linkedin! In the last couple of weeks, I have received quite a few job offers from Linkedin without even searching... If you are looking for a job, this is definetly the place to be.

What is Linkedin
For those who do not know,LinkedIn is an online network of more than 25 million experienced professionals from around the world, representing 150 industries. It is basically like Facebook, but your profile is your resume and your "friends" are your collegues, professional relations, suppliers and more!
The great thing about Linkedin is that it is free and simple, you just need to create your profile and start "networking".

Few Tips to improve your job search on Linkedin

- Use the Job Function: Linkedin has a job function, use it! Just click on the job tab, enter you search criteria and discover all the job offers in your area.

- Keep your profile updated: In Linkedin, you profile is your resume, so if you want to look "attractive" to recruiters, make sure your profile is up to date with your latest information. Also make sure that you give enough information about what you do and did. Recommendations have a postive impact too.

- Join SEO Groups: Like Facebook, you can join a group on Linkedin. Joining a group allows you to connect with people in the industry. There are quite a few SEO groups, but I have noticed that SEO Australia and Linkedin SEO are particularly active.

- Link with Recruiters:A lot of recruiters use Linkedin to source new candidates. Make their job easier by contacting them in the first place. Even if they do not have a job at this time, you will be part of their network and they might contact you with other opportunities.

- Link with Suppliers, Contractors and more: The more people you are linked to, the more chances you get. Take up the habit of sending Linkedin requests to people you meet at meeting or elsewhere. One day it will be useful.

You might find that it takes a while before receiving job offers. Be patient and keep improving your profile and expanding your network it will soon pay off. Also if you have any good feel free to let us know!
