Set up your LinkedIn for successful international job hunting

Setting Up Your LinkedIn for Success Before Moving Abroad and Job Hunting
 

Moving abroad and looking for new career opportunities? LinkedIn can be your secret weapon. It's the ultimate professional networking platform that helps you showcase your skills, connect with industry professionals, and uncover job openings. Our International Career Management team is here to help you set up your LinkedIn profile the right way before you make that big move. Let's dive in and make the most of this valuable resource.

 

Give your profile a boost

Before you hop on that plane, spruce up your LinkedIn profile. Start by reviewing your headline, summary, and work experience sections to reflect your current professional goals and achievements. Highlight relevant skills, certifications, and qualifications that will make you stand out to potential employers in your desired location. Use keywords and industry-specific terms to increase your visibility in search results.

 

Expand your network

Building a strong professional network is crucial when seeking job opportunities abroad. Connect with colleagues, friends, and industry professionals who have experience or connections in your target country. Engage with their posts, share valuable content, and establish yourself as an active and knowledgeable professional. Join industry-specific groups and participate in discussions to grow your network further.

 

Research the local job market

Before your big move, familiarise yourself with the job markets in your destination country. Follow local companies, industry influencers and the Robert Walters page on LinkedIn to stay updated on current trends and vacancies. Engage with their content and show genuine interest in their work. This will not only help you gain insights but also increase your visibility among potential employers.

 

Utilise job search tools

LinkedIn offers powerful job search tools to help you find relevant opportunities in your new country. Use the advanced search feature to filter job listings by location, industry, and more. Save your searches and set up job alerts to stay informed about new openings. Don't hesitate to reach out to Recruitment Consultants directly to express your interest and share your updated profile.

 

Leverage recommendations and endorsements

Recommendations and endorsements add credibility to your profile and strengthen your professional reputation. Reach out to previous colleagues, supervisors, and mentors, asking them to write recommendations highlighting your skills and work ethic. Similarly, endorse the skills of others in your network, as they may reciprocate and endorse your skills in return.

 

Setting up your LinkedIn profile effectively before moving abroad is crucial for securing a position. By updating your profile, expanding your network, researching the local job market, utilising job search tools, and leveraging recommendations and endorsements, you can increase your chances of finding exciting career opportunities. LinkedIn is a powerful platform that can significantly contribute to your professional success.
