    Representing Unique Career Paths on LinkedIn Representing Unique Career Paths on LinkedIn Presentation Transcript

    • Representing your unique career path on your LinkedIn profile
    • Most career paths today are not linear Some people hold temporary roles, or move to new roles within the same company… …or take time off, have gaps of unemployment, or change industries altogether
    • Our career paths are not meant to be simple, and the truth is, some of our most trying career (and life) moments can teach us the most.
    • Wherever your personal career journey has taken you, figure out how to communicate that story to a potential employer.
    • Scenario #1: Changing careers It’s common to develop new interests throughout the course of your career, and the secret to successfully doing so is learning how to articulate your rationale to hiring managers.
    • When it comes to telling your career story, don’t be afraid to use humor and personality.
    • Scenario #2: Out of work for several years Rather than focusing on why you have a long-term unemployment gap on your resume, emphasize your activities and accomplishments during this period.
    • Highlight the activities you pursued during your unemployment period
    • Scenario #3: Temporarily out of work Most employers understand that short-term unemployment periods are natural, so stay confident and truthful when talking about it.
    • Showcase what you’ve accomplished during your unemployment
    • Scenario #4: At-home Periods (Parenting) We are more than our careers, and many people make the decision to leave the workplace to raise their families.
    • Your resume is your story, so you don’t need to limit your accomplishments to the workplace.
    • Scenario #5: Part-time Positions Part-time employment is a common scenario, and it’s best to be straightforward when addressing it on your profile.
    • Treat your part-time position just as you would a full-time position
    • Scenario #6: Multiple part-term Positions If you have a string of short-term positions, bundle them into one large project on your LinkedIn profile.
    • Organize your short-term positions into one larger umbrella project
    • Scenario #7: Temp-to-hire Positions Landing a temporary position is a great way to work towards a full-time role within the company.
    • If you are converted to a full-time hire, be proud! Make sure to indicate that you transitioned into a direct hire position from your temporary role.
    • Your career path is as unique as you are By effectively positioning your career path on your LinkedIn profile, potential employers will better understand your unique qualifications and accomplishments. Discover more job search tips and insights at premium.linkedin.com/jobsearch/resources.html
