JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — What job prospects post on LinkedIn might not be what potential employers see, according to a new career development infographic published today by career expert Jessica Holbrook Hernandez, president of Great Resumes Fast, based in Jacksonville.

The infographic shows candidates what’s changed and how you need to update your LinkedIn profile to make sure potential employers see your information in the most favorable light. To see the infographic, go to http://buff.ly/2uobTUe

«Have you ever wondered what the employer receives and sees once you apply to a posted position on LinkedIn? I’ll share insider information how to use LinkedIn so that you’re positioned as the best candidate,» she said.

«Ultimately, a few small changes will show the employer you’re the best fit. These timely tips could increase the number of responses you’ll receive from your applications on LinkedIn,» she said.

Employers spend as little as six seconds looking at each LinkedIn profile to determine if prospects are a good fit or a bad fit.

«This new information is critically important for job hunters,» she said.

Gaze tracking technology shows that employers spend 80 percent of their time looking at name, current title and company, current position and start date, previous title and company, and education.

Great Resumes Fast’s Four Key Takeaways of new changes in LinkedIn for job applicants are:

  • Employers see mutual connections in your profile – including your current employer.
  • Job hunters should maximize relevant skills and endorsements. This is a new feature. Research the skills that prospective employers value the most. Then reorganize your profile so those skills are seen. 
  • Impress them with your resume. Use a modern design in a PDF format.
  • Brand your current position and title with a one-line statement that will resonate with them.
