Resumes have many descriptions such as annoying, time-consuming, a pain in the a**. But most of all, I think they are known for being a powerful tool for job hunting.
What if you could generate an updated resume in a matter of minutes versus hours? What if this resume was also optimized for resume sorting algorithms? Well, guess what? This is all possible using LinkedIn.
In this blog, I will walk you through building a resume quickly using your LinkedIn Profile.
Step 1: Have an Updated LinkedIn Profile
If you don’t do this already, you should. Your LinkedIn profile is a living resume where headhunters and recruiters can quickly find you to match open job opportunities.
If you don’t have an account yet, go check out our other blog, where we discussed how to set up a profile for maximum impact.
Your goal is to transcribe things from your existing resume to your profile. And then keep updating your profile as you complete coursework, obtain certifications, and gain experience.
Step 2: Build Your Resume
On the next prompt, you want to click, “Create from profile.”
Add in the Job Title of your choosing. If you are a regular on this blog, you most likely should use “Security Operations Center Analyst” as your title.
At this point, feel free to fine-tune your resume. Use these general tips to get you going:
Step 3: Submit
And for the finale, submit this resume!
Keep your eyes open for entry level positions or those looking for only one year of experience. You will qualify for these roles in many cases. For the sites you are using to look at job listings, set up alerts so you can quickly respond and get on the top of the stack.
That’s it! 3 easy steps with LinkedIn. If you have been following the other recommendations on the blog, your resume should be fire by now. Your next step in getting a job will be preparing for the interview. Check out our new video on YouTube and our recent blog for additional tips:
