In my recent conversation with Andrea Coombes of Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch, we discussed the common pitfalls most job seekers (boomer-age and otherwise) make in using LinkedIn.
Of course, we covered tips on including a professional photo, strengthening your LinkedIn Summary, and joining the right Groups.
However, the largest mistake I see most job seekers make is simply waiting.
Why? Because most employers have become reluctant to contact candidates who seem to have an invisible or barely-there digital identity.
