Tips to attract career opportunities

As the job market continues to evolve, LinkedIn shares the following tips for Filipino job seekers and professionals: 

  • Create a standout profile. Be sure your LinkedIn profile is up to date to stand out to recruiters. LinkedIn members with a profile photo have 21 times more views and up to nine times more connection requests than members who don’t. Be sure to include a summary of your background and highlight your key skills. By enabling the’ Open to Work’ feature in your profile, you may let recruiters and your network know you’re open to new opportunities. 
  • Look for in-demand roles. While the job market is tightening, LinkedIn’s Jobs on the Rise data shows that roles in areas such as medical, technology, and those that help drive business growth are among the fastest-growing jobs. If you’re looking at a career change, choosing wisely the industry that you enter next is essential. 
  • Stay on top of the latest updates. In a shifting, competitive job market, the latest information may give you the necessary advantage. LinkedIn’s Get Hired newsletter provides timely job search advice and shows which companies are currently hiring, plus the Top Voices to follow to stay in the know.
  • Get interview-ready. Employers will be looking for the best fit, so before each application, think long and hard about why the role is for you. How can you demonstrate your qualifications? Why should they hire you over someone else? By using tools such as LinkedIn interview prep, you’ll be able to prepare yourself. 
  • Invest in yourself: Online courses may bridge the gap when learning new skills or brushing up on existing ones. LinkedIn Learning has over 18,000 courses available for anyone looking to upskill, including free access to Build a Career You Love No Matter the Market, A Career Strategist’s Guide to Getting a Job, Mel Robbins on Confidence, and A Bold New Approach to Goal Setting with Michael Bungay Stanier to help job seekers. 

LinkedIn is unlocking free LinkedIn Learning courses such as Recession Proof Career Strategies to support professionals in their next career move.
