5 Reasons Recruiters Are Ignoring Your LinkedIn Profile

"Sixty-four percent of recruiters say they only used LinkedIn as a recruiting tool...

Among the possibilities:

1. You're not connected to recruiters -- or many other people.

2. You don't have a profile photo -- or your photo is blurry, outdated, or otherwise not selling you well.

3. Your headline is boring -- or full of typos."

ESL Teacher - Seoul, South Korea
"I attended CSB/SJU to become an English teacher, majoring in English and minoring in secondary education. I did not find out about teaching abroad until my junior year. Once I heard that I could get paid and travel, I knew that teaching in Korea was what I would do once I graduated."
