Experienced Marketing Professional ----- or ----C. Mary Smith Transitioning Military Member Logistics Manager Supply Chain Transportation Supervisor Fleet Coordination LinkedIn Symbols LinkedIn Character Count LinkedIn The Header Hack # 1: My current search for LinkedIn, that I learned at a Recruiting Conference that had upwards of 1000 recruiters in attendance: (seeking OR seeker OR "looking for" OR "in search of" OR "open to" OR "new job" OR "actively pursuing" OR "pursuing new" OR
"searching for" OR "new opportunity" OR "new opportunities" OR "available for" OR "transition" OR "transitioning" OR "separating" OR "unemployed") ..And then I put in the terms that I am looking for Seeking Human Resources Bottom line: Recruiters ARE looking to make long-term connections? But when positions need filled, we need to know that who we are reaching out to are available soon, if not immediately. LinkedIn The Summary Gets 2000 characters. The digital first impression Does it have
spice? Is it authentic? Where is the value? How is it formatted? Are there keywords? Ready/Set/Action LinkedIn The Experience Job Title 100 characters (#3 in SEO) Description: 2-3 sentence overview (paragraph) with 2-3 accomplishments
(bullets). Front load achievements Use action verbs Use keywords Demilitarize Less is more Proper grammar and spelling LinkedIn Skills & Endorsements Extra weighting in search algorithm 50 skills to be endorsed, make them count! Allows connections to quickly affirm your skills and expertise

LinkedIn Recommendations Hi [first name], I hope all is well with you. I am preparing to depart from the military and pursue a civilian career.

I'd love it if you could touch on Y initiative and our collaboration on Z. Just three to five sentences is all I'm after. I know a recommendation from you will significantly elevate my profile. I greatly appreciate your time, and hope to hear
from you soon. Thank you, LinkedIn Connections 50 connections for a complete profile and 500 connections to be taken serious. Always add to the connection request.
