Mixed Messages on LinkedIn

LinkedIn has become a place to see and be seen. Job seekers and employers are using it. I recently facilitated a Career Assistance Ministry session in town. One of the participants asked how to handle “different versions of her resume on LinkedIn.” The consensus of the group was to have a GENERAL, HIGH LEVEL version of your resume on LinkedIn. This advice was supported in a separate conversation I had with an HR executive. This HR leader recently reviewed the Linked-In profile of a job candidate. The title on the resume she received was dramatically different than what was on the Linked-In profile. This made her skeptical. Advice to job seekers? The world is watching.
