1. Google results

When potential employers or social media contacts search Google, you your LinkedIn profile will often be in the top results.

If your profile is out-of-date and/or poorly filled in, it’s not a good reflection on you. Statistics show that around 93% of Google users click the first page results. That means potential contacts/employers are viewing your profile and if it’s lackluster you could be missing out on opportunities.

2. Networking

LinkedIn is a very efficient way to maintain and manage your network.

You can reconnect/connect with alumni, find former colleagues from previous jobs, and also have a database of emails and a point of contact for your connections, meaning you never have to worry about losing contact or falling out of touch. In essence, you should keep LinkedIn maintained and updated because it keeps this social media network managed, and as we all know networking can be the key in gaining a dream job.

LinkedIn is a great medium for developing and maintaining a personal brand.
