So let's play the scenario....you are a recruiter or hiring manager, you have got a resume that really appeals you, so you check out the person on LinkenIn...and woolah..it's the same resume again. This would build trust and confidence (as you see EXACTLY the same thing...now if you see see somthing diffferent, you read and investigate more.... perhpas you may like the peron more or perhpas you may reject the individual based on what you now know - oh he didi that...I don't want that person! ....so my question...Why expose yourself to ANOTHER 50/50 risk of elimintation?
Also, there are two types on individuals in the worls: The decision makers; and the `see more' analytical types. Unfortuntely most of the professionals fall in the second category while the enterpreneurs are in the fist one. With this said, why add fodder to the fire in `see more'? Thell them one sory in the resume ad stick with it at Linked In. This will make life easy for them and the candidate.
Do recruiters have the time to go hunting? I am given to understand that everyone is SO busy and time stretched that a canadidate has only some seconds to make an impression on the recruiter during the selection process.
Finally Inbound or Outbound, if you have one story (and hopefully a true story), peolple will trust you. After all it is all about trust and social fit, not sklls. Even a dog can be trained with nek skills.
Does my rant makes sense?
