This post is not sponsored by Graduate Goals, I paid for the service and had a 15% voucher from Twenty-Something City. All my views are my own.
At the end of 2018, I was thinking about how I have been using LinkedIn a lot more but my profile is weak. I was playing around with it myself but I still was not happy.
Until I came across Twenty-Something City blog, she had used a company called Graduate Goals who help develop CV’s, Cover Letters, Job Applications and LinkedIn profiles. They also guide you on career coaching and job search sessions.
Intrigued to know more, I read the blog and talked to Alice (Twenty-Something City) and she spoke highly of the service. So I wanted to make use of Graduate Goals to help improve my chances of connecting and networking with the right people.
How does it work?
So I contacted Graduate Goals and asked about giving my LinkedIn Profile a facelift, Carrie got back in touch with me and gave me instructions on how I had to get started.
I had to set up a temporary login that Carrie could use so she could have a look what she had to work with. Carrie has experience and knowledge of journalism and media so knew exactly what to do.
After the login was done, Carrie wanted a previous CV and a completed LinkedIn form that she sent me.
Then it started
After I had done this, Carrie worked on creating and updating my profile to help me stand out. She was interested in my blog and wanted to know my DA, monthly readers and my followers on my social media channels. Carrie also asked if I had ever worked on any campaigns or brands for my blog, if I had much experience and what my biggest achievement(s) have been so far, apart from your degree. Any awards, projects, feedback, collabs etc that I am proud of.
My Enhanced LinkedIn Profile
They had added 10 relevant skills so that could be ranked higher in searches.
My Career Visibility section has been reworked and updated in line with my aspirations and targeted careers. More relevant jobs have been added to my profile is now more visible for relevant opportunities according to Linkedin’s own search facilities and algorithms.
I am very happy with the results and I have managed to gain more connections and views because of it.
I would definitely recommend using Graduate Goals to help boost your career.
