LinkedIn has now expanded to the Japanese market, so what are you waiting for? Clearly the site has its big thinking cap on and knows that in order to be useful to all professionals it needs to be global, and as Thomas Friedman wisely titled his book, “The World is Flat.”
So what does that mean for all of us? It means that we need to get on the horse and update our profiles for the global market. No, I don’t mean pepper in sections in various languages, although you can create your profile in various languages if you want to. But what I’m talking about specifically is the ability of other professionals to find you easily when searching for key terms.
Make sure to highlight your accomplishments and rearrange your profile to showcase your global knowledge. Make sure to stand out to the crowd by setting your profile up in a clean and concise manner. Just as no one will read a 4 page resume, no one is going to scroll down to finally see your experience. Organize, edit and succeed!
