LinkedIn is one of the most powerful tools in today’s world of recruiting, online presence and professional development. As of 2021, it has 722 million users. 40 million people use it to search for jobs every week. 3 people are hired through LinkedIn every minute. 55 million companies are there. That’s only a few of many stats provided by Hootsuite. One of the ways to stand out among the crowd of 722 million is to personalize everything you can, incl. the link to your profile.
