LinkedIn Enables Users To Add An Intro Video to Their Profile
With intro videos, LinkedIn users can improve their profile and use a brand new Creator mode.
LinkedIn updates user profiles to add introductory videos and implements a whole new ‘Creator‘ mode.
LinkedIn helps users to adjust to the search era of the virtual job with these new features.
Last month, 79 percent of hiring managers agree that video is increasingly relevant when it comes to engaging with or vetting applicants. A LinkedIn study carried out by 1,009 hiring managers and 2,101 job seekers in the US.
Nearly 80% of job seekers want better ways for recruiters and recruitment managers to stand, and 60% believe a video can be taken as the next cover letter.
The new LinkedIn updates are built for recruiters and applicants alike to boost their recruitment experience.
Look at what is going to start this week.
Story of Video Cover
LinkedIn users will soon be able to add a cover story to their profile so that they can personalize their first video contact with a recruitment manager or recruiter.
An orange ring appears around a picture when a user uploads a cover story. When the profile is taped, a vertical full-screen video of the self-shot introduction of the user is opened.
“For job seekers, a Cover Story is a great way to introduce yourself to hiring managers by sharing your career goals, providing a peek at your personality, and showcasing your communication skills…
If you’re a freelancer, you can attract new clients by using a Cover Story to talk about your services.”
More information about how to record and upload a cover story will be available when the feature officially rolls out.
The work of the content creators has been planned to feature a new feature for LinkedIn profiles, appropriately entitled Creator mode.
Users can add hashtags with the creator mode to display their topics most frequently. When creator mode is enabled the featured user and activity parts are moved to the top of the profile.
You will also see, when creator mode is turned on, the “Connect” button is changed to a “Follow” button.
Another advantage of activating creator mode is that users’ profile backgrounds will display live broadcasts when they’re streaming, further increasing the visibility of their content.
Service Pages For Freelancers
Freelancers on LinkedIn can create dedicated service pages to list what they provide to clients.
Service pages are linked to user accounts, which enables the attraction of new users from LinkedIn directly.
Fields to be predicted
You can also add your favorite gender pronouns at the top of your profile to LinkedIn users.
The study of LinkedIn found that 70% of job-seekers believe that recruiters and recruitment managers are aware of their sexual pronouns and 72% agree and think that they display respect.
This is an optional addition to the LinkedIn profiles, and if you don’t want users to fill it out.
All the features in this post are being introduced by users throughout the week.
