Resume to replace CV? Recorded in 2012 and revisited by the CFA magazine in 2016, Jared Redick predicted in his video clip that the growing influence of LinkedIn would overshadow our own CV. Indeed, now our LinkedIn profile reaches out to an audience so wide that we ourselves may not fully comprehend, opening ourselves to opportunities never open before. One day, I may be contacted by a hiring manager, the next a business partner.

Jared’s detailed presentation gave his audience a deep insight into how we should present ourselves on LinkedIn, from the choice of photo to what exactly we should write to be concise yet impressive in each section of our LinkedIn profile.

By getting your profile right, both offline and online, you are off to a great start in securing your next career move.
