Depends on who your audience is. Sourcers/recruiters look for key words (aka the more the better + adding “skills” on LinkedIn will help get you included in more searches). Hiring managers will quickly read through what is written so bullet points and one liners are good. But pretty much anything is better than nothing.

In general, having had many years in recruiting, I always suggest building your LinkedIn out as much as possible. Highlight key things you did (build out KPIs, people management and team size, domain experiences in XYZ hard skills if a SWE) and make your job titles be standard for the field you want to go into (e.g if wanting a career as a program manager, make sure your current job title is program manager since sourcers use key words to find profiles on LinkedIn. Of course, only do this if you’re actually doing program management work in your current role. Don’t do this if you don’t have program management experience).

I would keyword-fill your main description so it gets noticed and then go into a little depth on the job descriptions.

Write out bullet points, it will help recruiters with key words

Write out bullet points, it will help recruiters with key words

I'm a big fan of bullet-points. Definitely helps when screening a lot of candidates. Anything you can do to make the lives of recruiters better, go for it.

I think it's a great idea. Important to get a sense of all of your skills and responsibilities vary from role to role, company to company

I'd say you could bullet point your accomplishments more than the job role. Usually more important

Bullet points for sure, I tried paragraphs but didn't get as much interest in my profile until I revamped it. Helped that I had someone else rewrite it too

Hi Folks,

I have 6+ years of experience and currently working as a Sr. Software engineer. I got two opportunities and I'm confused selecting one.

1. Germany - 80k Euros with 30% tax bracket, so after tax, around $60k

2. Abu Dhabi - $98k, without taxes

Considering salary and the company, I'm inclined towards Abu Dhabi offer but considering the lifestyle, I'm more interested in moving to Europe.

Any inputs/suggestions or points to be considered while moving to these countries.

Thanks.
