I see LI posts saying a recruiter reached out to them and that’s how they get interviews/hired…but I can’t figure out what I need to become 1 of those people who get reached out to by recruiters on LI. I hired a 12 yr HR professional currently working at a tech company for a new resume and LI profile, I request new connections, like/comment posts…Recruiters, what’s the “Secret Sauce” to get recruited for tech when I’m a true external candidate (program mngr) & my network is all in healthcare?

I’m not sure that there’s a golden ticket to getting recruiters to reach out to you, but here are some things that could help!
1. Make sure you have “open to work” on your profile- at least viewable by recruiters if not publicly. That makes it much easier to find you when recruiters are searching.
2. In your experience section, have the descriptions reflect your resume! Responsibilities, accomplishments, numbers, skills, etc.
3. The more keywords you have on your profile, the more likely you’ll get hits in searches. Add skills that people can endorse, and good to have them in your role descriptions as well.
4. Have your “about” section include a summary of industries you have experience in, especially if the companies you’ve worked for are more obscure/smaller. Don’t expect your company or job title to be self explanatory!

Also, really important to start networking with people in tech! It will probably be tougher to get truly recruited into tech if you are in a different industry, so you’ll likely need to be more active in reaching out to people and getting referrals.

Everything this said above but also, your activity will make an impact. This meaning, you should have at least 500+ connections and should be liking posts daily, along with leaving a comment at least a week. I would suggest looking into health-tech companies.

I was offered a position through a recruiter and the company is now doing a background check. I haven’t received a written offer letter or started any paperwork.

After receiving the offer I turned down a final interview with another company. I’ve also been invited to another interview with someone else.

I don’t feel comfortable continuously turning down interviews if I don’t have a written offer or started any paperwork. I want to email HR about the process but what should I say?
