LinkedIn Blog imageWhen talented people change jobs they seek challenge, interesting work, the opportunity to learn and grow, and an environment (culture/fit) within which they can achieve . 

 They see their prospective manager as being key in helping ensure that they continue their track record of achievement.

 They seek a manager who like them is an achiever, someone who they can learn from and someone who has a track record of mentoring, nurturing and developing people.

In the process of people looking for or considering a new job it is not usual for them to “check out” their prospective manager, both though their own networks and from their on-line research.  Their findings can often be the difference between them continuing with the recruitment process or pulling out.

 Look at your own profile and ask the question would I work for me?  And what can I do to my profile to be seen as someone that talent wants to work for or with?

There are a wide range of LinkedIn training specialists who can assist at both an individual and corporate level. One such person is Karen Hollenbach of Think Bespoke  https://www.linkedin.com/company/3069256/
