Did you know that there is room on LinkedIn, Facebook (BeKnown), and other social media websites to list your work history? This is especially important on LinkedIn.
When you are creating or updating your profile, you should include your work history, titles, companies, duties, responsibilities, and contributions. This makes it very easy to connect with previous employers, colleagues, coworkers, and employees. Then you can ask for references and recommendations!
This also makes it very easy for potential employers to see your skill set and previous experience. If you have not sent a resume yet, then a potential employer can start looking at your background and work history. If you have already sent a resume, then the employer can see that you are consistent by comparing both your resume and profile.
You do not have to list every detail of your previous experience, but I would suggest highlighting any experience or education that relates to the jobs that you are seeking. I would also recommend updating your profile and resume every 4-6 months or every time that you start a new job (whichever is more frequent).
