LinkedIn is an extremely valuable resource for job seekers. It’s a place to network, and also a place to get plenty of free, practical advice about your job search and your overall career. The CEO of Great Resumes Fast, Jessica Hernandez, is an active LinkedIn user who frequently shares her advice and insights on the platform about job searches, resume writing, and career advancement.
Her practical, engaging, and useful advice is followed by tens of thousands of professionals and career experts. For the second consecutive year, Jessica has been named a Top Job Search Expert To Follow by JobScan. Receiving this honor in both 2019 and 2020, Jessica has long been viewed as a top-trusted source for job search and career advice.
In describing why Jessica was chosen as a top expert, JobScan noted: “Jessica offers her following a ton of great tips for all facets of the job search. Her content is varied in format and helpful for anyone looking to improve their personal brand, resume, and chances of landing a job they love.”
Jessica has also been recognized for her expertise in other ways. Recently, LinkedIn editor Andrew Seaman featured her in an article about how job seekers can stand out in a crowded job market. With the current economic uncertainty in the country and across the world right now, this is a timely topic about which Jessica has much to offer job seekers. Among her suggestions are to use your resume in part to address challenges you’ve overcome and to put attention-grabbing information at the top of your resume. You can read the full article here.
With her regular engagement on LinkedIn, Jessica is practicing what she preaches. She advises job seekers to have an optimized LinkedIn profile—and use it to network, to conduct research, and to showcase your own expertise.
If you are job searching and don’t have a LinkedIn profile, Jessica recommends creating one. It is an excellent way to network while most in-person events are being canceled and nearly everything has been moved to a virtual setting. If you do have a LinkedIn profile but haven’t optimized it or simply aren’t actively using the platform, now is as good a time as any to update it and start actively using it. In addition to networking, you can find plenty of advice from human resources professionals, recruiters, and industry-specific experts.

Are you tired of your resume being rejected by applicant tracking systems? I know how frustrating it is to submit your resume and receive no response. I hate seeing qualified people never break through the screening process. It shouldn’t be that way. That’s why I created this guide and I encourage you to download the FREE PDF so you can start seeing better resume response rates!
