So I've been on Google, and most websites seem to think it is a good idea apart from one which said it was basically the worst thing you could do. It gave reasons such as: 1) If you have to link to your LinkedIN, your CV must be ****. 2) It will distract the recruiter and 3) The recruiter may go through your network and find someone better than you.
I thought it was probably a good idea since there is only so much you can fit on a page and although I don't have any recommendations yet (just left College), it will be good when I do, but that made me think twice.
Any thoughts, ideas? This is assuming, obviously, you have a proper LinkedIN address and not something retarded like linkedin.com/iadfhiaih938983rprofile?id29i20
Possibly the dumbest suggestion that I've heard in a long time unless you think HR are interested in the X amount of insights day you've attended.
All the important information should be on your CV and I don't see why your Linkedin will be all that much different especially at such an early stage.
It will only hurt if your linkedin profile is ****. Make sure it's interesting, relevant, and no typo's. A picture of you looking smart and attractive won't hurt either.
Recruiters cant be bothered to look at 2 pages CV's so I dont think they ll find the time to look at your linkedin profile.
I doubt it would play against you though but its also very unlikely to make any difference.
