What do recruiters want?
It’s the question every job seeker wants answered.

Editor’s Note: As shared in an earlier post this week, LinkedIn has launched a new microsite for our Veterans initiative tailored with tips, tools and information to help veterans find new opportunities across LinkedIn, including a free one-year Job Seeker subscription for all US veterans and current service men and women.

If there are any questions, please click the “Send Feedback” link on the Veterans Page.

Your volunteer experience counts and if you don’t include it in your profile, on your resume or when you’re negotiating for a promotion you’re not getting the credit you deserve.
