🐋 Wait, what are the benefits of posting content on Linkedin exactly?

And we have a secret...and you're the first to know

But before we get to our BIG SECRET—let’s talk about posting on Linkedin 🕺

Why do Tech Pod members post original content on Linkedin?

What are they gaining from it exactly?

These are the questions I had when I first got on Linkedin. 🤔

Well, turns out they do for several reasons—and they’re really good ones.

Let’s get you in on 3 of their reasons why! ⭐️

1. Recruiters Are Looking For Soft Skills

Creativity, persuasion, collaboration, adaptability, and emotional intelligence

These are reported as the top 5 soft skills businesses are looking for. 🧐

The problem is: they’re difficult to measure.

But posting regularly on Linkedin provides recruiters with clear and genuine demonstrations of these skills.

The best examples of this are posts that are value-driven, eye-catching, and lead to engaging conversations in the comments. These showcase those top soft skills. 👏

2. They Want To Meet Awesome People

Linkedin is all about making friends—or networking as some call it.

Begin building real relationships with your connections by providing value to them first through the ideas and experiences you share in your posts. ✍️

+ Posts like these create opportunities to start authentic conversations in the comments!

Which will lead to life-changing friendships, connections, and opportunities. 💥

3. Personal Branding

Your personal brand is what you are known for and how people experience you—it’s about bringing who you are to what you do. ✨

When you build your personal brand online, you’re not only marketing your skills, achievements, and strengths but also your personality, values, and passions.

Posting regularly provides potential employers and connections to have an authentic understanding of who you are as a whole human.

Because you know—you’re not a robot. 💙
