LinkedIn Optimization

Why is LinkedIn so dangerous?
Because it was designed to “advertise” your activity

Don’t get caught job hunting!

We can show you how to confidentially navigate this most dangerous game.

LinkedIn Advertises Your Activity
LinkedIn is a networking site that was designed to encourage people to expand their networks. The problem is that LinkedIn advertises your new connections to everyone you know.

Your employees are automatically able to monitor your connections because when you connect with a recruiter, LinkedIn announces it.

Example email from LinkedIn Messaging:
“Your CEO just connected with an Executive Search Lead Recruiter at Korn Ferry.”

LinkedIn also tells your connections what you do:
• When you edit your profile
• What groups you join
• Who you endorse

There are 46 more settings on LinkedIn that can get your name on the radar of your Board and employees.

Jackson Stevens can optimize your LinkedIn settings so that they work for you, and not against you.

Candidate & Search Firm Testimonials from LinkedIn

William Noble, Goldman Sachs

Jackson Stevens optimized my LinkedIn Profile and built my resume and I was able to get an interview for the highest ranking position in my field.


Jeff Sandbothe, Chief Executive Recruiter, GRN of Lake St. Louis

I have had the pleasure of working with Dean on several executive searches, and he has done an impeccable job. The JSR 7 Dimensions have been instrumental in allowing my executive candidates to fully understand and communicate the value they have delivered throughout their careers. By having a resume that speaks to the Client’s needs, I have a candidate that outshines the competition, allowing the discussion to move to matters of substance, and away from a “resume review.” Dean’s resume & candidate preparation, vast network of executives across industries, and executive search experience combine to create a significant value-add to the services I provide my Clients and Candidates. The proof is in the profit.


Denis Bilodeau, Managing Partner, GRN Bridgewater | Executive Search, Healthcare

I wish I would have had the good fortune of meeting JSR about 10 years ago. The clarity and succinctness of the Jackson Stevens 7 dimensions and how it conveys the quality and talent of candidates I submit to employers is unmatched. Employers find out up-front, before even meeting the candidate, that he / she can do the job and how well. That means more interviews, more placements, and more revenue. It’s refreshing to finally have met someone who writes resumes and presentations who is also an expert on executive search. If you are an executive or leadership candidate reading this and need a referral, please contact me. I will be happy to connect you.
