How to Check Your Keywords for LinkedIn: Part 2


There are numerous ways to analyze keywords for your resume, LinkedIn profile, website, blog, social media posts, etc. Let’s review more tools!

In last week’s article, I mentioned using the Jobs tab on the LinkedIn profile to look up keywords, as well as Google Trends.

Today we will explore some other ways, including using some keyword analyzers, such as the following (though there are many more):

Another way is to use the LinkedIn Resume Builder feature. When you are viewing your profile, click the MORE button, and BUILD A RESUME.

Click on NEW RESUME (based on your LinkedIn profile) and enter your target job title. Click APPLY, and you will see the keyword check in the Resume Insights on the right-hand column, and it should also suggest some keywords for you.

The LinkedIn Career Explorer tool is another way. You can enter a job, and it lists the skills needed for the job. Also, it lists the skill overlap, skills to build, popularity, and more.
