Land A Job Using LinkedIn

Updated: Sep 13, 2023

As a game artist, it's important to showcase your skills and talent to potential employers.

LinkedIn can be a great platform to do just that.

Here are some actionable tips to help you get noticed on LinkedIn and potentially land a job:

1. Optimize your profile:

Make sure your LinkedIn profile is complete and up to date.

* Update your banner: Create an image that is relevant to your career and visually appealing. You can use a professional headshot, an image of your work, or a graphic design that reflects your personal brand.

* Write an attention-grabbing opening line: Use this space to highlight your skills and experience in a way that will grab the reader's attention. For example, you could write something like:

"Experienced game artist specializing in character design and 3D modelling" or "Passionate about creating immersive game worlds through concept art and level design".

* Include a clear and concise summary of your skills and experience, in your bio, sell yourself.

2. Network with other game industry professionals:

LinkedIn is a great platform for networking with other professionals in the game industry. Connect with people you have worked with in the past, or reach out to industry professionals you admire. Participating in LinkedIn groups related to the game industry can also help you expand your network and make connections. You can also join the Game Dev London Discord which has over 3000 members. There are lots of events for networking.

3. Share your work:

Use LinkedIn to showcase your portfolio and the projects you have worked on. Share images of your work, as well as any relevant articles or blog posts you have written. This is a great way to demonstrate your skills and expertise to potential employers. You can also write articles (like this one!) here on LinkedIn.

4. Engage with the community:

LinkedIn is more than just a place to post your resume. Participate in industry-related discussions and share your thoughts and insights. This will help you establish yourself in the game industry and make you more visible to potential employers.

5. Use LinkedIn to apply for jobs:

Many game companies use LinkedIn to post job openings and accept applications. Make sure you have a strong LinkedIn profile and portfolio, as this may be the first thing a potential employer sees when considering you for a job. You can setup job alerts on LinkedIn so you get notifications the second new opportunities are posted.

By following these tips, you can increase your visibility on LinkedIn and potentially land a job in the game industry!
