Location is Key

Your zip code is a type of keyword on LinkedIn.

There are over a half of billion professionals on the platform - help people find you!

This five digit number gives your network a clue on where you want to land that new job or client so you come up in relevant search results.

Be strategic. Your listed zip code doesn’t have to be where you live. It can be where you work or somewhere in the middle. Are you looking to relocate? Insert your desired zip code instead. This way you will pop up in recruiter searches for your location of choice.
