The Global Talent Visa is an immigration route that grants talented tech specialists a fast track to working and living in the UK. Tech Nation – the official Home Office endorsing body – is trusted
to assess applications and endorse candidates. When it comes to making the Global Talent application, it’s important to evaluate your achievements and make sure that you include each and every proof of your talent. We have compiled a list of document types required in the application process and specific examples you can include.
As a professional, you probably know that you should update your CV regularly, especially considering that your resume is one of the documents you have to provide for your endorsement application.

But what about your LinkedIn profile?

LinkedIn, a business and employment-oriented online service, is crucial for professionals. According to LinkedIn’s statistics, the website has over 810 million members and 57 million companies, 77 job applications are submitted there every second, and 6 people are hired every minute on LinkedIn. We have also previously mentioned LinkedIn as one of the websites where a tech talent can start looking for a dream job in the UK.

However, many tend to give their profile on LinkedIn only a simple afterthought. Here are three more reasons ​​you should not disregard your LinkedIn profile as a Global Talent visa candidate.

1. LinkedIn is a valuable tool for networking opportunities

Networking is an essential building block for your career. Especially if the career is to be continued in the UK’s tech sector. Be sure to start networking with people in positions you want to be in or in British companies you want to work for. Build the bridges online before crossing them with a Global Talent visa in your hand.

2. Updated LinkedIn profile helps you keep your personal brand polished

Think about your LinkedIn profile as your detailed and large-scale available CV. How do you want the UK tech world to see you? LinkedIn is a powerful resource for building your personal brand, putting your best foot forward and advertising the very best of what you will bring to the British digital sector.

3. Your LinkedIn profile builds trust and credibility

So, if you are planning to showcase your professionalism as a leader or an emerging leader, make sure to act like it. Update your LinkedIn profile.
