Standing out professionally is one of the hardest things to do in today’s job market; and proving your English is becoming more important than ever.
Today, EF Education First announced it has joined LinkedIn’s Add to Profile program to make it both free and easy to officially showcase your English skills on LinkedIn.
The EF Standard English Test (EFSET) is the world’s first free standardized English test, developed by EF Education First. Thanks to the strategic relationship between EF and LinkedIn, anyone who takes the EFSET now has the option to post their results on their LinkedIn profile.
LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, has already teamed up with some of the biggest names in education like Coursera and Microsoft to make it possible for LinkedIn members to more easily update their LinkedIn profiles with certifications with just one-click. EFSET is one of the first English Language Certification resources to provide this feature.
Having certifications listed on your LinkedIn profile can help people find you for new opportunities – on average, LinkedIn members with certifications receive 6 times more profile views.
Get started now by visiting www.EFSET.org. Take a test, and when you’re happy with your score, make sure to post it to LinkedIn by clicking on the “Add to Profile” tab next to your score.
Showcasing your English skills on LinkedIn will let hiring managers and potential partners know that you can communicate in the lingua franca of global business in our increasingly interconnected world.
