Chris Brown, director of UK talent solutions at LinkedIn, said: "January is the busiest time of the year for LinkedIn members updating their profiles as they return from the Christmas holidays refreshed and considering new career moves. In order to attract the best talent, employers should be making sure their online presence reflects what makes them special as an employer and stands them apart from the competition for talent."
