However, some people don’t pay attention to notifications on their LinkedIn and some don’t check notifications on incoming emails.

In addition, there are also those who turn off notifications or don’t realize that the email connected to their LinkedIn is something important.

For example, you last updated about 6 months or even a few years ago. You can update LinkedIn by posting some of your work. But if it was about 1 year ago, it could be HR assume you are no longer active.

In addition, when you list a skill on your LinkedIn profile, you don’t even include or post any of your work related to that skill.
